5 Brand Maxims for Digital Marketers

Anna Cotton, Head of Marketing for Brandworkz, has recently posted an article outlining a number of tips for raising and consolidating brand awareness across your business.  ‘How to get the most value out of your digital asset management platform’ provides a simple entrée into the benefits of adopting best-practice brand management across an organisation.

The key points here are adoption, promotion and visibility, and although you might not find anything new or exclusive among the jetsam, there’s enough to help push you in the right direction if you’ve just started to comb the beach for some simple pointers.
