Building A Credible Brand

In today’s digital marketing scene, everything is changing so quickly which makes it hard for companies to stay updated. This leads to businesses being left out in the curve. Lara discusses with us why StartUps need a proper presentation to give a good first impression.

“All these different elements have been built out so that we can have a robust online presence. Today, everything is so competitive. If you don’t have a strong brand, you can lose a customer. If you have a bad website, you have a bad product. Having a good design, building marketing funnels and content can help you present yourself properly.” – Lara Jordan

Developing Mutual Trust

Creating a good relationship with the client should be a number one priority for starting businesses as this promotes mutual trust. Lara shares with us her experiences on how to handle this kind of issue for starting businesses in improving relationships with their clients.

“I hear time and time again from potential clients, they’ve been burned by bad marketing that promised something from advertising and they felt it was wasted money. The thing that separates me is that I really care about my clients, I want to feel like a team member at those companies. I want to do everything I can to make them successful.” -Lara Jordan
