**SINCE THIS POSTING, I HAVE MAGICALLY LOST 40K FOLLOWERS**
For over the last year, I’ve been building my brand through a Social Media campaign. Since beginning my campaign, I’ve focused on building my twitter following which has grown to over 50,000 people and companies.
Twitter has been more of a professional networking site, such as LinkedIn that assists me in connecting with Celebrity Brands and Executives. As many people, especially youth, don’t have over 10,000 followers on twitter I receive a lot more attention if I tweet a Celebrity because they see that I have a substantial following. They think that I am some type of Celebrity, just not as mainstream and well, not verified.
Long ago, I would use Twitter for venting problems, but I quickly realize that most celebrities don’t want to follow that. They want to follow signs of success, or someone on the road to success.
I now stand out from the crowd.
I can now reply to celebrities tweets, and receive a direct reply.
These celebrities and executives, could in a position to mentor me in building my personal and corporate brand.
Twitter has been that one boost for building my connections. In addition to Twitter, I have:
Over 1,000 likes on Facebook
Over 500 professional connections on LinkedIn
I can only hope that these milestones are just the beginning, and that there is much more growth in the future.
