There’s no denying it—humans are visual beings. We create, we adjust, we decorate. We learn better with visuals and process images faster than text.
So it’s no mystery why “brand” carries the connotation of “visuals” and nothing else.
But we know it’s so much more than that.
If your brand identity is the foundation of your personal brand, then your visual brand is the foundation of your brand identity. And therefore needs to be thought of early, and considered often when working through building your personal brand.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, public speaker, or just looking to grow your presence, a clear view of who you are, what you preach, and the change you’re making in your industry is the first of many steps to accelerate your business. A visual brand that reflects you and your goals helps you stand out in order to attract your ideal audiences.
New technologies are emerging faster than ever, and there are obstacles to success around every corner. With the release of Threads, the rebranding of Twitter to X, and other social media platforms yet to surface, it can seem daunting to plant seeds in this rapidly changing environment.
But it’s time to face the fears and the facts. Yes, the changing landscape can be a point of intimidation. But you can’t let fear or ambiguity be the wall between you and your ultimate goals.
Take the first step.
For aspiring entrepreneurs, the most crucial step is often the first one. You can tick the days off on your calendar for as long as you want, but nothing changes until you do something different.
Everyone starts somewhere.
As you venture into your new experience as a leader in your industry, there’s no doubt that there will be challenges. Don’t let this stop you from pursuing what you’re passionate about.
Solidifying your brand identity plays a HUGE role in stepping up to the plate as a leader. Your online presence is your new resume and your visual brand identity is the first line of defense. Visual branding is how you become memorable—to the people that matter most (A.K.A. your target audiences).
Building your platform will give you tangible results. Whether you’re the founder of a company, a corporate leader, an author, a creative, a coach, or something in between, creating a name for yourself online will bring more eyes to what you offer.
Taking the first step and turn your uncertainty into prosperity.
