Branding Basics For the Non-Techy

Talking about branding is really in right now - and for a good reason! If you want a respectable business that is an authority and success, then good branding is a must.


What makes up a brand?

"A brand is a name, term, design, symbol or any other feature that identifies one seller's good or service as distinct from those of other sellers." Wikipedia

Branding doesn't always have to be hardcore software tools, or for the photoshop pros. You can build your brand in so many ways. We have put together a list of places we LOVE that you don't need a degree in on how to use.
