Welcome to my online E-Book, highlighting the establishment, maintenance, sharing and elevation of ones Personal Brand – the inherent

power of ones name. Recently, I have become increasingly enamored with the far reaching capability that the online age is providing, users and entrepreneurs alike, from various walks of life. Never before, has humankind been so ably equipped with such affordable technology that allows us to reach and share - beyond boundaries, once restrained. Basically, if you have an idea, product or service – that you feel is worthy of offering to the masses – anyone from almost anywhere on the planet, can now afford to boldly share their works, with anyone else, across the expansive globe of the internet. Today, the common man or woman, whether young or old, without regard to ethnicity or culture, irrespective of status or wealth can now compete, and offer products, services and ideas not restricted by the stale attitudes and appetites, once dominated and reserved almost strictly for corporate conglomerates and mainstreamed businesses – Yes, in today’s world - if you conceive it, believe it and are willing to receive it – you can achieve the height of giants. But make no mistake about it – unless you are offering a revolutionary idea, product or service for marketing to the masses, you must understand that most likely your offering is more of a commodity, which will require you to set yourself apart from the competition, in order to build and sustain the level of business that you desire. How does one accomplish this – through the unique differentiation of your offering versus your competitors? Assuming that your product, service or idea, is of equal ability when compared against your foes – you must establish a perceived value that will attract buyers and visitors to your offering. This perceived value is driven by your Personal and Professional Name Brand. As you read through the following pages of this E-Book – I invite you to fully open your mind and completely harness and receive the principles of Personal Name Branding, your personal guide to support and to materialize – whatever your outreach might be. Simply put – It all starts with YOU! Thank you Phillip L. Fletcher Author

Personal & Professional Name Branding – Chapter 1

Why Consider Personal Name Branding? As I became more keenly aware of the potential benefits of “Personal Name Branding” for individuals, businesses and companies (the key individuals within their organizations) – I became more persuaded – that any individual or organization that desired to maintain a competitive balance versus their peers, needed a convenient platform that would allow the creative control what was known and said about them over the web – because ones name is an informational “Global Asset”, that can be used to uniquely differentiate oneself from their competitors – allowing the playing field to be set on at least - a more equal basis. Continually, as I think out of the box, regarding these benefits – I have embarked on a journey to highlight what I perceive are benefits, to be achieved by those in various endeavors and pursuits common to us all. By no means an exhaustive list – consider the following: 1.

Personal Name Branding Benefits – Chapter 2

A “Global Communications Asset” is the deployment and association of ones personal name (over the internet) to disseminate just who you are and what you offer, in exchange to others. The offering may be tangible or intangible, in the form of a product or service (informational or technical). In its initial form, your “Global Communications Asset”, is simply your name, raw at best – but containing enormous potential. As one matures in life, this initial raw potential begins to fashion itself based on ones successes, failures and triumphs in life – raw potential energy over time – continually converting to raw active energy. Every individual contains this initial raw commodity – but in varying degrees, the creation of the converted raw energy is regulated by ones socio-economic, environmental, and educational influences. Ultimately, ones internal motivational attitude coupled with as many external mutual support systems that one might encounter will help to solidify, the continual development of ones - “Global Communications Asset”. A “Global Communications Asset” is a living progressive commodity – equipped for use and service to others. Like any asset – the measure of its performance is based on how effective one employs and utilizes its assets in the creation and perpetuation of successful ventures and endeavors, to enhance ones personal status, and the wellbeing of the community being served. “I am a part of all that I have met – I choose to beneficially affect the lives of all that I touch - directly or passively”.

In the online world – this is accomplished through the creative deployment of your “Global Communications Asset” via the utilization of the unique online SEO (Search Engine Optimization) services of – QAlias ™.

Do you know your – Bilities? Have you even heard of the term – Bilities? For most, the answer to the above questions may not be obvious – but once explained it will become quite apparent – just how important it is to maintain and elevate your – Bilities In a previous discussion, regarding the personal name branding concept – "Global Communications Asset” – the phenomena of deploying and associating ones personal name (over the internet) to disseminate just who you are and what you offer, in exchange to others. (The offering may be tangible or intangible, in the form of a product or service - informational or technical) – I introduced the thought of increasing ones Bilities by harnessing the power of your "Global Communications Asset”, which is your personal name. Remember - A “Global Communications Asset” is a living progressive commodity – equipped for use and service to others. For this to be effective – one must ensure and increase their three – Bilities, which is: 1. Your find-a- bility 2. Your cred-i- bility 3. Your refer-a- bility In no assumed order – each of these attributes are important, in your quest to grow, and sustain – whatever endeavor you faithfully pursue – in the business world or in your personal arena.

The more that others trust you, rely on you, and actually make contact with you – will always pay dividends and go a long way, in aligning you with opportunities that match your life’s quest.

As stated previously, the increase in ones Bility score is generated over time, through the careful maturation of ones Global Communications Asset – which is the inherent power of your name. This strategic deployment of ones name will over time create success – driven by the leadership attributes that will be perceived and acknowledged by your peers. Your name can create positive attraction, which will generate rewards, in whatever endeavor you choose to pursue. To accomplish this, the alignment and affiliation of your name, must be strongly supported and augmented by the elevation of your Bilities Quotient (BQ) – meaning the higher the degree of your find-a-Bility, refer-a-Bility and your cred-i-Bility – the greater the likelihood for success.
