Multiple feeds for me and my brand - Are they useful?
Friends, I would love your thoughts on this question that I’ve been pondering this afternoon.
My name’s Tom. I’m a songwriter, amongst other things. My music is the aspect of my life that I choose to share online.
On I enjoy sharing my thoughts, contributing to discussion, connecting with other humans and absorbing the creations of others as me - myself. It feels natural, authentic and personal.
I have a band, @poisonousbirds, which has a website poisonousbirds.com. I’m also in the process of opening a record label.
When people end up on the Poisonous Birds website, they may end up on Ello @poisonousbirds. I curate some images and sounds there sharing my creative process, but it would feel out of place to place this post there, for example.
But I feel as though it’s my more transparent and personal persona that is interesting, and tends to gather more of an audience.
Poisonous Birds has so far been a solo effort. Apart from the continued assistance of @finnan in drum arrangement and quality control, Poisonous Birds is essentially me. Perhaps that’s why I struggle to differentiate the two, or compartmentalise the usefulness of each.
And when my record label is up and running, perhaps in a year’s time with a few releases out, does that require its own destination for the sharing of content? That’s essentially just me also.
So these entities are just me, and I’m probably more interesting, or at least more prolific that each of them alone, why have multiple destinations?
To the creators: In what ways do you benefit from having multiple social destinations?
To the consumers: In what ways do you enjoy a creative person offering multiple outlets, or compartmentalising each of their outputs into separate feeds, and having a personal identity also?
