Before you consider online branding, make sure your product is refined and ready to go and then you can begin to think about how you're going to communicate its message. This process is important not just for your marketing efforts but for your company as a whole. Nail your product first, and you'll set yourself up for success in other areas like operations, talent acquisition and customer service.
If you are a pre-growth startup, product is your holy grail. Focus on building a great product that a significant number of businesses or consumers adopt. Achieving product-market fit is the best way to start establishing your online brand. It may sound obvious but every ounce of effort you put into this will pay an order of magnitude in dividends compared to anything you can do to strengthen your brand in the near term. Think of some of the strongest online brands: underneath the ad budgets and Twitter accounts usually sits a remarkable product, or set of products, that serve a need and strike a nerve with consumers. And even if you're an entrepreneur just starting out, you should start with this goal in mind.
As you're working to build your world-changing product, test and experiment judiciously, letting the customer data guide you. You can do this online even if your product isn't polished or you don't have a big budget behind you. Put your work out there, run tests to see how people respond to it and make changes based on what you see from these tests. This can be a lengthy process, but it's a worthwhile one -- and after enough testing and refining, you'll have conviction around your product.

0:06:36.9 S4: Well, what started me to write my first book... I had been doing some consulting with this person, I'd done a lot of work with him, personal things as well as business things, and again, this is before we had lovely handy dandy computers and printers, [laughter] and so all my handouts were on typewriter, and I'd kept all these notes and he kept telling me, "Cherie, you should put this all into a book". And I'm like: "No, I'm not a writer". And so I'd kept all these notes in this notebook, and I had been doing some things. I started teaching at the Desert Institute of the healing arts here in Tucson. And it was frustrating for me because I had to spend so much time in a classroom, bringing people up to speed on basics, and what I wanted to do is spend that classroom time delving in and doing experiential activities. And there's always been good business books and back then the really popular ones were the guerilla marketing books. And those are great books, but they talk in terms of battles and wars and strategies, and those are not language terms that massage therapists resonate with. So I had guerilla marketing on one hand, and then I had Shakti Gawain's creative visualization on the other hand, and nothing in between. And so one day, I'm lamenting this and I open up my closet door in my office at home, and this notebook that was on the top shelf fell on my head.
One of the best tools to facilitate mastery of seasonings is The Spice and Herb Bible. From ajowan to zedoary, spices are compared and contrasted, combined, and explained, and otherwise detailed by a guy who really knows his stuff. Ian Hemphill, owner of a prestigious Australian spice shop, Herbie's, has been working with spices since he was a child. He provides just enough history and background about each ingredient to pique your interest, and then explains exactly how to employ the spice or herb in explicit measurements and combinations. All the spices and herbs in the book are from plant sources and are prepared in cruelty-free ways. However, the recipes that accompany each description are quite often not vegetarian. Still, if you're confused by caraway, you've got three jars of turmeric gathering dust in your spice rack, or you've always wanted to try out nigella, this book is a great place to start.
