Save the Date: Twitter Chat, October 20, About Branding

On Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 8 PM Eastern time I’ll be on a Twitter chat hosted and sponsored by FedEx Office®. And I’d love to have you join us! Bring your questions, bring your expertise, bring your advice for others in the small biz community.

build your brand

The topic is going to be branding – how to brand your business online and off, cost effectively. We’ll also cover re-branding for those of you who think your business brand needs a facelift or just freshening up. We’ll talk about logos, business cards, cost effective strategies for print collaterals and signs, and much much more.

To participate in the chat, just log on to Twitter on October 20th at 8 pm Eastern and follow the hashtag #FedExSmallBiz. Be sure to use the same hashtag in your tweets, too, so others will know you are participating.

$100 Gift Card Giveaway

To sweeten the pot a bit, Small Business Trends will be doing a $100 gift card giveaway. 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 give a Twitter sized tip to answer this question:

Q: Which social media profiles should go on your business card, and why?

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

Please tweet your tip answering that question, prior to or during the chat. At the end of the chat I will choose the best tip to receive the gift card. To be eligible you must be located in the United States. The gift card is to be used at a FedEx Office near you. Void where prohibited. No purchase necessary. FedEx Office has no involvement in the selection of winners. This is sponsored by Small Business Trends.

Disclosure: FedEx Office compensated me to write this post and participate as a small business expert during the FedEx Office Boost Your Small Tweet Chat program. FedEx Office also provided the $100 gift card. The ideas in this blog post are mine and not ideas or advice from FedEx Office.

This Twitter chat is the third in the FedEx Office Boost Your Small Business Tweet Chat Series. We earlier published the press release about the chats – you can find more information there.

This Twitter chat is sponsored by FedEx Office. Questions will be asked by a representative from FedEx Office.
