If we ever met me in real life, I’d be just as I am in the following video.
If we ever met in real life, I would be encouraging, talking about others who have inspired me that I think you should check out.
If we ever met in real life, I would take you to my favorite ice cream shop where they serve up Maple Bacon Ice Cream.
If we ever met in real life, I would have a smile on from ear to ear, just like that picture of me on the right.
If we ever met in real life I would listen to you, ask questions and make you laugh your face off. I’m funny. Even this chick thinks so, and she’s a hilarious humor blogger that has written for HuffPo, Scary Mommy and others.
If we ever met in real life, you’d get that I am no different online than I am in real life (except maybe that funny part. I think my funny doesn’t translate as well in the written word. You need all the theatrics because I’m 4’11”).
Be Your Brand. Be who you are and own it.
In today’s video post, I talk about being the same person on line that you are in real life. It should be an equal blend. If not, what’s the point? I talk about a person I met over the weekend who embodied this perfectly. It blew me away.
Take a peek…
Remember that the profiles you are connecting with online, are real people.
People want to feel like they are being heard, because deep down we all want to matter.
To stand out, all you have to do is remember that in every interaction you make. Ask yourself, how can I make this person feel heard? And act on it.
The book I referenced is How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
And here is Uncustomary Art (Mary), on Facebook so her birthday present of 2,000 fans will be realized!
Here is the Instagram quote I referenced that was the inspiration for this post
I’m going on vacation next week. I’m authentically being my brand and taking a break, for realsies! I am not just doing it in real life and pretending that I’m on with automated tweets and shares. In real life, we need time to recharge, refresh and spend time with our families. But, you can go on vacation with me! Wouldn’t that be fun! We can share caramel lattes and glazed donuts on the lake and talk about that time I thought cutting my hair short was a great idea (The Karate Kid circa 1984 is not a good look for me).
I am sending an email to my VIP subscribers telling them how to spend a week with me in the Adirondacks (along with an exclusive social media tip of the week, per usual).
