As companies grow and evolve over time, their products and services diversify. Keeping a clear, coherent and authentic message requires an honest examination of your core purpose and mission. By aligning with your pivot point, your reason for being, you can create and maintain a compelling story line — one that your customers can readily relate to, respond to and believe in. Trust is one of the most valuable brand assets. So keeping your story straight is paramount to winning and keeping loyal customers. In today’s show we’ll delve into what makes for a good company story, discuss examples of companies with broken stories, and share tips on creating and fixing existing stories. Join us as we help shine the light on brilliant branding practices!

Topics address timely issues such as effective naming strategies, smart logo design, tips for trademarking, clear brand messaging, engaging social media and reputation management.
