Private Brands are the subject of this site and I rarely if ever expand that to mean more than retailer owned brands, but occasionally cool things pop onto my radar that are more personal branding than Private Brand and this is one such thing. Fast Company magazine is searching for 2010’s Most Influential Person Online.
According to the Fast Company website:
We started with a simple question: Who are the most influential people online right now?
That’s what The Influence Project is designed to answer. By participating, you will have your picture appear in the November issue of Fast Company magazine as part of an amazing photo spread. The more influence you demonstrate, the bigger your picture will be.
You may discover that you’re more influential than you think.
Influence is not only about having the most friends or followers. Real influence is about being able to affect the behavior of those you interact with, to get others in your social network to act on a suggestion or recommendation. When you post a link or recommend a site, how many people actually bother to check it out? And what’s the likelihood of those people then forwarding it on? How far does your influence spread?
This is the type of influence we’re looking for. We want to find the most influential person online.
Who knows? It might even be you.
The visual modeling that the site uses is a really cool way to express the reach of your network and your Private Brand.
