“Brands often want to be all things to all people- Your best success is going to be to create something that is your own path.”

How do you stand out in a SEA full of people who are doing what you are doing? Jeremy Slagle says it starts with STORY. So before you start making a logo and deciding what your branding colors are going to be, you need to go to the farmer’s market, pull out a notebook and ask some deep questions. Say what? Yup. Today you are going to learn a few practices that will help your small business have a bangin’ brand.




  • Before you make your logo-- DO THIS!
  • Incorporating YOUR STORY while still making our client/audience the focus
  • Best way to get AUTHENTIC feedback from your target audience (and what questions to ask!)
  • What are things you can do to separate your brand from the “next guy”
