Aligning your brand with social issues.
Any creative work may experience additional pressure due to issues with branding, marketing, and self-promotion. Many people still struggle with the decision of whether to compromise their creative integrity by following mainstream market trends or to pursue their creative dreams, even if they don’t guarantee a steady stream of income.
The number of aspiring entrepreneurs is still expanding, thanks to the development of the digital age and social media. And this is truer still if you are an author because, whether or not it is related to your line of work, anything you write conveys to the globe who you are, what you believe in, and what you are striving for. Each word we write literally creates a picture of who we are.
So, in a sense, we can use writing as a tool for branding. According to our professional credibility, the writing should convey our creative vision. The level of impartiality you desire may be difficult to achieve over time, but if you focus on purposeful writing and align your purpose and values, your writing will more accurately reflect who you are and how you want to be seen by others.
Writing about creative endeavors and being able to share the creative vision shouldn’t be viewed as an attempt to persuade others or as a means of selling something; rather, it should be seen as a way to share our talents with a wider audience and lay the groundwork for an ability to contribute you can handle.
Supporting social causes
It is too simple to forget that several non-profits or even radical movements started as one human trying to turn to a friend and ask for support, even though utilizing social networks for advocacy may seem completely pedestrian and banal. Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube are great places to advocate for your cause even though they are all a part of the notoriously egotistical Me culture. Why? Because responses are simple, even without the one-button simplicity of televising and rebroadcasting statements, images, or videos. And if you want a larger portion of the aforementioned attention pie, conversations are precisely what you require.
Newspapers and television are still great media for promoting causes and organisations and generating support. Nevertheless, access to it is restricted. A regular Joe cannot be certain that his voice will be heard or that anybody will give him airtime, not even on reality TV. With the advent of the Internet, social media platforms seem determined to realise Warhol’s dream of turning everyone into a celebrity, even if only for 15 minutes. Though fame could develop into something more enduring if you utilize social media platforms for what they are meant for—to forge genuine relationships.
Although it may seem so obvious, many people overlook the fact that social media platforms are more than just a place to broadcast or a podium from which to express one’s opinions. You must pay attention to what people are saying rather than just having a Twitter account, Facebook fan page, or YouTube channel. This might entail spending more time and effort reading feedback and responding to it than just coming up with a campaign or the eventual viral video, but the long-term benefits are worthwhile. You can find real communities on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube from which to gain knowledge and unquestionably support.
