When I first started this blog, I had a really hard time figuring out what to call it. And as you can see, I ended up calling it the same as my name!

  • But why did I do that?
  • Why did I not just pick a nice brand name instead of my own name?
  • What are the benefits and drawbacks of creating a personal brand like this?

These and many other questions are answered inside today’s video. And also, I am inviting you to join me for my exclusive interview with Katie Freiling about her Cash In On You program. The webinar will provide you with an amazing review of what it takes be set up a very powerful, influential and successful brand.

  1. Gideon,

    Another great video my friend.

    Were you using your new Big Ass camera – I noticed how the background was blurred?

      Just used my humble little Canon 60D with a nifty fifty lens set at 1.8 for the aperture – if that makes any sense :)

  5. Great video , thank you for the tips . Keep up the good job.

  6. Thanks @Gideon. As someone who will be launching a personal brand shortly, your perspective is interesting.

    BTW, how are you able to include the YouTube comments on this page?

  10. I think selling your personal brand massively depends on what you’re marketing within it. I can see where it would come in handy depending on the business.

    In the cases where selling it might be valid, I’d think making the business in question it’s own entity would be a wise choice. You can still brand yourself outside of that while making it clear you run that particular business. That way you have the personal brand and it’s not as difficult to remove yourself from it if you decide to sell.

    Two things, Gideon, first, your website is not looking right in internet explorer 8, the content in your right column widgets seems to flow and disappear under the right edge, like if the content were to big to fit in the box. Second, I would point out to you that it is not so much your “brand” that would be so hard to sell as the fact that your brand is so integrated with the notion of your persona appearing in each and every one of your videos. So along those lines I’d like to ask about the branding of an alias, would that be counter to the basic premises of “personal branding”?

  18. Hi Gideon,

    Thank you again for another great video.
    As Kerwin, could you tell us how you added your youtube comments in your blog?
    Thank you very much for your help!!

  19. good video :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  26. AvidDivaofficial

    What about when you have a pen name? I have a couple of pen names (one for short stories and poems), one for my procrastination blog. At the end of the day though, it is my picture. How do I spin that off or even, should I spin that off so that I can sell it later? Is it even more important to guard your image under those circumstances?

  33. Thanks Gideon,

    That is great info. I started out trying to create a brand online and struggled. Now I’m changing my focus and creating my own personal brand. With much better and more rapid success.

  34. GideonShalwick

    my original surname is “van Schalkwyk” – but that does not go along well with the English speaking world lol!

  35. GideonShalwick

    great thoughts there Aaron! I like what you said about making the business it’s own entity separate from your own brand. That’s what I’ve been doing with Rapid Video Blogging and some of my other products/businesses too.

  36. aaronedgardrum

    Thanks Gideon! What can I say, I’m learning from the best ;)

  37. JDIESeLMUSIC

    What type of camera was used to film this video? The quality is great.

    Personal branding is so important and something we have concentrated on from the day we first started our business online. Video is just the perfect way to do that. Love your videos and content Gideon

    I MISSED IT PLEASE HHELP !! LOL

  41. makeitmediatv

    Hi Gideon, Just wanted to say thanks for your videos they are ace & really helping my video business in the UK. There is a company in the UK who use the meet like know and trust as their slogan. 4Networking. They are a networking group & the idea is you get to know people and when they like and trust you they are more likely to buy from you. Simples!

  42. I think all that you offer is great, Gideon. In my case with personal branding, a guy with the same name who was a senator and was shot, comes up all the time when putting in my name. So I use TheEqualRelationshipGuy rather than my name for this reason.

  43. GarthPhilpot

    You have a great looking home, you are lucky to be working from it !

  44. ikat75

    Hi Gideon, Thanks for the great content. I was wondering if you were using your canon 60D for this video. I love the blurred background effect, it looks very professional and the fact you’re in a home it makes it look very warm and inviting to watch. Feels like I’m having a chat with you over coffee :) Thanks! Deya

  45. GideonShalwick

    yeah it was the 60D with a nifty fifty lens… (1.8 50mm)

  46. poolsnowtx

    After reading your free report i want to jump into getting your rapidvideoblogging course but i cant seem to find it or order it… Can i get it somehow? I have a lot of questions. And im wishing i could get a more detailed guide to help me out. All the best Blake.

  47. GideonShalwick

  48. poolsnowtx

    Ironically, this video only has 3,800 views after more than a year.

    Nonetheless I did watch the whole thing.
    However, didn’t click on any links< which is what I know you were hoping I was going to do.
    On the other hand, you got a comment out of me. Which is sort of the consolation prize.

  57. GideonShalwick

    Hehehe thanks for your comment man! I appreciate all kinds of interaction on my channel!

  58. Talosia Haulangi

    What a great video. I really enjoy that Gideon thank you very much.

    Hi Gideon, how does it feel to be ahead of the trend?
    I’ve never left any comments on your videos, so I decided to change that trend, since you are already ahead “2013″ and I’m still here in “2012″ let me make good use of this time machine to let you know that it feels strange to be in 2012. Look forward to keeping in touch with you in the near future. Congrats, you are the best.

  62. Gideon Shalwick

    Haha! Yea we do live in the “future” over here in Australia. Thanks for your nice comment! All the best for 2013!

  63. uniproductsworld

  67. Barry Keane

    Hey Gideon. Another great video. On the topic of selling your personal brand. I researched annimation in video. Finding out if you create a cartoon type charactor for people to follow they can see it as a spokesman. So giving him your same name will help people become used to the new cartoon Gideon over time. You can then release the brand easier. May not be best suited for your suituation, but others who are shy of the camera may like the option.

    Hmmm great idea Barry! I’ll let that one simmer for a while!

  69. Gideon Shalwick

    Sure thing Jacqueline! Can you please email my assistant at support AT rapidvideoblogging . com? She’ll set you up with a time…

    Great video!

  73. jalandajames

    Great video Gideon. I’m so jealous of your Aussie light. I film in a dark NYC apt. I’ve started a 100 day Personal Branding video journey. It’s uber fun. You’re so right!

  74. AngelinaHelenTV

    Hey Gideon,
    I’m glad I stumbled across your name earlier. I’ve seen a few of your videos so far and have really enjoyed them. You are just so awesome and informative! Best wishes!

  75. Edward Freeman

    Self Branding is absolutely important and it’s exactly what brought me to your video. The old saying people due business with whom they like and trust is in almost any descent sales book you can pick up. But Zig Ziglar was definitely one of the best. Your video was informative. Thanks Edward L. Freeman -

  76. CandidMoney

    The thing is you should not make personal brand just for the sake of your business. I mean, you should not become a fake person just to promote your business. Do it with right intention and right attitude.
