When we think about promotion, it usually means upward movement to something grander, bigger, stronger, more appealing, luxurious, better. We think of promotion from one job position to another, promotion to a different class, different status. How about self-promotion.
We also use promotion when dealing with increasing the value of something, or trying to create a stronger awareness. People create and promote brands, talent, artists.
It is important to realize that while promotion and the promoting of ourselves or others can be a good thing, sometimes it can be misused. However we should by every means promote a good cause, promote ourselves positively and also help promote other people who are doing great things worth promoting.
Have you helped promote someone other than yourself lately, think about it and do something about it
