The essential elements of your personal brand

Authenticity: Be authentic about who you are and what you represent. Readers can spot the difference.

Consistency: Be consistent across all platforms and interactions.

Ensure you curate the message on each platform. Each platform has a different user and mindset.

Vision: Have a clear vision and mission, and align them with your goals and values.

Versatility: A good personal brand should be versatile and adaptable, able to evolve as you grow and change.

Theme: Create a colour scheme, pick fonts, design a logo, banner, and bio for each platform you create on. Use the same theme on each platform. People will come to recognize these.

It may be worth while doing some research into colours, as each colour triggers different emotions.
