  • Call for Submissions for Personal Branding Magazine Issue 4: Due March 15th

    Hurry up! I’m only accepting submissions for Personal Branding Magazine Issue 4 from now till March 15th. For this issue, I’m only accepting a total of 10 articles from outside sources. The other 12 will be content produced by our regular columnists. Due to the high volume of articles I receive, not every article will be published in the final issue or sample issue.


    • An article that spans no more than 500 words and relates to the topic of personal branding in some way or another. For this issue, if you can focus it on recruitment, you will have a better chance of being chosen.
    • An short authors biography. Tell me who you are, what you do and any honorable mentions.
    • Your headshot. Please send me a high quality self portrait because each article has an avatar next to it.
    • Any other charts or graphics that align with your article will also be accepted.

    For more information, please visit the “contribute” section of Personal Branding Magazine’s homepage.

    Call for sponsors: I accept between 7 and 10 sponsors per each issue. It’s $100 for a full page advertisement in the full issue, a banner in the sample and a logo on the homepage. You really can’t go wrong. Please visit the sponsorship page for information and contact Scott Bradley with any questions.

    Tag Your It: Andy Beal, Steve Rubel, Drew’s Age of Conversation II, Ann Handley, Anna Farmery, Toby Bloomberg & Peter Kim

    Quick Notes on These Individuals

    • Andy Beal – One of the best online marketers I’ve heard of. He is also a judge for the Personal Brand Awards, has one of the top marketing blogs @ Marketing Pilgrim and is releasing his new book soon, entitled “Radically Transparent.”
    • Steve Rubel – Steve is one of the original bloggers who struck gold when blogging first got popular. His blog provides some great insight and links for everyone.
    • Drew McLellan – Drew is probably the nicest guy I’ve ever talked to on-blog and off-blog. It’s no wonder why his blog is such a hit. He also cofounded the blogger social and is starting to engage with authors for the 2nd round of The Age of Conversation (II), so if that interests you, visit his blog and contact him.
    • Ann Handley – One of my favorite Boston bloggers. She has been a great source of inspiration and a mentor as I’ve progressed. She just started her own blog called Annarchy, which is a collection of her thoughts and experience, much different than her participation on MarketingProf’s Daily Fix.
    • Anna Farmery – Happy birthday! Anna’s blog is another great source for branding information. I’ve even taken some of her content and shared it with some executives (cited her of course).
    • Toby Bloomberg – Toby is a Diva in her own right and that is the name of her blog. If your looking to learn from one of the best female bloggers and have a great conversation, you should comment on her blog.
    • Peter Kim -Just like Jeremiah Owyang, Peter has a great sense of how social media is changing business. He works at Forrester and shares a lot of great statistics on his blog if you get the chance to view it.

    Dan Schawbel is the Managing Partner of Millennial Branding, a Gen Y research and consulting firm.
