WHAT I LEARNED TODAY

Interesting……well, maybe only to me……
Following my attendance today with an associate to the Federation of Small Businesses Trade Fair in Salisbury, it really does pay to make the effort to meet people and network.

Today I met a couple of guys who were so switched on with IT and web based ‘stuff’ that dovetailed so very well with the kind of things I have planned for the future of my company.

I was so pleased to hear of the experience and current client base that they have, because this marries so well with what I have plans for. 🙂

It pays to network, because, you just never know………!

A SIMPLE PERSONAL BRANDING TIP FOR THIS ‘ON-LINE WORLD’.

No doubt you will keep hearing that we all should have some kind of personal website, blog etc where people can get to know us. 

But what if you don’t have one?

There’s a simple fix.

Take your LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com) profile and make that your portal to “learning more about me”.

Here’s what you can do with that simple little move:

1)    Comment on blogs, articles etc in the space where you want to demonstrate your expertise. Most of them will have you fill out a 2 second form and one of the fields allows you to put your web address in it. So now you have this cool comment and people click on your name to learn more about YOU! A big mistake people make is putting their company website. People buy you first and you’ve done nothing to build your personal brand. Doing this also increases your “Googleability”

2)    Use that as your website if you have a Twitter account.

3)    Include a handy dandy icon like the LinkedIn logo as part of your auto signature in your emails with a hyperlink back to your LinkedIn profile.

4)    Use it as your personal website if you submit articles to websites. as part of your auto signature in your emails.

So there you have it. A real quick and simple way for you to continue to build that incredible brand called “YOU”!
