Branding To Connect With Clients
Show Notes

Nikki Takahashi knows what goes into creating a great brand!

Nikki is the founder and CEO of Fetching Finn, a multi-6-figure branding and design agency that gets clients noticed in person, online, and in print.

(She’s also the only designer I know who has won a Governor General’s medal for her achievements!)

If you want to connect with your customers, you need to go beyond the graphics.

“A logo and a website is kind of where people start when they’re thinking about branding. But when it comes down to it, branding is so much broader than that,” Nikki explains. “Building a brand with traction, one that gets sales and gets noticed and gets remembered, starts with messaging and not with the design piece. So, that’s been a shift in my business.”

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌

  • The #1 change that Nikki made to her business which wound up being absolutely pivotal 
  • A walkthrough of what to expect when you seek out branding services
  • Whether you should have a personal brand alongside your business brand
