Build Your Online Brand NOW

Many people are looking to build their online brand & business these days. While some people believe building their online brand is just increasing their social media following, it goes way beyond that. Today, I dissect the essential aspects any entrepreneur or individual should do to build their brand and business with online expert Vito LaFata. Vito is someone I’ve known for 10+ years. There is no one I know that has invested more in their personal and business growth than Vito. And for that, you will greatly prosper today.

In today’s episode, you will learn:

  1. The ONE thing that’s most important to be successful online today.
  2. The five phases of building your online brand & business.
  3. Why social media alone will not build a long-term sustainable business model.
  4. What’s working in social media and what’s not.
  5. How Vito went from a burnt-out brick & mortar business owner to potentiating his vision of owning a vineyard and leading retreats to help people discover, create, and live their deepest purpose. 
  6. How do you build an online business if you don’t have a lot of money or a big following yet?
  7. Why having a strong online presence will ultimately allow you to create more success and scale more impact.

There is tremendous value in this episode for anyone looking to amplify their personal or corporate brand and who wants to create more impact. At the end of the episode, Vito has a special offer just for our IMPACT Show guests for an exclusive opportunity to join Vito, his wife, and business partner Anna Renderer, and yours truly on a live call next week.

Enjoy the show, and please share your ONE takeaway over on your social media.
