Brand You Personal Branding

The desire to have flexible hours and the ability to work from anywhere has never been more popular. Yet self-doubt, fear, technology challenges and more keep many people from sharing their message with the world by pursuing their passion and starting a thriving business.

Jonathan Milligan is the author of the book, Your Message MattersJonathan and I have been longtime friends and in this interview, we talk about the confidence to believe your message, define your message, market your message, and of course, live your message.

As I complete yet another trip around the sun, I wanted to share a few things I've been doing to stay sharp, push my productivity, and process many of the things going on in the business.

One of the big things I'm working through is how we as human beings can navigate the fear of success. So much of the time we think fear of failure is what will cripple us, but I'm starting to think there's a flip side to that coin.

In this episode you'll hear some terrific insights from several of my friends as they've helped me navigate this new season. I want to give a particular shoutout to Loren TrlinKristina Hoyer, and Lauren Davis for their contributions.

You'll also hear a bit about my morning routine, and you can watch a short Instagram video of it here.

Truthfully, I haven't paid much attention to SEO (search engine optimization) over the years. My thinking was that my site would never get enough traffic to really warrant playing the SEO game. I could not have been more wrong.

Robby Fowler joins me today and together we are going to unpack how we are trying to fix my SEO. The bottom line is that Google doesn't know which "Mike Kim" I am, and when Google is confused then I put myself in a position to confuse people who search for me.

Tune in and you'll learn:

  1. Why you must think of yourself as an "entity" rather than just one site or person on the internet

  2. The surprising reason why I need to delete old blog posts from my site (even top-performing ones)

  3. Why I setup a "Google My Business" location-based account even though I am a digital nomad

  4. How I screwed up my blog categories on my site all these years (and what I'm doing to fix it)

  5. Why you should pay MORE attention to SEO if you have a smaller following, and not the other way around

Building a book launch team is generally a good idea for a few reasons. You want folks who have read the book before the title releases, so that you can get reviews.

If people enjoy the book, they can help spread the word about it once it releases. You can also get legit feedback on which parts of the book resonated with readers, which you can turn around and use in your marketing.

Tune in and you’ll also get the inside scoop on the process I used to get people on the team, why social media didn’t work as well to recruit launch team members, and what I plan to do to maintain “energy” among members in the book launch team between now and the launch date.

It was an incredible feeling to finally hold my book in my hands, and in today's episode I share a recording I made just minutes after receiving my shipment of books. I hope it inspires you to keep going, no matter what endeavor you are on.

One of the new endeavors I'm on is YouTube, and I am 100% committed to being strategic and intentional on this channel for five reasons:

  1. Lazy re-purposing of content does not work in today's world
  2. I want to be "searchable" and YouTube is the best way to make that happen.
  3. I want to be THE Mike Kim online, but I'm not the only one.
  4. I want to express myself in new ways and create a new channel.
  5. Seeing myself on YouTube elevates how I see myself.
