Why Brand Your Content ?

Whether or not you are a Blogger or just looking to promote a Side Hustle , Product or Business …  You NEED Branded Content!

Branded Content not only looks more professional, it is a way for people to start recognizing you. Often you will associate certain colors , fonts & layouts as belonging to a certain person or product.

This = Branding.

How Do I Brand My Content?

One of the best ways to brand your content is with the use of styled stock photos. It took my Brand from a 2 to a 10 the moment I implemented the changes.

Let’s face it, not everyone is good with a camera or has the artistic talent and props to pull off a professional looking photo . I use a mix of Styled Stock Photos and my own photos but let me tell ya that the Stock Photos are a real time saver!

Where Do I get Styled Stock Photos?

I have a couple of places that I like to Shop for my photos , themes and fonts. They provide high quality images and affordable packages so whether you are a seasoned Pro or looking to get off on the right start , here are a few places you will want to have a look see …

Creative Market – Ahhh .. the beauty that can be found within these cyber walls ….  If you are unable to find something to fit your needs/style, well ..then you must not be human . It really doesn’t matter what your niche is … Creative Market has what you need!

Etsy is another great place to find stock photos, fonts and themes along with Elegant Themes.

 

Personalize your photos by using sites such as PicMonkey & Canva . They are both super easy to use and both have free versions as well.







You may even want consider having a Custom Made Logo and you can find some inexpensive options on Fiverr. 
(any kind of Logo Design for $5!! )

So to Sum it all up … Once you have decided on your Niche & Focus , It is time to Brand Yo’self!

  • Choose 2-4 Complimentary Colors
  • Use Clear Images that stand out
  • Find 2-3 Complimentary Fonts
  • Create Content

An additional thing to consider is having your brand or website name on all photos to watermark them. You WANT people to know who you are and how to find you!

      Absolutely! It was the same when I had a brick and mortar store … Had all my bags and packaging custom made with silver foil … kind of the same online. You want things to look more upscale …

    Great advice. Branding is definitely the thing now but the struggle where to start and what resources are out there. Appreciate the advice

    Reply
    • Jennifer Dawn

      Hi Pennie! For sure! It doesn’t matter what your business or blog is really . It is something you either need to constantly research and test different changes OR find someone who is already doing it and have them mentor you ( re courses) It can be a real challenge some times but once you find your voice the growth is insane!
