THIS SOLO EPISODE DIGS DEEPER INTO THE HOT TOPIC OF -- "Should you focus on building your personal brand, or business brand?" It follows on from the previous episode (#221) in which brand strategist, Sam Osborn, content coach, Brendan Keogh, and I discussed this topic, albeit in quite broad terms. However, I felt there was unfinished business. I subsequently blogged about the topic and had conversations with people on LinkedIn and Twitter. I put my thinking cap on. I went for long walks to gain additional clarity around the subject. Here I was: I'd been neck-deep in the PR and marketing arena for many years now; I'd advised countless individuals – entrepreneurs, professional experts and thought leaders – on both their personal and business brands, But I felt I hadn't sufficiently come to any real concrete conclusions to this common issue. It had always been, in my instance anyway, a case by case proposition, depending on who I was talking to at the time, and what their particular circumstances were. Until now. I decided the best way to help people better understand this branding conundrum and thus have greater clarity as to which strategy would work best for them - 'personal brand vs business brand' - was to provide real-life examples of people who had already gone a fair way down the path, and then unpack their respective situation. Which is what I have done in this episode. I hope you get value from it! REPUTATION REVOLUTION is brought to you by Credible Authority Academy.
G'day folks, my name is Trevor, and welcome to Season 6 of the Reputation Revolution show. In this episode we tackle the much-debated topic - Business brand vs personal brand: Which one should you focus on? It's a question I get asked a lot, and one to which there is no definitive answer, as a number of variables will often come into play. But ... it's definitely worth digging into if you're in business, because as we know: when it comes to all things PR, marketing and communications (including content and social media) - clarity is king! To help me tackle the 'business brand vs personal brand' debate, I've co-opted two experienced pros to provide their ideas, insights and opinions on the topic. They are: SAM OSBORN - a leading brand strategist who helps businesses drive stronger revenue, branded communication and customer loveBRENDAN KEOGH - a marketer and coach who helps thought leaders clarify their message and create cut-through content that gets results Sam, Brendan and I provide our respective takes on the 'business brand vs personal brand' theme. Along the way, we also discuss: the concept of branding, and the critical role it playsthe importance of values, personality and consistency in building trustexamples of personal brands who have also built significantly-sized businessesThe role reputation plays in personal brandingLeaders of practice areas within a larger firm: how should they approach personal branding?Brand architecture, and when to build a 'house of brands' If you're building a business enterprise around your personal brand but are wondering whether or not you need to put a bit of effort into marketing an associated business entity, then have a listen to this episode for further insights and ideas on the topic. *** REPUTATION REVOLUTION: Brought to you by the Credible Authority Academy ***

All this and more!
FROM THE VAULT: Previously published as episode 177 - 'Creating authentic video content in professional services | CASE STUDY - Pat Mannix, Paris Financial' __________________________ In this encore episode of the podcast, we chat with Pat Mannix, a partner in the Melbourne-based accounting firm, Paris Financial. Pat is known as the Small Business Tax Champion. He uses video to share ideas, insights and value with his target audience, the small business community. Pat's videos demystify legislation, unpack complex issues around all things tax, and provide savvy business tips and advice. Plus he doesn't mind delivering the occasional rant against multinational companies that don't pay their fair share of tax! But most importantly, Pat's content is the real deal. Yes, it's valuable content for the intended audience - small business owners - but it's how he presents it that really resonates. With Pat, what you see is what you get - he's a funny guy, and his personality really shines through in his videos. This is very welcome, given a lot of the subject matter is on the dry side! In this this interview, Pat breaks down how he produces his videos, including the production schedule he adheres to and the technology used. He explains the need to inject personality on-camera and why the key to content success is consistency. Pat also discusses how creating content has given him (and his firm) visibility within small business circles, and how this has led to new business opportunities. Pat has done some 150 videos now, so he's got it down to a fine art. But nothing would have happened had he not turned on the camera and had a go! If you've been 'umming and aahing' as to whether you should be creating content but are starting to maybe over-think things to the point where nothing is getting done, you'll be inspired by this chat with Pat Mannix.

After we listen to John's story, John and host Trevor Young shift gears and discuss LinkedIn tips and strategies} John's the real deal. He's a genuine, humble guy. He's not flashy, but he's credible. This makes him the antithesis of many of the self-proclaimed 'thought leaders' we see out there on the web who are good at scoring airtime, but scratch beneath the surface and there's not a lot there. In this wide-ranging chat with Trevor Young, John discusses: why he chose to build his personal brand in the first placehis book Content DNA, and why he wrote itthe concept of creating personal brand building blocks, and how they helped him establish a unique tone of voicethe importance of showing up and relentlessly delivering value time and time againmaking public promises and staying true to themthe 90/10 rule - spending 90% of time on a primary social channel, and 10% on a second one.

