#31: Brittany Krystle: Ask Me Anything About Personal Branding Online
Release Date: 05/30/2018
After 30 straight weeks of interviews, I thought it was about time to do a solo episode! This episode is dedicated to the topic that I’ve built my business on: personal branding online. I asked my audience on LinkedIn & Instagram to “Ask Me Anything” about personal branding and they delivered with some great questions.
If you’d like your questions answered on a future episode, the next round will be sourced from my email list & from iTunes reviews. If you haven’t already, head to brittanykrystle.com to sign up for my email list OR you can leave me a review on iTunes and include your question.
I tried to choose questions that had a lot of overlap to other questions that were submitted.
Topics covered include:
- My personal branding ethos
- Personal brand vs. Business brand or both?
- How to grow a personal brand around a podcast
- Instagram growth tips
- Which platform if I could only choose one
- Approaching multiple pillars in your messaging
- Why I love podcasting (& more!)
*Please excuse the two portions where the audio sounds a little funky.
*FREEBIE: For those who don’t know, I’ve been hot on building brand on LinkedIn for pretty much every industry. If you haven’t been on LinkedIn in a while or if you just haven’t updated your profile, I created a free checklist to make sure you’re up to date and answering the right questions with your LinkedIn bio.
