I shall start off our final assignment with a Vlog post:

I couldn’t agree further that the beauty of #MANG2049 is the freedom to conduct collaborate learning. This is evident from our video as it was created from the effort and skills of individuals with various viewpoints and unique backgrounds.
Crafting online contents
From Topic 4, I had learnt that content marketing is a huge market to tap on and by having first-hand experience on posting my own video online on YouTube, it creates a platform for me to showcase more of the online identity which I wish to portray. As a marketer, it is vital to be creative!
Moving on, I would wish to explore other software such as Sony Vegas and Prezi as it helps to present a more creative side of me to tackle future modules and blogging opportunities. #MANG2049 had encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone and craft interesting online contents.
The interactions between the UK students made me realize the importance of social networking to enhance my digital presence through Blogging and Twitter.
In future, I would continue to take the initiative to communicate with content owners on websites such as Forbes and Inc to build connection with other internet users. They might be interested in my contents such as entrepreneurship, marketing and lifestyle.
Transformation of my social accounts
Facebook was a platform for me to connect with people. However, by leaving my contents online backdated 6 years ago, there is a risk that others might stumble upon contents that isn’t a representative of my current identity. My account is now strictly to connect with friends, acquaintances and interest groups after cleaning up inappropriate contents.

It was merely impossible to scan through the vast amount of tweets and my account is now used as a tool to connect with people for learning purposes and social networking.
Also, as mentioned from my video, I am actively following accounts such as DDB and Nielsen to understand more about their culture and contents to stand a better chance for my upcoming internship interviews. Accounts such as CMi, DMWF updates marketing contents they had posted online and by constantly sharing what I find relevant and useful is another form of learning.
Plans for the future: As my twitter was “reset”, I would follow more accounts relevant in the area of my interest and hopefully, gain followers whom are interested in my contents to build a stronger online identity.

Despite deeming LinkedIn as rather irrelevant, it is still good to showcase my credentials online. I might be able to source for individuals with certain expertise to work on certain projects based on my connections. I had listed down that I am looking for an internship opportunity as well.
Plans for the future: To join groups on LinkedIn and be part of communities related to my particular interest in areas such as Digital Marketing and Entrepreneurship to partake in the various discussions upon acceptance.

Other platforms created from scratch
Purchasing of Domain Name(s)
I had purchase a domain name for Etools Technology and my personal blog. As a traditional B2B firm, Etools is lacking in the area of digital presence and it would be an excellent platform to tap on!
My future plans for the firm would be working with external parties to get a corporate website set up to gain more exposures online from search engines. Hopefully, I would be able to run the website well based on what I had learnt so far.
I would continue to blog about “anything under the sun” in my personal blog and besides being more presentable and gaining exposures, I would consider customizing my email accordingly to my domain name to be achieve a more professional identity in the future. It would bring a form of standardization across my online profile.
Looking back, I am amazed by what I had learnt and managed to achieve in the digital world within less than a month. Personally, it was very satisfying to realize how much I had improved. Once again, a big thank you for the efforts of Dr Lisa, Sarah, Nicholas and #MANG2049 peeps. Let’s keep in touch! 🙂
