Transcript

  • 1. And Communicate Your Personal Brand Dr Amit Nagpal Global Success Coach and India’s Personal Branding Pioneer www.dramitnagpal.co.in
  • 2. Step 1 Getting Ideas to Write
    • Internet in general and Blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and Google + in particular are good sources for getting ideas on the topics you cover
    • But it can be difficult to separate grain from the chaff.
    • You can also get inspiration from nature and people.
  • 3. Step 2 Write the First Draft
    • Always write the first draft without any restrictions (political correctness etc).
    • The first draft must be true expression of yourself or your soul. Be completely truthful.
    • Our writings must come from the ‘I’ or in other words it should communicate our thoughts and feelings.
    • Do not worry about making errors at this stage, as any kind of thinking may create a distraction and disturb the flow of thoughts.
  • 4. Step 3 Read it From Readers’ Perspective
    • We must remember that the most important issue is, our audience must understand our message.
    • If we try to show off our English/language and the audience does not understand the message, we are only making fool of ourselves.
    • We must keep out target audience in mind in terms of their knowledge and exposure. For example if you are writing for a computer magazine targeting at computer professionals, using IT jargon is very much fine but not for average readers.
  • 5. Step 4 Check for Bias
    • The bias can be of two types viz ‘bias for’ and ‘bias against’.
    • As human beings we all have biases (sometimes we are aware of our biases and sometimes not).
    • The biases can be relating to gender, caste, religion, political party, state, country, culture and so on.
    • The important point is to remember that when things are put into black and white, it becomes a record. Whatever we are writing is contributing to our long term brand.
  • 6. Step 5 Check for Errors
    • The errors can be in following areas
    • Grammar, punctuation and spelling
    • Sequencing of thoughts
    • Verification of facts and source credibility
  • 7. Step 6 Take Honest Feedback from Someone
    • Ideally feedback should be taken from a person who is honest and yet provides constructive criticism.
    • A person who has a tendency of only appreciating or only criticizing should be avoided.
  • 8. Step 7 Read the Final Draft
    • Read it again and check the following points
    • One paragraph should discuss one idea only and as one shifts to another point, the paragraph should be changed symbolizing the shift of thought.
    • Are you talking to the audience or talking down to the audience?
  • 9. Thank You
