BRAND CONSULTANT & BRAND DIRECTOR
Every business has a brand. Many are carefully honed to engage their target audience. A brand that engages with people and whose values are understood and liked have more ability to convert potential customers. So understanding how your business, it's values and aims are translated in to a compelling brand story will go a long way to have a great brand.
WHY YOU NEED A BRAND
Whatever your business sells your brand is the first thing people see and engage with. A brand is not just a logo. its about the very essence that makes up your business. Your values, your mission, your people, your propositions and your company personality. Your logo can be the first thing people see, but it's not what brings them back time and again or even converts them in the first place. That magic ingredient is more about what you have to say and how you choose to say it.
Creating a market leading brand starts with a brand workshop. I think the first thing to do gauge how you and your team see the business and from that create the definition around the brand identity through consensus and team work.
A brand workshop is usually one day and would require key stakeholders and team members to be involved. Exactly who and how many can be agreed before hand.
Each brand workshop follows the "brand pyramid" process and includes "qualitative" and "quantitive" research to help define the outcomes.
A full brand report is provided. Brand guidelines can be provided (from £600).
BRAND WORKSHOP COST - £650 for a full day workshop
