Branding is a complete new ball game from even ten years back. It used to be – in the dusty history – that brands were seared into the flesh to identify the herd. Thankfully, those right times are past (unless you count number-body art and piercings, we won’t). Corporate and business branding techniques really weren’t much different, treating their customers like so many generic pieces on a casino game board.
Consumer behavior has transformed. Today, customers have the energy so branding strategy – specifically for Solos – must change with the changing times. People have grown tired of being shouted ‘at’ but big business. They’re fed up with one-size-fits-all products and having to get around complicated computerized telephone trees whenever a problem is experienced by them. They’ve learned they can consider the internet to find better options. They can reveal reviews of other consumers and study from past errors.
- Dec 26 Christmas Day
- Work vehicles, like a $19,999 Ute. Just await the EOFY advertisements
- Running manual and automatic tests
- “Ignoring a caution cause a lot of mourning.”
- Allow customers to quickly purchase, monitor, and reorder
- Mission statement: “We’re in the business to save our home world.”
They can turn to social media to vent their stress whenever a company doesn’t deliver. Consumers today are also drowning in messaging. Compared to a decade ago just, individuals were hit with about 5,000 advertisements each day in 2006 (up from 500 each day in 1970). Today, it’s approximated to be over 50,000!

That’s why you’re seeing a drastic fall off in the potency of marketing today – even with personalized email marketing that people have signed up for. It’s just TOO MUCH. So, what does one do to survive in business today? If I were to request you to make a list of the 5 most influential people in your daily life right now, could you do it?
Because those people have an individual impact on YOU. There’s a resonance. It’s personal. That’s the answer. Odds are individuals you’ve shown said something or did something that triggered these to be lodged into your consciousness. A good example is Oprah for me. Over the full years, she’s portrayed her opinion, distributed her tests, and offered us a maximum into her life.
All with an open sincerity without seeking to be someone she had not been. While she does have a worldwide company, she will not hide behind it. She’s connected with millions just by being true to herself personally. This is expert branding at its best. Let me share a business secret: You don’t need to reach large numbers. A solo-based professional only requires a few well-paying clients – and well-paying clients tend to refer people like themselves to businesses that treat them well and deliver the products.
