Episode 007: Your Brand As A Story

Brilliant Branding Live Show Archives

Originally aired weekly August 2017 - August 2018 With host Phil Davis


Brands can serve a number of key functions, from a simple identifier to an entire messaging platform. In this episode, we examine the value and benefits of having a brand story, as well as how to create, articulate and weave that storyline throughout your marketing. While brand names names provide a starting point for conversation, brand stories offer a higher degree of engagement. They work on an emotive level and create compelling connections that go beyond the functional feel of product and feature based branding. If you are looking to tap into your customer base on a deeper level, be sure to listen in and discover how you can create a narrative that intrigues, invites and inspires your customers. Rather than getting off to a slow and stumbling start, discover how to engage and enlighten your clients from your initial introduction all the way through to the (very) happy ending.
