Get better at marketing yourself, your career and your personal brand…

I’ve seen a lot in the social media arena over the last few weeks on marketing oneself. Believe it or not, some of the people I know who are worst at this are marketers!

Marketer or not, I ask you, when was the last time you truly invested time in reflecting on how you market yourself in the industry to which you belong (or are looking to get into?).

1. Do you have a linkedin profile? How up to date is it? For hints and tips why take a look at this useful infographic

2. When did you last do a skills audit or personal development plan and ask yourself which areas are focuses for the upcoming twelve months? Have you asked friends and colleagues to provide feedback that will help with this?

3. When did you last attend a conference, networking event or webinar? For marketers alone there are a shed load to consider including CIM, Marketing Week and the IDM.

4. When did you last look at your cv? Always best to keep it up to date as you go rather than racking your brains when you see a new job opportunity. You can find some great templates here.

I’ve also been following @amazingif who offer 50 great career tips. Very useful.

Dan Schawbel also offers some great personal branding advice.

So, the moral of the story is, don’t wait, crack on with marketing yourself. You are totally worth it and if you don’t, who will??
