Digital Footprint

First things first...

Nothing beats face-to-face... for teaching... selling... building relationships... or any other type of communicating. Speaking directly to someone is the next best thing. Third, is probably a good 'old-fashioned' personalized handwritten letter. After that, your 'best' options become much less clear.

When electronically sending a message, most people still use e-mail... But, if most people are doing still something... it usually means that a newer and better way is already available. There are 'countless' ways to utilize technology to build your network and communicate with others. (Click here for a Top Ten Review.) Which type and how many you use is entirely up to you. However, if you are not taking advantage of something 'beyond' e-mail, you are missing a huge opportunity.

Millions of people around the world already utilize sites like facebook / MySpace / LinkedIn / Plaxo / Blogger / Lulu / Squidoo and others to connect with and deliver their message to others. Before you think that your personal marketing program is complete, ask yourself this question: "What is my Digital Footprint?"
