Back in the day, the product is the main player to get into business. You have to spend millions for people to recognize your product.

From social media, people who interest in you and get to land to your personal homepage, they will get to learn more specific about the things you offer. A friend of mine, who happens to have great skills in sales, at first, he likes to help other through LinkedIn by posting many of his sales tips, as many friends appreciate and favor his tips, later on he built his own personal homepage and put professional sales insights there, hundreds of thousands of people follow and one way or another he gets business from it, by become a professional sales couch. The homepage now become the real business website.

Many other cases, comes from doing hobby or volunteering their skills in their spare time, then once it began to spread out the good thing is happening, as the more they post their works on their personal home page the more people interest to know and many end up into real business.  Interest to start your self branding now?
