Every Business Has A Brand

By John Jantsch

Too many of the small business owners I visit with scoff at the idea of branding. “That stuff is for big companies, why do I need a brand.”

I could use a bunch of marketing and branding mumbo jumbo here to fill up the page but when it comes right down to it branding for the small business is – Telling someone who cares how you are uniquely qualified to solve their problems or finding someone who wants something and giving it to them.

Try to get past being something you’re not and keep it simple.
