Friday! It is a holiday here in Amman, Jordan. I woke up lately and jumped (as usual) from bed to computer 🙂 I refreshed the web page but there was a problem, I made few check-ups to the operating system settings, hardware connection and access point. As usual, it was the Internet service provider problem, ORANGE  > I wonder if anyone can get the help-desk support from the first call or not wasting 30 minutes of his time!

After I had the delicious spicy chicken meal, I checked the Internet and thank Allah, Its working. I checked my Emails especially my favorite from the Personal Branding Blog. click some articles and …

Personal Branding Blog

I was named as one of the 60 Personal Branding Experts on Twitter.  I wasn’t on Twitter before 1 year and I didn’t grasp the personal branding  concept before 2 years but only my passion drove me to be on that list.

I believe in what George Foreman said “The biggest challenge in anyone’s life in making yourself a success is understanding that you are at the bottom. The toughest step is to say “I’m at the bottom and I got to go up.”

I’m humbled and honored for this achievement which will inspire me to spread the branding message.

Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read 140 characters messages known as tweets.

Chat is any kind of informal communication over the Internet using tools such as instant messengers.

“A brand is a name or trademark connected with a product or producer. Brands have become increasingly important components of culture and the economy, now being described as “cultural accessories and personal philosophies.” Wikipedia

Now, Is it possible to use Twitter to Chat about Brands and Personal Branding?

Yes, that becomes possible with the idea that Maria Duron and David Sandusky came with. They created the @BrandChat on Twitter and inviting all branding followers for live chat on Twitter every Wednesday.

#BrandChat

Also, there is a Facebook fan page to interact with members for questions suggestions, recaps of the brand chat and brand resources.

Here is part of the brand chat for October 7, 2009.

Is a personal brand earned or created? And, extending that is a biz brand … earned or created? Let’s discuss!

pmarckworth: @GetResults I agree. A personal brand is based on making and keeping a clear promise.

neilmckenzphoto: Q1: Personal brand – you create it by earning it. If you just create it then it is just a mask.

lisakribs: Q1: Personal Brand – neither created or earned, you are what you are. Any other representation is deception.

paulcopcutt: @mariaduron personal brand evolves, message & communication is created, reputation and value is earned.

Mikimel: A personal brand is both earned and created, just like any product’s package – one cannot exist without the other.

jemcgrew: Q1: I see personal branding as marketing yourself … one of my professors used to say the most important thing you market is U.

HuebnerPetersen: Q1: Branding is storytelling – in bot biz & personal realms. You create your story and the work to live up to it (earn it).

BrandMyCareer: @lizisaacslwc But my personal brand created by earning followers, fans and readers for my blog, right? #brandchat

lizisaacslwc: @DrFernKazlow there are several misconceptions about PB – we often don’t believe we’re powerful beyond measure.

strategystew: Q1 I think the real challenge is creating a brand of any kind is not being clear on who you are and what you are promising.

Today, I Interviewed Margaret Meloni, Margaret is a project Margaret  Melonimanagement guru and the founder of Meloni Coaching Solutions, Inc. In her more than 18 years in corporate America which included roles in Fortune 500 management, Margaret Meloni observed how individuals who learned to cope with conflict succeeded and recognized their full potential, while others became road blocked.

You can connect with her via @Facebook @Twitter @LinkedIn

Here is part 1 of the brand conversation.
.
Mohammed: There are millions of projects and thousands of thousands project managers, How can one project manager be remembered and chosen from many project managers to manage $1B project? What personal brand attributes he/she needs to be unique?
.
Margaret: It is true there are many project managers. But each of us brings our own unique perspective and way of being to the table. For example, there are project managers you call to rescue troubled projects; there are project managers you call when the team needs a leader who is more people oriented and sometimes we need a leader who has a more militaristic style. When I meet you and you tell me you are an IT project manager, that is just part of the mix. You are more than just a job description. So I urge each of you to get in touch with your own inner brand, the part of you that separates you from the pack. Your inner brand translates to what you want people to see in you and what you want to hear people say about you. It all starts by you being clear about your character.

In today’s tied market, you need to stand out showing your brand attributes. We are so lucky to live in the social media revolution that let our brand heard at five continents. I’m sharing personal branding quick tips to help you get more followers whether on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.

1 – Set your home page to your favorite search Google Me!engine

Whether you are using Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. there is a place to set home page for your Internet browser, set that to ex: Google.com

Now, each time you start your Internet day, you will start with Google search, I suggest that you Google your name everyday and see if your name topped the results, not only your name topped but try to keep the first 10 results of Goggling your name relevant to your personal profession. Let that results inspire you and  to Forget the Business Card. Just Google me.

2 – Use the power of hashtags

# Hashtags are essentially a simple way to catalog and connect tweets about a specific topic. They make it easier for users to find additional tweets on a particular subject, while filtering out the incidental tweets that may just coincidentally contain the same keyword.

Once you’ve figured out the tag itself, the next step is simple: start using it and promoting it. Make sure your tweets using the hashtag are worthwhile and add something of value to the conversation. Promote your tag or the social media campaign that uses the tag via other social media channels, such as your blog or email newsletter. Tweet out calls to action explaining your new tag at regular intervals (but don’t overdo it!). For example, let’s say you own a bookstore, and you’re running a Twitter contest to give out a gift card to your store. Your explanatory tweet might be something like, “What’s your favorite summer reading material? Tweet using #beachreads to win a $100 gift certificate to Al’s World of Books!” # From Mashable.com
