  1. *Instagram and Tumblr for Psychology*
    *Telling stories*

    Our Profession is not about sales: *it’s about a service*, that’s why it’s
    important to make people to know us before knowing our “products”.

    In my freelancer clinician experience I found *people buy me for first*,
    only then they ask me about techniques: #personalbranding comes for first.

    *What’s your story?*
    Everyone has a Life, so everyone has a story to tell.
    As we are Psychologists, we have an office, we have our outposts
    (Associations, etc…), we make projects, we attend at events…
    All of these activities set up our *professional identity* and make us
    unique among thousands of Colleagues: it’s this Identity we want people to
    know.
    This is important for usually people take some time to contact us: it’s not
    a brick and mortar business (my last patient was following my posts for two
    years before contacting me for a therapy).

    *Telling stories*
    Life is a Journey worth to be told…by a story…
    Human beings always used stories to create a sense and a meaning of their
    Lives.
    We are accustomed to listening and telling stories from the childhood.
    Furthermore our mind tends to link different events into a unique flow.

    *Why Instagram + Tumblr?*
    We are visual beings, and a picture worth thousands words.

    – #instagram : it’s visual, easy and funny to use.
    Just a tap to shoot the picture, few taps to add some effect, write a short
    caption, and here you go!
    The good thing is you can cross-post on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr.
    You can geotag your picture to highlight the place you are in.
    It has a very active community too.

    – #tumblr : it’s the natural extension of my *Instagram strategy* .
    I make my Instagram pictures to be reposted to my Tumblr site: the last one
    is my real personal branding site (after my G+ page, of course!!!).

    *How can us Psychologists use this workflow for Personal Branding?*
    Though I started my first Tumblr blog two years ago, and I use Instagram
    from many years, I just started to fix it for Personal Branding purposes:
    http://digipsy.tumblr.com/

    Here some examples.
    Remember: you’re not telling about your products, you’re telling about
    yourself!!!

    – When you start a new channel/project:
    http://digipsy.tumblr.com/post/94667265896/forging-another-weapon-against-cyberbullying
    – To show your outposts:

    http://digipsy.tumblr.com/post/94428726971/kids-at-work-psychologistlife-presso-comune
    – Something more personal (remember to tell about yourself without
    exceeding in self disclosure):
    http://digipsy.tumblr.com/post/64970429576/pizza-time-ps-scommetto-che-non-indovinate-il
    – When you are getting your tools ready:

    http://digipsy.tumblr.com/post/63811620660/invasionidigitali-a-padova-i-tanto-ci
    – Something curious about the place you are working in:
    http://digipsy.tumblr.com/post/62976902445/scenari-cyberpunk-per-arrivare-agli-internetdays
    – Show your commitment to an event or to a topic:
    http://digipsy.tumblr.com/post/62971654451/wake-up-internetdays-ci-aspetta-state-tuned
    – Live blogging from during an event:
