This Week in PCM: Someone Is Always Watching

Someone is always watching. Always. Regardless of what you do. Today I watch my book marketing agent LaTanyha Boyd do a Facebook Live where she complements me on my branding. This takes me by surprise because 1) I have very bad tunnel vision and 2) I have never seen her on any of my Earned Value Management Explained broadcasts. Her compliments get me thinking that people are always watching you no matter how much you think they aren’t. They also reinforce HOW I show up. I show up with a coherent message, signature look and a standard setting. These are three things that will set you a part from everyone else in the video marketing and livestreaming realm.

Have a coherent message

Don’t get on camera and start ramblingly incoherently. I know that sounds simple but you would be amazed at how many people are out there doing just that on video. Although livestream is still in its infancy, you can still present a coherent message by writing down an outline or some talking points. Remember, livestream be it Twitter Live, Periscope, Instagram Live, Facebook Live or YouTube Live, are video branding channels. If you show up rambling, speaking incoherently that’s how others will view your brand.

Have a signature look

This is a must for these reasons: 1) it makes you memorable and 2) dressing is nonverbal communication. Most people don’t  see dressing as nonverbal communication but how you dress communicates to people a whole lot of things. That’s why I wear a black top to all of my livestream videos. Black is a professional color and it is easy to repurpose. Many people on Periscope and Facebook Live repurpose their broadcasts onto YouTube. It is easier to repurpose a black top onto YouTube than numerous broadcasts with you wearing many different colors.

Black is my brand color. Color is very important for personal branding (yes, you ARE a personal brand!). Having a signature look with a specific brand color convey organization. The viewer knows that he or she is watching someone who is pulled together. Remember, as I have stated before: your dress is a form of nonverbal communication. Having a signature look communicates to the audience that you are a real professional.

Have a standard background

I have one place where I do all of my broadcasts. It is comfortable, well-lit and creates a positive customer experience. What goes on in the background is just as important as what goes on in the foreground. Shooting from one place gives the audience a specific kind of experience. Whether it’s your bedroom, home office, corporate office, cubicle or park bench, having a standard background projects stability and consistency with the viewer. If you or the people in your background are all over the place, then your audience will think the same.

Here are my three tips to make sure that you present a positive video image and message. Remember, whether you know or not, someone is always watching. To work with Phenomena Corporation, visit us at www.carlarjenkins.com/work and info@carlarjenkins.com

This Week in PCM : The Importance of Saying Thank You

I have done this video in response to an Instagram post. Someone asked when was the last time that you mailed a handwritten thank you card. I replied today because my banker scheduled a meeting with me and answered all of my questions. Moreover, I mailed thank you cards for all of my eBay purchases. Whenever someone took time out to meet you in person or patronized your store it was important to acknowledge that with a thank you. In this increasingly Internet of Things world, we cannot lost touch of face-to-face interaction and a handwritten thank you card. These cards went a long way.

PositivityChange Post : Issue 23 : Learning, Growing and Earning

Happy Monday everyone! The PositivityChange.com newsletter is back with an all-new name (PositivityChange.com Post) and another lesson on manifesting positive change in your personal and professional lives. This is a very different newsletter because I have learned something over the past week because a lot of things have happened that I want to share with you! As this Post’s title says, it is all about learning, growing and earning.

 

Learning

I have also done a PositivityChange Facebook Live about what I have learned from my first 71 Blogtalkradio episodes (Combining my 23 Project Management Minute podcasts and I have done 94 episodes’ worth of content). It is amazing how many things podcasting have taught me about content creation and time management.

Growing

When you learn, you grow and on last Thursday’s Positive Change Radio, I discussed how you can stay positive during growing pains. Remember, growing pains represent your new normal. You are outgrowing your current life and need to acquire some new skills in order to be your best. Sometimes growing pains can be a sad process because it means shredding the familiar people and comfort zone you’ve come accustomed to; but, when you grow, you cannot EVER return to your past life.

Earning

Last week I had found an error that has (positively) impacted my ability to earn. I switched online store platforms 3 months ago and wondered about below average sales. I didn’t know what was happening until I debuted my store blog. When I tried republishing it onto Medium, I received an error. What I later learned was that there was a code blocking customers from buying my items. I fixed not only the blog’s code but all of my URL shorteners resulting in a new sale that Thursday night!

Now that everything is right, I have a very announcement to make: my entire https://carlarjenkins.selz.com  store is 10% off using the LOVE10 code! From now until February 28th, you will receive 10% off all purchases. This means that you can buy my Amazon bestselling Expand Your Personal Brand book, workbook, and the bundle.

This Week in PCM : What Are You Putting Up With?

I have been participating in a business mastermind as of lately. The mastermind requires a book. I start reading the first chapter and immediately get hit with a brick from its title: ‘what are you putting up with?’ This title stops me cold because I completely understand it. I have experienced a lot of growing pains due to my refusing to put up with things. That title has hit me so hard that I have gone to the Facebook group to do a video.

PositivityChange.com is a place where we help you manifest positive change in your personal and professional lives. So I am asking you what are you putting up with now?
