  • “Brands are highly forgettable. So you can market like crazy, but if the brand isn’t very sticky, or the message isn’t very sticky, it will be forgotten.”
  • “Don’t hide behind your frickin website. Even if you are the CEO, people want to know who’s the head dog of a company.”
  • “When it comes to branding, we need to take a step away from the product and service that we sell and figure out what our personality is and how we will get our personality reflected in our marketing.”
  • “When you know what emotion and feeling your brand conveys when people see it, it is time you can architect an experience for the desired outcome.”
  • “Many people don’t realize we could be charging more, but we need to up our game.”


  • We need to connect with our audience emotionally and with whoever decides because they must emotionally connect with your brand before understanding your cost-value proposition.
  • It becomes essential for large organizations to create a personality for their brand that is reflected in a very strong aesthetic that is simple to recognize and connect with.
  • You better have a kick-butt product if you’re in the business. It’s enough to get to the game. But then you’ve got to attract attention.
  • Colors, textures, patterns, fonts, and vocabulary are the building blocks of a brand. Then you use those things on your website, LinkedIn, podcast, etc.
  • Most businesses lower the price of their products to compete with other companies. Good brands, however, usually come with a premium. You’ll go out of business if you keep engaging in that mathematical game of trying to persuade your customer that your costs are significantly lower than the benefits.
