Virgin StartUp Masterclass – How to build a knockout brand

‘How to build a knock out brand’ is part of a growing number of masterclasses run by Virgin StartUp to give entrepreneurs the practical skills and tools they need to launch and grow awesome businesses! 

About this class 

At Virgin we’ve built business after business off the back of our irresistible brand and we want to share our expertise with entrepreneurs and start-ups to help them create the Virgin’s of the future. 

Having a great business idea alone is no longer enough. Customers now want to know the story behind the business, what it stands for and why they should care! It’s why so many of the best new businesses are putting brand front and center of what they do! 

As a startup, it’s really important to consider what your brand stands for, what your values are and what you want to present to customers… getting this right helps shape everything that you do going forward!

You don’t need a multi-million pound budget to start building your brand either.  This master class will show you how you can start to develop a brand that’s attractive to customers on little or no budget.

Who is this for?

  • You have a great business idea and want to develop a coherent brand before telling the world about it.
  • Or maybe, you’re creating a website, landing page or social media presence for your business and want to know what style will work. 

  • You could be working on your business plan and want to know exactly what your business stands for and who it will appeal to. 
  • Or perhaps you already have a product and want to create a brand brief that will help you design packaging for it. 

  • You could already be running a business but want to get serious about your brand.
