"Authentic Avatar – inspiring trust with your virtual identity"
by Renne Emiko Brock-Richmond / Zinnia Zauber
-
  • Who are you?
  • Hue are you?
  • What is your mission?
  • What does your avatar tell about you?
  • What is your brand?
"Your avatar is a visual representation of you and your professional reputation. Your avatar must communicate your enthusiasm, openness, and mission to tap those productive, emotional interactions and encourage participation that online communities utilize as a form of personal branding and real influential guidance. Efficiently build credibility by embodying your best self though your Authentic Avatar. Discover how to create an expressive, consistent, and unique appearance and animations that articulates your genuine motivation, fosters confidence, and to differentiate you, your cause, and your business from other avatars."
