Using content curation to build your personal brand

Creating content on LinkedIn is a great way to build your personal brand, but there are some common mistakes that should be avoided. First, define your audience and don't stray too far from your message. If you're putting out content about drastically different topics without a clear connection between them it could leave your audience confused. Also, make sure your readers can really learn something from your content because that is what will keep them coming back.
