2 Critical Reminders About Branding
Branding is more than marketing. Do the hard work to lay the foundation for your business by asking ‘why’ until you get to the core of what you are doing, who you’re doing it for, and what value you provide to customers. That’s your core brand and will help you make all the tough decisions for your business as you serve customers and grow.
You are a brand. For many service providers and entrepreneurs, there is no distinction between the business brand and themselves, so embrace it. Don’t leave yourself out of your brand. Customers are attracted to brands that are authentic and transparent, so don’t hide who you are. Your ideal customer will start to build a connection with you through your brand, possibly long before they ever meet you, so jump in with both feet and let them get to know you.
