Top 28 Coolest Tools to Monitor Your Brand in Like…Ever!


Photo by Dustin Diaz First up- a fracken disclaimer because you know I need one: I am NOT a doctor, a psychologist, or any other thing that ends in “ist”. So take whatever I say next with a grain of salt, not as gospel truth. Kay? They say that there’s a difference between hearing and listening. Hearing in my book is when something goes in one ear and right out the other. It’s ‘heard’ and...

Old Skool Marketing- Networking Your Way to Super Stardom


Photo by Fire Horse Leo First of all, let’s square away a few facts. Do you own a small business? Are you an up-and-coming entrepreneur? Are you a freelancer? Are you a blogger? Do you work from home? If you’re any of these, then you “should” know just how important building a viable business network can be. In fact, it can be the one thing that can make or break your solo-entrepreneurial gig and...

Dear Big Girl Branding- An Open Letter of Apology to My Blog


First of all, I’d just like to thank you for being so good to me since your birth. I know those birthing canals can get a bit tight, so I am grateful you don’t hate me for not being a better “birther”.  (Yes I made that word up.) Since you were born, you’ve come a long way. You morphed from SexyCopy.Org, with its somewhat off-putting name (No, sexy copy was not a porn site, tyvm) into the...

Copywriting for Uninitiated Business Entrepreneurs


Photo by YlvaS A light bulb moment happens occasionally. And during this moment… it occurred to me today that perhaps a bit of organization to Big Girl Branding’s content could be in order.  With that in mind, here is the first of many (I hope) to come “cornerstone pages”, “pillar pages”, or “tutorial pages”… whatever particular handle makes...

Big Biz, Small Biz-Why the Former Succeed and the Latter Fail


There it is folks, in black and white. There are just some things in this world that can’t be denied and the fact that small businesses fail despite the best efforts of the people behind them is just one of the many things in life we might not “get” but still have to swallow. And what a bitter pill it is!  Or maybe it’s more akin to swallowing nails, whichever metaphor suits your drama...

Using Social Media as a Customer Service Slam Dunk- You’re Joking Right?


Photo by LawGeek Well, actually no. Social media is here and it’s changing the way we do things on a daily basis. But if Twitter, Facebook, Plurk and all those other social networking sites mushrooming up every nanosecond or so have that much power in the real world… We should all be running screaming in fear away from our laptops, computers and iPhones, right? Wrong. You see, the social media...

4 Things a Self-Employed A%# Kicker Can’t Live Without!


GAXWUDYZ3WXS <—Please ignore the geek speak! Photo by Duncan Leaving the rat race to build your own business is a bit like jumping off a plane. You know that there’s a chance of your parachute malfunctioning and your day ending with a resounding splat… but still you do it in the pursuit of liberty and happiness anyway. Bully for you!  You’re daring and adventurous. I like it...

From J.O.B. Slavery to Freelancing Freedom in 5 Easy Steps


Photo by Rokito When I was younger, the idea of me being a professional writer was kinda laughable.  I wrote poetry, but never considered myself “a writer”.  And actually making money at writing?  That was something I thought only big name novelists did. I was so clueless! (Only without the blonde hair and skimpy skirts… and the shopping habit…) As I got older, the idea of writing for...

Forget About Finding NEW Customers- Pamper the Old!


This is a guest post by Adrian Swinscoe regarding a very important topic for a small business owner and entrepreneur… customer retention! Most conversations about business growth would have acquiring new customers right at the top of their list of things to do. For most established businesses, I think that’s rubbish! I would argue that the most important thing for any established business...

Since revamping my website with revitalized copy and search engine optimization, my client load has more than doubled. What has really surprised me is the number of people who come to my office saying that the copy on my website is what got them to call me.

People feel like they get a real sense of me before coming to meet me. This is amazing and means so much in a field often clouded with fear of the unknown. Cori was fantastic to work with in that she went above and beyond to really get what I needed my copy to say and HOW. I think it required a lot of patience on her part and I am so thankful I trusted her to help! Thanks Big Girl Branding!!
