  6. 6. Important Terms What do I mean when I say… Social Media: Web and mobile technologies to turn communication into an interactive dialogue. Creates a 2 way conversation between the business and consumer and allows consumers to create user generated content by contributing. Brand: Name, term, design, symbol, or other feature that identifies one seller's good or service as distinct from those of other sellers.. Personal Brand: The process where people and their careers are marked as brands. The personal branding concept suggests that success comes from self promotion. Top 10 Format Branding began as a way to tell one person's cattle from another by a hot iron stamp
  7. 7. 1. Manage Your Search Results *ACTIVITY- Take a minute to Google yourself • What are your top 3 results? • What else did you find in the results? • Make note of anything you do not want in the results. • Optimize profiles that come up high in search engine results.
  8. 8. 2. Google Profile If you have a Gmail account, you have a Google Profile • Your Google profile shows up in searches. • Your Google profile shows up in chats, on phones, etc. • Editing your Google profile is simple. When logged in to Gmail, click on your avatar on the top right hand side. • *ACTIVITY- Update your Google Profile or create one
  9. 9. 3. Have a great avatar/ profile photo • This should be your face for personal pages and a clear company logo/icon for business pages. This is not the place to put a photo of your pets, kids or other item. • Your avatar should show that you are likeable, friendly, positive. • Your avatar will appear each time you post/ comment so it’s an important branding tool.
  10. 10. 4. The LinkedIn Test • Not just for job seekers. For any professional. • Digital resume that comes up high in search engine rankings. • Complete your full profile. • Make sure you have a custom URL. • SEO TRICK- Include your company’s website. Under website listings choose “other” and write in the specific name for your company rather than just listing “Company Website”. • *ACTIVITY- Update your LinkedIn contact information
  11. 11. 5. Update your Personal Facebook Profile • Check your privacy settings to ensure you’re only providing public information you intend to. Facebook constantly changes their privacy features so make a habit of regularly checking your settings. • Know that setting your Facebook to private, does not mean that it’s really private.
  12. 12. 6. Set up your Facebook Business Page • DO NOT use a personal profile as a business page. People need to LIKE your business page, not add as a friend. – Using a personal profile as a business page is against Facebook policy. • To create a business page, click on any existing business page and click on the “Create Page” button on the top right. • Company information- Include your website and links to other social networks. • Create a cover photo that represents your business.
  13. 13. 7. Write Effective Tweets • Brand your background and bio. • Post educational tips related to your industry. • Retweet and reply to others so you’re actively engaging in conversation. • Provide value to your followers by posting useful information related to the media your represent. • Live Tweets: Post a tweets and photos during events. • Job openings • *ACTIVITY- Post a Tweet or set up an account. “Tweets are my own” is not true!
  14. 14. 8. Instagram • Images trump text. • Best to use the same username for Instagram that you have on Twitter. Easier for people to tag you. • Utilize a few hashtags for each image to optimize exposure. You can comment with hashtags. • Take photos related to your brand that give people a glimpse of what you’re doing real time.
  15. 15. • Search Engine Optimization (SEO). • Fresh new content. • Humanizes and personalizes your brand. • Most flexible form of Social Media because you can incorporate your own posts, social media insights, personal information in addition to information about your company. • Opportunity to post insightful resources that may be useful to future clients and community partners. • ACTIVITY- Write 3 blog topics you can post about 9.
