How to Make Yourself a KNOWN Brand

How to Make Yourself a KNOWN Brand

Marketing Podcast with Mark Schaefer
Podcast Transcript

Personal branding is not a new subject. In fact, I suggest that it’s moved to the level of fundamental marketing tactic.

It’s never been easier to create a personal brand – that thing that gets you invited to speak, pitch and engage at a premium price. And yet, there’s never been such a crowded space.

My guest for this week’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is Mark Schaefer. Schaefer is an internationally acclaimed college educator, author, speaker, and strategy consultant. He and I discuss his new book, KNOWN, and how to build and unleash your personal brand in the digital age.

Schaefer has many global clients including Pfizer, Cisco, Dell, Adidas, and the US Air Force. He has been a keynote speaker at prestigious events all over the world including SXSW, Marketing Summit Tokyo, and the Institute for International and European Affairs. Schaefer has appeared as a guest on media channels such as CNN, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and CBS News.

Questions I ask Mark Schaefer:

  • How has the notion of becoming known evolved over the past decade?
  • What’s the first step to becoming known?
  • Where does content fit in now that everybody’s doing it?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • Why becoming known doesn’t necessarily depend on one idea or one platform
  • The importance of being consistent
  • Why people and businesses fail
