  1. Commenting on Brand Building Tips (on a budget) published by SEO Book:
    “the key is to repeat a single, simple, compelling message, over-and-over again”;
    I think the challenge for most small business owners is in creating that message. The reasons that they got into the business seem to get intermixed with their message – and that’s not focused on the customer or the market but on themselves. It is a hard distinction to make – but a necessary one if you want to build a strong brand.
