JW Dicks, Esq., business strategist and personal branding expert, along with Nick Nanton, Esq., The Celebrity Agent, recently discussed transparency in your business and using the personalities of your employees to build your brand.
Orlando, Fla. – November 16, 2010 – Co-founders of the Dicks and Nanton Branding Agency and best-selling authors, Nick Nanton, Esq., The Celebrity Agent and JW Dicks, Esq., America’s Foremost Expert on Personal Branding for Business Development, were recently named Top 10 expert bloggers on FastCompany.com.
In their latest blog post, titled “The Rise of Internal Evangelists”, Nick and JW discuss strategies that businesses, small and large alike, can use to utilize the unique characteristics and personalities of their employees to build the company brand. The post also contains a video by Nick Nanton.
“If you would set the knowledge free that’s in the minds of the employees that are working with you, you would be creating internal evangelists, people who work internally for you and spread the word about what your company does to the outside world, by doing this more prospects will come across your employees’ information and will create bonds with new potential clients that you might never reach on your own,” write Dicks and Nanton.
“We all know that consistent, relevant content drives traffic online and the beauty of this type of system is that the knowledge your company will be spitting out on a regular basis will be voluminous if you have 20, 30, 50, or even a hundred employees out there using social media and the Internet to push and let people know about you. This works even better if you can teach them to display their expertise, and show their personality, like we discussed in two of our previous blogs. This concept can absolutely make your business explode,” continued the authors.
“These strategies work for everybody, everywhere and you can use them in any business. But you’ve got to display your expertise and you’ve got to show your personality and you should really consider letting some of your employees get involved too. Who knows where it might lead!” write Dicks and Nanton.
