Contradictory to popular belief, branding is not your Logo, Website, or Marketing Collateral. Understanding the true definition of branding will ignite how business owners can use it to their advantage.
Introducing the out-of-the-box idea that your clients or customers are not buying your products or services. What they are in fact buying is an idea and a brand promise. What are you promising to them?
Often, entrepreneurs make the mistake of focusing too much on their own end-game and forget to turn the focus on the perspective of their ideal target market.  
By discovering the ONE IDEA that your audience actually buys into gives way to defining your company’s brand, positioning, story, and ultimately how people connect with your business. It’s quite empowering!
