Personal branding and sellers of smoke / 2 (by Andrés Pérez Ortega)

Following the thread of the post published last week on the personal brand and sellers of smoke / 1, this time we act Amplifier post published this morning's blog sherpa personal brand Andrés Pérez Ortega. Here's the content:

Coopetidores, looters and converts

A few months ago, in the event that was organized on Branding Personal, I met Guillem Recolons already Jordi Collell. It had long since the Google Alerts informing me of his work on topics Personal Brand, and I was thrilled to meet you personally. Yesterday launched a new project on Personal brand And I think worth comment here.

I suppose some will think I'm an asshole to speak well of my "competition". I'm not saying it is, but, of course, Yes I am, it's not because of that. I think a personal brand or business is strengthened if those are part of your market have a good level. A professional or a company can not rejoice for being the only market. That only it weakens and numbs.

When I worked in distribution, I learned that the best way to grow a category is with quality products, and the more, better. If someone is dedicated to meter "shit" in the market, just hurting everyone. Because, It has emerged whenever someone has tried to make things right in this matter, like my friend Mark Thomas or people I am my brand, I've made available.

For the project I'm commenting, just look at the level of professionals to realize that they will help professionalize this concept and bring it to a good level. And that's good for everyone. In addition, they have clearly understood that the Personal Branding is much more than a nice avatar or a Twitter account. It is a combination of Marketing, Coaching, Communication, Image, Company management ... and that is reflected in their profiles.

So I think that in this world of networks, some things have changed. What makes one affects the other. If you do things right, reinforces the position of others. We can no longer talk about competitors, but COOPETIDORES.

All this is especially important because one of the things that we agree is a vision of Branding Personal that requires effort, work and strategy.

Now that the websites that speak of multiply get rich with the Personal Brand, it is important to hear the voice of serious professional. You can identify vendehumo for their websites with huge red letters and exclamations in which things like "Lose 'are promised 15 kilos in three hours!!!”.

Each time a new interesting and attractive concept emerges as occurs when there is a catastrophe, multiply the "looters”. The same applies here. Of nowhere lots of sites that are dedicated to prostituting a concept not know and do not believe that clearly emerge.

Although these vultures ideas are not the only ones who have smelled money. Even worse are the "conversos”. Normally it is R2H2 people who until two days ago Personal Brand despised and considered myself a antisistema to talk about it.

Headhunters, outplacement professionals or executives of R2H2, They have suddenly started talking about Personal Branding as if they had invented them. Because that if, do not expect any of them to cite the work of those who came before and paved the way they now use.

Both the "conversos" somo "looters" are opportunists. Seize the moment, prey on and then switch activity. They are mutants such as influenza virus. When they have destroyed all, They seek a new "guest". That has happened with the coaching, with dospuntocero or any interesting trend.

I think we live in a world that no longer worth all. It is therefore essential to support and collaborate with those who do good things and who raise the level and reporting to weaken.

Earn easy and fast money with personal branding = FALSE

twitteábamos few days ago with friend Andrés Pérez Ortega, sherpa great personal brand, on whether to expose the false personal branding gurus who they base their message on the ease of getting quick income through personal branding.

We can say higher, but not clearer: Personal brand have to work thoroughly, must currársela. We all know that Rome was not built in a day.

We are sick to death of seeing appear like mushrooms websites and blogs unscrupulous companies that promise the moon if you decide to create your personal brand. quackery.

Personal brand, let's be clear, It is an investment medium term. And that everyone interprets it in their own way. My good friend and client Juan Torres Tomas He has needed gestation 9 months of your brand before seeing the first reward in the form of recruitment. And so I could tell from my other clients. None has “lined” the next week to create a profile on Linkedin, Twitter, a blog or whatever.

Behind the personal brand is a strategic process, with a partial deadlines and goals. And it's not about creating profiles on social networks. Every mark requires POSITIONING, and that is very serious. All brand requires a objectives. The blog, twitter or else is just the tip of the iceberg of the personal brand. Any kid can create profiles on social networks. But creating a brand is very serious.

Ignore anyone who promises you quick income with personal branding. I will be selling smoke, just smoke.

Ladies, Sirs… the curriculum is dead (Or so it seems)

Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend PERSONAL BRANDING / 1er meeting personal brand management which it took place at the Intercontinental Hotel in Madrid.

Coordinated by Mónica Deza, It had excellent speakers: Andrés Pérez Ortega (Own brand), José Manuel Casado (married Consulting), Eduardo García Matilla (Multimedia Corporation), Pablo Melchor (Honest&Smart), Oscar Bilbao (Heirs of Rowan), Javier Curtichs (network), Lourdes Molinero (agathos) and Juan Ramón Plana (AEA).

Interventions that were I remain especially with the first "Personal Brand" by the great Andrés Pérez Ortega and the latest "You are a brand" Veteran Juan Ramón Plana. Perhaps because they were much to my- the most related with the concept of personal branding.

Andrew was critical of large organizations that share something: Many companies do not retain talent, you stop. In this sense, personal branding seems vetoed workers employed. Big mistake, a positive image of professional results in a positive image for a company or brand.

Andres stressed his knowledge formula, based relevance, trust and reputation. At the end, it is people that create brand. Andrés, although not very pro-twitter, It is one of the best bloggers in this country, and I heartily recommend a visit to "their domains ".

Juan Ramón Plana, Director General of the AEA (Spanish Association of Advertisers), put offline counterpart to the creation of brands personales giving excellent examples of people he has crossed his life and that have left an indelible mark (personal branding).

With respect to the title of the post, and non-alarmist, there was much talk of the need "skipping selection processes”. Perhaps it is exaggerated, but the fact is it worth having established a career before coming to a selection process. Frankly, a CV written with fear and a half-hour interview are of little use when analyzing qualitative profiles. Perhaps the curriculum is not dead yet, but it is in the ICU. LinkedIn is the new professional standard of the people, and it will not take long to bury the paper (in the background, It would be more sustainable, ¿no?).

If any of you need more information about the meeting, I'm at your service.
