In The eLearning Coach New Year’s tradition, I’m presenting another list of compelling ways to learn online this year. Opportunities for learning seem limitless, applications get smarter and the content gets richer. I just hope we don’t all evolve into robot heads at some point. Enjoy! At the end you’ll find links to lists from the three previous years.

Your Digital DNA – The Physician’s Presence on the Internet

Your Digital DNA – The Physician’s Presence on the Internet | Business Communication | Scoop.it

Remember that 5k that you ran in residency? The political article you wrote for an alternative newspaper as an undergrad? The pictures your friend recently posted of you on Facebook?

 

It all exists on the Internet.

According to a recent study by BrandYourSelf.com, there are over one billion names searched for on Google every single day. Of the people that search those names, 94% of them look only at the first page on Google. One in four people do not have any positive content on the first page of Google at all.

 

Positive or negative, it is an almost certainty that there is some information available about you digitally.

The problem? There is nothing you can do about it.

 

Before any speaking engagement, I always visit review sites (like ratemds.com) for physicians to find out more about the attendees in the audience. It helps me understand their digital footprint and where they stand on the Internet. At this particular engagement there was a very well respected physician known throughout the community as a brilliant doctor. You can imagine my surprise when I saw absolutely horrible reviews for this physician. Upon further inspection I realized that it was a different doctor in the same specialty practicing in a different state. They both had the same name and they were both M.D.’s.

 

The difference between the well-respected physician in the audience and the poorly reviewed doctor in a different state is the ladder had a strong digital footprint. He had a web page, a blog, articles published and a social media presence that went along with his poor reviews. The fact of the matter is, this poorly reviewed physician owned the first page of Google.

 

So what is the implication of a patient searching on Google for this well-respected physician’s name? If they do a cursory glance and don’t recognize the state where he practices, they could be confused into thinking that he’s a terrible physician without ever being seen as a patient.

 

Because no one has a completely unique name, your reputation of and a colleague’s poor Digital DNA can be completely confused.

While it is impossible to completely “push” someone down a Google search, it is possible to be proactive and start taking command of your digital footprint.

 

We’ll talk in a later post about steps you can take to strengthen your Digital DNA immediately. But first, it’s time to listen. What are people saying about you or your physicians on the Internet? What information is freely available about you on the first page of Google? I guarantee it’s not just the stagnant web page the hospital or practice has.

 

Action Steps:
1. Google your full name with and without your degree behind it
2. Google any variation of your name (ie, Ken or Kenneth)
3. Login to ratemds.com, healthgrades.com and Yelp!. Search for your name and see if anyone has reviewed you or one of your physicians
4. Write down the positive, negative and neutral information about you
5. Write down any links that are associated with your name but aren’t about you

How does it look? Leave your thoughts in the comments below. I’d love to hear from you!

Google Plus and Opportunity | Social Media Today

Google Plus and Opportunity | Social Media Today | Business Communication | Scoop.it

Despite the fact that it's the fastest-growing social networking site around – and the one that might have the biggest potential going forward because of the support it gets from the world's most popular search engine – a lot of business owners, executives, and marketers just don't understand Google+ (also known as Google Plus or G+) as well as they would like to.

 

In fact, many are a lot less familiar with Google+, and its features, than they are social sites like Facebook and Twitter that could have, arguably, less online marketing power.In one sense, this is only natural. Google+ is still the newest of these sites, and its features and buzzwords change more rapidly than the others do. Still, if you're serious about generating leads from your business website, there isn't any excuse for failing to put together a comprehensive social media marketing plan, Google+ included....

It may be hard to manage stress levels and stay motivated during the job hunt, especially if you feel like you're not in control of the situation. 


But thinking this way is the exact reason why you feel nervous inside.

And then "you won't cope so well. You'll lose your critical-thinking abilities," Dr. Sharon Melnick, a business psychologist and author of the book Success Under Stress, tells us. 

In this interview, Melnick gives us some tips on how job seekers can maintain stress levels by pushing their "panic reset button," which activates a nerve in order to "loosen the area around the heart." . . .

The Two Parallel Styles of Small Business Content Marketing

The Two Parallel Styles of Small Business Content Marketing | Business Communication | Scoop.it

Content has been the big play for over a year now in the world of marketing.

 

Content has been the big play for over a year now in the world of marketing. It’s the glue that holds social media marketing and search engine marketing together and it’s becoming so prevalent that the old ways (the ones everyone started using this year) are already starting to become obsolete.

 

Don’t get me wrong – the techniques themselves still work. The problem is that everyone is starting to get it. The competition level for content marketing at the small business level has gone from non-existent at the beginning of 2013 to hyper-competitive before the end of the year. It’s too easy, too important, and has too many people talking about it for most companies to miss.

 

Perhaps as bloggers, we did our jobs right. Now, we’re faced with a dilemma – taking it to the next level. Thankfully, the strategy is pretty much the same with an expansion into a two-style mode. By going with this format, you’ll be able to stay ahead of the competition that is starting to catch up to you...