And eventually you will become known. But you've got to stick at it for long enough for it to happen."  CONNECT WITH JOHN: LinkedInTwitterWebsiteYouTube

It's a great (quick) way to see what you missed (if you did indeed miss some shows), and a reminder of some of the great conversations we had on the podcast. Keep an ear out for season 6, coming your way soon!
We talk often about content on this show. Indeed, in pretty much every episode, content is mentioned somewhere, and rightly so, because it's such a critical part of building a thought leader brand today. And 'content repurposing' also often gets regularly mentioned in dispatches, because it too plays a key role in personal branding. But we haven't dedicated an entire episode to content repurposing ... until now! In this episode, Trevor Young and expert guest, Sally A. Curtis, go deep into all things content repurposing, covering: What it isWhy it is so importantHow to do it strategically But it's not just a theoretical session! Trevor and Sally provide heaps of practical examples of what content repurposing looks like, when done well. Sally is a content repurposing specialist who works with speakers, authors, thought leaders, coaches, consultants and entrepreneurs. She also hosts the Success Secrets Exposed podcast and video show Sally talks about her content repurposing framework ("amplification, transformation, and productisation"), plus we hear about her method for dissecting her clients' content to identify nuggets of gold - inspiring quotes, bite-sized rants and teachable moments. Visibility & revenue Content repurposing can help entrepreneurs, professional experts and thought leaders to not only raise their visibility ("strategic omnipresence" as Trevor calls it), but also generate additional revenue. Sally reveals how she and her clients are creating additional sales by turning their old content into training programs and information products. QUOTABLE QUOTE: "Let's educate your audience. Let's inspire your audience. Let's inform the audience, let's help them make sense of their world," says Sally. CONNECT WITH SALLY: WebsiteLinkedInTwitter
In this week's episode of Reputation Revolution, we zero in on the 'mindset' part of personal branding. The topic is a bit different from what we usually cover on the podcast, but it's critically important for entrepreneurs and thought leaders who are keen to fast-track their public profile and professional reputation. If we can't get our mindset right and get on top of roadblocks and issues caused by self-sabotage - i.e. imposter syndrome etc - we can never effectively put ourselves out there online and build a personal brand that is truly representative of our professional selves. How can we create powerful, thought-provoking content if we're constantly second-guessing ourselves? How can we provide useful tips and ideas on social media if we don't deem ourselves worth enough to do so? To unpack all of this is The Happiness Hunter, Fiona Redding, a mindset coach and motivational speaker who helps female founders upgrade their vision, mindset and wellbeing to create a purposeful, profitable life and business. Specifically, Fiona outlines the five ways we self-sabotage, and explains how we can fix it.

The past two episodes of the podcast have looked at earned media, with emphasis on generating editorial exposure in mainstream media and trade press. 👇 { EP 211- How to build a national media profile as the go-to expert in your space: Case study with Jake Moore; EP 212 - How owned media can lead to editorial exposure > Content Marketing for PR audiobook chapter } In this episode, we stay with the earned media theme, but go deeper into the process of how to deal with journalists and producers in order to generate editorial exposure for our brand. Of course, what we're wanting to achieve through the media is to increase our reach, grow our influence and continue to strengthen our professional bona fides. Today's guest is Chenoa Parr, a seasoned PR and media relations specialist from Liverpool. Chenoa and host Trevor Young (aka 'The PR Warrior') dissect what it takes to grow a media profile. They cover a variety of topics and key points, including: The importance of having your story and message clear in your mind before you start approaching the mediaBeing able to articulate what it is you do and stand for (as well as what your key areas of expertise are) - do you have a particular philosophy or viewpoint around key trends/topics/issues in your industry?The power of strong story hooks and angles for the media - how to do this strategically, on an ongoing basis, in order to get maximum results for your efforts?What makes a good story hook? What are the types of stories that journalists and broadcast producers are looking for?Tier 1 media vs tier 2 media - plus the opportunities around guest blogging and guesting on other people's podcasts.Journalists are all over Twitter - if you’re serious about media relations, you need to be on the platform.How can you help journalists? Share their content on social media, build relationships with them before pitching your story idea.Opportunities in radio for leaders and experts with a good story to tell and expertise to share.The danger of being too focused on yourself, your business and products - look outwards: why it's important to develop a story hook or ange that connects with a wider topic, issue or trend.Become a student of the media - do your homework before pitching! Several big lessons spring from this discussion: (a) while a PR professional can be a terrific asset in helping you build your media profile, you can still play the media game effectively without one, and (b) media exposure can do wonders for your profile - Chenoa tells the story of the UK yoga instructor whose Facebook Live videos caught the attention of BBC London, which then ran story on her; down the track, a celebrity found the instructor via the story on Google. Terrific yarn! Chenoa also reiterates during the interview: It's important, when pitching the media, to know about wider societal and business trends and issues generally, as well as those pertaining to your industry - this is critical if you want to be topical with your pitches, she says.

