Often when we think about branding, we think about image most of all. Branding is so much more than that. Excellent branding is a system of consciously delivered strategies. It’s practically your business model, representing who you are, who you want to attract and the direction of your business. So much more than the image! Today we’re discussing a Brand Mapping Strategy with 7-specific elements you want in your business and personal brand.
