Branding Toolkit

BRAND: a promise to deliver benefits that are different from the competition.

When you know your brand, you will know how to plan.

The tools in this kit are geared toward developing a personal brand, but many can also help for business branding. A few that are for business branding can be adapted for a personal brand.

What are my strengths? What needs to be done to develop strengths? Who is the competition? What makes me unique and different?

ACTION PLAN
What do you do? How do you solve the problem that you are always chasing? Which channels will be most effective at reaching your target audience and getting your message across? How can you connect to a social cause you believe in?
PROGRESS
Benefits | Measures: Balanced Scorecard, Key Performance Indicators (KPI), Dashboard, Personal Annual Metrics, Personal Development Plan | Target Audience: Personas, demographics | Results

How can you most effectively communicate your message verbally and in print? How do you want people to feel when they interact with you? Are people delighted by their interactions with you?
