It’s time to take small steps and simply become more visible. Because you need to make more people aware of how awesome and talented you are!
Visual content generates conversation and keeps your name in front of your network! Create and share meme, quotes, gifs and more to stay connected with your network!
Here are places to find sharable pictures or create your own!
Do you follow smart accounts on Instagram? If you find a motivational quote you like, you can share it to your story. This is an easy way to share and give credit back to the original poster.
PS: I’m on Instagram.
Pinterest offers great inspiration. There are thousands of boards for Motivation.
When you find a board with quotes you like, go ahead, follow the board. Re-pin the posts to your pinboard (name it appropriately/uniquely) or you can just like it for future reference.
You can even “like” pages on Facebook that specialize in sharing these motivational quotes to get ideas! This makes it easy to find and reshare with your network.
You can easily create your own motivational quotes, using any one of the free tools in this post Build Your Brand by Sharing Content. (Try Canva)
GIFs are also hot! GIFs are those continuous loop videos. They are highly shareable when done correctly. Rather than create your own, consider sharing ones that have already been created. Give credit to the creator or hosting account by tagging them whenever possible! That’s what we call being a good digital citizen!
Share and Showcase ‘Em
Sharing is what it’s all about. Add your quotes to your Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest pages- yes, you can even use them as status updates on LinkedIn if appropriate.
Create the meme, quote or gif and download the file. Then share it on your social media as a status update!
Your connections, friends and followers just may engage with you and this will help you become more visible!
Naming and Brand Recognition
Be sure you include your name in the images you create. It’s more likely you’ll get credit.
Share images that are “on-brand.”
Whatever you share should be relevant to you and your audience (employers). If it isn’t relevant, it should be gosh darn funny or evoke some emotion!
Status Update Frequency and Topics
On Facebook, update your status at least once a day.
On LinkedIn, once a day is the max.
Twitter requires more frequent updates.
And you can mix up the types of updates you share on social media. Follow this strategy and read this article to learn more: Build Your Brand By Sharing Content

I would love to see you take steps to become more visible by showcasing your style and personality! Go ahead, give it a try! Add one quote to your status update each day and see what happens!
