This week I want to celebrate the release of Personal Branding Magazine Issue 3. The full issue will debut this Friday, February 1st, to all paid subscribers. To sign up for the magazine, please visit the homepage. It’s $12.95 for 4 issues and half of the proceeds benefit The American Cancer Society. The issue has the Google founders, Sergei Brin and Larry Page, on the front cover, as well as six interviews with the top web influencer’s and 25 articles from contributing authors. It is a combined 35 pages and only available in an electronic edition.
To help build buzz and gather new subscribers for the magazine, we will be giving a free “sample issue” as an initial teaser for people to get a feel for the magazine before they decide if it is for them or not. We’ve never done anything like this before, but feel it is necessary in attracting a wider audience. The contents of the magazine can help you change your life and navigate you to future success.
If you would like to contribute to the promotion of the “free sample” issue please direct any and all traffic to www.PersonalBrandingSample.com.
Cover Story: Your Brand Can’t Hide From Google.
There has been much debate and talk of Google becoming a “people search engine,” where you perform background checks of people before you meet them. This is especially used before interviews and before clients are willing to invest in your product or service.
Never before have we interviewed so many famous internet celebrities. This issue we have six of the top brands online, from blogs to wiki’s to social networks. Om, Mark and Gina Trapani were selected in the Top 25 Web Celebrities by Forbes.
- Om Malik, Founder, GigaOm.com
- Matt Mullenweg, Founder, WordPress
- Gina Bianchini, Co-Founder/CEO, Ning
- Mark Frauenfelder, Co-Founder, Boing Boing
- Gina Trapani, Founder, Lifehacker
- David Weekly, CEO, PBwiki.com
