How Your Personal Brand is made + NextGen Cattle example
Another Monday Morning Digital Marketing Tip by
Have you noticed that some people are successful with whatever they do? I believe it’s because they know their personal brand is one of the most important things to their success and not because of selfish reasons, but because they have defined what they want to do, who they will work with, and how they will go about their business.
What I believe your personal brand boils down to is trust. We are either building trust or losing it as we work with people everyday. Or as I heard Steve Jobs put it, making deposits or withdrawals with every interaction.
One of the coolest examples I experienced this first hand was recently asking clients and guests of the big flint hills classic sale for NextGen Cattle. While I was interviewing these guests I was hearing almost the same statements about Nextgen as I would hear about the previous company, advisors excel that Derek use to be an owner of. “This is a great group of young guys who are having success faster than anyone else.” Or “Nextgen is the future of the business!”
That’s when the lightbulb went off for me. Derek’s personal brand has carried over to this new adventure and those same work ethic traits that he brought before to a different client base are the same ones that are leading to success in the next venture.
So no matter what you do, just know your personal brand is either increasing or decreasing everyday with every interaction. Now go make some great deposits this week!
P.S. As the holiday and Christmas season is already around us, what’s the personalized gift or video you are going to send to your clients? This was one thing that I knew I wanted to still be known for as I started IMC full time and we already have something pretty cool planned in the works for our clients. And yes it includes our kids haha and I can’t wait to create it!
About Marcus RangelI've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.
I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.
When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Topeka, KS.

What have I learned since writing that “day 1” email a year ago? Well, turns out quite a bit :), I felt it was worth of a top 10 list for a year. 1. Anna, my wife, is and will be my best friend and co-worker, ever.I always thought that we would be apart from 8-5 during most business days since my days of signing up for a full time job. There really isn’t a…Read More
Did you know that most first impressions of your business aren’t from your website? Google your company and look to the right and you’ll see your Google listing starring right back at you. Did you know you or your team can choose exactly what the first picture that shows up on Google is? You can also tell how many people have viewed that photo and others you upload in the Google dashboard. I helped a…Read More
My wife Anna and I were sitting down with a couple of friends a few weeks ago and they asked me what I would recommend they do with their product that has taken off really well. I brought up building their list, and not just their followers on facebook and instagram. Their instant question to what I said was, “Isn’t email dead?” My question back to them was, what if I told you I’ve seen…Read More
