You are creating a new brand and finding your old brand is still sticking with you. The new brand has to address what you used to do. People may be too polite to ask, “So what did you do before you started doing this?” but they are thinking it.

You are a product. The goods and services you and your company sell are products. Do people understand you and your products?
What is a brand?Macmillan Dictionary defines branding as, “the use of advertising, design, and other methods to make people recognize and remember a particular product.”[i] You are a product. The goods and services you and your company sell are products.Perhaps Junior Achievement’s definition resonates more closely. In JA It’s My Future, JA says, “A company’s brand is its promise that customers will have a good experience when using its product o...

Part of identifying who your target market IS means identifying who your target market is NOT. Do not waste time with those who are outside your target market.
You Spend Your Marketing Time on Non Target-Market Types — What to do about it?Have you ever gotten to a place in your marketing where you realize you are marketing to people who will never buy from you?
