The Heart of Your Brand

Meet "Ginger"- super sweet ranch dog #vscocam

This is “Ginger.” She’s a super sweet ranch dog who lives on the eastern plains of Colorado Springs.

I know the folks who own Ginger well. They are good friends.

In some ways, Ginger represents her owners’ brand. What others say about you and your business is important.

I have people every week ask me, “What do you do?”

Here’s where I am with that question. I am marketing consultant. You know the skeleton, structure and feel of your company. You have a notion of where you want it to be. My job is really to understand the heart of your company, app, startup, etc. and transpose that into online messaging that potential and existing end-users can understand.

I wish I had a cool dog like Ginger. What is the heart of your brand?
