    #1 Thank you, @Wayne Yoshida. I had started my article about an hour before our call. Then I was inspired to get my profile up on beBee and post an article. I thought the one I was working on would be a good "starting point." I wasn't quite sure, so thank you for your comment and making me feel better with my decision. I'm working on a few more articles, too.

    Amen! And thank the gods for someone, in this case, a top-flight writer saying it out loud. I am so tired of being told how the written word leaves out important cues as to what is actually being said. To my mind, when that happens, more often than not the writing is poor or the reading is below par. I did an experiment to confirm that theory a while ago, in my sojourn into doing Stand-up Comedy via the written word. Most readers responded, saying they could sense the cadence and inflection, and hear the delivery in their Mind's ear. Anyone interested can see for themselves:

    #30 Hi @Milos Djukic let me take it down a different direction. Andy Murray is a personal brand, Bill Murray is a personal brand, Jim Murray is a personal brand, but that does not mean that every Murray is a personal brand, there are a curry of Murrays who are simply vindaloo. As Jim says many people don't have the know-how or the ability to build a personal brand.

    So what I am saying is that there is a great difference between professional personal brand and mass personal branding. Now let's take the case of Matthew John Murray http://murderpedia.org/male.M/m/murray-matthew.htm I really don't care about his personal brand, Mass personal brand and warped psychology are awful bed partners, Lennon's killer shot him because he thought he would gain his "aura" by doing so. In the case of M.J. Murray, it was more simple, he was just batshit crazy.

    I will introduce John D. Murray. Now this guy should have a personal brand and the idea of mass personal branding is good for his business. This is because he is plastic surgeon. Cosmetic surgery is his life blood and the more image conscious people get the more they seek nip and tuck and lot of nip, nip, nip. As brands get diluted how do we sort out which curry of Murray is becoming what type of vindaloo?

    At the end of the day attention is reduced to the visual, where there was 32 seconds to decide the MPB of a person, the greater mass personal branding grows, the shorter the attention span - so soon it will be 8 seconds to decide, and who knows how quick snap judgements will be made. In other words mass personal branding is not MPH or Miles Per Hour, it is MPB Miles Per Bullshit. It is at this point people are not product, but I have no problem with professionals selling a great personal brand.

    Ok guys, One day I will read your' He said He said 'in voices I have for you guys in my head and post it online :-) You will probably fall over laughing, but I sure get a kick out of these very spirited discussions. Now let me say, after much thought IMHO - a personal brand is indeed different in how it is promoted from products or services. It cannot speak or distinguish itself, nor is it able to differentiate its purpose. That is done by marketers and product creators. The effectiveness of branding will be master through many types of personalities pitching and showcasing its 'form' to differentiate its purpose based on their views. Personal branding is as the person presents themselves. Even with coaching or a script, that personal brand is subjected to emotional triggers which are formed based on interaction, authenticity and trust. There are good brands and bad brands. Both products and people. Yes, as you observed if they are using a script they will at some point stray and then the image created changes. Reality bites.
    Thanks for the vote of confidence @Jim Murray and @Phil Friedman Excellent discussion , will probably have to come back.. It has me thinking... great stuff guys!

    Dear Wise Guys, Do not do video. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

    You're right, Jim. Writers write. Their thinking and rethinking, writing and rewriting is what makes their arguments compelling, convincing and, if God is good, concise.

    You could turn what you write into podcasts or video, working from the printed page or notes. That would satisfy those who learn better by hearing or by hearing and seeing. Yet audio and video should be used with a purpose. They should go beyond letting people hear a voice and its inflections or see a face and its expressions. Good writers can convey all that in print. And you and Phil do.

    It might be nice to listen to a podcast while driving or watch a video when you're trying to avoid being noticed on United flights. But both risk distraction and a loss of concentration. That's why writing that demands your attention and engages your senses (to hear the spoken nuance and to see the likely glance) still endures.

    Outstanding post, Jim, and Phil. I think of a personal brand as one's reputation or persona. It's ours to create, protect and maintain. I like your statement in the Postscript-"It needs to cared for and tweaked constantly, and the best way to deal with the responsibility of a personal brand is to accept that the management of it is not just a project but a part of your life and a professional."

    Thanks guys. Twice today I've used this word to respond to a post here on beBee: Authentic.
    In my view, whether it is a personal or product brand if it is not authentic it will not be trusted. I believe Brand is the outcome of trust. You will have a personal brand because of human nature and the way we tend to compartmentalize things. The box your brand winds up in comes down to the trust you engender.

