How to promote your panel appearance

We all have seen those posts.

We all have scrolled right past them.

I am talking about the posts where somebody says they were on a panel, and that’s it. No context, no content, nothing.

Just a picture of them sitting on a stage with some other people.

Now, if you post a picture of yourself on a panel, at the very least, please make sure it is framed well and focused on you.

And more importantly, a better way to post that you participated in a panel is to:

– Share who you presented to
– What you said
– Create content about it

This way, you’re engaging your network and starting a dialogue rather than just stating that you were on a panel.

Self-boasting doesn’t lead to anything but resentment from your network. So next time you’re tempted to post a picture of yourself on a panel, remember to add some meat to the bones!
