Twitter Chat: Is Your Brand Helping Or Hurting Your Business?

Save the date and join us next Tuesday, May 15, 2012 for a Twitter chat that’s all about branding.  And before joining us, ask yourself:

“Is my brand helping or hurting my small business?”

If this question only has you asking more questions, without answers, then you will certainly want to join us for this chat as I will be discussing common branding mistakes and providing tips to fix them.

$100 Gift Card as Giveaway

As part of the chat, Small Business Trends will be doing a giveaway of a $100 gift card. The gift card will be good for services at a FedEx Office store near you. To be entered into the giveaway here’s what you need to do. Just tweet out the following, filling in the blank with what a statement about the value of a professional logo.  At the end of the chat we’ll randomly choose from among the best responses received:

Q:  A professional looking logo …

Example answers:  

– A professional looking logo gives customers confidence in your company’s professionalism.  #FedExOffice

– A professional looking logo says your company cares what customers think.  #FedExOffice

Your answer needs to be no longer than 140 characters, and must include the hashtag:  #FedExOffice

This Twitter chat is part of the FedEx Office® “FedEx Office Our Office Is Your Office Tweet Chat Series.”  The discussion will be moderated on the @FedExOffice Twitter handle and the chat will take place under the #FedExOffice hashtag.

Submit your questions in advance of the Twitter chat to the @FedExOffice Twitter handle, either via direct message or in a tweet, using the #FedExOffice hashtag.  And we will be there to answer them!
