The creator of Self Makers, Conor Lynch, launched his first personal brand website in 1999. Yes, a personal brand website a whopping 21 years ago! The personal brand profile pages which became common on social networks like Bebo, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, You Tube etc. all came much later.
As Conor was about to travel on a working visa to Australia, he decided to hire a friend to put together a simple personal brand website to show off his skills in online marketing. It worked and he quickly got a great job in Sydney with a four year employment visa.
While in Australia, Conor launched a more edgy personal brand called Conman. This was mostly a t-shirt brand and had some notable successes before being overtaken by a safer personal brand ‘Connector’ in 2008. This personal brand had the name ‘Conor’ hidden in it and started off as a blog and meetups for the digital community. It grew to become a successful marketing agency achieving seven figure annual revenues.
Conor has worked with many people on personal brands in sectors like food (Roz Purcell), sports (Tadhg Furlong), consulting (Gerard Reid). He has also helped set up many collaborations between influencers, talented creators with brands like Huawei, Volkswagen and Sony.
