    Thanks, Jawad! Very clear and actionable advice. I’m posting this to a Google Plus group I manage. My writer friends can’t hear your #1 enough! A professional blog is not a confessional journal. It’s a place to get valuable feedback from your audience who wants to buy your work. Also as I’m in Jon Morrow’s Guest Blogging Apprenticeship Program, your #2 more than hits home. Hope to see more of you around the web. Thanks, Jeff, for giving Jawad a platform for these great ideas.

      Thanks a lot Lori!

      Good to know you’re learning from Jon. He’s certainly one of the top guys when it comes to guest blogging.

    Love this article Jeff, it’s actionable & straight to the point. The only thing I’d like to add is treat yourself as a brand.

    I know that seems obvious especially from this article’s title however most professionals don’t realize that they are brands & this leads them to ignore and not value their personal brands.

    Once articulate and carefully curated, your brand will propel your career.

    Great post, Jawad! Yes, #1 is so important, I find a lot of marketing “consultants” use direct mail and/or cold calling to sell online services. Just makes no sense to me. I have had success with cold emailing in the past, but might use some of your tips. Again, 5 great tips that are very actionable to implement.

      No matter what type of marketing and business development strategy you adopt, but you first need to have a solid blog to build your brand.

      Thanks

    This is a great strategy and one that I used to go from day job I hated to be fully supported by my writing, speaking and coaching. I think they key is figuring out your target audience, most people think they know but aren’t specific enough.

      Thanks Kimanzi – Focus is the key!

    No matter what ventures or directions any professional may pursue, having a strong personal brand seems to be the #1, single most important thing.

      Thanks for your comment Sophie. Yes, building a strong personal brand is vital and doing it online provides powerful leverage!

        Adding on to our points about the importance of a strong online brand is the importance of confirming a strong online persona with a strong character in person.
