Alice Osborn spoke today at Triangle Lunch Talks on "Craft a Powerful and Memorable Profile." Some of my biggest take away ideas were: 1) Be creative in your approach. Don't be dull and boring in what you say. 2) Have a Call To Action even in a 150 word profile. 3) Let someone draft your profile and it may come out better. 4) Look at what the younger generation is doing with their profiles and see if you can pick up on anything that may help. 5) Mention any awards, associations, etc. that may help. The key thing that I got here is that the award could be something that is very simple that you can use. It doesn't have to be National recognition. So think about anything that may help in this area no matter how simple you think it is.
This post is part my ongoing personal learning/experimenting and teaching others how to be an on the go photo/video journalist using a cell phone, apps, laptop and desktop. You can use this for your own business on a regular basis. For example, I took the images in this post with my iPhone and used my Camera Awesome App to edit the images which I posted in several places on the web and emailed myself to be able to do even more with the images. I will use multiple resources on the web to point back to this blog post. If you'd like to learn more, please feel free to come hear me speak at Triangle Lunch Talks on Thursday, June 20th. It's FREE! If the date has already slipped by when you read this, please contact me on the web to find out about other upcoming events some of which may be free or paid.
The images below were taken with my iPhone using the Camera Awesome App.
