Manage Your Brand
It doesn’t matter who you are, you have a personal brand that comprises your credibility, personality, and reliability. It’s how you show the world who you are and allows you to mold people’s expectations of you. If you are a traveler in your social media, people expect you to be a well traveled individual in real life. This helps them cater conversations to your interests without being overtly creepy (yes, we have all done the social media dive before a date, but at least we are secretive of what we know). Social media allows anyone to be a detective.
This is all imperative for the success of your brand. By having a social media presence, you can build your brand in a way that attracts new customers and keeps the old ones engaged. It is the ideal platform that shows you are an expert in the field. To manage this effectively, you need to be consistent with what you share, how often you share, and the voice you use when sharing.
Everything should be relevant and informative, but don’t forget, if you have a chance, add just a little spice.
