What is your personal marketing strategy? Do you have a presence?

Lately, I’ve been getting into a lot of discussions about blogging with my friends and co-workers. They’re always fascinated to learn about the new medium but most will say, “I just don’t have the time.”

The thing is… in today’s culture, I don’t think a person can afford to not blog. It has to be a priority to have a personal marketing strategy. Blogging is an effective way of marketing yourself and your ideas.

The World Wide Web is truly amazing. It allows for a global ongoing archived conversation. Any one can have a voice and develop a presence in the different communities and conversations that exist.

The thing is your voice has to have a presence.

Things will work better for you if you’re out in your community discussing the issues that are important. I don’t want to have a hermit as a business partner or as an employee.

Blogging isn’t about being overly verbose and whining a lot. It’s about learning to market yourself and your ideas within the global conversation. It’s having a presence.

  1. A nice positive blog, I like it. You’re right….it is about meeting people and exploring your (and others) ideas. The internet allows you to communicate on a personal level with people you’d never meet offline.

    I have friends in the US, Russia, India, Australia, Japan etc..through my blog that will grow.

    Some assume it’s difficult because they don’t know. Simple web browsing and typing skills on a PC can let you blog. Tell them all a blog is, is a little diary you can share with the world…a bit like the Captains Log in Star Trek…….only not voice activated in a starship.

    A blog is entirely personal too….you don’t have to be someone you’re not….it’s your spot to be who you are. People respond to honesty and integrity….they know life is full of grey areas, they know we all have off days, or have sore points in our past or present.

  2. Hey Justin,

    I completely agree with you on this one. I always say that if you aren’t participating, then you don’t exist. Everyone needs to blog.
