Facebook offers this through their social media site, as does Google +, Blogger and several others but it is easy to create your own website including a blog on WordPress. So easy that I have included a free ebook to help you create one. After downloading this ebook by going to the link at the side of this page and entering your email address, you can creat your first or second or whatever website. WordPress.com is a wonderful tool for just about anyone to create their own special blog with their own special taste and it is free.

Brand

Brand from istock

Who are you? I really want to know. I think that is a line in a song by Who, but I’m not sure. What I do know is, your brand is very important. Ultimately, your brand will be what people remember and it represents you. A brand contains three things: logo,tagline, and name. For more complete information on this go to  Branding, an article I have written on my business website or click over to business on this site where you will find many articles about all phases of business. A name should say what you do, a tagline defines your vision and a logo, sharp and succinct. Color plays into this as well. Red is for passion while blue is calm. Brown wraps you in a warm blanket while yellow brings in a new, happy day. Think of some brands that show this. McDonald’s has the yellow arches, while UPS is brown. What colors work best for you? Why did you choose them?

Go to the Business Venture Center site for advice on that and many more things.
