Minling is a geek about all things branding. Good thing too because as a brand marketing strategist and coach, she has worked with solopreneurs, small businesses, consulting companies, and big brands to strategically market and position themselves so they have an eye-popping 'It' brands that turn heads. Minling is passionate about helping small business owners uncover their unique message so they can rapidly build a list of raving fans eager to buy along the way.
Branding is more than the website, logo, and graphic. Branding is perception. How you are perceived by others. So instead of focusing on the visuals, start by focusing how you can emotionally connect with your audience and building a strong bond with your potential clients and customers. This will help you build loyalty and become known as an authority brand.
On this episode, Minling tells the story of her crush on Tom. Tom is so amazing. He cares about others, he gives back everyday and when Minling is with him she feels like a better person too. Who is Tom? It’s actually a brand. A shoe brand that gives away one pair of shoes for every pair purchased. The way Minling feels about Tom’s brand is exactly the way we all want our clients and customers to feel about us and our brands. Mingling talks about what individuals and companies can do to help create that kind of connection and feeling with customers.
Minling also shares the story of her journey from doing marketing for big brands through an agency, to trying to start her first company and eventually coming back to her love of branding for small businesses.
