So often when we think of branding, we only think of colours, fonts, logo. It’s so much more than that.
You’ve got to start from the foundations of your biz.
Ask yourself these 2 questions:
- What is it all about?
- Why should anyone care?
In this video, I talk about the process of examining (and building) strong foundations for your business, so that you can answer the questions above – and so you can use this knowledge to help you with the more superficial aspects of business branding.
You can listen to this podcast below, or on your fave podcast app – or you can watch it on youtube!
