Personal Branding Experts

A month ago Jacob Share wrote a blog post on the Personal Branding Blog titled “30 Personal Branding Experts on Twitter.”  I was curious to see who was listed, since I’ve kind of been in the personal branding space for a couple of years.  I was surprised to see a bunch of people I had never heard of, or people who don’t seem to write about personal branding at all.

In the comments of that post Walter Akana says:

“I think you have omitted people who have exceeded your criteria of 30 tweets on personal branding. So, I’m wondering how, specifically, did you do your research?”

I am on a Yahoo Group of people who have become certified as “Personal Branding Strategists” from Reach CC.  This Yahoo Group is one of my favorites… the people there are superb, and have some level training in personal branding.  I asked that Group who is on Twitter, and this is what I got… I would suggest the following people as experts in personal branding:

  1. Jason,

    Thanks for including me in a list with such stellar colleagues! I really appreciate it.

    And big congratulations on your new baby boy! How exciting.

    Happy 3rd Anniversary


  4. Here’s what I explained in the comments: “The list is made up of all the PBB (Personal Branding Blog) contributors plus Twitterers who claim to be PB experts & are also twittering about personal branding. There are many people who are PB experts yet **aren’t specifically twittering on topic (or only rarely)** and others who are but only joined Twitter recently (<30 updates) and so it’s too early to tell if they should be on the list.”

    I realize that I could have been clearer, so let me put it this way: there are many, many PB experts that are on Twitter (more than 30, that’s for sure). The purpose of my list was to point readers at twitterers who consistently twitter about personal branding. In other words, my list was for people who want to learn about personal branding.

    Regardless, the experts above are also worth following so thanks Jason!

  5. Hi Jason; This seemed like a good time to mention my new blog, where my first post was an article entitled ‘Career Branding’. Now that I got that going, I guess Twitter is next. Thanks for showing me what’s possible with blogging, I finally got it going! My biggest branding challenge: new technology! Congrats on the new baby, a successful blog and a strong brand! (And I hope your calves are better.) Cheers.

  6. I’d highly recommend checking out Charles Fellingham, who is the founder of the personal relevance, branding and marketing tool known as QAlias. I have worked with the Q internally and externally, and use this platform for myself and my clients. The guaranteed page one placement helps them to position as experts online – it is a truly effective weapon in the triangulation arsenal – as well as allowing them to say “want to know more – just Google Me!” To find Charles, you can (surprise, surprise) Google his name!

  7. I invite you to evaluate our True Path career branding tool. True Path provides a platform for clients to assess Qualities, Values, Typology and Success Stories – all resulting in a detailed branding report that can be printed for reference prior to an interview. Clients also construct a Key Word Palette for use in research and branding, and connect to a variety outside networking tools such as JibberJobber, LinkedIn, etc. As a sales and marketing professional working with over 500 career coaching clients, I emphasize the importance of branding for job seekers. A clearly defined, consistent career brand drives marketing and networking – and especially the crucial interview. Effectively communicate your qualifications and match your brand to the job requirements, and you’ve got a good shot at landing the position.
