brand attentionpersonal brand nAttention deficit disorder is a coinage of the new age. No one seems to have time for anything except those things that are of utmost importance to them. No one is extremely interested in your brand except if it adds value to them. The noise level is not even helping the matter. The noise level online today is just to high but that does not nullify the fact that everyone has a chance of making meaningful impact if one has taken time to know how to join the conversation.

In order not to be infected with this disease, your brand need to maximize every potential opportunity to make a lasting impact. For your personal brand to enjoy immunity against A.D.D, it is expedient that you continually show, market your competitive advantage. Getting attention today is huge work. Promoting a strong brand ‘you’ competitive advantage that qualifies you for targets’ precious time is important. To do this successfully, it is important that individual put a lot of effort in in preparing for their opportunities. When the teacher is ready, the student will show up and vice versa is still relevant. Treat every opportunity in form of attention given you as precious. You can also create your own opportunities by ensuring that you give out a compelling offer that will equate or surpass targets’ time investment.

Remember optimism alone will not do the magic of getting attention from your target. Opportunity without enough time invested is a dangerous syndrome. Let me conclude here that the world is indifferent about who you are. Everyone wants attention. Yours is an extra baggage on them. They will only tag along if you have a compelling offer that will not make your extra baggage a burden but a delight to them. No one wants to waste his time. So beware, do not allow Attention Deficit Disorder to catch up with your personal brand. It has infected many brands. The result of this disease is that many brands have lost their relevance.
