The truth about branding is that it is so much more than colors, fonts, and the way YOU look.

The whole purpose of selecting colors, fonts and photos are to covey a feeling to your ideal customer. How do you want them to feel? 

All the things you do will be a reflection of your brand, your brand values and the things that are important to you.

HAVE FUN with this but DON’T OVERTHINK IT!

So many people get hung up on this because they want it to be pretty and perfect. But I am here to tell you that DONE is better than waiting til perfect, and you will change/evolve it over time. 

Brand Name

If you aren’t selling products, you don’t have to focus on the brand name but if you are selling products or courses or anything in the future focus on your brand name. This is a big decision!

The best brand names are the ones that clearly communicate what you’re about! For example: I have a product named “The Ultimate Social Media Toolkit” and you got multiple resources in a toolkit to help you succeed with social media. My Brand Name is Modern Money Queen- I am helping people make money the modern way with social media and online digital products. 

Coming up with a name means taking some time to do some serious brainstorming. If ideas aren’t your thing I’ve got some tips for you too!

  • Make it unique: Think outside of the box for coming up with your name. Use adjectives to describe your brand.
  • Keep it easy to remember
  • Avoid confusing words and extra punctuations
  • Think about the future
  • Incorporate your Name

While clever names are fun and exciting, sometimes people may not understand them. Make sure it is CLEAR.

TIP: think back on the keywords that were a part of your research! 

TIP: if you are a coach, or influencer, it is likely your business name is YOU!
