BKC: The Essence of Personal Branding in the Social Media Era

Does personal branding really matter? This is it: whether you are a job seeker or entrepreneur, your personal brand and online presence has immense effect on you. A recent survey by Jobvite stated that more and more recruiters are turning to social media to aid them in their job recruitment, and that an individual’s online presence is one great determinant for securing a job.

“Candidates best watch what they put on their social profiles, as an overwhelming majority of recruiters form negative opinions from posts flaunting drugs, alcohol, and profanity—and 42% of recruiters have apparently reconsidered an applicant (either positively or negatively) based on what a social profile revealed.” ~ Jobvite

The shocking revelations, confirms lots of the point and concerns raised in the book. The simple guide helps readers, to use the Four D’s (4 D’s) and Four P’s (4 P’s) to build their personal brand. Let’s take a quick overview:

DiscoveryPersonal Discovery ~ Purpose.

Development – Working on your talents ~ Preparation.

DesignPlatform building, Career and work life ~ Positioning

DeploymentService and execution ~ Publicity, Promotion

The goal is to build a brand base on authenticity, value creation and service. Here again, according to the bayt.com report, about 9 out of 10 search for people’s profiles online after they have applied for a job or about to meet in person either for business or the activities. It’s proves that personal branding and having an online presence is really important in this age, and that it can either work for or against you. From the report it stated that, “In fact, even something as simple as a photograph could influence decision-makers, with eight in 10 (79.6%) respondents of the belief that their online photo effects how they are perceived.” The crust of the matter is that these polls were not conducted anywhere than East and North Africa. It’s now time to take your personal brand seriously. Don’t be left out.

This is what an international Bestseller had to say concerning the book:

“With the speed of changes in the world today, success has no geographical borders. In this engaging book, Bernard Kelvin Clive shares principles from his own success in Ghana that can inspire and guide readers anywhere in the world. With a gentle and humble spirit, he reminds us that building a name for ourselves is most easily done not by manipulating and pushing but simply by serving others. I highly recommend The No Nonsense Guide to Personal Branding for anyone who has a voice to be heard.” Dan Miller, author of New York Times bestselling 48 Days to the Work You Love.

Remember: It’s time to make your career and brand count. “#SocialMedia can get you the attention you want but not the trust you need. You got to build trust. #PersonalBranding” ~ If you are interested in learning how to position yourself properly online, a copy of the book “The No Nonsense Guide to personal Branding for Career Success”

Your brand matters.

Why I am Attending @BloggingGhana’s #BlogCamp13!

Ghana’s biggest network of Bloggers and Social Media enthusiasts, once more brings to you #BlogCamp13. The social media event and awards day looks promising and rewarding indeed! I was part of #blogcamp12 themed “Voice of a New Generation”.

BloGHa

Blogging Ghana since June 2011, has been a non-profit organization with an executive council working towards the following objectives:

  • Serving as a forum for bloggers in Ghana to network and exchange ideas
  • Building capacity among bloggers in Ghana
  • Accessing new audiences for our blogs through a mutual website (aggregator) and other activities
  • Promoting citizen journalism in Ghana
  • Educating the general public in Ghana on the opportunities of social media

               It’s now time to focus on QUALITY content- yup! This years’ BlogCamp is themed “Content is King”, I met dozens of my followers offline and gained even more at the event last year, also enjoyed sessions led by seasoned sports Journo and tweet freak Gary Al-Smith , Ameyaw Debrah (seasoned Celebrity blogger/ publicist/social media marketer), Nana Yaw Asiedu (Lawyer & Blogger), Nii Aryertey Aryeh (seasoned Citizen Journo & GhanaDecides Team member), Nana Yaw Sarpong (Best Citizen Journalism Blog Nominee, Producer of Writers Project on Citi FM.). I upgraded my knowledge on the use of platforms I have mastered- Blogger, WordPress, Twitter, facebook, Storify, how to grow followers and fans etc. It wasn’t all about getting? I gave back too- assisted many to start a blog and was consulted by other wanna-be-bloggers on how to run the platforms.

