These associations should be unique (exclusivity),
strong (awareness, trust) and positive (desirability)
Economics of attention. Price value, not cost
Experience goods... reputation. Peters' classic
Fast Company: The Brand Called You (Tom Peters)
Everyone has a chance to stand out. Really? Ok. What is that my product or service
does that makes it different? What have you done lately to make yourself
standout? What would your colleagues say is your clearest strength? Your most
noteworthy personal trait? Forget your job title. Ask yourself: What do I do that
adds distinctive value? What do I do that I am most proud of? What have I
accomplished that I can unabashedly brag about? What do I want to be famous
for? Imagine yourself a brand manager at P&G: When you look at your brand's
assets, what can you add to boost your felt presence? Would you be better off with
a simple line extension? Or would you be better off with a whole new product line?
Is it time to move overseas—tackling something new and completely different?
Start by writing your own mission statement. What turns you on? Learning
something new? What's your personal definition of success? Money? Power? Fame?
A career is a portfolio of projects. What's your pitch?
Ok, but no need to make it public, only for direction
1. Reliability, deliver professional work. + Visibility
2. Be remarkable, not likeable (What was your name?)
3. My unique skill set—market it to the right customer
4. Co-branding, power is perception. You belong there
5. Track record: Writing, teaching, public speaking, etc.
6. Big-fish-little-pond. Experimentation, trial-and-error
7. Audience-tailored message. All details matter
8. Design. Good packaging sells much, much more
9. Unconditional love, dogs as the ultimate salesmen
1. Execution w/o strategic thinking / career connection
2. Focus too much on presentation, not content. Work!
3. Overpromote. Millennials, it's not always about you
4. Networking events. It won't happen there
5. 3-page resume, listing hobbies. Hey, you are only 21
6. Do I need a resume-website? (No) But what if... (No)
7. Excessive blogging. It's ok to delete ¾ of the post
8. Non-corporate business card. Instead: @Twitter
9. Digital footprint—little upside, unlimited downside
Non-traditional advice: 0 promotion until reaching 35
Do great work, make friends, ask feedback, start again
Yet you have contracted 30 hours here. ROI guaranteed
The basics: Do you know how to write a formal email?
(Theory / Reading discussion) (Mock interview, etc.)
