Topic: “Make Yourself:” 5 Tips to Jumpstart Your Business Brand
TIP 1 – Get A Logo! Your #logo is the face of your biz. It’s the statement about your biz that you want to give #legaltweetmeet
Hire a graphic designer to design your #logo because professional #branding work yields better results #legaltweetmeet
Make sure your #logo excites you with pride because it sets the tone for the rest of your branding products #legaltweetmeet
The Style, colors and graphics will resonate in the rest of your brand products (business cards, flyers, etc.) #legaltweetmeet
#TRADEMARK YOUR #LOGO! The last #legaltweetmeet was about this so you should understand the value of protecting your biz identity
TIP 2 – Determine Your #Niche to narrow the focus of your business #branding campaigns #legaltweetmeet
For example, a instead of marketing yourself as a “photographer,” #brand yourself as a “wedding photographer” #legaltweetmeet
A #niche gives your brand orientation toward a target market – DON’T be a “Jack-of-all-trades; Master of none” #legaltweetmeet
Master a #niche to build a reputation -your brand- in other words, what you’re known to be proficient at providing #legaltweetmeet
TIP 3 – Establish Your #Network! Build relationships with #PROFESSIONALS both in and outside your profession #legaltweetmeet
Making contacts in other professions will open up new markets for you to spread your #brand far and wide #legaltweetmeet
Many frown at this, but offer pro bono and promotional services/products or barter with other professionals #legaltweetmeet
Helping others in need of your services/products will generate hype about your business and promote your brand #legaltweetmeet
Don’t offer free services/products too often & lose the ability to make a living because you’re known for doing so #legaltweetmeet
TIP 4 – Know Your Worth! #Research what other professionals in your industry make for their services/products #legaltweetmeet
Compete by not overpricing your products/services but don’t be the bottom rung of the ladder either. #legaltweetmeet
Be flexible! Provide multiple payment options for customers with various budgets (installments, deposits, etc.) #legaltweetmeet
TIP 5 – INVEST IN YOURSELF! You should be enthusiastic about spending the money to design establish your brand #legaltweetmeet
You can’t expect the cost to be cheap for designing a logo, business cards, websites & other marketing materials #legaltweetmeet
Prepare to spend at least about $1000 – it’s a large investment, but worth it if you take time and FOLLOW THROUGH #legaltweetmeet
Invest in accountants, business consultants and especially lawyers to help maintain and protect your brand #legaltweetmeet
If you’re not willing to spend the money to build your brand, how can you expect your clients/customers to do so? #legaltweetmeet
Lastly, know your strengths&weaknesses. Don’t attempt things not in your skill set. Invest in tools to assist you. #legaltweetmeet
I hope you enjoyed my 5 Tips! Put them to work as you build your brand, fulfill your dreams and Make Yourself!
