If either one of these questions resonate with you this article is for you. Learn what it takes to build a distinctive brand that makes you irreplaceable and attract your ideal clients.
Yes, I will agree competition is greater than ever for entrepreneurs. But here’s a fact for you to remember: you are equipped with everything that you need to be successful. You are needed today more than ever to provide your services and products to your target audience.
Now, what does it take for you to build a distinctive brand making you irreplaceable?
1. Uniqueness….,..You have something to offer that only you can provide. Yes, your competitors provide a similar service but what makes you unique? To determine what makes you unique discover your purpose – your story, your being. I feel with all my heart and soul that you were created for a specific purpose that only you can fulfill. Being able to know your purpose allows you to separate yourself from the pack. You will become aware of why you think the way that you do, discover your gifts, talents and strengths. Simply knowing your purpose will add the layer of distinction to your brand and messaging. You will become relatable to your target audience and attract more clients.
2. Differentiate your style and services from everyone else. Identify what makes you different and resonate with your target audience. Are you perceived as an authority or specialist in your niche? If you aren’t take time to develop you and your business based on what and how you perform differently from others. Here’s an example, I know someone who takes her clients on a safari to experience the unknown. The outcome is to build confidence within her clients to believe and possess the can do spirit. For myself, my clients complete online assessments that allow them to see themselves clearly and understand why they think and perform the way that they do. We spend weeks reviewing the completed assessments before diving into their consulting sessions. Having clarity is essential for differentiating yourself from others.
3. Authenticity…..There is no one on the planet like you. Can’t anyone replace you; you are one of a kind. Therefore, allow the original to be presented to the world. Learning to accept the real you sometimes can become challenging. With the world of the internet there’s so much information available. You may feel that you need to imitate someone else to be distinct, memorable and standout. Wrong! Being yourself is the answer to building a distinctive brand making you irreplaceable.
The holiday season is upon us and the perfect time for you to standout in your niche. Identify what can you offer this holiday season that is unique, different and authentic to your brand. Remember, you are one of a kind, a masterpiece, there is no one with your fingerprints.
