The tools of Social Bookmarking

I've been surfing the web with digg and stumbleupon for the last few days and have decided that what is probably the most important is to make my profiles real.

What I mean by that is to actually have legitimate bookmarks and diggs of related content. The reason for this is so that when I find "friends" on the various sites, they can see what I'm up to and choose to follow what I'm doing.

All of this takes time which of course in the internet world of instant gratification just takes patiences.

The key here is to define your market which currently I see as filmmakers as well as people into self discovery. I'll cover more about knowing your market in a later post however I wanted to touch on it since I think building these profiles are important.

Until then
Happy promotion

See the film I'm promoting now for only $3.99 and support my journey. The more success I have, the more I can share!

Absolutely. Be real. Authentic transparency is one of the most important - if not THE most important - things to think about when using social media tools to promote yourself.

It does take quite a lot of time...and you must be patient and steady, but it only grows and grows.

Good luck to you on your journey!!

Thanks for the support Carolina.

As I have taken a slight step back in the self promotion side, I find that the more time I spend trying to find legitimate bookmarks, the more I learn about the topics that I will cover in future postings.
