We all have brands we love and admire, but what is it about them that makes us keep going back? A catchy slogan can help, but one of the keys to brand loyalty is how the brand is able to convey its messaging and share what it is about.

Branding allows a company to share its purpose, mission, and why you need its products or services. For those looking to boost their small business or personal brand through messaging, it may be a struggle to figure out where to start and how to captivate an audience with who you are.
