Comments17/02/2017 #25 Wayne Yoshida@Juan Imaz - excellent article on personal branding and the beBee affinity networking concept. I'd like to add how powerful one's brand can become if personal interests intersect with professional interests.
For example, in my current job as technical writer for a natural gas fuel systems company, I am always working with "automotive technology" and "mechanics" which are also personal passions of mine.
I am also very involved in electronics and radio (RF) technology and have enjoyed my career in those industries.
And finally, I enjoy teaching and helping others, so I am involved with educational plus hobby activities such as Maker Faire. I am blessed with actually enjoying my work and loving my job.13/02/2017 #10 David B. GrinbergThank you, Juan, for sharing your exemplary insights and advice about the importance of personal branding and how to enhance one's personal brand in today's ubiquitous mobile, digital and virtual information age. This is most helpful, as always, and I've shared in three hives: "Social Marketing Solutions" and "Social Media Marketing" and "Personal Branding."
Again, your brilliant buzz is most appreciated, Juan!13/02/2017 #5 Deb 🐝 Helfrich"Your personal online presence is key to success" It is as simple as that. And the more you participate in social media as a whole person, showcasing who you are right alongside what you do, the more likely you are to run into the sorts of opportunities that will bring joy and fulfillment into your life.

Comments08/02/2017 #39 Wayne YoshidaThanks @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian -- there are several great points -- especially the parts about controlling/being in control of your brand/reputation and the time/timing thing.
@Greg Johnson and I talk about this branding concept at our career workshops - so it's good to see others explaining it in different applications.07/02/2017 #38 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#37 Let's let sleeping dogs lie, shall we? The Phil vs. Robert vs Phil thing goes waaaaaaaay back.
I don't know how it started or why. And, I don't care. We have a bunch of strong personalities here. Some friction is unavoidable.
It's time to bury the hatchet, preferably not in each other's skulls.07/02/2017 #37 Jim MurrayI'm not sure but I think Robert Bacal takes a great deal of sadistic pleasure from attacking @Phil Friedman. This is pretty awful when you think about it, especially when you consider that is most of what hr does here on beBee. How the hell is that contributing to this site other than creating unnecessary friction? So you might say his personal brand is Phil Friedman assassin. Not something I would want to be. Not something anyone should be. It's just plain sad.07/02/2017 #35 Gerald HechtWhoa! Okay ...and you can also kind of drive them away from where you don't want them to go (based on the likely characteristics of the "guy").
I have to admit that this is an interesting effect...but it still "feels" like an effect; it's getting "smoother"...I'm guessing the most seamless deployments have, as a major variable, a pre-existing "guy authenticity"...the other thing, of course is that the world has to actually want the "guy"...because if not --the brand will default to "the guy nobody likes guy" --
There is a lot to think about here --this a very powerful "thingie".07/02/2017 #31 Praveen Raj GullepalliFantastic buzz dear Pablo! A great resource in itself in many ways.Building a personal brand or profile (as Rob-not-Bob puts it ;)...is for those who want to be noticed, acknowledged and contacted for what they bring to the table, in terms of their shared knowledge, responses and interactions, services on hire/offer, basis their capability and experience. This is a better way of connecting with relevance and becoming known to those who can relate. With those who matter (potential customers, employers, peers, partners, affiliates and so on). Both Individuals and firms/corporations can build their 'personal profile/ company brand' on a platform like beBee. I believe the word ''Personal'' denotes the individual self or the company identity/brand, respectively.07/02/2017 #28 Phil Friedman#21 my apologies, Paul.. As you well know, I try to make it a policy not reply or engage at all with the person involved. Unfortunately, I am human and occasionallly the constant personal attacks,, the purpose of which is transparent, get on my nerves. And although I should know better, I fall off the wagon and respond.
My apologies, as well, to @Robert Cormack, for any confusion. I should not have assumed that the initial member reference included in my comment was sufficient to make it clear to which comment I was replying.. I will try as well not to make that mistake again. Cheers!06/02/2017 #24 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanGood read, Paul. I believe one must build their personal brand before someone else builds it for them. Whatever the popular term is for reputation, persona, etc., one must ensure it works in their best interest. I mean ass-plunker would not be in one's best interest as part of their personal brand, IMHO :)06/02/2017 #21 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianC'mon guys, play nice First off, @Robert Cormack, I don't think you were the "Robert" @Phil Friedman addressed. That would likely be @Robert Bacal
Phil and Robert B. . . Much as I like you both, I would appreciate it if you guys would take your perpetual argument elsewhere. It's particularly ironic on a post about personal branding.
Thank you for your cooperation06/02/2017 #20 Robert Bacal#17 Phil, ONE percent, you say. And here's what I say:
1) You pulled that number out of your....ummm. thin air. Numbers means something. To some people. I challenge you to back up that quantative number with a reference or two (as you often ask others). Less than one percent? Or maybe 2 percent? Or 10 percent? Or are you trying to sound authoritative by using a specific number.
2) The fact that people misuse a term does not change the meaning of the term. That's the Trumpist, Alice in wonderland approach.
3) You belabor this point about curation because it's simply one of the pet peeves you have. As is the case with various things you hate. And since you have a position, you then make up numbers to support it. How is riding dead horses working out for you?

