Chris Ducker, founder of Youpreneur, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss building a business around your personal brand.

"People want to do business with other people." -Chris Ducker

Tell Us About Yourself!

Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme, Wal Mart or Target, Microsoft or Apple. Many companies offer comparable products yet consumers develop preferences, becoming fiercely loyal in many cases. When it comes to starting a business, chances are there are multiple companies offering a similar product or service, so what makes yours unique?
According to Chris Ducker, founder of Youprenuer, the answer may be easier than you think. It’s you! Rather than building your business around someone else’s model, Chris’ advice is to build around your personal brand.
By putting the unique, human element in front, you can help your business stand out and better connect with the people you wish to reach.

In This Episode

  • What it means to have a personal brand and build your business around it
  • Why a background in sales is an advantage but not a necessity
  • How your business can become someone’s favorite
  • How to balance automation with personal, human interactions
