Why is branding important? It is your business’s personality and the image you want it to evoke. People are quick to judge a person, and it's the same for your company. People evaluate the way you present yourself, your look, and your overall style but instead it’s your logo, your photos, your products, and how you present your work. Branding makes a lasting impression.

Hear from Annie Waterman's Clients

“"[My biggest challenge before taking Artisan Branding was] Understanding how to properly rebrand my company to attract our target market. (I was) anxious and unsure of what next steps to take.

(What changed after taking the course was) My understanding of artisan branding, other artisan brands in the space, what to look for in our photography, the importance of colors and fonts, etc.

This was an engaging and concise course full of useful information. Annie, the instructor, was fantastic and so knowledgeable." 

-Caleigh Hernandez, RoHo

"Annie has asked us challenging questions, prompted us to hone our ‘why’ and helped us to establish what sets our business apart from the rest. She is honest and trustworthy and when the time comes for us to expand, we will definitely seek to collaborate with Annie again. ”

— Emma Campbell, The Campbell Collection

“Consulting with Annie on where to begin when starting our artisan business was hands down the best investment we have made. She takes the guesswork out of the (typically daunting) process of starting a successful artisan business and uses her years of industry expertise to offer tailored, no-nonsense advice. After working with her, we now have a roadmap of the steps we need to take, with advice and what to consider at each stage. This is something Googling alone could have never provided us!”

— Lizzie LaCour
