Subject: Digital Footprint Analysis
Good afternoon,
It was very nice to talk to you this afternoon. I am glad you are so committed to building your brand, and I am happy to be working with you on it! As I mentioned earlier, we need to start looking into your digital footprint. How you present yourself on the internet can either open or close opportunities for you.
Prior our next meeting, take some time to review your social media profiles and your use of technology. We want to make sure you are presenting your professional identity in a consistent way across platforms. I am attaching some key points and guiding questions to help you with your review. When you are done, send me your analysis in a Microsoft Word document. We will take a look at it during our next meeting.
Let me know if you have any questions,
Priya Dahir
