Personal Brand Website

A personal brand website is very different from every other website. Quite different from local businesses, eCommerce, or content-led businesses.

Every business’s long-term goal is to sell its products or services; however, to achieve this with a personal brand website your goal will be to nurture relationships with your audience. This is the core difference between a personal brand website and every other website out there.

As a personal brand website, everything you do counts as it is geared towards helping your audience KLT you (know, like, and trust you).

You are the product. It doesn’t matter what you sell

Your personality, your depth, your story, your voice. is what defines a great personal brand website, not the product

The truth is, with a personal brand website, customers aren’t even buying a product or service, they are buying into a story, a personality, and a promise. This can only happen if you’ve established industry authority and credibility.
