What does personal branding mean? Personally, I would say "blogging" is one of the greatest to reach out people, brands and more opportunities to come because "blogging is branding" We show who we are.
But first of all, you gotta have passion in what you work for, as well as "yourself" Personal branding is not about how famous you are, it's all about what people think of you and your own name. for example, if I mention "Red Bull' you guys might think about x-treme sports sponsor, or energy drink for such activities. It's the same theory to apply for yourself.
I have been collaborating with brands including UK based designers or Asian teams, and still feel grateful about the opportunities I have received. Likewise, this is the second outfit I styled with the skirt sent from Taberou Clothing, high-street based brand from London. Some might think that it'snot necessary to collaborate with the brands, while some may say that working with the brands are a "must'' *If you just blog as a hobby or for fun, then working with the brands is not important. However, if you blog as a career or think about growing your passion, then collaboration with brands is something you should consider. Or else why are you blogging for?
However, don't take it for granted when collaborating with brands nor let them use you for nothing. Don't get too excited about every email you receive because you have to "check&scan" first. Some can be trust, but some are scam. You don't have to accept every offer. "Choose the one that fits your style"
Let me tell you this, working is like mutual friends we have in Facebook; nurture the connection you get, when you can grow together with them. You work together, and you are exposed to media together "Increase visibility, boost up traffic to your website and reach more opportunities" In my case, it's not just about working, posting on social media, then split up since I always keep in touch with the brands. The social medias are already here, use it! Like me and Taberou Clothing, we usually say hi to each other, visit each other instagrams and so on because I really feel blessed for "what they see in me" I'm just a blogger who doesn't have 10k followers. But they still wanted to cooperate with me.
Because of personal branding I have. I have my signature high-street style to proof together with how consistency I keep track on. Trust me, don't wait for them to say hi to you, be the first who swim out to the sea and catch the fish. It shows your interest to the brands too. No matter "yes" or "no" At least you try :) I'm sure you guys are all amazing!
