What is Branding? Do You Need it?

Interview with: Angela Mayartis Johnson
Author of Brand Legacy
 
If you are an author, expert or artist or if you offer any service, blog or have a website, you  have probably heard the term “Branding.”  It is a concept that people either love or hate, many misunderstand and is often overlooked.
Today I interview Angela Mayartis Johnson, author of “Brand Legacy” and a branding expert to answer your most basic questions about branding.
 
MM – Many people do not know what a “brand” is when we refer to a person or professional. Sometimes they have negative attitudes, like “I’m not a cow to be branded”. What is a brand? And what is the power of having a “brand mindset?
AMJ-  Yes, there are many people that do not understand the concept of a personal brand, because when they think of a brand they envision things like Coke, McDonalds or Nike. They may even think of musicians, actors or professional athletes as brands, but not themselves. Everyone is a personal brand, however, not everyone chooses to […]

Chapter 1
Kathy and Wilma: Animal Lovers and Entrepreneurs

“This is getting to be ridiculous!” Kathy said to Wilma as Miau curled around her feet drawing an infinity symbol.
“I hear you,” Wilma said as she brushed one of their three horses.
“We are only two people, and we have a business to run!” Kathy said loudly, more trying to convince herself than Wilma. “We can’t be saving every four-legged animal that needs saving.”
“No we can’t,” Wilma agreed as the horse nuzzled her teasingly. “Miau’s diabetes treatment was a massive expense.”
“So it’s agreed, then,” said Kathy firmly. “We will not be taking in any more animals to rescue.”
“Agreed,” Wilma seconded.
The agreement firmly secured, Kathy went on to her new campaign and quickly brought her new book to first place in Kindle. She had the system […]

Can a dog help you sell books in Kindle?
 

As an author, I’ve been following the Kindle phenomena closely to find out if and how to sell my books in Kindle.
And there’s one person that I’ve seen mastering the Kindle game: Kathleen Gage.
I’m a fan of Kathleen because she offers so much value to entrepreneurs. But I also love another thing about Kathleen: her love for animals and her mission to rescue them.
Kathleen’s new love is Delaney. If you look at the pictures of Delaney when she showed up at Kathleen’s door (Picture at Kathleen’s site) you won’t even know if it’s a dog!
Delaney inspired Kathleen to share her up-to-now-well-kept-secret of how she takes her ebooks to No. 1 in Kindle while building her list and making money in the back end.
How did this happen? Well, Delaney was so bad off when she found Kathleen that they’ve had to do several operations to restore her to health. So Kathleen put on a campaign  to help off-set the costs for Delaney’s new operation, and you can be the […]
