The success of Noah Brier’s Brand Tags project is proof of its simple awesomeness. The other day I had a spin-off idea about personal branding. It started with this thought:
Isn’t it funny how brands try to be people, while people try to be brands?
So that led me to consider how Brand Tags might work for brand you. Just like with corporate brands, if I am what other people say I am, why not just ask those people?
The idea is that maybe Noah could create a little ‘personal brand tags widget’ to sit on our blogs, facebook profiles, etc. It could simply say – “what pops to your mind when you think of me/ this blog?”
I think it would be pretty cool, and a little scary, to see what ideas people connect with me. How ’bout you?
Are you curious about your personal brand cloud?
POST: the tag widget could also serve a feedback function. For example: “In one word, what did you think of this site?”
