Also I suggest that unless you are paid to blog, that you limit your blogs so you are not creating too much expectation. Less can be more when it comes to blogging.

First impressions count, whatever the occasion.   It's definitely worth taking the time to get this part of your personal brand right.

 

More and more, first impressions are formed online - I now regularly search a candidate's Social Media presence before interviewing for a role on my teams.

 

Our challenge is to make sure that our central pitch is consistent and true (people can spot a fake!) but it needs to be tailored for each SM platform. 

 

Different words, same message.

This is a unique tool for marketers to establish what their consumers interests are. Facebook has been very successful in attracting businesses which are looking to create awareness for their brands. Marketers are able to find insights into the target audiences, what their interests are and create a basis for their market research. This upgrade complicates the idea of Twitter, however marketers and businesses may find it a useful tool.
