Be Inspired! But don’t copy!

My #content was stolen. [Why am I not happy about it?]

By a Director, Solutions and Services of a computer hardware company that’s also into Doc imaging. The Director is based in California & handles the marketing for the company.

I first received a #LinkedIn request from this person. I accepted. Then after a while, this copying happened.

I am not a guru on #PersonalBranding. But that didn’t stop me from sharing what I knew on the subject.

The first three points I wrote:

  1. How do you want to be perceived?
  2. What should people remember when they think of you?
  3. What do you stand for?

And the Director wrote:

How do you want people to perceive you?

How do you want to be remembered?

What do you want your name to be synonymous with?

———

What a clever lift?

Escaping Google’s punishment. 🙂

Quotes:

  1. “I don’t worry about people “copying” me. Their next move can’t happen until I make mine.” -Germany Kent
  2. “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.” – Oscar Wilde

My advice to this person:

  1. Please be yourself.
  2. Don’t try to be me.
  3. You can’t be me.
  4. Find the real meaning of “copywriting”.

What’s more: This person is writing a book on Personal Branding that is likely to be published soon on #Amazon.

Happy Creating!!

Personal Branding!

#JeffBezos says: “Branding is what people say about you when you’re not in the room.”

Whether you are an individual / a business, branding is important.

Some pointers to get you thinking:

1. How do you want to be perceived?

2. What should people remember when they think of you?

3. What do you stand for?

4. Do you make others successful?

5. Do you make lives simple, easy & interesting?

6. What should one expect when they deal with you?

7. How do you make people feel when they interact / do business with you?

8. Do you inspire confidence in others?

9. Do you keep up your words?

10. Do you have a purpose or do you solve a problem?

I’ve had many bosses but I want to talk about just two of them now. One was mellifluous, made great presentations in sales conferences. I like him.

The other wasn’t that stylish / sophisticated. But, nevertheless, he made everyone laugh during his presentations.

The second boss treated everyone well. He mingled with everyone. Spent time with all of us after office. I love him.

See the difference.

How you make people feel seems to be very important.
