We all know that branding is important for a business, but it is also important for individuals in the Social Web.
When you create a presence in the Social Web, you are, in essence, branding yourself. Here are some tips that can help you do so consistently:
- Use similar bios in all your profiles: You may want to tweak them to fit specific sites, but they should still be consistent in tone and content.
- Use only a couple profile pictures throughout your entire presence: Part of good branding is consumer recognition.
- Keep your tone consistent: This comes with knowing your audience and writing consistently for them – everywhere.
- Maintain a consistent name across all platforms: This will also help with search optimization.
