Self-Promotion Through Social Media – Don’t Be A Narcissist

This is a guest post from Cori, is a wildly hire-able freelance ‘ghost’ as well as the creative brains and dubious brawn behind her blog Big Girl Branding.

The first half of the title of this blog post is a shining example of an oxymoron, as in: don’t be a moron.

OK, fine… that was a little mean. I’m generally pretty nice, so don’t take it personally.

Really though, using social media sites (Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn are what springs immediately to mind) as an extension of your “advertising media strong-arm” is one of the worst possible things you can do for your career or business.

And I say that in the nicest possible way.

Does that mean you can’t use social media to market a business? Of course not, I do it all the time. But you have to play by the rules otherwise you’ll get snubbed!
