OK, OK, I wasn’t really a goat herder. At least not in the literal sense. It was just a little fun I had with Linkedin. If you don’t know what Linkedin is, well, neither do a lot of the people who actually use it.
How do I know that? Well, because once in a while I like to test the efficacy of certain operating procedures in my world. This time I wondered about the effectiveness of my notifications on Linkedin, so I made a couple of changes to my profile. I changed my name to Shelley Miller and I ramped up my rather average marketing title to ‘Goat Herder’. I also changed my location to Montana for good measure and then I kept that profile up for two weeks.
Do you know what kind of response I got to all these changes in my life? Nothing. Nada. Not even a blip on any social media radar. Is it me? Do I have to really, really up my game to make it in business social media?
Why not? Apparently I can be anything I want on Linkedin anyway. I’m seriously considering – ‘Fire Hula Hooping Rocket Scientist’, tagline: “We light the fire under your landing pads”!
Maybe it’s better to leave plain marketing as is and return to Memey Vice. Let’s face it, this post has gone to the dogs anyway and maybe even a monkey too, but strangely, no goats…
Have an awesome final August weekend. Cheers!
