Viewing Yourself As A Brand

Viewing Yourself As A Brand | adoubledose.comWhen you think about bloggers and blogging, you probably don’t think of it as a brand specifically, or at least we didn’t. We wanted to talk today more about blogging, but specifically, viewing yourself as a brand. In case you missed our podcast recently, we shared some tips for starting a blog, and we also talked about branding, and how important that is. We had a few requests to go into more detail, so we are excited to chat more about it with you all! Before we get into that, we wanted to talk about this super easy and SOOO comfy outfit, perfect for transitioning into fall.
Viewing Yourself As A Brand | adoubledose.comThis v-neck sweater is incredibly soft and goes with everything! We always gravitate towards grey because it goes with blacks and browns and is just a flattering color on everyone. You all will seriously not want to take this one off! These jeans are a great dark color and they have just the amount of rips in them, without being too much.
Viewing Yourself As A Brand | adoubledose.comThese kicks are more for athleisure, and not working out, but that means they are acceptable to pair with jeans and a tee or sweater, without looking frumpy! They also look super cute with black leggings. Viewing Yourself As A Brand | adoubledose.comThis bag is a great everyday bag, and it actually holds a lot in it! We love that it has the round metal handles, but it also has a long strap so if you’re not feeling carrying the bag in your hands, you can throw it over your shoulder.Viewing Yourself As A Brand | adoubledose.comOkay, now for moving onto the main topic we talked about earlier! This really applies to any industry, whether you’re a blogger, you work for yourself, you work for a larger company, etc. Think about when you’re at an event, dinner with friends, meeting new people at a networking event, you will most likely be talking about your career at some point. It is so important (at least to us) to always be representing yourself and your personal brand in a professional and positive way. Viewing Yourself As A Brand | adoubledose.comOf course, there are times you are going to want to vent or blow off some steam from something that has happened or bothered you, but it is also important to remember that you will leave an impression, especially if they are people you haven’t met before, or don’t know that well. People will probably remember positive things, but they will most definitely remember negative things that you say or do.Viewing Yourself As A Brand | adoubledose.comYou never know who is around you, or who may know someone that is potentially connected to you, so it is always good to keep these things in mind! Viewing Yourself As A Brand | adoubledose.comYou all may notice that we also try and respond to you all on social media and emails. We are huge on interacting and engaging with you all. Without you all, we wouldn’t be able to do this for a living, and we would feel like we are talking to a computer or phone screen, haha. While it can be difficult and time-consuming to feel like we are always glued to our phones, it is really a priority for us to answer you all at the end of the day. It is always so amazing to us that some of y’all don’t expect us to answer you because of course we would! We are not saying we are anyone special or famous, by any means, but responding and stuff like that is part of your representation as a personal brand, and also how you respond.