IMG_1751

I had fun serving on #VimSquad captained by Gameli Adzaho to mobilize wanna-be-bloggers and social media enthusiasts for the event, the session with #TeamKeteke on G.I.J campus was splendid. Many of the attendees swept goodies home.. shirts, android handsets, and loads more! I look forward to winning a BB from Tigo and BloggingGhana at this years event! I look forward to learning some more, live-tweeting, eating the sumptuous BlogCamp chow – Oh yeah! Taking home my Tigo BlackBerry award. I will be honoured to meet you… “always a pleasure- forget peer pressure…lols!”  Follow me on twitter @ghanabakwamena!

My Paddy – Tigo Or Nothing oo!

I smiled when I got my first SIM card! It was all joy, oh boy – when I landed me an O-two-seven (027) line for 50 pesewas! I remember that faithful day September 24, 2004 was when I got my first nokia handset- I was popular in Salemsco  not just because I owned what all called the “GOMOA BANCHI” or GOMOA-TEL but because all my friends and loved ones could reach me and feel the clarity of my calls! It was no surprise I had joined a family trusted brand- It was BUZZ then, I wasn’t so sure about TIGO until it happened! Their cool logo with blue background and smiling Tigo in white meant they were in for not money alone but meet the communication needs of their clients and prospective ones. We have come a long way I must say GSM—MOBITEL —BUZZ — then advancement to Tigo. My faithfulness has brought many aboard Tigo too. In fact, thanks to Tigo I found true love and till this moment – my heart and I express ourselves!

Tigo-logo

What is the essence of feeling free, going everywhere, having all the power and not being able to express yourself to friends, family, business partners and loved ones? Sad right?  I believe in giving back to Society – what the big folks call “Corporate Social Responsibility” – Tigo is on point, they have put a smile on Ghana’s face too! FREE NIGHT CALLS, UNLIMITED SMS, LOW TARRIFS, need I say more? Thanks to Tigo getting and transfer of money has become “koko kwraa” with tiGO cash!

Free-Bonto-Press-19-Feb-13-212x300

That smile on your face bears witness too…  Internet connection speed with their modem? Herh, you can’t be missing out oo- sometimes I wonder why all these great services are easy on our pockets!  tiGO truly cares- with them, “it ain’t all about the money!”.  You know how passionate I am about relevant information dissemination especially through social media, I am glad they got Blogging Ghana’s back like a spinal cord- join sponsors to make this years’ #BlogCamp13 happen. If “Content is King” you gotta know how to “Express yourself”-  come learn for FREE, yes FREE just register here!

That reminds me – have you heard about tiGO’s FREEEE BONTO package? These are few of the many reasons why I recommend Tigo to my Paddies! Get aboard and Express yourself too! Onaaa po! I smile cos I got tiGO, k3 VIM!

Meet @Macjordan, Ghana’s First Internet Freedom Fellow!

The Internet Freedom Fellows program brings human rights activists from across the globe to Geneva, Washington, and Silicon Valley to meet with fellow activists, U.S. and international government leaders, and members of civil society and the private sector engaged in technology and human rights. A key goal of the program is to share experiences and lessons learned on the importance of a free Internet to the promotion of freedom of expression and freedom of assembly as fundamental human rights. Launched in 2011, the program is run by the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in Geneva.

MacJ

Mac-Jordan Degadjor is one of Ghana’s most skilled social media advocates. An executive of Blogging Ghana, Mac-Jordan promotes the freedom of expression through blogs and social media both on and off-line. He together with other forward-leaning Ghanaians have organized 18 BarCamps across Ghana since 2009 inspiring youth to get on-line where ever and however they can, making sure they have Ghanaian peers available to walk them through tech challenges.

We congratulate Mr. Degadjor and appreciate his participation in the West African Cybersecurity and Cybercrime Workshop #CyberSecWA Internet Freedom panel held in Ghana January 29 – 31, 2013.
