NEWS & EVENTS

OCT 3 | Registration Closes TODAY for Digital Branding Strategist Training Program

Building a digital brand is no longer a "nice-to-have," it is a necessary step to building a sustainable business, advancing a career, and quickly transitioning in the global world of work.

Digital branding for job search has also become more complex, with 66% of recruiters looking at Facebook, 25% sourcing or screening through Instagram, and technologies that scan all online activity to score candidates on personality traits.

In the Digital Branding Strategist certification program, you get new tools to help clients craft an integrated social media strategy built around the differentiation, power, and value of a personal brand.

You'll walk away with processes and coaching tools to:

  • Overcome the mental anguish that makes clients insecure about increasing their online visibility
  • Stop stressing about becoming an "influencer" and start attracting the right followers to achieve your goals
  • Stand out from the crowd and build a digital brand that's unique, memorable, and authentic
  • See tangible results, like increased qualified leads for business, jobs, speaking engagements, and more
  • Stop worrying about what to post and when and develop a consistent process that leads to engagement and visibility

You get done-for-you tools to implement with clients (and yourself!) right away:

  • Coaching plans to guide clients in using any of the top social media channels (LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram)
  • Resources for working with entrepreneurs, business owners, leaders, job seekers, and more

Plus, one-on-one support, an interactive program, and a community of career and branding professionals who share the latest on social platforms to keep you one step ahead of clients!

Regular registration closes TODAY, October 3.
