How to Win the Branding Wars

Win the hearts and minds of your target customers by investing in better branding that is well integrated. When branding is done right, it builds strong relationships with customers and draws in potential customers before they even need your services. It creates a buzz across all marketing channels—from truck wraps to websites to print collateral and more. With strong branding, your marketing efforts earn a better ROI. Dan Antonelli, founder and president of KickCharge Creative, will show you how disruptive brands make marketing more effective.


About Dan Antonelli

Growing a small business is no easy task. It takes ingenuity, resolve and setbacks before reaching success.

The definitive industry expert on logo design for small business, Dan has authored three books on the subject and established KickCharge Creative as the premier brand-building agency for small businesses nationwide.
