'The trick is to promote your brand with language that fires up people’s synapses, instead of sending them to sleep
Manchester (PRWEB UK) 29 May 2013
Offering something different to the crowd is essential when looking to win new business and generate new opportunities, personal branding expert Jennifer Holloway has said in a new Find the Edge article.
In the post, which was published today on the site, she discusses why flying under the radar is rarely a good idea, and how anyone can start to create their own personal brand immediately.
She said: 'People buy people - If you’re just a face in the crowd, you make it harder for them to spot you and, better still, buy into you.
'The trick is to promote your brand with language that fires up people’s synapses, instead of sending them to sleep.
'For instance, 'motivated, 'creative' and 'innovative' are amongst the most frequently used words on LinkedIn. How many words like these do you use?'
Holloway says that using bland, empty words like those can cause individuals to blend in all too easily, and by doing something different, it's easier to make ripples.
She said: 'Alternatively, why not look for words that are more precise in their description of your brand? Words that will sound more engaging when they hit people’s ears?
'For instance, instead of just saying you’re ‘approachable,’ why not say you’re ‘cordial’, ‘courteous’, ‘big-hearted’ or ‘gallant’?'
