Great post by Ted Coine on exploring the boundaries of propriety when it comes to influencer marketing.   #influencermarketing #nativeads   https://meddle.it/content/8a546f5449e3d5210149ec37c2811815/public
While the watchdog acknowledged the incusion of disclosure statements, such as "Thanks to Oreo for making this video possible", they were still not significant enough.  Mondelez UK was told to ensure that future ads on the platfrom made its commercial intent clear prior to consumer engagement.

“Employee advocacy” means different things to different people. Picking the right technology to take full advantage of your most precious resource (your employees) can be a confusing and daunting task. I don’t blame marketers who’d rather call the whole thing off.   #employeeadvocacy   #socialemployee   #employeeengagement  
"Employee advocacy" solutions mean very different things to different vendors and the companies employing them. Picking the right technology to take full advantage of your most precious resource (your employees) can therefore be a daunting task. Here's how to tell the different solutions apart.

In the age of social media, the most prominent face of a company may no longer be its homepage, or even its social media accounts... #socbiz #socialemployee  #employeebranding

Something for you lawyers and legal marketers to chew on #bdi1  #legal #marketing #law #lawyer #social
Clients don’t hire law firms. They hire lawyers. In the age of social media, what does this mean to your law firm’s marketing strategy? Are you focused on marketing your firm’s practice areas – OR – are you trying to connect the right prospects with the right lawyers?

Well said. As the song says: "Be yourself, everybody else is taken". Personal branding may sound like a 'job' but it doesn't have to be. Just focus on maintaining a consistent image of your true self, rather than who you think people want you to be. Trying to please others by being somebody else is is where most people fail, in my opinion.
Personal branding isn’t just about getting noticed, published, and “known.” This isn’t about being Kim Kardashian at all. It’s about being yourself and managing how people perceive you.
