Boastful Self Promotion via Ridiculous Titles

Lions and tigers and ninjas … OH MY!

These social media “title” posts crop up every couple months and they’re equally hilarious/ridiculous each time they pop up. Every day I see another ridiculous “title” and wonder how much time was spent (wasted) on such inanity.

Titles like expert, superhero, rock star, etc. are not only silly, they’re boastful and self-promoting. While I cringe if a colleague or client calls me a guru or an expert, it’s a compliment – based on their perception of my skills and results.

Consider instead, putting that time, energy and creativity into your content, a memorable tagline, fantastic images. Here your creativity benefits and provides bounty. Those titles, well … they just make you look like a buffoon.

    Hello Mallie,

    Thanks for making my day today. 😉

    The other day, I had to explain someone that I did not take the phrase “social media guru” for a compliment. I know they meant well and told them so, but when I explained what social media really is, they understood where I was coming from.

    I guess people need to label themselves to feel validated.

      You’re more than welcome, Cendrine. Sorry for the slow reply. I rarely get comments here and I’m slowly ramping up to curate more.

      Have a great day!
