Just like the song “he’s got the whole world in his hands,” thanks to today’s technology, and you can have the same if you get online by simply starting a blog!
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet by giving you 3 reasons as to why you should get online right now and around one simple concept – by 2010, it is estimated that 90% of the population will be online.
At 55, I am building my own online brand right now and each of my 3 children has their own YouTube channels and domain names so if we can do it anyone can and let’s get to the three reasons:
1. Tell your story to the world
Everyone has a story to tell whether you are at school or the CEO of a high-flying corporation — your story is extremely important to the world whether you realize it or not and it is, by the way, the foundation for the message in building your own personal brand.
Your personal brand is the “backbone” for everything you do and tells the world “who you are.”
Think about your story as a means of sharing your life to the world (within your comfort zone of course) and the fact that it may help or inspire someone else.
2. Be visible
If you use your online presence for no other reason than to put up your C.V/Resume alongside your story, then you will at least be visible to the world 24/7.
If people can find you then they can connect with you and that is where opportunities are found.
3. Stay Marketable
The way we think and work will be disrupted by technology and competition for many jobs will increase.
Getting online gives you the chance to get not only your story out to the world but also the value you bring to others.
You have absolutely nothing to lose by getting online and starting a blog and where you take it is your choice, but in an ever-increasing digital world, you need to build your digital assets and a blog is a very powerful one!