I can walk through a room, pick the brains I want and noone would remeber me ten minutes or an hour later. I understand that my digital brand lasts about 6 seconds.....significantly less than Andrew the Nugg Guy. And there are many days it pisses me off.

    #3 I am also following you now Riccardo. There is a lot in personal branding that I am resistant. The article you picked highlights what someone with a good personal brand should avoid. Personal Branding is a reality for certain professionals and when it is done right, it is great.

    I am a great fan of great brands - for I don't care too much for the word personal if what exists behind the brand is not great a.k.a. in the case of personal branding, that there is actually a great person behind the product that they have become. In the case of a great brand now we are talking multi-million dollar brand agencies that have creative that support what should be a great company behind the great branding.

    One of the great political personal brand takedowns was Dan Quayle when he mentioned "Jack Kennedy"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWXRNySMW4s

    Lloyd Bentsen landed one of the great zingers on Dan Quayle's personal brand "Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy" and yet Dan Quayle went on to become the Vice-President of the United States. Time to roll the Dan Quayle end credits https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Im1Ct3lf00 Never mind Donald, when first there was Dan.

    The title of this buzz should be 7 Signs Your Personal Brand Needs Work BY Sujan Patel. In a time deficient world I would have assumed that this buzz was written by Riccardo. Sujan offers interesting pointers that those whose profession require this constant personal marketing update lifestyle. This also outlines the problem of assumption that comes with personal brand. That 53% of people make snap decisions is symptomatic of the behaviour with those who are afflicted with PBS (personal brand syndrome). What I would like to see in personal branding practices is VERY CLEAR attribution as to who actually designed the brand, who wrote the copy for it, and what percentage of that brand is actually the person who has launched their personal brand. There is today so much that we attribute to a personal brand that is window dressing and not the actual professional that the personal branding effort is selling

    I want my personal google to keep enriching my learning journey and I want to focus on my personal privacy to ensure I don't make google personal. That then becomes a personal dynamic rather than personal linearity. Technology as an extension of ourselves is the creation of the system owner, but technology as an extension of our insight and humanity, that is recognizing the current limitations of the system. The system continues to drive behaviors. Unfortunately.

    #39 @David B. Grinberg - keep up your good work and you'll appear at the top without the quotes! Getting to the top by just typing in your name as we know you is an important part of social branding, but it takes time.

    Just an FYI that to Google me correctly, one needs to use my full name in quotation marks, including my middle initial: "David B. Grinberg" -- that's because there are other people named "David Grinberg" out there who will also show up otherwise. That's why I use my middle initial to help me stand out from others with the same name. Others may want to do consider this as well.
    That's why blogs I wrote years ago still appear in a Google search of my complete name -- including blogs posts on multiple platforms from 2012 onward. And yes, beBee shows up prominently on the first page of my search. So think about using your middle initial if you have a common name, or even an uncommon one like me, and don't want people to confuse you with someone else of the same name.

    It would be better if the /#q= direct directly to the Google+ profile instead to the home page. Anyway is a good idea. Is time to take advantage of MS attempt to make LinkedIn better for the overall low bandwidth Indian Market and screwing their interface and adding half-backed features, instead of making a lite interface.

    Great post and resource @Netta Virtanen. As a member of the social media community, I must understand the culture and language in order to be seen and understood. One of the reasons I connect with beBee is because you and your team communicate in a "common" language how to do that. The whole topic of branding is key in that it is attached to our identity. So when one moves, virtually and in reality, whether it be residence, neighborhood, community or country, it shakes us up a bit by challenging that identity. You and your team on beBee give us a place in which you support and guide us to not only communicate who we are, but to stop and think about that "who"; personal and professional.

    Excellent article here. Thanks for sharing with us Netta Virtanen , as Javier 🐝 beBee underlines, personal branding is a key feature in someone success. You can take for example the Hiring process; Do you really think the interviewer didn't run a background check or as Juan Imaz mentionned in his superb post : Some is googling you...
    Personal brand is the recipe to impact people you meet and do not meet to get an opinion on you. Positive, Negative or mixed, at least some get an idea, an opinion in regards of who YOU are, Where YOU'VE BEEBN.
    PERSONAL BRAND is you lifetime opportunity to replicate the prisma of communication through the following human mindset phenomenon: It is called If This Happens Then Do That. ( That is the way human kind react ).
    If you feed your personal brand with insights, structures, affinity network, recommandations, expositions, accomplishments well publicly released and miscelaneous other actions...you have build your personal brand based on data in our #DigitalWorld.
    It is the only way that some business people can have an predictive opinion about yourself, if well managed , in a positive way. Don't you think if your brand is highly rated or impressive , it doesn't matter in the business decision making process ti grant you the Deal or the Job.
    If you do not think so, well...you will need a lot of luck..or cast some spells...LOL

    @Juan Imaz - excellent article on personal branding and the beBee affinity networking concept. I'd like to add how powerful one's brand can become if personal interests intersect with professional interests.

