Managing your brand environment is one of the critical steps in the thrid phase of the personal branding process – Exude – and items such as pens, diaries, computers, cars, offices all say something about your brand.
Cellphones are fast becoming an all in one item – phone, camera, MP3 player, diary, e-mail, web browser, TV etc etc. So it is even more critical that the phone you choose is on brand for you.
The phone manufacturers are getting in to this in a big way – colours and faceplates have been around for a while obviously, but now you can also get charms that light up when the phone rings, vaious styles of cases, sequined stickers and even custom labels.

So whether its the latest Blackberry, or two cans of Coke connected by string – just make sure its on brand.
