About this Event

Developing a Strong Brand to Create a Valuable Business

This free clinic is all about helping you to develop a strong brand for your business to effectively communicate with your customers. Receive expert advice about how to ensure that your brand is different and better than your competitors, giving you a sustainable competitive advantage and creating a valuable business. Bookable one-hour appointments are available between 9:00am and 1:30pm.

Why attend this clinic?

Helping people understand what you do, how you are different and how your product or service can help them is essential to the success of your business.

If you are a high-growth business and can answer yes to any of these questions, this clinic could be just what you need:

  • Do you have a great product or service, but you’re not exactly sure of why you need a strong brand too or how you might go about developing this?
  • Do you have a brand, but your “brand positioning” (i.e. how your customers and/or potential customers think and feel about you) isn’t as clear as you would like?
  • You just need a bit of help thinking a few things through about your brand and how to communicate it.

What is covered?

A brand is not necessarily what you think about your business, but what your customers think and feel about your business or product, and how they engage with you.

In this clinic, you will receive tailored one-to-one advice for your business from our expert and have the chance to get your branding questions answered. This could include exploring the following:

  • How to identify what’s different and better about your brand / business
  • How to build your brand equity and value
  • How to develop a brand positioning [statement] to help guide all of your marketing communications
  • How and where does your business or product fit into the market? Who is your target audience?
  • Brand storytelling – What is your story? How to tell your business story and inject personality into your brand
