  1. Dana Susan…first of all, you are beautiful! Second of all, you hit the mail on the head. Last year, I noticed in Google Adwords that my name was actually a keyword with 79 search results…so I started writing about myself. It was kind of hard to do, but after a while, I made jokes about it and had fun. Well…guess what? Now, my name as a keyword gets over 2000 searches per month. Is that crazy or what???

    Use your name to brand yourself, people! lol!! It sounds silly, but it’s really the simplest thing – and the most effective – that we can do for our businesses. Great advice!!

      Thanks, Christi! That’s very sweet! What a great strategy! Whether you use a description brand or not, a personal name is very important. I like to use both! I have two lessons devoted to this very important subject in my branding courses and I explain the pros and cons of both.