What does it take to generate 400 items of media exposure in the space of two years? Well, that’s what Jake Moore has been able to do across 2020 and 2021. And not just any media coverage: we’re talking tier 1 editorial exposure. That is, coverage in the top media outlets such as BBC Radio, ITV News, CNBC, Sky News, Forbes, The Times, The Daily Mail, The Independent, Wired, Forbes and Al Jazeera. And that’s just a small portion of what he’s been able to achieve! Jake is a cybersecurity specialist with ESET, a global software company that provides security solutions to businesses and consumers in more than 200 countries and territories. In the space of a few short years, he’s stamped himself as a genuine go-to resource for all things cyber-security in the UK. While earned media takes in speaking gigs at conferences and guest blogging and people saying nice things about you on social media - the guts of earned media is about getting mentioned in mainstream and trade press, and broadcast media. This is what’s going to boost not only your reach of your personal (and business) brand, but also your credibility and perceived authority in the marketplace (there’s a reason why we see so many “As seen in …” media logos featured on the homepages of personal brand websites). But what’s involved in actually doing this? What’s required of the expert to make this happen: not once or twice, but over and over again on a consistent basis? In this episode, Jake walks us through his media journey, covering topics such as: The role relationships play when dealing with the media (hence, in the PR world this practice is called ‘media relations’)The role Twitter plays in real-time connection with journalistsJake’s daily practice of ensuring he’s prepared with story angles and ideasThe importance of timeliness in responding to media callsOutbound pitching of story ideas versus managing inbound media requestsHow to prepare for a media interview, including on-air Zoom callsBalancing personal brand vs employer brand when talking with the mediaThe role ESET UK’s PR agency plays in generating media coverageBlogging, and the power of creating headlines that hook readers (and the media)Do you need a personal brand website if you're working for a company?How YouTube helped prepare Jake for TV interviews with major media outlets While ESET UK’s PR agency plays a crucial role in helping Jake generate exposure in the media, the key message here is preparation: doing what’s required to build relationships with journalists, editors and radio/TV producers. Jake’s tips and lessons are relevant, even if you’re just starting out on your media relations journey, with no outside help.

The Creator Economy is a big deal. It’s big – HUUUGE! – and it’s getting bigger. What’s the relevance to thought leaders and professional experts? Simple. It’s where all the content ‘heat’ is at the moment. According to Mark Stenberg from Medialyte: "The creator economy consists of individuals with unique skill sets using platforms to monetize their craft.” Bona fide content creators (or ‘content entrepreneurs’, as Joe Pulizzi likes to call them) are busy building their media channel, growing an engaged audience (and considerable influence), and then creating products and services to serve that audience. Many thought leaders and personal brand enterprises, however, tend to already have their business model in train. They are creating content and building an audience often as a way to attract people to their ideas and to build subject matter authority. The ultimate goal, of course, is to build profile and reputation that in turn helps generate more leads and sales for their business, or whatever 'commercial' outcome they seek. In this solo episode, Trevor Young aka the PR Warrior, dissects the Creator Economy and explains why it's important for thought leaders to get a handle on where things are headed in this space. Trevor's advice? Don’t follow your competitors (and end up looking like them). Instead, check out - and seek inspiration from - the new wave of independent content creators who are making a big splash globally in their respective niches. They’re at the cutting edge of what’s happening currently in the world of content marketing and social media, he says.

