Let’s take a moment to recap and celebrate.
So far you’ve covered the first three Digital Style System areas: Digital YOU, Digital Relationship and Digital Wisdom, including:
- creating a digitally savvy mindset and having a Digital Style plan
- being clear on where you audience hangs out and whether you want to grow the number of people you’re connected to online (and how)
- styling your online sites and writing with your audience in mind
- creating your online information system and automation
- developing digital health
Well done for doing a lot in a little time.
Hopefully learning about developing Digital Style has taught you two things:
Firstly, the value of knowing who your audience and who you’re writing to, and
Secondly how to create an online profile that showcases YOU – as closely as you can to who you are in day to day life.
Keep researching places where your audience could be and getting to know their habits online. It’s worth it.
Let’s check in: do you feel like tweaking anything on your LinkedIn or your about.me website? Go do it!
We’re excited to see your progress, learn what’s working for you and provide suggestions if needed. Send us links to your sites:
Next up, we’re developing Digital Speed and Strength. The reason for this is that business is speeding up and there are clever tricks for keeping up to date and building your online strength.
Let’s do this! ⭐️⭐️
#12: Agility & experimentation
Be open to and aware of rapid change. As we receive purchased goods and services even faster than in years gone by, our personal online systems and our way of being as a professional can be fast and agile. What do you need to do to become more agile and open to experiment?
#13: Co-creation & partnerships
Increase digital speed through collaborating and innovating with others and testing your ideas online as they develop. Save time in creating partnerships through building trust with others via your Digital Style. It’s highly useful in creating speed if your target audience can check your credibility anytime of the day or night and like what they see.
#14: Empathy & customer awareness
Encourage others! Always remember to encourage others online. Especially when you’re commenting. Lead with empathy and openness to another’s point of view.
It may save you in the long-term.

Build Online Strength in areas of interest.
#15: Sites & tools
Educate yourself on new sites and tools. Learn their inherent languages via YouTube videos or blogs – find quick ways to learn. Many professionals can theoretically talk about social media sites thought they haven’t yet gotten the nuances from actual use.
Carve out some time each week or month to find experts to teach you about the latest sites and tools – keep up your awareness of what’s coming and what’s useful to you.
Get into it!
#16: Personal data, privacy & security
In all of this activity, you may wish to keep across how your data is being used and read up on latest privacy aspects of your favourite sites and secure your passwords and data to a comfortable degree.
#17: Regular checks
And finally plan how often you wish to review your whole ‘digital footprint’ – your sites, your words, …how you’re looking overall online.
I suggest an annual review and include a Google search to see how you’re looking to others.
