Through the facilitation of our Unfussy Brand Discovery Workshop (for teams) or one-on-one style coaching (for individuals), we’ll work with you to inspire the nebulous brand development process – steering you through the logical steps required to:

1. Do your Homework

Conducting research to identify and understand audience pain points and preferences

2. Define your Why

Using the simple stick to define your intangible wealth

3. Write your Brand Story

Wielding the joy stick to find your voice and uncover the essence of brand – directing all efforts moving forward

4. Illustrate your Brand Story

Wielding the joy stick to translate brand essence and messaging into visuals

5. Actionize your Brand Story

Striking the match stick to forge brand essence, messaging and visuals into relevant, resonating creative and marketing communications

Through a combination of targeted internal and external research (including existing and potential audience analysis, industry and competitor analysis, and SWOT and gap analysis), guided introspection and deep abstract thought, you’ll learn how to define the essence of your brand, which can then be expressed within a plot-driven brand story. As a proud declaration of your intentions, motivations, values and beliefs, it establishes the narrative tone which inspires all messaging and visual execution.

The brand story is both your rallying cry and your manifesto.

As you move from words to images to conceptual development, you’ll come to understand not just all the reasons why you truly matter, but also how to effectively communicate these reasons to the right people in the right place at the right time and in the right way to at first make an emotional connection with a potential customer before you can effectively direct them to sales action.

Not for the faint of heart, these are certainly challenging, yet exciting times you face – with the future of your brand image in your hands. But have no fear. Your hands are in good hands…

We’ll guide those hands all Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore Ghost-style as you learn:

  • What is brand, what is it not, and why does it matter
  • The definition of brand as your beating heart in pursuit of happiness and the means by which intangible wealth is exchanged for tangible results

  • The relationship between brand, marketing, advertising and sales
  • Why you should be yourself, even if that means being yourself (celebrating differentiation)
  • Why and how your brand should be disruptive, fluid and evolving
  • How to formulate your brand promise and define your Why (The ONLY statement)

  • How to design your audience(s) and build a brand community through relevant and resonating branding and marketing tactics (the shift from individual influencers to modern crowd cultures of engagement and interaction)
  • How to empower your audience to power your brand (How to give almost free love for free enterprise)
  • How to build a strong internal culture (using brand to effectively recruit and retain employees)
  • Traditional and online / social media marketing and advertising tactics

  • The inspiration, passion and potential to command the pivotal role of permanent, lifestyle-defining (and ultimately bottomline driving) protagonist versus that of a forgettable supporting character within the life story of a client, consumer or community member
