In 2020 online engagement instantly became the new normal when professional and personal activities migrated to the cloud overnight as the world went into lockdown. Late adopters, baby boomers, technophobes, millennials, Gen Z, and digital forerunners are now all at the same party.
This space has become very crowded – very quickly! To keep up with this rapidly shifting era of transformation, we need to change the way we think about our online presence and communication protocols. Predictions indicate that we will continue to remain online at a similar level of intensity even when we can balance some of our engagements with old-fashioned face-to-face meetings and social gatherings.
Online branding is no longer simply the domain of sales or marketing savvy individuals or people who know their way around online platforms and technologies better than the average Joe. Anyone with an online footprint can do this. Join us on this journey to create a well-managed, structured presence for yourself, and gain the skills to help it evolve in the direction of your personal goals and preferences.
