Leveraging Social Media to Build Your Personal Brand

On May 20, 2009, in Personal Branding, Social Media Marketing, by Mike D. Merrill (@mikedmerrill)

Monday night I was fortunate to present on Personal Branding at the DFW Social Media Marketing Meetup. Great turnout and hosts Stephanie Inge @stephinge and Sandy Norton @sleenie.

I posted the deck on Slideshare and they have selected it as the Spotlight under “Business & Mgmt” today. 

My goal in this discussion is to suggest you 1) own developing and influencing their own brand, 2) understand that social media is just a tool, and 3) recognize you still need brand tenets to drive results in a community. Hope you find helpful.

I had planned to post the video, but the sound didn’t turnout as I had hoped.

    I appreciate Mike that you say: “social media is just a tool” because I think it is important that people understand that networking rules of engagement still apply within the tool! That is why I like my clients to understand the power of their voice and who they ARE not just what they DO!
