Step 3. What technology are you using that will give you multiple platforms to reach your target audience? Social Media, Website, You tube…etc. Maximize your reach!!!!
Step 4. Do you have an events calendar? What is your company doing and how are you letting your target market know that you are doing it. Put together a monthly events calendar.
Step 5. Do you have a calendar of events? This is a calendar of events that you need to be in the room for, whether virtually or physically. This gives you the opportunity to network, dialogue and give awareness to your Brand.
Step 6. Products/Services expansion. Take a look at what other products and/or services you can offer to your current clients or can you expand to offer in order to gain new clients and increase your Brand exposure.

Do you have fundamental principles that your business believes in or has a mission to accomplish. This gives everyone that you encounter an image that they can feel when they think of your brand.
