Hello, I’m Jim Glover, That Branding Guy, for Once a Day Marketing™. Today is Recon Thursday where I share my thoughts on branding and marketing.

The other day a friend posted an inspiring illustration on Facebook. The image showed a man walking through a field pulling an asphalt road behind him. With every step he was leaving a defined path for others to follow. The caption read: "Sometimes the best road is the one we make".

This illustration reminded me of all the promotional channels available to market our products or services. I refer to these options as the marketing ecosystem. There are countless combinations -- print, video/audio, PR, online, direct, out of home, place-based, mobile, and experiential -- that you can use to develop your marketing. If you are creative and strategic, you will map out a plan or "recipe" that is unique to your brand. If successful, your competitors will follow.
