Event description

Description

Small business and startup business leaders are some of the most hardworking individuals around. But with an endless task list, it can be hard to focus on your business’s brand. It’s even more difficult for solopreneurs who wear many hats at one time

Our workshop caters to those who want to define their target audience, expand their reach, and build a tribe of advocates who will sing your business’s praises from the rooftops.

Upon registering, you’ll be prompted to answer a branding assessment questionnaire. Once you arrive at the workshop, you’ll have a confidential full analysis of your company’s brand customized just for you with feedback from our strategic and creative team. Elements include:

  • Website grade and analysis
  • Social media observations
  • Media buy analysis
  • Logo/brand standards analysis
  • Opportunity to share challenges, concerns, or questions you want to hear more about in our workshop

The workshop will cover a variety of topics to help business owners identify their target audience, adjust their messaging to resonate with potential clients, and review the best touchpoints to execute your strategy moving forward.

Topics include:

Identifying your audience: hint, it’s not everyone.
This topic will review the demographics and psychographics of your customers, where they get their information, and how this has changed over time.

Feelings over Features: Tell Your Story
In order to be successful, simply saying “We are the best” is not enough. We’ll discuss how sharing your story is far more impactful than just talking about your deals of the day.

Media Madness
TV, radio, social, digital, newspaper, is Yellow Pages even a thing? This session will cover the ins and outs of media and how best to spend, and if it’s even a good fit for you.

Website
We will teach you the essentials your website needs to act as more than just a brochure, but also as an important member of your sales team.

Messaging Mayhem
Through this session, we discuss the importance of saying the right words to the right people. Your brand has a voice, and we are here to help you find it.

Sticking to Schedules
Our team members will work with you in scheduling out a content calendar and plan for the next quarter. This will include social media, digital media, traditional media, PR, and other events to boost your business. You’ll leave with a schedule in hand that you and your team will be ready to roll out.
