I had a blast at Blogging While Brown. I learned a lot, met good people…man, it was awesome. Another good thing that came from the conference was a state of confusion. It could be considered a bad thing if it weren’t helpful.
I went to BWB as @thewritedesign but I ended up engaging as @marcie_hill. Although I do much, I am not branded as anything. So, I walked away a big question mark: What is my brand? I said that I was going to work the Brand of Marcie in a previous post. I haven’t done it, which is probably why I’m so confused now.
This is what I came up with.
I am first and foremost a writer. So everything I do falls under the umbrella of Marcie Writes. The Write Design Company is my business built around writing, blogging and social media. Shorty: Your Chicago South Side Resource is a site built around community journalism. Thus, I’m implementing my love of writing for my community.
So, my final answer (for now): My brand is Marcie Hill, writer, journalist and blogger/social media enthusiast.
If a marketing guru is reading this, what are your thoughts?
