Promoting yourself in the digital age

Promoting yourself in the digital age | Social Media Useful Info |

The owner of one of my favourite cafes recently started using Twitter and Facebook. However, when you interact with her business online, you get very little sense of the woman behind it. Her online footprint is polite but, frankly, it lacks personality. In reality, she is a larger than life character who epitomises her brand. She lives and breathes her cafe — and is well known (in real life) for her food, unique decor and events.

She told me: "I just don't want to be in the spotlight. I want people to interact with my business, not with me. I don't want to be the centre of attention."

Fair enough. However, in a world where consumers are bombarded with marketing and advertising messages, some experts believe we are living in an age where personal branding is vital for success. And that means NOT shying away from the spotlight.

Great points, there is nothing wrong with being personal-people ought to be personal ( gee, that might be a quote from a Meg Ryan Movie French Kiss

A LinkedIn experiment for the next 30 days

A LinkedIn experiment for the next 30 days | Social Media Useful Info |

That sounds really great. I'll start this 30 day experiment right now. What I like in this experiment, it's the social approach and in the same time, the educational impact on the user... wow, cool! [note Martin Gysler]


Des Walsh has setup an experiment on Linkedin called the 30 day linking blitz, a collaborative project, in which each participant commits to take action on his/her LinkedIn presence and activity, over a 30 day period for 20 minutes a day. The purpose is to make more effective use of our LinkedIn memberships and drive positive networking both personally and professionally with the following aims:


- Amplify our social presence
- Enhance our network reach and level of influence
- Improve our network engagement
- Be more readily findable, for the products and/or services we offer
