What’s the Best Option for Small Business Branding?


This week on Social Brand Chat presented by KXIC we discussed a question from Chris Brogan: “What’s the most tangible output of branding at the smaller business level, like say a local chocolate shop?” What a great — and practical — about a topic that’s hard to get your arms around. Let’s chat about small business branding.

Fun fact about this week’s question is that it comes from Chris Brogan, our headlining speaker at this fall’s Social Brand Forum! More on that in a bit. Chris asked me to be tangible but I have to get intangible first to answer this. Before you can create any optimal output you have to first articulate what it is that your brand stands for? What’s your brand promise. I explain further on the show itself.