Comments07/02/2017 #18 debasish majumderi guess, personal contributions with rich values and pertinent appeals are most significant in an affinity based platform, where the platform will become a 'Brand' of distinction. so the potentialities and sincere endeavor with rich constituents are essentially to enrich a brand's value. there only lies the gravity of a person. apart from affinity and associating skill, a brand cannot be popular. so personal brand, i guess is relevant, moment the person is having the capacity to contribute or share his skill to usher majority, and thus the platform on which he or she is sharing makes the platform a unique 'brand'. however, lovely insight @Javier 🐝 beBee! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.26/01/2017 #6 David B.

Happy New Year to you Javier and to all the beBee teams!! Wishing you all continued success!!22/12/2016 #49 Wayne YoshidaExcellent lesson, @Javier 🐝 beBee. I like Tip 8 about sharing knowledge since it not only demonstrates expertise, it makes you think about things in different ways, as students learn and then question what you are teaching. Makes the teacher think. And, the best thing that can happen: When the student learns and questions enough to become a teacher.22/12/2016 #48 Max🐝 J. Carter#45 It's funny you bring up Starbucks, a few years ago a study showed that when a starbucks popped up all the mom and pop coffee places saw an increase in business as a result.
They are more expensive where the smaller place are cheaper.
Twist that around for Walmart and every where Walmart goes in the mom and pop places take a big hit because Walmart is cheaper.
One of the reasons that beBee will flourish is because it is free to the user. It offers a place to fill the need for acceptance where you don't have to join a special club or be excluded from any part of what beBee offers due to cash.
It's the including aspect of beBee that will have this site see continued growth for long time.22/12/2016 #47 Aleta Curry#46 No arguments on that one. Do you know, @Javier 🐝 beBee, that despite people going on and on about of what paramount importance logos are, I never knew they had a mermaid until I read it in an article not too long ago? I must be the least visual, most advertising-resistant person on the planet. I'm a Madson Avenue nightmare!22/12/2016 #45 Aleta Curry#25 Interesting juxtaposition, Max🐝 J. Carter, mega social media sites and shopping malls.
I don't think the personal website (and I include small to medium business sites) will be totally killed off, however. Recall that there was a backlash against chain stores running little shops out of business, with people making a conscious effort to eschew the chains and patronise the Mom-and-Pop shop. I visit the mall when I must, not merely when I can.
Despite the proliferation of fast food chains, independent restaurants are still flourishing.
And chains haven't killed off cafes by a long shot. Starbucks coffee is comparatively expensive, delivered in paper cups, and it sucks. And we love cafe culture: we appreciate the quiet, the personal service and homemade goodies. And also Starbucks coffee sucks. And mediocre sandwiches cost a couple of hundred dollars. And besides that, their coffee sucks.
I do think that we're going to see a shift in how personal sites are used; it's already happening. As Deb 🐝 Helfrich says, her site is minimalist and contains specific information. My experience is similar: if someone wants to know the when where and why of my next event, they're not going to track me down on beBee, no, they're going to type [name of fair] into the Google box and be taken to the dedicated website. Ditto when they want specific antiques information.
An older person is going to turn to the classifieds in the newspaper or an antiques magazine. (Or, believe it or not, look me up in the Yellow Pages. It still happens.)
Yet, mega sites-cum-publishing platforms will increasingly be the place I choose to publish all types of essay, because for the foreseeable future, that's where I get the highest dissemination of works proving my expertise and genius. ( Go beBee: rah, rah, RAH!)
Okay, you're right, I don't know what my point is either. I'm just making observations.
And have I mentioned that Starbucks coffee sucks?