    For example, in my current job as technical writer for a natural gas fuel systems company, I am always working with "automotive technology" and "mechanics" which are also personal passions of mine.

    I am also very involved in electronics and radio (RF) technology and have enjoyed my career in those industries.

    And finally, I enjoy teaching and helping others, so I am involved with educational plus hobby activities such as Maker Faire. I am blessed with actually enjoying my work and loving my job.

This is pretty awful when you think about it, especially when you consider that is most of what hr does here on beBee. How the hell is that contributing to this site other than creating unnecessary friction? So you might say his personal brand is Phil Friedman assassin. Not something I would want to be. Not something anyone should be. It's just plain sad.

    Whoa! Okay ...and you can also kind of drive them away from where you don't want them to go (based on the likely characteristics of the "guy").
    I have to admit that this is an interesting effect...but it still "feels" like an effect; it's getting "smoother"...I'm guessing the most seamless deployments have, as a major variable, a pre-existing "guy authenticity"...the other thing, of course is that the world has to actually want the "guy"...because if not --the brand will default to "the guy nobody likes guy" --

    There is a lot to think about here --this a very powerful "thingie".

    Fantastic buzz dear Pablo! A great resource in itself in many ways.Building a personal brand or profile (as Rob-not-Bob puts it ;)...is for those who want to be noticed, acknowledged and contacted for what they bring to the table, in terms of their shared knowledge, responses and interactions, services on hire/offer, basis their capability and experience. This is a better way of connecting with relevance and becoming known to those who can relate. With those who matter (potential customers, employers, peers, partners, affiliates and so on). Both Individuals and firms/corporations can build their 'personal profile/ company brand' on a platform like beBee. I believe the word ''Personal'' denotes the individual self or the company identity/brand, respectively.

    #28 No apology necessary, Phil. I wouldn't have responded if it weren't for that fact that Robert Cormack thought the comment was directed at him.

    #21 my apologies, Paul.. As you well know, I try to make it a policy not reply or engage at all with the person involved. Unfortunately, I am human and occasionallly the constant personal attacks,, the purpose of which is transparent, get on my nerves. And although I should know better, I fall off the wagon and respond.

    My apologies, as well, to @Robert Cormack, for any confusion. I should not have assumed that the initial member reference included in my comment was sufficient to make it clear to which comment I was replying.. I will try as well not to make that mistake again. Cheers!

    Good read, Paul. I believe one must build their personal brand before someone else builds it for them. Whatever the popular term is for reputation, persona, etc., one must ensure it works in their best interest. I mean ass-plunker would not be in one's best interest as part of their personal brand, IMHO :)

    C'mon guys, play nice First off, @Robert Cormack, I don't think you were the "Robert" @Phil Friedman addressed. That would likely be @Robert Bacal

    Phil and Robert B. . . Much as I like you both, I would appreciate it if you guys would take your perpetual argument elsewhere. It's particularly ironic on a post about personal branding.

    Thank you for your cooperation

    This is really good, @Juan Imaz : it's visual, it's comprehensive but easy to understand. It works. Didn't you mean for CREATE to be No. 1? Maybe edit that to make it clear. As it reads now, it makes the beginning a little less organised.

    I have to say this is an excellent buzz. It is still about joining The Borg. The key is caveat emptor, it always has been, and always will be. If this is what the market says it wants then go with the flow, one can always pivot and catch up to where life is actually going later, even Bill Gates did that :-)

    i guess, personal contributions with rich values and pertinent appeals are most significant in an affinity based platform, where the platform will become a 'Brand' of distinction. so the potentialities and sincere endeavor with rich constituents are essentially to enrich a brand's value. there only lies the gravity of a person. apart from affinity and associating skill, a brand cannot be popular. so personal brand, i guess is relevant, moment the person is having the capacity to contribute or share his skill to usher majority, and thus the platform on which he or she is sharing makes the platform a unique 'brand'. however, lovely insight @Javier 🐝 beBee! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.
