Should you say that? Sure you want to post that? Are you sure? A Brand Messaging Strategist Loren Weisman Blog.
Would you stand behind it in a year, ten years or even 20?
Take a breath before you post it, add it or share it.
Social media and online marketing have become very spur of the moment things when it comes to updates, posts, pictures, blogging, videos and so on.
Only one problem: Those posts that go up, in a sense, never come down.
Yeah, you can erase them and take them off your website, this social media site or that page, but there is a footprint and things can be found. And this can haunt your brand messaging and brand messaging strategy in the future.
It’s not about taking the approach that you won’t grow, change, learn or mature, but it is about taking the approaches of
- reputation maintenance
- preventative maintenance
- advanced problem solving
So consider asking yourself both professionally honestly…
Do you really want to say that?…..
…post that, share that or update with that?
Could it have a bad effect if it was seen down the line in 5 years, 10 years, 15 or even 25?
Can you look your self in the mirror and honestly say, I am fine with everything I have posted online. I might grow, change my views in time or become a little mature, but overall, am I ok with what I am putting out there?
If the answer is no: Consider Changing Your Posting Habits.
Think before you post. Think about the personal, professional, career and even privacy effects that could occur.
If you are hesitant with a response to the question, do you really want to say that?
Then, maybe it’s not something the world has to see.
And just as you ask yourself if you should say that, on the opposite end of the spectrum, if someone does not define the deliverables, can you really expect to get them as you envision them?
How can you expect someone to deliver undefined deliverables?
