Branding that resonates

 
Want to Stand Out in a Crowded Market? Maybe it's Time for a Brand Strategy.

 

Now that summer is here, you may have some extra time to review your brand and see if any enhancements could be made. Do you think your brand communicates what makes your business unique? 

 

Remember, you want to be your clients' and prospects' only choice. A unique brand that encompasses your business values and the overall client experience helps to ensure that your messaging will set you a part from the rest. 

 

As we have always said at The Personal Coach, branding is much more than simply your marketing materials. It is integrated into every aspect of your business and affects how you communicate and do business. It helps you maintain a consistent message, strong reputation and gives people a good understanding of what they can expect when working with you.

 

You can however, do a preliminary review of the quality of your brand by going over your marketing materials or "TouchPoints." 

 

1. Business name - your business name should be interesting and communicate what you provide in an intriguing way, leaving people wanting to ask more questions. 

2. Slogan - do you have a catchphrase and if so, is it memorable?

3. Descriptor - this should clearly state what your business provides and for you?

4. Logo - this symbol should connect the message between your name, slogan and descriptor as well as spark interest through imagery.

5. Stationery - does the font, design and layout align with your brand message?

6. Greeting - answering the phone, meeting face-to-face and email communications, do your client interactions exemplify your business values and are they consistent across the team?

7. Website - Does the design match your brand? Is the text clean and concise with a strong call to action? Do you feel proud to show people your website? 

Enhancing just a few of these items can make a big difference in your overall brand. If you find you don't have a brand or your brand isn't consistent across marketing materials, or doesn't truly feel aligned with what you and your business are all about, do not hesitate to reach out.

 

First, comes the brand identity and then comes marketing materials you can be proud of! To learn more, let's pencil you in with our Brand Coach, Fortunato Restagno. Happy Planning!

Creating Podcasts

IS IT WORTH IT?

 

Are you an advisor who sees the value in podcasts? Are you wondering if creating podcasts is worth your time and effort? Podcasts are an inexpensive way to position your business and add value.

 

For the technically disinclined, a podcast is an episodic series of digital audio or video, which a user can download to listen to. If you are already creating content for a newsletter or e-campaign, or have hired The Personal Coach to create content for you, why not summarize your written communications in a podcast.


Consider this before doing so:


1. Compliance


Check your dealer’s compliance regulations. Some may have specific guidelines and others may not allow it.


2. Ideal Client


Will a podcast be valued and listened to by your ideal clients? Age, region, occupation and psychographics play a major part in what works and what doesn’t when it comes to your marketing strategies.


3. Hire a Social Media Expert


You may wish to hire a social media expert who has the ability to effectively share your podcast with your network. Send your podcast to your clients, centres of influence and prospects.


4. Compelling and Engaging Content


Your podcast should be educational and help position you as the expert. Avoid bragging or directly selling your services. Any tips or ideas you share should be followed with a sample client story that will resonate with listeners.


5. Other Tips


Have a catchy intro piece with music. Use your slogan if you have one. Use a novel strategy - create curiosity, develop your characters, have a climax and a memorable ending. Make sure your microphone is clear.
