– Never stop developing, let your brand grow with your market and evolving times
– Remember that you can ways re-invent
– Be congruent with your brand personality through everything including imagery and messages
– Your colours and fonts are important to your brand personality
– Your brand is not you. Yes, even if your brand is you, it’s still a brand. Remember this always, especially in this day and age, think if you’re taking things personally if someone trashes your brand, it is not a reflection of you (I know this can be tough sometimes, just take a deep breath) Respond appropriately, always. One silly response on the internet can ruin a 20 year reputation in minutes.
