    Thanks for you comment. I understand your opinion, however slide 1-10 was relevant in the context the presentation was originally given. I wasn't quite planning for this to get featured (but I'm please, of course), so it is geared towards people how have seen the presentation live, and want to re-view the slides. I might change it once these people have had a chance to download the version that they saw live ;-)

    Edit: I've edited the presentation to no longer include the introduction to the original seminar.

  • 7. Youronlinebrandbenefits fromhavinganbrandbase Allyourbrandbase…
  • 8. Why a brand base? • Tweets, status-updates, forum posts and comments get buried over time • Having a base lets you keep things afloat • Let’s you link to content again, if it becomes relevant - push content • Let’s your content be indexed by Google and get found by others - pull content
  • 9. Sharing is caring - and networking You communicate your brand by sharing valuable content
  • 10. It’s hard work You have to prove you are worth it - and the work is continous
  • 11. What content should you produce? • Relevant: Must be of use to the target audience • Engaging: Your personal enthusiasm is contagious and your content should elicit a reaction from your readers / viewers • Visual: Pictures and videos are powerful tools that can communicate complex ideas quickly - use them well • Nerdy: If you work within a specific niche, make sure to use that to create very relevant content for a very engaged audience
  • 12. You must provide value • Don’t waste people’s time • Improve their lives - nothing less • Make them more effecient • Make them smarter • Make them happier • Make them richer
  • 13. Platforms Where to focus your attention
  • 14. There are many platforms • LinkedIn • Blogs • Engagement on other peoples’ blogs • Twitter • Google+ • Facebook • Instagram • Pinterest • Communities
  • 15. How about me? A few examples
  • 16. Meta-update: Featured on Slideshare This presentation was featured on the front page of Slideshare - which is a great example of getting exposure through sharing content online.
  • 17. What are the right platforms for you? What do you think?
  • 18. Good content • Write so your audience finds it interesting • Use active language and be personal (not private) • Use visual elements, picture and video • Engage in conversations (especially on Twitter and forums) • Comment, like and share other relevant content and expand your network
  • 19. Inspiration • Product related content • Knowledge sharing: Slides, articles or blogs • News from your business • Content relevant to you niche or market segment (commenting on what’s “in the news”) • Guides, such as “How to motivate through gamification”
  • 20. Remember who your audience is We aren’t all popstars. Luckily.
  • 21. Kristina Halvorson (2012): Content Strategy for the web, 2nd edition “Content is not a feature. It is a complex, ever- evolving, intricate body of information that requires ongoing care and feeding. It’s not something you can check off on a list and be done with.” https://www.flickr.com/photos/pete-karl/5837457283/
  • 22. Be as many places as possible, but only where is makes sense. Only have a presence on platforms, where you are acually going to make an effort.
  • 23. The great big massive advantage: It’s free ! The great big massive drawback: Your time isn’t
  • 24. Summing it up 1. You need to be aware of your personal brand online. 2. Build a brand base and lead people to you content through other platforms. 3. Produce good content that delivers value to your target audience. Prove what you are worth! 4. Have a presence on platforms where you are prepared to make an effort!
