Building your best online personality
Whenever you do something online, you leave a footprint of yourself. Whether it was a comment on a Facebook status or a post on your very own blog, or even just being tagged in a selfie. There’s a part of you that exists online that allows anyone interested enough to piece together information about you. And when you’re trying to make a business in the online world, it’s incredibly important that people get the right idea.
There are quite a few tried and tested ways to do that. If you’re not sure about being able to craft the best kind of personality online off of your own back, here’s a handy list to get started with.
Have a Fun and Friendly Website
When someone comes to your proverbial door, they’re going to want to be greeted by something that's easy to navigate through and has a lot of worth for them to dig into. And the best way to make sure this happens is by using a simple layout with buttons that can be simply clicked (and not too many of them, otherwise people lose interest), and snappy information that will draw anyone in. It’s the most user-friendly layout you could go with, and the more jokes you throw in the better!
And going pro is usually best here, as you can be sure you’re going to get a perfect website package all wrapped up by the end of the process. Not to mention an actual coder would be able to make your dream a reality much better than trying to go it alone! So contact a web development company and get your accessible homepage up and running sooner than you ever thought possible.
This way you come across as someone down to earth, someone who likes to include everyone, and someone who isn’t afraid to interact. Being the service people like you need is something that can propel you into quick online notoriety.
Don’t Follow the Crowd
A lot of the time online, people like to talk about and report on the same things. Over and over again we can see the same posts, videos, and articles from all kinds of different websites, and hardly anybody likes to offer an alternative. So it’s time to be that missing link, and make sure you’re helping any potential readers and viewers of yours develop their critical thinking skills.
If you see a think piece floating around, being quoted and cited on every form of social media, try to see the other side of things. Talk about them, put yourself in other people’s shoes, and don’t be afraid to say what you really think about something. Even if you’re just someone who likes a musician or celebrity that everyone else likes to trash talk, be vocal about it! It’s the best way to find people like you who would be interested in what you have to say, and that’s the best way to attract more and more viewers.
This way you come across as someone with their own mind, not afraid to be different, and you can even help to inspire others to be the same way. All in all, be yourself!
It’s easier said than done of course! But it can come to you easier and easier the more and more you post online, discovering what people like about you, and what posts don’t get any comments at all. But to start off, what you have to say needs to be different or interesting enough to make people want to come back to me, and that means you need to impress with what it is you post online. And there are so many ways to do that!
Selfies with interesting makeup looks, interesting stories from party days, honest reviews etc. Chase down leads you’d like to interview and ask questions away from the traditional format: what’s their favorite color? Do they have any funny drinking stories? Whatever it is you’re thinking about doing with your online personality, make sure you’re being as dazzling and genuine as possible.
Are You Ready to Show Off Online?
Not in an obnoxious way sure, but enough to make sure people want to flock to you whenever something new comes out. You want to make sure people want to see what you have to say whenever a celebrity does something different, or you want to make sure people just value the tips you have for cleaning the kitchen! Be consistent with your brand!
