You are honored & humbled really?!
,,Lars, that's linkedin - everybody tries to market themselves.."
Yes, i know.
You do it wrong!
,, Lars, but people do like and comment?!"
Even if you may get some likes....
It's not because they love your post...
it's because they also want likes from you!
and maybe they like you as a person.
,, I have never seen it that way.."
so please stop your humble stories about yourself!
Nobody wants to hear how successful and great you are!
,, Lars, what can i do instead?!"
Just ask yourself.
What is really worthful for...
That you can share.
,, But Lars, what happens if i don't find anything?"
Make an educated guess ;-)
,, Lars, are you telling me not to post anymore?"
I am telling you to post less about how great you are...
And instead focus on delivering something that really helps people!
Something that's unique.
Something that's special.
Something that comes from your heart!
"Lars, I don't know if i can really do this. "
So you think everything out there is already fine - Ok then.
But i guess you see a lot that annoys you, right?
"Lars, sure - but i can't write about that?!
As soon as you understand the difference....
between something that really resonates with people and....
just some standard blah blah.
your interaction will rise and you can position yourself
,,but what can i do if a shitstorm hits me?!"
Believe me, chances are pretty low.
and if it really happens, you can be glad....
because if it's because of what you really believe in, you can fight for it!
and finally get interesting and insightful output on your social media activity!
