Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield

The decision to have a personal brand or a company brand is a strategic one – here’s what you should consider

If you’re thinking about starting a business, have you thought about whether you want to have a personal brand or a company brand? 

To clarify, a personal brand is one like mine. I’m the face of the company, my name is my website URL, and it’s me that you hear on my podcast. A company brand is one where the business is completely independent of your name – like Starbucks or Kajabi.

When I first started my business many moons ago, it was clear to me that a personal brand was the way to go. 

But as my business continues to evolve, I’m getting curious about what it would look like to transition to a company brand – and if that’s even possible – because let’s be real, I don’t see myself doing Instagram Reels at 90 years old.

In fact, my dear friend Michael Hyatt recently transitioned his personal brand to Full Focus, and it’s been a really great move for his business, and his personal life.

I won’t lie, seeing him do this has me thinking about my own future, and I’m breaking down exactly what’s on my mind in this episode. Tune in to hear: 

  • The pros and cons of a personal brand and a company brand
  • Why I decided to have a personal brand vs. a company brand when starting my business
  • The roadblocks I’m encountering at this point in my entrepreneurial journey
  • What new and established business owners should consider when it comes to their brand

This is a great listen for anyone who is thinking about starting their own business or already has one. 

Oh, and when it comes to my personal brand, don’t worry -- I’m not going anywhere anytime soon.
