How To Create A Personal Brand Through Content With Mark Schaefer




Using Content To Create A Personal Brand

The show is kicked off with Mark explaining the importance for sales professionals to be creating or curating industry content to set them apart in a busy marketplace.

“Creating content or curating content that can help our customers, I think it’s critical today” – Mark Schaefer

Mark then shares his thoughts on how he thinks everybody should be creating content, regardless of whether you intend to sell through it or not.

“Personally I believe and lets not limit it to blogs, lets say everybody should create content” – Mark Schaefer 

The show is wrapped up with Mark pointing out that creating content isn’t enough, the second and perhaps even more important part of the puzzle is the ability and channels to distribute content to an audience.
