Try to Avoid Squawking Like a Peacock While Marketing Yourself. It's Annoying.

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner and marketing expert Matt Dubiel takes a walk through a zoo in Chicago and happens upon a peacock trying to get the attention of peahens by squawking and squawking. But it doesn't work. The peacock is just loud and annoying, and people -- not to mention peahens -- steer clear. 

Do you ever stop to think how "loud and annoying" you actually come across in the way you market yourself -- especially on social media? Take a walk with Dubiel and decide for yourself.
