This Northern California WIPA event focused on the importance of building your brand and how important it is to establish yourself in the marketplace. It was stressed that, to effectively establish your brand, you need to define your unique point of view, identify your target niche and market yourself in areas that will help you reach your audience. From there, maintaining the developed brand message was explained, as it is imperative to work with clients that allow you to showcase your unique approach, design and style.
