Social Media Marketing Tip #10

by golda on September 20, 2010

The Law of Uniqueness

No two snowflakes are alike and there is no one on earth the has the same finger prints as you. So why is it that there are so many people copying one another. I’m not talking about emulating someone’s style. I’m talking about totally forgetting who they are as an individual and trying to be just like someone else. In the world of marketing, no one wants a copycat. Be yourself and allow your personality to shine through.

First let me say, I LOVE the new look to your blog!!! It really goes with your Mompreneur brand!!! Second, your Social Media Marketing tips are FABULOUS!!! I especially enjoyed this one because in our world, we really CAN be ourselves and succeed at that. People are drawn to us when we are real & genuine in our character (trust, people can sense a fake). I think its super important that we embrace & be comfortable with who we are because people can see that. Thanks Golda!

Thank you my blogalicious sista! I am so happy with the new look and feel. As Alicia was speaking last night about creating her videos with her son, I thought of this tip. Trust me, there are other mom’s who will look at that and be able to connect with her because of it. Lesson…keep it real!

Golda! I love this video post, because so often we see people trying to be like what they think a “guru” or successful person sounds like, looks like, talks like, walks like, etc.

A successful person is a person who is comfortable in their own skin, and when we witness such a person; they are attractive to us. When we are not standing in our authentic presence other people sense that, and we come across as fake. Shooting videos actually help us to see ourselves in a true light, and we can then make adjustments and come back to our center. For me, shooting videos has helped me relax into myself more. I love seeing my evolution unfold. One Love!

Monica that was well said and I thank you for that. You cannot hide who you are in front of the camera, unless your a fabulous actress, which is why so many people are uncomfortable. However, if as you say, people can relax and embrace who they are, they’ll find that they will attract the people that they need to attract and everyone else will float on by. Watching your videos, I can definitely see your comfort level increase. Thumbs up girlfriend πŸ™‚

This was one of the hardest things for me in a lot of ways. When I first started writing on my blogs, I was SOOO stuffy and business-savvy 100% of the time. Instead of being my odd sarcastically savvy self, I felt like some pent-up frustrated business owner haha.

I think overtime and by doing massive action, marketers who are copycatting people will start to come out of their shells and expose themselves for who they really are. It just takes time. Of course the more action you do, the less time required to accomplish that.

To the top,

Hi Greg! I enjoy sarcasm in moderation, lol. Anyone starting a blog should understand that it is an extension of them-self, just like keeping a diary. So always be yourself from the very beginning.. Thank you for your comment.

I was just on your blog, you were a fire fighter? Wow. Like you, I’ve had a variety of jobs that have absolutely nothing to do with my degrees, LOL. I’ll be calling you later. Until next time…
