Branding Tips to Increase Sales

Why some companies never make it big - mindset!

Posted by Dale Berkebile on Fri, Apr 13, 2012

Today I was checking out linkedin and I connected with someone who requested a connection. Linkedin dropped me into the people you might know section so I started looking for any quick connections I should have. I saw a designer I used to run into about 9 years ago when I was new to Fort Worth and networking like crazy to drum up new business.

Why branding doesn't work for most companies!

Posted by Dale Berkebile on Fri, Mar 30, 2012

Today I am reviewing everything I've done over the last 13 year. On April 1st, 1999 I was in a position to start-over to start fresh and create whatever I wanted. This is the day I officially started my company full time. I was 27, and I am now 40 years old. In the early days I was on-fire and excited to make my way in the world. I wanted to create the top design firm in the world… but what does a 27 year old know about that?

Branding faux pas - stealing photography to build your brand!

Posted by Dale Berkebile on Tue, Feb 14, 2012

No images were stolen to create this article: Brandwise owns the rights to the image in the header of this article. This is an example of what a stolen image looks like, notice the "X" going from corner to corner and the "shutterstock" logo as a watermark in the center of the image. Typically this means this is an unpurchased image and the user does not own the right to use it.

Business ignorance or a flat out lie & damaging the brand

Posted by Dale Berkebile on Tue, Feb 07, 2012

So today I grabbed some lunch at Wendy's. Typically this is a good experience and the local Wendy's is really good. Today's experience however left me frustrated. I think Wendy's is a little pricey and when I have a bad experience I really find that I paid too much. Since there is very little quality food joints local to my office I frequent this Wendy's location when I need to grab something.

Why CEOs need to include branding as part of the exit strategy

Posted by Dale Berkebile on Tue, Nov 29, 2011

If you are a CEO of a smaller business it is very important to look into the future and make a game plan for how and when you will retire. Depending on the size of your firm you may need a few things in place in order to leave or sell the company. The first and probably the most important thing you need to do is figure out a way to replicate YOU. If your company can not function without you, it is worth nothing to anyone else. So putting systems in place documenting how you do what you do is important.

Internet branding adds exclusivity & expense with Branded Domains!

Posted by Dale Berkebile on Thu, Jun 23, 2011

That's right branded domain names! Now your probably wondering what does this mean… "branded domain names?" or isn't our current domain name a "branded domain name?". For some I would say yes and for others I'd say no. If you got to the name game late or bought your domain name unstrategically, your brand name may not be in your domain name. Obviously if you are reading this article on our site, you probably know the getBrandwise.com domain. On one hand this is a branded .com domain name, but not nearly as branded as the new branded domain names that were announced on Monday of this week.
