Brand yourself with a ringtone!

Phone How a person brands themselves changes over time.  Clothing labels, playing certain positions on sports teams,  and Girl Scout badges evolve to the type of car you drive, your personalized plates and today in our all-tech world — cell phone ringtones.

Remember when you thought having personalized ringtones were a crazy fad the kids were into?  Now, it’s absolutely mainstream.  So here’s my question.

If you could only use one song for your universal ringtone (so everyone in your world and your general vicinity) would hear it and associate it with you — what song would you choose?  Let me give you a running start.

My fellow Iowa blogger Doug Mitchell mentioned PhoneZoo at breakfast this morning. 

Look at some of the ringtones you can have sent to your phone for free.

Are you an intense guy who’s life is sort of 24/7?  How about the theme song to "24" or Mission Impossible?

Are you whimsical and short?  How about the Oompa Loompa song from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?

I know…feeling silly and colorful?  Why not sound like Fred Flintstone or Peanut Butter Jelly Time from The Family Guy?

Go ahead….brand yourself with a song!

  1. Is there a song called, “Rode Hard and Put Up Wet?”

    That’s me all over, baby. (Or “Life is a Highway” would do fine in a pinch.)

  2. Drew, I think it’s a great way to brand yourself. Recently I found a site where I can download a bird call – perfect.

    Only problem, I don’t have Internet access on my phone. Anybody have a solution for how to get it on there?

    Maybe I’ll have to call Sprint…

    Roberta, your comment is too funny.


  3. Roberta,

    You almost made me spit onto my keyboard. Ahh, the visuals your theme song conjours up!


  4. Sandy,

    This site, PhoneZoo, will allow you to create a custom ring (with the bird call file I bet) and then they just send it like a text message to your phone.

    It worked slick for me!


  5. When my “007 Theme” goes off in client meetings, no one else ever goes for their phones. And I kind of like it. Good post — great blog! Thanks.

  6. Stephen,

    Thanks for stopping by! Like you, I think many people enjoy having their ringtones give a hint or two about their personality or their life.

    I’d ask you more about your work, but I know you’d have to kill me!

    Drew I just thought you should know that my ringtone is a rap song called “I’m Bossy”. Is that just way too obvious??

  8. Hannah,

    At the next Blogonostra, I am going to call you just to check!
