What Your Customers Absolutely Must Know About Your Business

No matter how small or new your home business, it is never too soon to start thinking about your brand image.

Brand image?

You may think that brand image is something that matters for consumer products like Coke or Chevrolet. What does it have to do with a small -- maybe one person -- real world or internet business operating off a kitchen table or out of a spare bedroom?

Pretty much everything.

Aboutrepparttar time my brothers and I hit high school, my mother came up with a new catch phrase.

ĻRemember who you are and what you stand for,Ļ she would tell us as we would head outrepparttar 117317 door.

Good advice for a teenager.

Good advice for a business.

Your brand image is what your company means inrepparttar 117318 customerīs mind -- what it can, and cannot, do for them.

It is who you are and what you stand for, as understood by your customers.

Especially for a small business, it is critically important that that image be razor sharp and crystal clear in customersīminds.

You cannot do everything. You cannot even do a lot of things. If you are lucky, you can do one or two things really, really well.

You want potential customers to think of you -- and think of you first -- when they need someone to do those one or two things.

Huge mistake.

You need to be one thing, and to be that one thing over and over and over again -- torepparttar 117322 point of numbing repetition.

Whatever it is that makes your products or services unique and worth having, you need to pound that message home relentlessly, so that those who really do need what you offer clearly understand that you arerepparttar 117323 solution to that particular problem.
