Promoting Your Organization Versus Promoting Yourself

Promoting Your Organization Versus Promoting Yourself

Social media is a simple and low cost way to help market yourself and your services. As a small one person consulting firm, a basic question is whether you should focus on writing for people interested in your field under a general name, or focus your efforts on your name.

My decision was to do both. I write on social media for city planning, but I also write under my own name, Craig Hullinger






I also do the social marketing work for several organizations:

All of this can get confusing. It helps to use a separate browser

multiple accounts.


Seven P's of Planning - Preliminary Prior Planning Prevents Pitiful Poor Performance



The photo of me is along the California coast.  I broke the tips of both of my index fingers which required me to wear a brace.  We covered up the unsightly brace with baby socks. My wife bought me seven different colors of socks.

We went to China after this photo was taken. I engendered a lot of interest with my baby socks.

I broke my fingers by dropping a heavy window sash across the tips. I was saving money by painting.

The Threat of Islamic Terrorisn

People are very worried about Islamic terrorism.  But it is a very small threat compared to World War II or Communism, as shown on the table below.

That does not mean it is not important or that we should not worry about it and try to prevent it. But the fear and angst that has been generated is far beyond the level of the threat.
