Blog (Listen Up, Brains!)

“Listen Up, Brains!” is a blog where I share my knowledge & experience about the following topics: visual arts, art & design biz, content creation, & mktg comm.

Listen up Brains, I mentioned once The Importance of Monitoring the Strategic Planning Process A.K.A. monitor, tweak, and repeat. Now, we are going to talk about knowing when to kill your investments from digital and traditional media in a marketing campaign . . .

The trick behind personalized digital communication is to know your audience. The better you know your audience, the better you can communicate and connect with them. For example, your communication tactic between a business professional and a regular person at a whimsical coffee shop won’t have the same tone or vocabulary . . .

Words can spark emotion, inspiration, motivation, creativity, even destruction. When choosing which words to associate with your brand, think about what you believe your brand stands for . . .

One of the best things a brand can do is be unique, confident, and have their own personality. If I were to tell you to imagine Apple, Google, or Amazon as a person, I’m 90% confident we would all come up with similar personifications of these brands . . .
