Branding You and Your Product
A BUSINESS PLAN
 The business plan should tell a compelling story about
your business, explaining who, what, when, where, how
and why.
 Your plan should be focused and clear. It is not about
the number of pages or style of the cover.
 The plan should define specific business objectives
and goals with general parameters to guide the
organization.
A BUSINESS PLAN
 Writing a business plan should force logic and
discipline into a business.
 A good business plan is a living document. It should
be updated regularly.

BRANDING
Marketing You and Your Business!
The American Marketing Association (AMA) defines a
brand as a "name, term, sign, symbol or design, or a
combination of them intended to identify the goods and
services of one seller or group of sellers and to
differentiate them from those of other sellers.
BRANDING
Therefore it makes sense to understand that
branding is not about getting your target market
to choose you over the competition, but it is
about getting your prospects to see you as the
only one that provides a solution to their
problem.
BRAND OBJECTIVES
Delivers the message clearly
Confirms your credibility
Connects your target prospects emotionally
Motivates the buyer
Concretes User Loyalty
