How to Brand Yourself with a Twitter Background



I recently wrote an article for Twitter Backgrounds Gallery website, "How to Brand Yourself with a Twitter Background."

In the article, I talk about when marketing and branding yourself, you want all pieces to look similar and cohesive: logo, business cards, letterhead, envelope, website, brochure, media kit, marketing materials, signage, etc.

And how Twitter profile backgrounds is another tool in helping to market and promote yourself. The background should match your existing brand or look. Twitter backgrounds get noticed if they’re: unique, fresh and stands out from the crowd.

I also go into topics about

+ What size should the Twitter background be?
+ Type of Twitter Designs
+ Tile or not to tile
+ Contrast and readability

The article is up on Twitter Backgrounds Gallery website now. You can read the full article HERE.

I would very much like to customize my twitter backgrounds, for all the reasons you mention, but for some unknown reason twitter won't let me. Twitter is buggy sometimes ... (or maybe it's just me)

I like your approach. When thinking of branding, start by what is visible and what better to do than to start with your Twitter account. Thanks for the tips.

I recently came across your post and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that it caught my interest and you've provided informative points. I will visit this blog often.

Thank you,

I guess I'm just not sure how important a background is to your brand. Seems to me your posts should be the most important part!~
