Earning industry recognition and growing your brand’s profile will ensure that business keeps coming through the door. It’s important to have a clear vision and understand your personal brand before you get started on marketing your business. Implementing one or more of the tips below will help with your overall business plan.

1. PR

Hiring a PR can boost your brand’s profile in the media. If you can’t afford a PR look at the different ways you can align yourself and pitch yourself to different medias and associated brands.


Have a marketing strategy in place. There are plenty of options to download on the internet if you are not familiar with writing one yourself. Doing something as easy as a regular EDM to clients will help keep you in the forefront of their mind. Putting a strategy together will ensure you are sending out relevant emails to your clients and not overwhelming them. Every successful brand does a form of marketing. What does your website look like? Do you update it regularly? Get a clear strategy in place and it will work and not be overwhelming.


A social media strategy needs to represent your brand in the best possible way across the various social media platforms and talk to the different mediums in a way that’s most powerful. This is a great way to promote your brand without spending a fortune. Using an online platform to plan your social media for a week will ensure that you’re reaching your target audience.  


Industry awards on a business or a creative level are a fantastic way to gain recognition for your craft. Owning the title of an award and/or being a finalist is a great feather in your cap. Boosting your profile and adding an amazing credential to your name will get you noticed by industry peers and clients. Be smart and leverage the PR of your brand with the win or nomination by piggybacking on the PR that is already being done for you
