    Brand to Personal Branding

    Personal Branding i believe in its early phases was probably exchangeable with identity. Like most things though we take it to the extreme. Cant remember where i read it but the writer stated that, "Never let your marketing over run your engineering". When you brand a product or yourself beyond your own capabilities you have done this. Now i am not referring to the marketing that your astronaut and you get hired and found out, you're not, by NASA.

    No i am referring to that level of branding where the reader is taken to, just short of, a conclusion or understanding. Then they (reader) fill in the blanks. I like the word identity because it is permanently attached to your physical self. We can have similar brands but not similar identities.

    #9 Kewl, @Sara Jacobovici: "I don't need to invest who or what to be critical of"
    For me ... It's my job. i.e. I do it 'professionally' and get paid for it (i.e. other people/companies invest in me). Apparently because I do it pretty well.
    Actually, I tend focus my analytics on the 'what', wherefore' and 'why'. https://jcvtcsblog.wordpress.com/category/socialnet/
    And - gotta admit - I have fun doin' it. Enjoy!

    PS
    The 'who' stuff I generally leave to the amateurs.

    Dear @Sara Jacobovici- I have read many buzzes on beBee on personal branding. I must admit that I refrained from commenting on any of them because branding myself didn't appeal to me. Therefore your buzz touches my heart. Your writing "My challenge is how to communicate my identity to others; individuals, companies or organizations. I do that by appropriately putting a human face on who I am and a profile that includes every aspect of my identity, both personal and professional" therefore appeals to me. I share your point of view. Even if people wish to brand me I don't wish to brand myself. Thank you Sara for venting out what I wanted to say, but never did.

    UI Heads-up for @Javier 🐝 beBee:
    The current timeStamp on my comment reads as [Madrid & Barcelona time] here on my device. Not a deal-breaker, but a little unsettling - especially for a personally-oriented socialNet.

    Excellent UX is more than "just bug reporting", Javier.
    John Vaughan
    28/03/2017 #7 John Vaughan
    #5 I'm fairly agnostic about "where", but also try to husband my time efficiently. It's related and, as we like to say here on beBee, [relevant].

    That's why - imo - 'credibility' and 'trustworthiness' are also essential socialNet attributes. Claiming that "beBee is the only platform that encourage you to use both personal and professional interests through hives" is a little .... uh ... unreliable.

    Then there's the precious - slightly exclusionary - cheesiness of the whole bee-branding metaphor (bees, hives, honey, etc.). But that's another rant.

    And it begs the question: "What is the role of the Drone?"

    #4 Thanks for the comment @John Vaughan. I am not so much into where (that depends on the individual needs and also it's not smart to restrict ourselves) as I am into looking at branding as a marketing concept. I quoted @Javier 🐝 beBee because I identify with what he says. @Jim Murray just posted on branding today as well. Good discussion.

    Nice analysis about the 'personal brand' buzzword+oxymoron, @Sara Jacobovici

    Don't know that beBee is unique as a socialNet. Virtually all of them allow you to pick from - or initiate - a range of affinity-based groups. LinkedIn is avowedly "professional-oriented". BeBee is a little more of a wannaBee in that arena.

    Does the chosen socialNet effectively allow/encourage cross-pollination among the full richness of our interests? No clear winners just yet.

    This buzz is of great relevance to me. I have had no exchange of comments or direct contact with @Netta Virtanen. However; I noticed that she liked few of my buzzes. So, this interview dear @Sara Jacobovici is most welcome for me. Having read the responses of Netta to your question one prime thing caught my mind. In answering 1 and 3 Netta said "creating new memories" and I am passionate about getting things done, new experiences and making memories. Striking is Netta's reference to making and creating new memories. I love this. Netta must be as clear as a crystal ball. I know Netta better now.

    Can I add, "You have no description?" I need a reason to follow. Having no description or a description that is some proverb or quote tells me nothing.

    Also, as much as I'm a big fan of boobs, if your profile picture is all cleavage, I'll assume you're not follow-worthy.

    Same goes for overly political or religious stuff.

    I have found LinkedIn a total bust for B2B business development. These tips sound like they are worth trying.

    "I set out to build relationships with CMOs, high level industry leaders, and key decision makers that influenced purchase decisions."

    "LinkedIn was a GOLDMINE of information! I decided to focus heavily on using LinkedIn tools and invested time using the platform on a daily basis.
    My social selling process is always focused around one-to-one engagements and creating conversations with targeted buyers. "

    "The LinkedIn silver bullet for me is LinkedIn Pulse. Periodically, through my day I monitor certain industry feeds in order to see what content my potential buyers are writing. The number one way to get visible, valuable, and connected on LinkedIn is by sharing your prospect's personal content."

    Definitely posting content and hoping the right people will see it just doesn't work.
