Yeah, I know its been a while since I have blogged. I have been very busy with several projects – mainly this one. On this blog post I wanted to discuss the subject of keeping true to yourself. You may have read some of this in Gary Vaynerchuk’s book Crush It but I want to put it in my own words. When you conduct business you should always be true to yourself. Keep your personality in everything you do. The main reason is this:
Collectively our customer’s BS meters are getting more accurate. If you dare to venture into the world of social media your followers need to see the same person they contact on the phone to buy something as they do in youtube videos and twitter status updates!
As you can tell from the content I produce, I have a casual approach to business. Don’t let this fool you. I am after the money just as any other sales person is, I have to pay the bills. However, my approach with customers is to build a true relationship. Which is the same thing I strive for on the different social media mediums. It’s all about the relationships! Find what works for your DNA though. My solution is my own. If you are the type of guy or gal who is all business – all the time, then be the best person out there at that. On the hand if you are a joker who loves to make people laugh, let that show in your personality. Just make sure that when you get into twitter, facebook, youtube, flickr and the rest that your push that same image.
Anyways that’s my post. In the comments below, let me know what your style is and why it works for you. Thanks for reading!
