I have a bit of an announcement to make today. For the last month I have been working with a fantastic company as their online community manager and as a contributor towards their social media strategy.
PeopleMaps is a company that provides personality profiling technology through their creation of a Personality Power Widget. In their own words:
PeopleMaps builds Personality Power Widgets to provide psychological profiling (sometimes called personality or psychometric testing) products to businesses and individuals across the globe. We are experts in psychology, technology and marketing and make affordable profiling available to everyone with access to the Internet.
I am so excited to be working with them, not only because they are at the cutting edge of developing innovative personality products, but also because of their Philosophy Manifesto. Who wouldn’t want to work with a company which states:
As a philosophy, we believe that one should alter the environment to suit one’s individual personality, instead of bending the individual out of shape to suit the environment. This could be a work environment, a home environment, a romantic environment; it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that to be productive, to be inspired, to be happy, to be successful, to be at your best, you need to be operating in an environment compatible with your personality. We need the world to relate to us – and communicate with us in a personality centric way.
Pretty cool, hey?
So, what exactly is the service that I’m providing PeopleMaps?
Well, my role as an online community manager means that I am setting up and maintaining Ning communities, so as to facilitate collaboration and co-ordination within the company, as well as managing PeopleMaps’ participation in larger communities such as those found on Twitter and FaceBook. I’m also creating training documents for a number of social networking sites, such as Ning and Twitter, to ensure that all those within the company are comfortable and capable of participating within the PeopleMaps online community, and to that end, I offer ongoing support and advice when needed.
I have also helped to develop the social media strategy for PeopleMaps, and I will be helping to deliver that strategy over the coming months. This will mean that I (along with others in the company) will be growing, contributing & promoting the PeopleMaps twitter account, @peoplemaps, and the PeopleMaps FaceBook fanpage.
If you are unfamiliar with PeopleMaps, then I thoroughly recommend that you check out their brand spanking new website. It’s got some fantastic content on it already, and they have just launched a private beta of their Power Widget. Also, if you’re looking for some free fun stuff, check out the PeopleMaps Playground!
