Hope you’re all as excited as we are for our March series, “Bland Brand, That Won’t Stand!” We’re dishing out tips on branding, with a dose of Dr. Seuss for good measure. There will be posts that rhyme, some that call on the fun of the good doctor and many others. When it comes to music, some of the best rhymers out there are in hip hop. Plus, there’s few better at promoting themselves and building a brand than rappers. So, think about what each of these artists flows about. Let it inspire you to build your own brand as you’re following along with this week’s series. Enjoy!
