Lifehacker: 9 Minutes a Day is the Magic Number for Better Personal Branding

9 Minutes a Day is the Magic Number for Better Personal Branding

“Personal branding expert William Arruda says all you need is nine minutes every day.”

“nine minutes per weekday translates into 45 minutes a week, or roughly one full work-week each year.”

“There are lots of things you can do for your personal brand in this time, Arruda says:

  1. Update your LinkedIn status, letting your contacts know what you are up to or what your opinion is on a timely topic.
  2. Reach out to a former colleague or manager to reinforce your connection.
  3. Discover your brand color. Then use it in your personal communications, your email signature and your online profiles.
  4. Ask for feedback, recommendations and endorsements from managers, clients and other colleagues.
  5. Research thought-leaders in your area of expertise on the web and choose one or two to follow.
  6. Join a LinkedIn group and comment on a LinkedIn group post.
  7. Recommend and congratulate others in their careers, and send thank-you notes (written or email) to team members, colleagues and others who have made a significant contribution.
  8. Record your “Wins” for the week. Tracking all your successes will also keep you prepared for your annual performance review. Here’s a worksheet you can use to capture your wins.
  9. Write your 3D Brand Bio. “
