Social Media Expert, Jason McDonald, Releases Informational Post on Personal Branding

San Francisco, California – October 19, 2015. Jason McDonald, a recognized Social Media expert at https://jasonmcdonald.org/, is proud to announce an informational post on personal branding. Dr. McDonald will be teaching a two-day personal branding course at Stanford Continuing Studies in Palo Alto, California, on November 7-8, 2015.

“Personal branding is more important than ever in this age of instant Google searches and online lookups,” explained Dr. McDonald, Director of the Jason McDonald SEO Consulting Agency. “As I am preparing for the workshop, I thought a quick ‘think piece’ about what personal branding is, and how it matters, would help interested parties think about their own brand image.”

Some companies want to completely re-do their rebranding and McDonald understands that need. Their brand does not reflect what they previously were and they need to either reach out to a new audience or build on the existing one, this is why a brand agency becomes beneficial during this time, not only working on the personal brand but what the brand is linked too.
