Trump’s curiosity and openness to the publishing and television industries and that paid off handsomely as he took the leap of faith to write a book and being a television personality, which led to the Trump brand becoming iconic.
Therefore, be curious, pay attention to trends and develop ideas for that opportunity. For example, you can start by being curious on how to serve different groups of people during the haze season.
You can then turn the current haze situation into an opportunity by venturing into, say, the air purifier business for the elderly or developing respiratory masks for athletes. You can have tons of opportunities coming your way by staying curious and receptive to new ideas.
The Trump brand is one of the most established brands in American history and culture. Having an extremely strong corporate brand is one of the factors which sets Donald apart from the other political candidates in the election.
If you’re business owners, you must learn the essence of brand-building as this will give you the upper hand over your competitors in your industry. For a small business without a brand, no one will know who you are, what you do and why they should work with you when there are so many competitors.
By being a brand, you command authority and credibility as your audience will trust, value and appreciate the service you are providing. One way of creating a brand is to establishan online presence in the 21stCentury and start exploring opportunities online if you want to build a successful business.
As a Presidential candidate, Donald is extremely proficient and active in branding himself as the only logical choice among social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
