ARE YOU DIGITALLYDEAD?
9 Simple Actions to Get You Out of the Digitallydead Bubble
Stepping out of my MarTech bubble I discovered there is a large group of experts and creatives who are digitally invisible and it is hard for them to navigate in the digital landscape.
We all live in bubbles and we love it. People around us just understand what we say or do — there is no extra explanation needed. Sometimes we touch other worlds and realize how ignorant we are of others.
I have been submerged in the MarTech and different tech bubbles for ages. Working with software engineers and bringing tech solutions to the market defined my limited circles. I just loved talking about agile, startups, SaaS, IoT, our marketing stack, running experiments, and attending different tech trade shows. You probably couldn’t care less about it.
I Wish I Would Found out About the Impostor Syndrome Sooner
When I started coaching others on how to increase their digital presence I discovered more people with great expertise who were reluctant to show it off.
I was not advocating for myself early in my career. Thought I should stay humble and others will notice me. Unfortunately, that does not work in the digital age, especially if you are looking for a remote job.
I see it every day how great experts get overshadowed online by people with less knowledge but a willingness to self-promote. I learned that all these limitations in our heads have a lot to do with an impostor syndrome when we doubt our skills, talents, or accomplishments. On the other hand, there is a group of people without any self-doubt and depth who proclaim themselves as experts and that may have something to do with Dunning–Kruger effect.
