Are you branding yourself in your IM niche...

by Kim Standerline 3 replies
And if so how do you do it.

Do you think it's important to either brand yourself as a person in IM and if not why not

I personally think its important to brand yourself as much as you can

Cheers

    Hi Kim

    I have visions of you tapping away with one hand and sipping sangria with the other! Anyway, I hope you're enjoying your holiday.

    Most of the stuff I've done up until now has been based around the AutoResponse Plus brand. Although I've never hidden behind the name, I set up a company to sell and support it. That was for good business reasons, mainly if I ever got separated from AutoResponse Plus, I didn't want that separation to be a problem for the AutoResponse Plus brand.

    I've recently taken the decision to diversify somewhat and I'm doing that under my own name.

    So I've started doing some 'name' branding by

    - using NeilMorgan.com for my new newsletter

    - calling my new newsletter Neil Morgan's Internet Marketer

    - using Neil_R_Morgan as my Twitter name

    - signing stuff as myself and not 'AutoResponse Plus' something or other

    Just simple stuff really.

    I'm doing it because some of the things I'd like to do in the future with regard to IM revolve around real-live people (yes, they do exist in IM!), and not websites, marketing, software, automation or 'cold' stuff like that.

    Anyway, that's where I'm coming from, for what it's worth!

    Cheers,

    Neil

      lol

      I don't particularly like Sangria to be truthful, my tipple has been beer whilst I've been here (I'm sure Mike the drunken greek would aprove)

      Coming home tomorrow so busy packing, writing my newsletter and dipping into my novel. (who says women can't multitask)

      I think the way you're branding yourself sounds excellent BTW

      Kim

    You should only brand youerself in IM if you have something worth offering. I won't even touch IM niche until i've got enough experience actually making heaps of money through internet marketing.

    What i am doing is branding myself in my own niche, under my own brand name, which i tihnk is good for long term success.
