Today’s Work It Daily Challenge is to write a blog post.
The Internet has given us access to so many things over the past few decades. Whether you’re looking for cute cat videos or up-to-date commentary on a recent event, you can find virtually anything you want.
The Internet also gives you the power to shape your personal brand into anything you want it to be through social media and other websites.
Today, we want you to harness that power and use it to boost your professional brand. Your challenge is to write a blog post using your personal website, a blogging platform, LinkedIn, or something else, and publish it for the world to see.
It’s important to establish yourself as a subject matter expert in your field of expertise. For example, if digital marketing is something you feel you’re an authority on, you could write about digital marketing techniques, strategies, and trends.
That way, when employers or clients search for you online, which is inevitable, you’ll have something for them to find that directly relates to your personal brand and skill sets.
Before you write a blog post, though, here are some tips:
- Determine what you’d like to write about and how it ties back to your brand
- Figure out where you’re going to publish this blog post
- ALWAYS proofread your work, and try to get someone else to read it, too
- Share your blog post on your social networks so people know it’s there
Don’t think you’re a good writer? This is the best way to overcome that challenge. The more you work at it, the better it will be. If you need help, there are plenty of free resources out there that can help you be a better blogger. So, take a few minutes to conduct an online search to find the help you need.
