Watching what successful people are doing is more important that listening to what they are saying. People forget how they got to where they currently are, so look at their past and current behaviors to determine how you should model them.
Personal interaction is huge in building your brand, and those who constantly interact with their followers and others quickly pass those don’t. Branching out to others’ sites and similar niche sites such as forums, vlogs and the like are also important.
Here are some of those that I mentioned who are taking branding to the next level. Most are under the radar in the large scheme of things but have more impact than many of the “a-listers” due to their insanely high level of interaction and community development.
- Allyn Hane is another video blogger and internet marketer who is kicking ass and taking names with his off the cuff, in your face, no B.S. approach to marketing online.
- Steve Sherron is another highly skilled video blogger (I guess compared to my shooting ability, everyone is highly skilled) who is on the fast track carving out his niche in video marketing online.
- Griz (no need for last name, cuz if you don’t know, you’ve been living under a rock) has dominated the make money online niche. This is reason enough to follow and learn from him with his blatantly helpful information you can take to the bank (literally).
- Last but certainly not least is my man Victor Franqui who single handily made Google change its algorithm (seriously) and still continues to dominate in making money online with more free information than you can shake a stick at.
What am I trying to get at?
The secret to marketing and building your brand online is to interact with everyone you can and model the people who are already successful at it. Don’t reinvent the wheel here people. Simply look at what others have done and do the same in your own niche. Love what you talk about, who you interact with and the rest will come in time. Start now. It’s that simple.
