Brand Spankin' - Episode 008: The History Behind More of Your Favorite Brands
In Episode 008, Jason Hewitt shares the history and legends behind a luxury fashion house brand, as well as the story behind the world's most prominent coffee brand -- and a bonus of how that brand would never have been, not for the efforts of a small band of disgruntled farmers who inadvertently created a now world-famous marketplace from their innovations to sell directly to their market. Wrapping this episode up, Jason tells of the work he did with a client to transform an outdated, failing restaurant concept into a clean, vibrant, and retro-inspired brand and dining theme. The recent results include an increase in revenues of more than 40%, and the illustrious award of the title of "Best Cheesesteak in Pennsylvania" in a USA Today® nationwide poll -- effectively becoming the best in the world, since the specialty sandwich is a regional favorite.

Brand Spankin' - Episode 007: The Psychology of Color
In Episode 007, Jason Hewitt outlines the historic attributions of the most common colors used in branding, including black, white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, and pink. He cites several case studies and historic branding disasters and missteps that cost major brands tens of millions of dollars to correct. Jason talks about how coor influences us based on our most primitive biology, but also within our cultural and social contexts for common color. While the psychology of color is largely subjective, the fact that color does play a major role in influencing us emotionally and causing us to take such action is not at question. Jason provides plenty of science-based detail to back this up, while also weaving a yarn between an array of historical stories that show how brand identities are inextricably linked to the color palettes by which we most commonly identify them.

Brand Spankin' - Episode 004: The $100,000 Business Card
In this episode, Jason Hewitt shares the history of business cards and how they became such a ubiquitous marketing tool today. From the high society of the 17th century, through the industrial revolution of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, to today, these, small and unassuming pieces of paper stock, printed with a person's name and other vital information, have represented a significant part of personal branding. Our cards are part of the role-identity by which we define ourselves, and they represent how we would like to be defined by others. Ultimately, the cards we pass -- and how we pass them -- do, indeed, define us in our businesses, in many ways. Learn how these cards, when expressing a deeply authentic brand image, and printed with exquisite quality, AND presented with tact, can create an additional $50,000 - $100,000 or more in your business every year. And, if after you listen to this episode, you're still not sure about how to monetize your business card, email Jason directly at email@example.com or visit the Brand Spankin' Facebook group at: www.facebook.com/brandspankinpodcast and he'll talk with you personally to make sense of it all.
