MONETISING YOUR BRAND IMAGE

Brands aren’t built by businesses in order to create something that looks ‘pretty’. Businesses invest in brand building to grow their corporate value. Individuals do similar to grow and monetise their personal value. They all want to know the straightest path to accelerate their brand “asset” and add value to it.

However, businesses and individuals can often move too quickly in the wrong direction. Specifically, we see this in the web space. Imagine if Facebook had focused on an advertising revenue model soon after its creation instead of focusing on growing its database to 1.5 billion plus of monthly users ? It wouldn’t have the multi-billion dollar valuation it has today.

It’s similar for individuals – they also need a clear plan before they start their journey

At Image Group International , we help you find a balance. How do you accelerate and monetise your personal or corporate brand image without rushing through the process and thereby under leveraging it?

The survey by the Australian Institute of Management VT and Image Group International found that 38 percent of Australian business people rated their personal brand as average or worse than average. Just five percent of survey participants said their personal brand was excellent.

According to the survey, the skills that build an individual’s personal brand are:

 Negotiation skills
 Presentation
 Self Leadership
 Dress & Grooming
 Networking
Creative thinking & problem solving
Assertiveness techniques
Time Management
 Leadership Development
General Communication
Business etiquette
Sales and customer service
93% of those surveyed said personal branding skills were necessary to be an effective manager. Further, 90% of participants said improving their personal branding skills would be important for their career advancement.

Of the 1,023 business people involved in the ‘Personal Branding’ survey, those most likely to have a negative view about their personal brand were aspiring managers or team members. Fifty eight percent of this group of survey participants described their personal brand as average or below average.

CEOs did not fare well in the survey findings. Almost one third (32%) of survey participants rated their CEO’s personal branding skills as average or worse than average.

Team members or aspiring managers were the ones most likely to be critical of their CEO with 38 percent of them labelling their boss’ personal branding skills as average or below.

The CEO of Image Group International, Jon Michail said:

“Organisations frequently trumpet that employees are their greatest asset. But the truth is some bosses don’t invest enough in their people to make that boast a reality. How can you have a vibrant workplace culture and be a ‘can do’ organisation when more than one third of your managers and more than half of your team members say their personal brand is average or below?”
