Small and mid-size businesses often overlook the importance of their brand as a foundational aspect of their sales and marketing strategy. Failing to clearly define their brand results in disjointed sales and marketing efforts that lack a cohesive and unambiguous message. However, by establishing a clear and well-defined brand, businesses can effectively communicate their value proposition to customers, articulate their commitment to delivering on their promises, and differentiate themselves from competitors.
Monty Sharma’s brand session focuses on how businesses can create, build, and promote their brand. The session will focus on:
- What is a brand? There are many misconceptions about a brand, chief among them that a brand is simply a logo. The focus of this talk is that a logo is but one element of a brand, and prior to designing a logo, a business should explore in depth what the brand represents, its value, and how is it different from the competition.
