How to Build Your Own Brand

How to Build Your Own Brand | Writer, Book Reviewer, Researcher, Sunday School Teacher | Scoop.it
Personal branding should be a priority for everyone. Long gone are the days of individuals staying at a job 15 to 20 years. You have got to be an expert on something.
Angela Watkins's insight:

When I was the business coach host-editor-writer in 2005 an author once told me that "you" are the "brand."  Stick with your niche/area of expertise ... find the media that works best for you .... I prefer the digital avenues & have since 2000.

PR is winning the Content War

PR is winning the Content War | Writer, Book Reviewer, Researcher, Sunday School Teacher | Scoop.it

PR people are getting out their message at a time when the traditional media are less able to provide a counterweight. ... “The muscles of journalism are weakening and the muscles of public relations are bulking up — as if they were on steroids,” New York Times investigative reporter David Barstow told the authors. But the story is more than just numbers. The change to digital communication has allowed corporations and organizations to bypass the traditional media gatekeepers and tell their story directly to the public in a way they never could before. Do you get emails from political candidates you’ve given money to? Have you supported a cause on Facebook? Shared a photo about a product or an event? These are just a few examples of direct PR-driven communication. If you’re looking for a recipe, are you more likely to find it in the newspaper food section — or to visit bettycrocker.com or one of the hundreds of food industry-sponsored sites eager to provide you with useful and entertaining cooking content?...

Why Every Business Should Be On Pinterest | Social Media Today

Why Every Business Should Be On Pinterest | Social Media Today | Writer, Book Reviewer, Researcher, Sunday School Teacher | Scoop.it

Every business should be on Pinterest because the site’s very structure makes it the most sales-actionable social media platform around. Is Pinterest the most sales actionable social network out there? This very question came to me as I came across a recent interview with Pinterest CEO Ben Silbermann in MIT Technology Review. When asked the question oft-dreaded by many a techrepreneur, namely, “when do you plan on making money,” the first sentence of Silbermann’s reply struck me as instructive: “The whole reason Pinterest exists is to help people discover the things that they love and then go take action on them, and a lot of the things they take action on are tied to commercial intent.” While this snippet (the rest of his reply was similarly tangential to the question asked) sounds a bit like an opaque dodge, for business’ and marketers, it should be a clarion call to action....

Social Media for Business: Get Social or Get Lost | Social Media Today

Social Media for Business: Get Social or Get Lost | Social Media Today | Writer, Book Reviewer, Researcher, Sunday School Teacher | Scoop.it

Looking back upon my middle school years of Xanga and Myspace, it’s mind blowing to examine how greatly social media has evolved in the past ten years. The rapid evolution of the social web has brought new brand leaders and businesses to the forefront, while leaving some well-established Fortune 500 companies in the dust. Many successful companies wonder why they should adapt to new practices and use social media for business. Social media research conducted by the Harvard Business Review found that 79 percent of companies surveyed are using or plan to use social media in the future. So what happens to that other 21 percent? Are they affected by the changing dynamic of reputation management and online business practices?

 

The answer is yes.

 

My advice? Get social or get lost....
