If you chose mostly A’s – Interpersonal Maven
Your skills are strongest when you are face-to-face. You consider yourself to be an introvert and love making friends, building new connections and adding names to your rolodex. You may be missing an opportunity to continue to remind your network that you are around, outside of one-on-one connections. Consider adding a newsletter or social media outreach to your ongoing communications efforts.
If you chose mostly B’s – Digital Darling
You are clever, witty and know the difference between a RT and a ROFL. You are comfortable writing interesting bits of information that are easily digested by those who connect to you. Remember to continue paying attention to those who may not be following you online. They might not share you media savvy or may not have found you yet. Include a link to your social media accounts on your business card.
If you chose mostly C’s – Completely Crafty
You know what you are doing and why you are doing it. You have found a balance between posting all of your news and notes online and working one-on-one with those you know personally. You may find managing personal connections and online content overwhelming but you truck through each day doing the best you can.
If you chose mostly D’s – Fair & Balanced
You are comfortable bouncing between personal conversations and sharing information digitally. Everyone knows who you are and what you stand for. You may be interested in branching out to reach more individuals by mail, newsletter or social media and may not be sure how to get started.
