    Hi! I’m Claire Bahn, a personal branding expert and CEO and Co-Founder of Online Profile Pros. Starting a business is hard and I’ve learned so much along the way and I want to share that knowledge with you.  I help executives, entrepreneurs & influencers strategize and create their best personal brand. I have a background in branding, public relations and event marketing at start-ups as well as large Fortune 500 companies like Rueters and SAP.

    I first learned how to create a personal brand, when I had to brand myself during my acting and modeling career.  When I started out, I didn’t have much acting or commercial experience, but I knew a lot about marketing and branding.  I also knew that without a great personal brand, I wouldn’t get hired. I had to learn how to define who I was through my photos, resume, social media and online presence.

    I took that knowledge and started Online Profile Pros.  We help individuals build, maintain and protect their personal brand to help them get the jobs, promotions and dates they desire.

    Why Personal Branding is Important

    All of us need to understand the importance of branding. We are CEOs of our own companies: Me Inc. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer for the brand called You.

    Personal branding is about managing your name—even if you don’t own a business—in a world of misinformation, disinformation, and semi-permanent Google records. Going on a date? Chances are that your “blind” date has Googled your name. Going to a job interview? Ditto
