IS YOUR BRAND CLEAR?

People are building relationships with authentic purpose-driven brands that align with their values and world-views. In order for any brand to initiate and maintain a meaningful relationship with their audience, it requires that they be crystal clear about what they stand for and what they offer.

AS A BUSINESS

  • Are you frustrated because your business isn't reaching its potential?
  • Does your team have a hard time explaining what you do?
  • Are your best and brightest employees going to your competition?
  • Is a merger or acquisition on the horizon?

As a professional association

  • Do you struggle to justify or demonstrate the value members receive for the dues they pay?
  • Is growing your membership a growing concern?
  • Is member engagement low?
  • Do you have the influence you need to elevate your profession?

AS A First Nation

  • Does your community have a lot of great ideas, but no compelling vision?
  • Have you certified with FMB?
  • Are you moving towards self-governance?
  • Is blending your cultural traditions with a progressive view becoming a struggle?

ARE YOU LEADING WITH A PURPOSE-DRIVEN BRAND?

When your brand is crystal clear, everything about your organization comes into focus. Decision making becomes easier, faster and more effective as your entire team aligns around a collective purpose.

5 STEPS TO BUILDING A TRANSFORMATIONAL BRAND
Generate Insights

It's easier to know where you're going if you know where you're starting from. Qualitative and quantitative research provides critical information that will point you in the right direction.

Define a Strategy

Defining and articulating what your brand stands for, who it's for and how you're positioned is critical for long term success. A clear strategy will make decision making easier and stress free.

Build Your Identity

Your brand identity consists of all of the sensory elements that make up your brand. Logos, typography, iconography, colours, sounds, music, textures and even smells and tastes blend together to create a tool kit of elements that are used to build your brand experience.

Create the Experience

Equipped with a comprehensive tool kit, an immersive brand experience will provide your target audience with a meaningful and memorable interaction that will move them from customer to advocate.

Align and Manage

Consistency is essential in maintaining and growing a brand. Communicating your brand in a way that aligns with your core purpose and values will ensure you also align with your core customers' world views and provides them with consistently meaningful brand experiences.