I suggest you put a tickler in your calendar and reshare early in the New Year when folks are through the holiday season. I am bookmarking this as I prepare my own marketing materials for my little enterprise.
I do want to highlight that I wholeheartedly believe in what @Mohammed Sultan has said below in comment #2
"Don't consider the job search as an opportunity to show the merits of your past "core skills" but as an opportunity to to show them why you consider this job opportunity the next logical step of your career advancement"
Part of why the current job search process is broken is too much focus on the past - it is important, but we currently do not focus enough in interviews on taking about the future - how we would go about aspects and tasks in this potential future job. It would be so much easier to evaluate the best candidate if the hiring manager asked them all a small set of pertinent questions pertaining to what they would do to accomplish 4 upcoming deliverables that they would be required to work on in the first year on the job. Same questions, evaluate the candidate based on how they think about the upcoming work.17/12/2016 #2 Mohammed SultanWhat makes the job search difficult is that you are the product and the sales person.You not only need to hit the boundaries of the current HR selection criteria ,but also hit their imagination.In order to be able to stick in the hiring managers mind you should think of positioning your personal brand as a brand with feeling and passion.Don't consider the job search as an opportunity to show the merits of your past "core skills" but as an opportunity to to show them why you consider this job opportunity the next logical step of your career advancement,and also away to conceive the new role for the future and in different boundaries.To differentiate your personal brand ,get away of showing your past "core skills" and experience by showing your "core interests",the synergy of objectives that might exist,and above all your passion .Instilling the value of market research in the search process will enrich the value of your personal brand and keep it out of the reach of other job candidates.Thanks @Janna for your advice which will make the search process a paradise,as titled by the meaning of your name Janna in Arabic.

Comments15/12/2016 #25 Sushmita Thakare JainGreat Post Ian Moyse! Personal Branding is one of my favorites. 'Having an online brand is not about necessarily having your name in lights (pun above) or being known or famous, it is the public view you give of yourself to others .' So true!
Thanks for sharing, will share it ahead.13/12/2016 #19 CityVP 🐝 ManjitFirst of all, a big hearty welcome to you Ian. In the past I have followed your Twitter account because of your background in Cloud but it is good to see you express views in the area of social selling.
The first time I encountered social selling was when I was a part of the Fast Company discussion group and 16 years ago, the chief discussion was the feature on "Brand You" from Tom Peters https://www.fastcompany.com/28905/brand-called-you
At the time social networking was not in the form it is today, but we still had an online profile as a part of discussion groups or in the form of whatever blogs we chose to write. I remember my immediate reaction was the association Tom Peter's article had with FMCG goods i.e. it made me feel like a product.
It is not until the arrival of Facebook that I actually did feel like I was product, in this case a product for Facebook to make its money, my personal information would be what this marketer would be trading on and so I became a refusenik.
I'm still a cell-phone refusenik having joined Facebook due to my Toastmasters club presence there, but my cell-phone refusenik stance will likely end next year also. So I can understand the term "social selling" in this context, that this form of branding is now so common place, it simply goes with the territory. As Bob Dylan said "The Times are Changin" - which I will write up as a buzz.13/12/2016 #17 Michele Williams"Personal brand management, Social selling and experience in how to leverage these is going to continue to become increasingly important and as a differentiator to you personally.

Around beBee, there is a variety, richness, and ultimately a deepness of engagement that comes about in sharing around the things in life that we are interested in and that bring us joy. Many, many people make fulfilling livelihoods in the food and beverage industry and every single one of us partake of food a few times a day, just to shift the perspective a tiny bit.
