i love small business! There's nothing more rewarding than helping a local business grow and thrive, especially in a tough economy. My goal is not to advise you to invest tons of your hard-earned profits into expensive advertising campaigns, but to teach you how to use grassroots and guerrilla techniques to optimize your exposure and maximize your results. I accomplish this goal by: Creating website designs and content; Developing logos, advertising programs and brand identities; Coordinating special events, promotions and customer retention programs; Designing and implementing marketing and merchandising programs for local businesses; Creating guerrilla marketing programs and cooperative relationships; and listening to you and evaluating your needs!

A Very Personal Brand Building a brand is about a lot more than selling carbonated beverages around the world or making your company name a household word. It's about creating a consistent and identifiable image for your product or service. Although most people don't equate the term 'brand identity' with the local mom-and-pop market or their neighborhood handyman, anyone who has a business or craft is well-advised to consider the benefits of branding. Let's briefly examine the situation of artist Clay Hood. Once you have met him and seen his work, there is an indelible image engraved into your memory. His work is big, but he is not. Small in stature, Clay makes up for it with a flair for the dramatic. He has appeared at gallery openings and other events wearing translucent butterfly wings, gilded crowns and outrageous outfits of every description. Platform shoes, exotic chapeaux and wild fabrics set him apart from the crowd. You'll never forget him. READ THE REST: http://www.theartofhype.com/gimme-5/a-very-personal-brand

A Sign of [Bad] Things to Come Every business owner on the planet knows the value of a good sign. Properly placed and visible to passersby, a good sign can make the difference between survival and success. Often this is one of the first investments a business owner makes when starting out on a new venture. Nothing new to report there. However, a bad sign can have the exact opposite effect. Dingy, poorly lit, hidden signs can be the death of a new business ... or an existing one. Every time I pass a retail establishment or restaurant I have never shopped in or eaten at, I determine whether or not I want to go there based largely on the sign and the exterior of the business. Today I encountered one such business. Granted, this is not the primary sign for Perla Tacqueria on Piedmont. But it IS on their property. And it is visible to anyone who goes through the Drive-Through or circles the parking lot. I don't know about you, but it doesn't instill a lot of confidence in me that they have any respect at all for the image of their business. And the second half of the sign [attached] is even more alarming. The lesson here: Take your signage seriously. It represents your business. Update: Perla is out of business. There is a new Mexican restaurant with improved signage at that location. More blogs at www.theARTofHYPE.com/gimme-5.php and more thoughts on small business atwww.theARTofHYPE.com/ramblings.php.
