Intimate Conversation on Relationship on “Between Us” – late night talk show on Radio 938live

Andrew with Michelle, host and presenter from 938live

on 23 May, I had a surprise call from Michelle Martin, the presenter and host of Late Night Talk Show – “Between Us” every Monday from 10-11pm.

This intimate conversational late-night talk show will address a wide range of everyday relationships. Highly interactive, listeners will be able to share their own stories, connect on Facebook, or email the show’s Secret Mailbag.

I was on air to discuss the following:

  • Problem of today’s dating: We look for personality traits when instead we should be looking for character. The key to choosing the right partner is to look for a person with good character, ,not simply good personality.
  • Points of Discussion:

1. What’s the difference between character and personality?
2. What are the areas of personal growth?
3. How do I know if my partner is emotionally open?
4. Is integrity just confined to doing what’s right & proper?
5. How do I know if my partner is mature and responsibility? Any signs?
6. What are the evidence of good self esteem?

Michelle invited me for another week or two from 30 May and 6 Jun.

6 ways to elevate your thought leadership status on social media

Andrew Chow is a Thought Leader on Social Media Strategy, DIY Public Relations and Life Coaching

Thought leader is business jargon for an entity that is recognized for having innovative ideas.

The term was coined in 1994, by Joel Kurtzman, editor-in-chief of the Booz, Allen & Hamilton magazine, Strategy & Business. “Thought leader” was used to designate interview subjects for that magazine who had business ideas that merited attention

How to leverage on social media to elevate youur thought leadership status?

1.      Streamline Your Content. My forte is in Brand Communications, Social Media Strategy, Public Relations, Personal Branding and Creativity. I make sure I choose sites which can position myself best in respective domains. Keywords must be planned carefully to ensure your come on top within your competition. Prepare a posting schedule to avoid over-crowding of information within a short time.

2.      Select Your platforms. Choose platforms for article directories with good page ranking and Alexa. If you have many presentation on different topics of your forte, Slideshare is a great platform. Twitter is a must for anyone with great inspiration to share every time.

3.      Share Your Knowledge. My own experience is the best user-generated content I can put up to enrich accelerated learning among my followers and peers. Knowledge is everywhere, why not present them your own way to establish yourself as a though leader? Conduct quality survey regular to keep abreast of latest trend within your market.

4.      Simplify Your Conversation. Gone are the days where we engage in length and senseless discussion on forums. Use Twitter and learn to comment within 140 characters. We need to think, speak and listen “140″ in social media age. Typically, if you cannot think of saying your Personal Mission Statement in 7 words, you lack a strong personal branding online.

5.      Sell Your Expertise. 80% of our forte would be knowledge and 20% would be our expertise. Make others want your expertise after you have shared your knowledge. Customize the knowledge to their problem with unique solution is always a sure way to sell. Selling your expertise through electronic newsletter is acceptable as long as it happens once every 5 times.

6.      Support Your Community. Be available in as many places as you can initially. You will not know where and who your potential customers will come from. Create a portal of sort to gather them in one place so that you can do targeted customer engagement in the future. A lot of marketers have no problem generating interest, but sustaining interest is another ball game altogether.
