      GREAT article, Jacob! These are all excellent ways of establishing yourself as an expert in your field and branding yourself. The important thing to note here is that the branding image/message must be consistent amongst all ways or the mixed messages might confuse your readers and lower your credibility altogether. I can speak from experience because I am both an entrepreneur helping other artists market themselves online, but I am also an artist myself (singer/songwriter). Promoting both of these ‘roles’ at the same time definitely did not have the same response in comparison to me just focusing on one – the latter caters to one specific niche market, resulting in more followers/fans/clients. Thanks again for this!

      I can relate with people doing the branding stuff online, that what a hard nut it is to crack. Most of people are following half of the aforementioned rules and tactics. If all of them are used, which I am going to do very soon regarding my business (not reveling yet), success is granted. All of these rules followed collaboratively will gather a lot of public attention than ever. Thanks!
