Build a Better Brand Platform: 30 Day Challenge (Day 17)

17 Sep

I think I will diverge from the MNINB Day 17 challenge, in which Robert “Not Bob” Brewer suggests a #hashtag conversation on Twitter, as a way to engage in an online conversation. I want to recommend instead that you search the groups available on LinkedIn. Then join one (or three)! Participate


Join 3 groups today. Answer a topic question or start a topic of your own.

Writers as a whole tend to be a little bit introverted but be deliberate in coming out of your shell and spending time talking to other professionals involved in writing. It will help you make contacts and may also help you answer that list  of nagging questions that you have always wondered (ex. What is a good freelance rate for an article? What is the best company to work with to self-publish a book?). Depending on your temperament, this might be a harder challenge than previous weeks. Give it a go!

    Have got into the hashtags recently – when I remember! Very bad at the remembering bit, but I’m getting there.
    And it does pull in extra people.
    Also using Tweetdeck, which means you can have columns with the hashtags in that you are following, like #writing, #amwriting#, #writegoal etc.
    Also like #thenewsquiz

      I use #hashtags as well and follow them on hootsuite. More about hootsuite later this month I am sure.

        Hashtags are probably going to be the thing that turns Twitter around for me.
        Is Hootsuite similar to Tweetdeck?

        Yes but also works with Facebook and LinkedIn as well. #hashtags make Twitter much more social.
