  • And more…

Here’s a sample question from our interview with Hugh Briss from Social Identities.

Christian Karasiewicz: When applying branding to social media channels, is this something only reserved for businesses or should individuals be concerned with branding too?

Hugh Briss: It depends on what you mean by individual. People that are using Facebook to share pictures and information with friends, then you don’t need to be concerned with branding. If you are the business, then it doesn’t matter if you’re a one-man company or a thousand man company, it’s still important. I think if you’re an individual, or a sole proprietor, your competition is pretty fierce and you want to look bigger then you really are. You want to give the impression that you’re not someone sitting in a spare bedroom running a business. So it’s pretty important for even that person to make sure that they have a professional logo, they have a professional look, they maintain a professional attitude. They deal with their clients professionally in public. That’s all part of their brand and they want to make sure that they don’t mess it up, because it’s really hard to fix it…
