Just like a tree needs strong roots to grow and a house needs a strong foundation to build a family home on? Your online business and presence needs a strong foundation and let me cut to the chase that is your website. Either it’s a one page theme showing your resume a site to brand yourself into an industry. Possibly you wish to build your own business selling your products and services. Whatever it is you want to do online you need a home and that’s simply going to be your website / blog.
This month on DAITHIOROURKE we decided to focus on branding and personal branding. Personal Branding is one of the most efficient ways in which to build a brand. Branding can be easily rushed into with little thought put into it. Personal Branding allows you to take a step back and gives you the permission to THINK ABOUT IT. This is important and will save allot of time and effort reducing the need for re-branding in the future. Build a brand that has a clear message with easily relate-able visuals that enhance that message.
First impressions last!
And that is why personal branding is so important. “If you are not branding yourself someone else will and it may not serve you well” Dan Shawbell . Personal branding allows people to consciously, present themselves to those around them in a way that communicates there true passion and purpose. This then gives focus on how best to go about in achieving that.

Build Your Personal Brand In 2015
Hi and welcome to my first post of 2015 considering that its the new year and I really want to get you off to a good start. I decided to give you the first step required for a successful online presence.
It was a pleasure to interview Susan Chritton Executive Career Coach, Master Personal Brand Strategist and Author of Personal Branding For Dummies and now Personal Branding For Dummies, 2nd Edition
My intentions for 2015: Is to go through each step required for a successful online presence. Personal Branding is the one strategy in my opinion that separates you from the masses. It allows you to define who you are, what do you want, and how then to communicate that to the rest of the world.
So why do I say this: Well after conducting a large scale research project on Personal Branding in 2014. I soon realised its important’s and once I implemented my findings of this research I soon experienced its important’s.
