2) Personal Online Promotion compared to Personal Branding
Personal Online Promotion is different to Personal Branding. Personal Branding is, in essence, your image; how others view you, what you stand for, the quality of the product or service you provide, whether you appear to be a market leader, whether you are professional, reliable, economical, and so on. Personal Online Promotion is really about developing a strategy to control what others see when they search your name online. Although the two areas overlap, POP is focused entirely on establishing your presence online, whereas Personal Branding refers to all aspects of how you are perceived (e.g. through media, advertising, reviews, associates, representatives, affiliates and so on).
3) Personal Online Promotion compared to an Online Resume
An Online Resume is just one of the many ways of promoting yourself online. While an Online Resume can be a useful and informative tool for advertising your key skills, services and experience to potential clients or employers, it is a very static form of communication, offering little to no interactivity with potential contacts, and quickly becomes out of date. In addition, without adequately utilizing Personal Online Promotion to advertise your resume through, for example, your website or social media networks, it is unlikely that potential clients or employers will even see it unless you find them and provide a link directly to the resume.
An Online Resume should be viewed as a document similar to a Press Release or Article - used to advertise your name and the products or services you provide. Combining the 3 key strategies of POP will result in many more links and pathways connecting your name to various articles, press releases, directory entries, blogs and social media accounts and is a much more successful method of driving up the number of results that will be displayed when your name is entered into a search engine.
