“A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well.”
― Jeff Bezos
In this episode of Therapy Insiders podcast, we are joined (once again) by Larry Benz. We discuss what it takes to run a successful business by focusing on an important marketing strategy–branding. So, how do successful businesses brand? Think about it… When you smell coffee you think…Starbucks. When someone mentions a smart phone you think…iPhone. The best companies create an emotional connection and reliance on their product that goes beyond quality. Not to say good quality isn’t important–because it is–very much so. What does it take for YOU to brand like a multimillion (or billion) dollar company? Find out here on the podcast! Enjoy!
