Every community has a brand, whether formal or informal. What are some things you can do to positively brand your neighborhood?
Community Branding Tips:
1. Organize. Get together with other leaders in your area and figure out where you want to see your neighborhood. Come up with a list of short-term and long-term goals. Look at ways to engage your neighbors and move everyone toward a common initiative.
2. Get Involved. Continue communication with your neighbors, figure out a way to get people involved in your community. This can range anywhere from a block party to starting a forum to promote open yet respectful dialog. You never know what great ideas may come up!
3. Gain Support. While getting people more involved, see if there are any organizations that can help. Even if they can’t get directly involved, they can be a helpful resource.
