Authentic Self - embrace personal branding

As we rapidly approach 2024, a significant shift is happening in the world of branding and marketing. Amidst the overwhelming information about AI tools and their increasing role in business decisions, one thing remains crystal clear: authenticity is the key to standing out from the crowd.

The Rise of Authenticity

Authenticity isn't elusive. It's not just a trend or a buzzword that’s here today and gone tomorrow. On the contrary, it’s quickly becoming the backbone of successful branding and marketing strategies. More than ever before, consumers are craving genuine connections with the brands they support and follow.

The shift towards authenticity is palpable across all industries. Businesses are now understanding the importance of showcasing their true selves, their values, their beliefs, and the real people behind the brand.

This transparency helps them connect on a deeper level with their audience, build trust, and foster long-term relationships.

The Authenticity Shift supports movement to personal branding.

Real People, Real Impact

In the ever-evolving landscape of marketing, the term "influencer" has had its reign. But as we step into 2024, we're seeing a new breed of influencers rise - those who are unapologetically themselves. These video influencers are not hiding behind a carefully crafted persona. Instead, they’re sharing their authentic selves with their audience, warts and all.

And guess what? They're getting more views, more engagement, and more loyalty from their followers.

Why? Because authenticity resonates with people. It humanizes the brand and makes it relatable. It fosters a sense of community and belonging.

For instance, consider popular YouTubers like Emma Chamberlain and Casey Neistat. They’ve amassed millions of followers by being open, honest, and real. It’s their authenticity that sets them apart and attracts viewers.

Insider Info: Emma started her vlog back in 2016 and still in 2023 she has amassed 54 million new views (in 2023) and 100k new subscribers (in 2023) and she only added 3 (yes three!) new videos in the whole year! She has a total of only 290 videos, 12 Million subscribers and over 1,623,256,703 (yes that's BILLION) views!

Insider Info: Casey started his vlog back in 2010 (ahead of the curve) and still in 2023 he has amassed nearly 71 million views (in 2023) and 100k new subscribers (in 2023) and he only added 20 new videos in the whole year!

Definition of Authentic Self:

An individual's true, genuine, and unique personality that is not dictated by societal norms or expectations. It is the raw essence of a person, free from pretense or artificiality. It's who you really are ... you shouldn't have to 'try' to be you, or 'try' to be like someone else. The purest authentic self meaning is simply being you, unapologetically you.

Make 2024 Your Year of Authenticity

As we move into 2024, it's time to embrace your authentic truth. It's time to strip away the facade and show your audience who you truly are.

So, how can you do this? By building a strong personal brand that reflects your true self and self acceptance. Your personal brand is more than just a professional persona. It's a reflection of who you are as a person, your values, your beliefs, and your passions.

Sounds easy right? "Just be you" ... but it's not. Building your personal brand, your authentic personal (or business) brand, will take some coaching. It's like anything else, we're too close to ourselves to see our own brilliance.

Building an authentic personal brand is not a one-time event. It's a journey. But don't worry, the AMBSDR community is strong, and we'll will be there along for the ride with you. Coach Chris, will be there to guide us every step of the way.
