52 Weeks of Plan, Do, Track - Week 25: Building Connection & Community While Strengthening Your Personal Brand on Social Media
Week 25 Focus – Building Connection & Community While Strengthening Your Personal Brand on Social Media
Focus Question: What does building connection and community mean for you? Why is this important?
Connection and community are yearned for by many operating in the virtual and small business space. What are the ways you want to build stronger connection with others, and create more community? This week’s focus is on using social media as an avenue to build more connection and community.
As a virtual business it’s likely that many of your days are spent operating solo, bouncing in and out of virtual calls with people who might be hours, and time zones, away from you. Isolation is often seen as a downside to virtual work. Virtual and remote professionals may be more proactive in exploring various avenues for creating community and connection.
In building community consider these questions:
Review or create your strategy around social media. What’s the purpose? What are you doing to do, WHEN?
What can you do to magnify your message? Consider how you can magnify and repurpose. What can you share different spins on the same item across platforms? For example, if you have written an article on something, could you pull out a couple of quotes to make it a tweet, or serve as a quote graphic? Could that same article become the seeds of a presentation?
Review visibility tips.
Consider what your strengths are and what your key message is.
