Personal Branding Expert, JW Dicks, Esq. Discusses Personal Branding and the Power of Recommendations

JW Dicks, Esq., personal branding and business growth expert, discusses the importance of becoming a valuable resource to your prospects.

Orlando, Fla. – October 4, 2010 – Co-founder of the Dicks and Nanton Branding Agency and best-selling author, JW Dicks, Esq., America’s Foremost Expert on Personal Branding for Business Development, recently posted a blog exploring staff recommendations at retail stores and how businesses can use the same strategy to increase their business through personal branding.

The latest blog, titled “Personal Branding Tip: Give ‘Em Your Picks!” was posted on October 4, 2010, on JW’s website, The post includes the following excerpt:

I like the idea of matching a personality with recommendations.  I imagine that if I were a frequent customer of this music store that I went to, I would probably get to know some of the staff and their personalities.  If I ever “pulled the trigger” on one of their suggestions and liked it, then I would be more willing to buy one of their recommendations in the future.

This personal branding strategy works for almost any business.  Personal branding consists partly of showcasing your personality to allow your customers or clients to get to know you.  Once people get to know you and learn to trust your expertise, they are more willing to take your recommendations seriously.  Let your customers know what your “picks” are and provide them with some value that will encourage them to seek out your opinion on other things.
