Create Your Writer Brand
Whether you are aware of it or not, you are creating an impression. People are constantly evaluating and interpreting your work, your relevance to them and the value you offer by what you intentionally – and unintentionally – share. “Your writer brand communicates what makes your work unique, and represents an implied promise to your readers of what they can expect you to consistently deliver” (K. Grabas).
A well defined brand:
- Gives clarity and direction to your writing
- Enables you to build an emotional connection with, and attract a targeted audience of readers.
- Guides and enhances your use of social media
- Increases the reach and effectiveness of your ministry
