I could not agree more, Simone. Find your audience and give them what's appropriate to them, not you.
Thanks, Peter. Glad you agree. I'm checking out the article now by Lisa Barone. Seems pretty great!
That quote is pheonominal, Christine! I live by a rule, that although it sounds rough is spot on. It's call differentiate or die. We all think we have unique properties that add value to who we are, but unless we convey that in an approriate manner it falls on def ears. I love that you say stip away titles because to me that is one of the biggest issues plaguing people. They think that because they hold a rank they are invincible - that is obviously not true. Thanks so much for sharing this. Awesome insight!
It may be a good tool, but my gut is that you don't need a tool to tell you what your evalutaion is. If you are a commen sense individual you know what should be said and what should not be said. Making people "Like" your posts is like having a brand on Facebook only allow you to interact with them if you "Like" them, when in fact you may only be wanting to tell them that you hate them. My advice is clean yourself up to the best of you ability and then trust the third party tools.
Really, very much appreciate the kind words. I'm happy I was able to help. If you're getting into this field now you may want to subscribe to our corporate blog http://brandandreputation.com/blog. I think you'll find it really informative.
Absolutely true, and thanks for the kind words! An issue that arises a lot is that people start to attract attention to themselves in a good way. Whether it be from speaking to clients or being at a business networking event. But once they start to make connections outside of their established circle they only then realize the information that could be taken negatively. Awareness needs to start a lot sooner that your first bad exeperience.
