  • Geoff,

    the #prStudchat & other #tag initiatives are great - i hope someone writes a blog post about it.

    Could you recruit Dierdre or Sarah or the others to join our class for 10 mins or so via skype to introduce herself, her book and give us a quick intro to the idea of building a positioning on top of one #hashtag on twitter.

    Just writing a blog reporting on the hottest or most valuable #hashtags to follow on twitter could be great, unique positioning that would put you on radar.

    Let's talk a little bit more about the 'student' positioning. My fault for not going far enough in our first chat. As I have mentioned to many, I think there are ways to remain flexible about your focus, open to future possibilities but still take strong positioning. For example, an 'Explorer' has strong, positive attributes. Anywhoo with a little work, I think you can be less literal along these lines of thinking and come up with something that is a fit.

    I think you are unique because you are a connector and facilitator.

    Good start.
