Finale...

Well, this has been quite the session. I have learned so much about utilizing social media to help promote personal branding. From consistent messaging to branding that is all-inclusive, to staying relevant in modern day happenings. Personal branding is a lot of work. It takes organization and time. I will be using LinkeIn a lot more going forward. It has been quite the gem I discovered over the course of this class. 
On a side note, I would like to thank everyone for their participation in this class. I was able to learn from you, and am very appreciative for the opportunity.

Professional Profiles

Creating a professional and effective profile that will fit within my brand strategy will be not be a simple task. Objectively speaking, it would be so easy that a 5 year old could do it. There are certain guidelines and parameters that you stay within and you can achieve success. On the subjective end of the spectrum, this may prove to be challenging. Since I intend on interjecting humor, there is a possibility, or rather certainty that my humor will not be appreciated by every last person in my demographic. There will be times when I will want to push the envelope and will not be able to. I think this will prove to be one of the hardest things about creating a personal brand that is going to be used in the business world. This said, I am sure creating a professional profile that fits within your brand strategy is still a must.
In order to get the most out of your professional profile, make sure to join groups that can help you with ideas that you can utilize to help your brand grow. I also suggest joining a group that will show you how to get organized within your specialty. You should also join a group that has absolutely nothing to do with your profession, but is something that you are interested in. This will break the monotony of getting notifications of same things over and over again, and can help gain new perspective, or a needed break.

Vlogs of Interest

The platform I would like to use is the same one used by Zach Anner. I would like to use this platform because it's fun and it draws an audience. Keep in mind that Zach has a disability and his attitude is what draws his crowd. This said, I think that I would utilize the platform to answer questions that are asked on Twitter to gain viewership.
Zack releases videos on a certain day and therefore, everyone knows when to expect their virtual high-five. In my case, it would be similar in that everyone would know when to expect their answer.
Zach also pulls the viewership because people want to know if they are going to get the high-five and be mentioned in his video. This would work to pull in viewership for me as well.

Enjoy!

Week 3 Blogpost

In trying to create my personal brand, I will take a bit from the following blogs:


I am in no way condoning the illegal use of marijuana, but I liked the format of this blog in that it gave facts along with pictures.  This would prove effective in my personal brand creation.


I think this blog shows the importance of having a good title to capture your target audience. In this particular case, the blogger is reaching out to people looking to rent in New York. The title lets the reader know what information they will be getting from the blog post itself.


This blog was appealing to me because of the way it was presented. I can take from it how to format the success stories through my training, and potentially use this format to cite different techniques for different demographics.



I like that this blog incorporates a video along the the actual blog. I think that it would be wise to utilize both of these things in a blog to capture a bigger audience. Plus I really like Margaret Cho, so yeah… Finally:


The appeal of this type of blog engages the reader in such a way that there is almost something for everyone. There are links to funny things, current events, and political issues and satire. If you can bring a reader to your blog and they spend a few hours there, then branding has worked.

"My First Blog For Class" OR "How Does One Brown Nose Inconspicuously Over The Internet?? [I Really Need An A!]"


This looks like it's going to be a hoot! I haven't blogged in a [long] while. We are currently in our busy season at work, so I've been working 65+ hours a week.  I tend to babble and ramble on about things I feel people care about. By "people," I mean the average American, and by "average American," I mean me. So yeah...

The picture below is a spot-on depiction of me. 

Sometimes I sit and think... Sometimes I just sit.



I love to make people laugh! My hope is that all who follow my blog get a giggle, a chuckle, or the occasional guffaw! On a side note, I type with a British accent because I think it makes me sound smart.

Here is who I follow:
