Business & Consulting
Julie Broad is the creator of HaveMoreInfluence.com which helps solopreneurs have more influence and impact with their personal brand. As part of that, she's created Stick Horse Publishing to publish her books under. This is a book for entrepreneurs, subject matter experts and sales professionals about branding. It's all about how your image will do the selling for you - if you create the right one. Generally the person reading this book is going to be between 30 - 55, with some post secondary education, a family and a lot going on in their day to day life. This book cover has to get their attention and build trust - quickly. My audience ranges from people in the real estate industry to consultants to business coaches that want to attract clients. They all want to be the recognized name in their industry. Many will be making a change from an existing career to something new. The words that these people will associate with the author and the brand she has are: Genuine, Hard Working, Trustworthy, Classy, Kind, and Expert.

You may have already branded yourself to cause those four desired outcomes but perhaps one or two didn't quite work out. Most people think that branding is about cool logos, gorgeous websites and social media popularity. The understandable confusion causes potential successes to fail. So, what does work to brand you? In The New Brand You, you’ll learn what is critical in reinventing your personal brand, and why you may never have to tweet, pin or post to become the name that people recognize, trust, buy and remain loyal to. Julie Broad, MBA, best selling author, and award winning entrepreneur, takes you inside your own mind to show you: · The single most important thing you must focus on to build your personal brand is to know that your brand is really about the feelings, thoughts and experiences of your customers and clients FIRST. · Online, you are who Google says you are. Now, what are you going to do about it?! · Your brand is only in part about a "message" to your customer. It's easy to go stray here. – Now you can avoid the most common communication mistakes that dilute your message, meaning and value to your customers. It’s often necessary to recreate who you are and what you do multiple times. The Brand New Brand You is your guidebook to reinvention.
