Small Business Marketing: How to Build a Brand
Why is branding important?
Marketing is the engine that drives a steady flow of opportunities into an independent professional’s project pipeline. It is essential for independents to create a strong brand and develop a plan for keeping that brand visible to reach potential clients, keep them engaged, and build a lasting relationship.
A strong brand tells your market who you are and what problems you solve, while marketing communicates your brand message and engages your target audience so you can acquire new clients. Without a clearly defined and visible brand, you may not only lose the game, but miss being a part of it.
