Hinweis der Redaktion

  1. Briefly Discuss Branding: We call it – “finding your why” Why do you exist? – no, it ’s not “to make money” What purpose are you serving, and why is it important? How do customers feel / how do you want them to feel What do you have to say that is truly unique? Strategy: Strategy is not “get more customers” – the strategy lies in what type of customers, how you’re planning to engage them, and what you want them to do (one-time customers, loyalty, brand ambassadors, etc.) Your strategy may not be about getting customers. Perhaps it ’s about establishing yourself as an expert, making yourself available to the media, or leveraging twitter as a syndication mechanism for your content.
