5 Ways to Define a Strong Brand

Key Insights and Tips to Define a Strong Brand

I initially connected with the talented Neela Asaadi, CEO and Creative Director of Asaadi Graphics, at a Six Degrees Society event. We were specifically matched to network together (virtually), and I immediately understood why. Not only is Neela one of those rare individuals who has the ability to radiate good energy literally through a computer screen (goals!) but she’s also incredibly talented. Seriously though, check out her site.  Upon connecting further, I asked if she would provide a crash-course guide to my audience (you all reading this now) on “5 Ways to Define a Strong Brand”. Branding and presence, both visually and through active expression, is foundational to the success of any business. It also happens to be a critical component of successful PR. Check out Neela’s tips below!
