The Brand of Marcie

9 Jun


For all I’ve been doing the past few years to develop The Write Design Company (TWDC)and Shorty: Your Chicago South Side Resource, there is something I have not been doing, which is definitely more profitable: building the brand of Marcie.

People who know me know I’m a writer and blogger, which is cool. But the spirit of writing needs to ooze from every pore so when I make new connections, they can feel it.  I know that sounds strange, but that’s how I feel.

Lately, I’ve been writing more for TWDC with most topics centering around blogging, live blogging and social media, but I haven’t written much about writing. And that’s what I need to do to build the brand of Marcie.

Here are some things I’m going to do to build my brand.

  1. Write more stories and articles about writing for online and print publications
  2. Write eBooks on writing
  3. Teach writing classes
  4. Continue to submit query letters to magazines – I’m still going for Chicago Magazine, Parade and Entrepreneur
  5. Interview writers
  6. Conduct writing workshops and seminars

As I see more things, I’ll be sure to add them to my offline list. But for now, I am working on the brand of me.
