Hopefully by now someone's had the heart to tell you that your brand is more than your logo. If not, I'm here to tell you that and also break down some things that will help you start your brand successfully.
Branding is what people say when you're not in the room, what they think, what they see, and how they connect with your brand. It's more than advertising and marketing. Marketing is a tool. Remain Forever.
If you're into content creation or anything in the realm of entertainment, I would even go as far as to have an entertainment lawyer to consult with to move forward because some Some people are getting sued for simple stuff like UGC.
Yes especially if you're someone going into business like that deals with like the music industry that would be easy like that would be good to have because the music in a tree is incredibly flawed and you can get in trouble for like the little of stuff

Carol, thank you so much for going out of your way to respond to this soundbite. Yeah, there have been some negative comments, but I'm going to continue to post because I feel I feel like this information should be out there in the world.

I want you to throw out the idea of I need a logo and a tagline and this and that and think of your brand as a strategy and blueprint for the future. If you build out the correct brand strategy you will set yourself up for success, I guarantee.
If you ever thought, wow, she's rude or he has an attitude, that's a part of your brand. So think about it this way. How would you want someone to speak to you? How would you want someone to reflect when they've heard about your brand?
The next question I want you to think about is why do we exist? Why should people care in the first place? If you can answer those questions, then I need you to dig a little bit deeper. What is our next step now that we know what they care about? What do they need?
