How to Turn Your LinkedIn Profile into a Career Video - Business 2 Community

How to Turn Your LinkedIn Profile into a Career Video - Business 2 Community | Social Media Products and Tools | Scoop.it

The good news: recruiters use LinkedIn to find candidates for jobs. The bad news: there are 260 million LinkedIn profiles out there, making it rather difficult to stand out.

Here’s a solution: new tool Resu-MEtransforms your LinkedIn profile into a compelling career video complete with a voice-over and a handy infographic – in just a few clicks. You then get a unique URL to share on social networks.

Just like tools like Vizify and BrandYourself do cool things with Twitter and your online presence in general, Resu-ME are using the API straight from your LinkedIn profile (which you have to authorise).

10 tips to make your business more lucrative using YouTube

I don't like video.

I don't have any skill with graphics or video editing, and I am not at all comfortable with my video presence. 

If I'm being perfectly honest, I don't even like watching video. I would much rather read a story than watch a story, and often ignore ESPN clips and look for other sources of news if I want to find something out and the result was a video.

But the fact is, most people aren't like me.

Most people love watching video and being educated and entertained, and the staggering growth and use of YouTube is a testament to that fact.

So how are you using YouTube to improve your business?

Personally, I'm deliberately participating in more Hangouts On Air and using that content to reach a broader audience, as well as embedding them on my own site. And next year, I have several ideas for ways that I might create videos and upload them to YouTube to take advantage of the platform.

Guest blogger +Emma-Julie Fox details 10 ways you can use and improve on your YouTube presence. I'm looking forward to going through each of these tips and applying them to my YouTube channel next year!

Read all ten tips: http://www.thesocialmediahat.com/blog/how-make-your-business-more-lucrative-through-youtube-12042013 

What about you? Are you using YouTube? If not, what's stopping you?

Infographic: 13% of social media users are identity theft victims | Social Media Products and Tools | Scoop.it

The tension between the monetization of social networks and people’s desire for privacy is something that doesn’t show any signs of resolving. The most valuable thing that social networks have is your information, and this infographic does a good job of vetting out where your information is and how vulnerable we all are because of it.

Identity theft!

Iron Dane Richards's comment, September 26, 2013 10:12 AM
Its a shame that we have so much internet identity theft in this digital age. One solution I highly recommend to many of our clients is the use of prepaid debit cards in order to minimize potential loss with like a Walmart, Netspend or Bancorp Prepaid Visa or Mastercard for online purchases and link that even further through a paypal debit card. Our website has links to business cards also http://ironsolutionsgroup.com/business-credit-cards/

Justin Seeley is one of the most fantastic instructors when it comes to screencasting. Initially he talks about the importance of sound quality and software. He recommends the Blue Yeti and Screenflow (or Camtasia).


However, I think the most important part comes in at time stamp 04:03 when he talks about practice!! 


I see so many video screencasts that could be improved with a little practice and also making sure that you have the right webpages open and ready for demonstration.
