Episode 31: Scale Your Business with Your "Right Fit" Clients

One of the biggest struggles small businesses have is an inability to clearly define their brand and their messaging. They want more clients, and they try to find them by building a new website or through online advertising or other marketing tactics. They expect that these tactics are the magic formula they’ve been looking for. To make these tactics successful, though, you must have the right message for your audience. Brand is everything that defines your business and it must come first. Otherwise your message is muddled and people have no idea if you’re able to solve the problems they need answers to. When you have that clarity, it becomes so much easier for your clients and customers to find you.

On this episode of Digital Connections, Gabriel Shields with Benu Creative joins your host Nancee Johnson as they discuss how to get clear on your messaging and your brand, and ultimately, how to attract the right client to scale your business.