Today's episode is all about video, and how non-digital natives can get the most out of the medium using nothing more than a smartphone. Our expert guest Julian Mather has an incredibly varied background, having gone from being trained to shoot people with a rifle (army sniper) to shooting people with a camera. Along the way, he became a Director of Photography at ABC-TV, as well as a professional magician, a period during which he established a successful Youtube channel generating 30 million video views and 140,000+ subscribers. Today, Julian helps busy 40-60yr olds build trust and authority using smartphone video. Julian's goal is to change how people think and feel about video, and he does it with unique content, storytelling, humour, practical tips ... and a bit of magic! Julian encourages people to shrug off their insecurities when it comes to being in front of the camera. He says: "Anybody can learn this. So if you're out there listening to this and thinking, I just have so much trouble (doing video) ... I'm worried I'll forget what to say, I'm worried about what people will think of me. I've spent my whole career building a level of status, I don't want to be on video and make mistakes and have that go on the record and damage me: you're thinking in a 20th century mindset." Julian and host Trevor Young discuss a range of video-related topics, including: The power of authenticity ("You can't be a little bit authentic," says Julian. "You're either authentic or you're not authentic.") The smartphone advantage ("If you can make {a video} and get that to market faster than your competitors, you have a smartphone advantage.")The perfection myth ("We think if we get on {camera} and we mess something up ... we don't want to do it because we think, oh, we'll mess up and people will talk about us. And the honest truth is - and you have to accept this - if you think that, you're conceited. I was conceited for those early years because I stopped myself getting on {camera} and just being authentic and being willing to make mistakes, because I thought people were going to talk about me.") New rules, new tools ("... you need a new set of rules and you need a new set of tools, and within those new set of tools, I advocate using smartphones.") Julian also discusses cheap but effective ways to improve lighting and audio quality. CONNECT WITH JULIAN WebsiteTwitterLinkedInYouTube
This episode's guest is Ian Whitworth, a reformed branding and advertising creative director turned entrepreneur and co-founder of Scene Change, a national corporate AV company that once used a toothless gypsy lady to help set its strategy! Ian studied as a vet, got expelled, and became a corporate AV technician. He claims he has been "exposed to radioactive megadoses of corporate motivator shtick", before realising they’re generally 99% showbiz and 1% business experience. More importantly, for the purposes of today’s episode – Ian is a blogger and published author, with a new book out now via Penguin Random House: UNDISRUPTABLE: Timeless Business Truths for Thriving in a World of Non-Stop Change. (High profile Australian entrepreneur Zoë Foster Blake described UNDISRUPTABLE as "witty, clever and extremely relevant in these godforsaken Zoom times.") In this wide-ranging chat with host Trevor Young, Ian touches on: How he snagged a book deal with a major publisherThe importance of telling real-life storiesThe power of blogging (and the role it played in landing him a book deal)The use of humour in storytellingFinding and honing your public voiceWriting is thinking - it's valuable to clarify what you stand for and what you do. Ian also discusses developing a point of view and why it's sometimes good to have a "straw man enemy" to go up against. In Ian's case, he preaches doing the opposite to what an MBA-trained consultant would tell you to do (the original title of Ian's book was 'Kill All MBAs!'). Connect with Ian: TwitterBlog
In this first interview of Season 5 of the podcast, Mark Masters - the founder of You Are The Media (online learning community) and We Are The Media (marketing consultancy) - joins Trevor Young to discuss all things content, community and being in it for the long haul. Mark is a repeat guest - this is his third appearance on the show - providing Trevor with the opportunity to walk Mark through the progress he's made (and the lessons he's learned) over eight years of You Are The Media (YATM). YATM essentially kicked off when Mark started producing his weekly newsletter, which he continues to publish to this day. The newsletter paved the way for a book called Content Revolution, which built Mark's credibility not only in his home town in Dorset on the southern coast of England, but also internationally (leading to speaking gigs in the US and South America). In 2016, Mark started running events under the YATM banner, a practice that continues today with a suite of learning events, both online and offline, including conferences and workshops, interspersed with social gatherings and learning programs. Mark added a podcast in 2017 and then later moved into video content. You Are The Media stems from Mark's passion for helping fellow business owners become trusted voices in their industry. At the heart of it all is a genuine sense of community, one that's fuelled by valuable content and an environment where everyone learns from one another. Discussion points: Consistency of message and the power of showing up regularly and delivering value (without the expectation of getting anything in return)Master one owned media channel first before moving on to a new oneExperiment with different mediums (Mark's latest event was a truly online/offline hybrid effort)Build an online 'space' (a channel and an audience) before you need itCreating a multi-channel newsletter experienceWeb 3.0: build a community where everyone can take something from it (i.e. learning, business opportunities etc) - it drives itself and people enjoy being a part of it'Soft selling' your business services (vs incessant pitching)"Don't be the best - be the only" (Kevin Kelly) | "Don't be the best - be their favourite" (Jay Acunzo)Having a following on social media does not a community make. It's all about connection folks ... ... creating content, building a sense of kinship, delivering value (ongoing) and playing the long game!
