Personal Branding Trends for 2013Personal Branding Trends for 2013 By William Arruda, Founder, Reach Personal Branding ! Each December, I predict what personal branding trends will be valuable to career-minded professionals in the coming year. In writing this article, I continue the series with much enthusiasm as there are many exciting changes afoot that will simplify building your brand in 2013. Youll see some common threads linking many of these trends, as well as interconnections among them. For example, LinkedIn features prominently in many of the entries because of the significant changes they have been making to their functionality. The importance using of multi-media, and using it well, is also a notable theme. As you review these brand-building opportunities, consider how you will incorporate them into your strategies for increasing your influence, achievement, and personal brand value! 1. Curation Since social media turned the internet on its ear, it seems that everyone on the planet has become their own media outlet, creating, posting and distributing original content. The resulting upload overload has left many looking for less-demanding alternatives. Career-minded professionals understand that personal branding does not require constant content creation, and that the new key to expressing your point of view is content curation. Potent curation tools like Tumbler and Pinterest, plus newbies that will pop up in 2013, provide the opportunity to express your brand with the help of the ideas, images and information from the vast library we know as the internet, with limited original writing required. Phew! 2. CustomizationIt used to be that if you wanted a truly customized brandidentity on the web you needed to build your own web site.That requirement is so last year. A host of services now allowyou to build and customize a profile that uniquely reflects yourbrand. Some social networking sites have always allowedlimited customization; YouTube for example, lets you pick the color palette for your channel, while other social networking sites provide a structured template for their members to create a personalized profile. More and more sites are making real customization a key feature of their offerings. Even LinkedIn, one of the most structured social media sites, now allows you to change the order of the content and to easily personalize your profile with videos, images, documents, and presentations. I predict they will eventually allow you to choose color and other design elements - making your LinkedIn profile a good substitute for having your own website.
