About a month ago I ran across this great post about using a personal hashtag to promote your portfolio.
It took me some time to start using my new hashtag because I had to think about how I wanted to use it (and what hashtag I wanted to use).
Eventually I settled on #nickleffportfolio which I introduced on my 1000th Tweet on Twitter. So far I’m not too sure if it’s actually driven any views to my portfolio, but it has created a nice trail to let me know how much I’ve Tweeted my portfolio items.
I’ve since been regularly posting some of my portfolio items and blog posts about them using this hashtag.
You can find a nice string of Tweets on Twitter which I’ve also referenced on LinkedIn. I could also reference the hashtag on any other medium and already have a nice library built up of Tweets no matter where on the web the material resides.
Do you think this might spark some curiosity in your work?
How many times have you seen a personal hashtag included in a résumé or on personally branded material? I’m willing to guess not too often.
