Sharpen up Your Social Media

Don’t tell us you haven’t done this yet. Social media is not about lying to others about your lifestyle. But, they can be a great means to make yourself appear the best you possibly can. Today, you have dozens of social media platforms.

You can start with Facebook and Instagram, and end it on LinkedIn and Tinder. When creating your online presence it needs to be in line across all platforms. Make yourself appear in the best light. It doesn’t matter if all of your platforms are private, some data is still accessible to a broader audience. Sharpen it all up. Sometimes, you won’t have a second chance at a first impression.

Be Professional

You’ve noticed that we’ve put together the lines of FB and Instagram together with LinkedIn. One is not like the others. The latter is a professional network, intended for pursuing your business goals. Yet, it is equally if not more important than your other social media platforms.

While you can let your Instagram and Facebook remain dormant concerning regular posting, you’re not allowed to do the same with your LinkedIn. It is your professional online persona, and it needs to remain up to date. Do not skip on updating your profile on this social media platform. It could backfire on you. Be professional and never neglect your LinkedIn.

Don’t Back Down on Video Content

It is important to have a video presence online these days. It is even more important not to forget you’re having it. When people do a Google search, some YouTube results will usually be at the top page. So, if you have some video content online you should revisit it. If it doesn’t portray you in a positive light, remove it. If it does make it even better.

Whatever the case might be, you should know that it is not wise to forget about the videos that flow around the internet under your name. They’re quick to be found, and you don’t want them to have a malicious effect on your attempts to have a brilliant first digital impression.

Review and Comments

If you haven’t noticed it, we are living in a world of comments and reviews. Every platform out there has these options. Comments are usually there while reviews come our way in a great fashion through the means of Google reviews of businesses, Facebook Pages, and Yelp among many others.

You need to be aware that your online presence can be reviewed and commented on. Tell us you’re not aware of this.

Now that we’re sure you know it, be aware that you can have both positive and negative comments about yourself online. Whatever you do personally or on the business side ensure that people only have positive things to say about you. If you haven’t been paying attention it is hard to leave a brilliant first digital impression if people have been bashing you online.

Also, you must always maintain a  civilized tone when responding to comments and leaving reviews online.

Work on Published Content

Not all of us can be published authors. That’s not an easy task. Receiving a global audience is hard even in the world of quickly attainable fame through TikTok, YouTube, and Instagram. But, it is much easier to get published than ever before.

Your work, tied to your persona or your field of expertise can be easily published on mediums such as LinkedIn and Medium. The best part is that any work you publish will go through Google’s search algorithms and it will be indexed.

What this means is that your work will be remembered by the Internet. If it’s of any value Google will rank it high, and work under your name will be accessible to many who you managed to interest and were touched by the subject you’ve covered. In any case, your name will pop out, so you have to be careful about any published work for better or for worse.

Know Your Audience

Lastly, your digital impression is not for everyone. There is a targeted audience you want to impress and attract. When creating your digital footprint have those people in mind. Create an image that will resonate well with people who you want to meet and greet and make them your audience.

If you don’t have an idea who these people are, you might be firing blanks from the get-go. So, first impressions are important, even in the digital world, but you need to be precise with whom you want to impress.
