Using Social Media to promote your brand’s presence is far from a new concept. After all, we talk about that on The Thread, like, everyday. But amidst the slew of beer companies and energy drink labels popping up on Twitter and Facebook, there are other “brands” that seek So-Me representation.
It’s important to remember the definition of a brand. Every business or establishment that appeals to the masses or recruits the public has its own brand. A brand isn’t just a logo, after all.

Maximize Social Media, an agency out of California, has announced that it will now reach out to churches, and other religious groups, offering them Social Media management services, just the same way they would for, say, a car company or a sunglasses designer.
Social Media is, in fact, the ideal outlet for religious communities. Whether it’s the posting of inspirational words from pastors, invites to a community picnic, or fundraising for new choir uniforms (hallelujah!), this is a great way to reinforce the already strong ties that bind these groups together.

Wanna know how neat? It would be THIS neat:
