Build Your Online Brand
Someone once shared a great explanation of marketing and branding:
At school, a boy approached a very pretty girl and said, “I’m a great catch.” …that’s Direct Marketing
At a football game with friends, a buddy approached a very pretty girl and said, “He’s a great catch” …that’s Advertising
At a party, a boy asked for a very pretty girl’s phone number and called her to say, “I’m a great catch” …that’s Telemarketing
On a date, a boy brought flowers, opened the door, walked a very pretty girl home, and reminded her, “I’m a great catch” …that’s Customer Relations
At the school dance, a very pretty girl approached a boy and said, “I’ve heard you’re a great catch” ...that’s BRANDING!
And, when this happens on social sites like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn… that’s Online Branding!
