FEELS GOOD TO BE(e) on beBee - by Devesh Bhatt
Last year I was introduced to https://www.bebee.com by Jim Murray. What I still remember from his message was this “ Bebee has been pretty amazing experience for me so far. And a number of people I was close to on Linkedin, who have also moved to Bebee, echo my sentiments.”
I thought, he is a writer, good for him. I am not a writer, my article writing, as it is now, is generally incoherent and confusing and my love for poetry is a distraction. I have to focus on professional networking on Linkedin and try for a breakthrough.
I did get breakthroughs, but social media still looked alien and there were many unnecessary frustrations.
A few months back, I registered on Bebee. Now I echo the same sentiment, Bebee is amazing.
I could go about explaining Bebee, affinity based networking, personal branding and the many such catch phrases that have become synonymous with Bebee. But I won’t.
It is best to experience it.
Instead I would straight away talk about benefits.
1. I GOT WORK IN REMARKABLE WAYS BASED ON AFFINITY i.e. SHARED INTERESTS:
a. Strategy, Project Planning, and quantitative analysis work through Poetry and abstract articles.
b. Branding, content and marketing work through qualitative and quantitative analysis.
2. I AM GETTING REGULAR WORK VIA DIVERSIFIED SERVICES AND RECOGNITION:
a. I have diversified into Branding, Marketing and content writing. More services to offer, means more leads and more work. I improved myself to a useful level in these domains just by reading quality content and socializing on Bebee.
b. It feels good to be recognized for something I already enjoy, promoting Bebee. I am a Bebee Brand Ambassador now; the title has certainly helped me in securing Branding and Training Work here in India.
3. I AM GETTING VISIBILITY:
a. Any content on my blog that is well received by the audience gets promoted by Bebee across their various twitter handles. I am twitter active now.
b. Additionally Bebee Brand Ambassadors are very pro-active in promoting my content across social media. Again, I have generated substantial leads, based on affinity.
c. Furthermore, there is a progressive collective effort by Bebee users to promote each other, including me.
1. QUALITY CONTENT AND USEFUL LEARNING:
a. Bebee is full of great writers and the audience on Bebee is brimming with fresh perspectives. Suddenly I am aware, inquisitive and keenly interested in a lot of professionally relevant things, especially the details of online marketing, branding, emotional intelligence and content development.
b. I have learnt something about personal branding; it is time to be brave. I present my competence and sincerity simultaneously. I do not submit to the watered down approach of saying “I can do the job” followed by “I am a good person”. If you have negotiated with new clients, you would know what I am talking about.
2. A PROGRESSIVE EXPERIENCE IN BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS:
a. Everybody doesn’t have work for me all the time. It is best to stay connected and share something meaningful. Shared interests are meaningful and I am beginning to see the positive outcomes. In case of Bebee, there exists a strong reciprocity between the management and the users. There is a proactive effort to build and sustain relationships.
b. Such relationships do not wait for a work requirement or a formal introduction. They simply emerge and grow into tremendous opportunities. Even if they don’t, I have made great friends and their good professional habits rub off on me.
3. AN INCUBATOR FOR CREATIVITY:
a. I have many in-between ideas that can become creative and innovative solutions. I believe that every thorough professional has such ideas. Some ideas are really close to the heart. For the others, I shared them on Bebee and the inputs have helped me shape them into something useful. Soon enough, I will shape them into something workable. (I must thank Gerald Hecht for this phrase).
b. I write, I interact and I figure out some amazing things. My writing has certainly improved in terms of coherence and it helps in thinking. That’s Bebee for me.
Given the above benefits, I am certain that things will only get better, especially with the upcoming App. Bebee has hinted at some pretty interesting features. Till then, it is best to keep writing and networking.
