On Sunday, June 30th, we hosted our fourth New York meetup at The Liberty NYC (29 W. 35th Street). Our Business Girl Topic of the Day was on "Social Networking: Balancing Your Business & Personal Life Online." While we don't share what was discussed in detail, as always we will share a few tips:
- Use Discernment – certain personal views shouldn’t be shared online with the world and could have an impact on your professional life.
- Consistency is Key -- Your brand personality says a lot about you. Make sure you keep your tone, word choices, and response time consistent with your audience.
Don’t engage in negative conversation about competitors or leaders in your industry online. If you need to vent, speak with a close friend in confidence.
Balance your self-promotion by promoting and helping others. This will make your followers more receptive to your promotional posts and more likely that they will pass it along.
f you ever get in the position that you feel the need to defend a negative comment or criticism, don’t react right away. Take enough time to remove the venom from your thoughts before responding, if at all. Remember silence is golden and the online trolls will starve.
