Survey – Pseudonyms – What Do YOU Think?

I was having a chat with someone the other day on the subject of using a different name to market with other than your own.  I know lots of people do it, and we were wondering how far the practice goes.

So it’s survey time.

Hey, if you have the tool to do the job, then why not go for it? 😉

If you have 2 minutes, take the short survey.  You’ll get the results immediately after completion – just make sure to bookmark the results page to see the updates as more people complete it.

I know it’s early days yet, but so far 13.6% say it’s NOT okay to market using a pseudonym.

Again this is another eye opener for me as pen names have been used probably since the pen was invented, and there have been some very famous people in history who have used a pseudonym for one reason or another.

So far though, no-one has felt strongly enough to comment, so maybe the 13.6% don’t mind *that* much.

You just got a comment. I believe it bad ‘business’ practice to use a pseudonym. People [online, at least], in my opinion, want to know who they are working with/giving their hard-earned money to, etc. Trust is the big factor here. How can you ‘trust’ someone who ‘hides’ behind a false name??

Hi Frank,

I think that the comment section on the survey may be broken, since I typed in a couple of paragraphs in there and when I viewed results, the survey script said there were “0” comments. A glitch perhaps??

Have a great day,
