To be a product : A study about how to communicate your identity on the Internet with a blog as communication tool. (English)
The users of social media channels are today increasing rapidly. Because of this it has become more important for individuals to be seen and stand out of the crowd. The concept of personal branding has become more widespread and is today an important factor for individuals who want to communicate their personality on the Internet.The purpose of this study is to examine the role of personal branding in today’s society and to find similarities in how established bloggers use communication tools to increase their visibility. This has been done through qualitative interviews with individuals who write and shape their blogs depending on how they want to be seen on the Internet.By analysing our findings we came to the conclusion that personal branding is becoming more important in a world that is becoming more and more digitalized. Since the study has been viewed on from a transmitter perspective we have created a model that has the purpose to be an alternative guideline to show how to create a strong personal brand with a blog as the communication tool.
