Personal Branded Websites
Personal branded websites can be great for individuals in certain industries! It is yourself as a website; showcasing you, your accomplishments and whatever you intend it to do! Why stress to create a brand name when you are the brand itself?
Who should have a Personal Branded Website?
Personal branded websites can be used by individuals in a wide range of industries.
Some of the most fitting would be:
- Doctors (Dentists, etc.)
- Health Care Practitioners
- Individuals with multiple avenues of business
- Job Seekers (see below)
Personal branded websites are great spaces to display your portfolio, work, information and interests.
And, if you are have a multifaceted business, it’s also a great landing page for visitors to see all your work collectively, before branching off and exploring each section in depth.
What to include on your website?
There are a few elements which should be included on every website:
- About You
- Contact Information
- SEO strategies (Search Engine Optimization) to ensure people can find your website!
I suggest you include an image of yourself (or a few) and your bio.
And the rest is up to you! The website can even go so far as to have E-commerce enabled to sell your products/services online.
Tips for Personal Branding on Social Media
I’ve always believed that as an entrepreneur, your personality plays a huge role in your business. So, as a personal brand, you can really let your personality shine!
You can still utilize social media streams like Facebook and Instagram while directing visitors back to your personal website.
Using Personal Branded Websites as Resumes
What can’t technology innovate? Instead of submitting a boring resume for a job application, or directing the hiring manage to your LinkedIn profile, why not direct them to your own personal website?
Also, a personal website is completely customizable to showcase your talents, and highlight your personality.
Always make sure to include relevant information that would normally be found on a resume. But in doing-so, you’re not limited to the boring every day format. What a great way to stand out!
