Content DNA brand values: the long list.

Content DNA brand values

Chapter 9’s long list of brand values.

My book, Content DNA, includes advice for business owners on defining the “shape” of their brand.

One of the exercises in chapter 9 is “The X Factor word list method”. If you’ve read the book, you’ll know that didn’t want to stuff a dirty long list in there, so I’ve put it here instead.
