Show Notes

  • A brand is not just a logo and a website
  • It’s important to determine your focus to ensure your product or service is referable; meaning people know how to describe your business when talking to others
  • Questions she wants her clients to know the answer to:
    • What’s the purpose of the business?
    • Why does it exist?
    • What’s the change that you’re trying to make in the world, industry, or your customer’s life — in a really compelling way?
    • Is it the process that makes the business different or the product itself?
    • Is that difference important to your customer?
    • What is the deeper reason you want to dedicate your life to this?
    • Why did you select this product or service?
  • Choose one area to excel in first and then you can eventually start selling/providing other services/products
  • As a brand strategist, the elements that Robyn initially focuses on are:
    • Mission statement
    • Value prop
    • Market fit (where are the gaps you’re looking to fill in the market and how can you position yourself differently from your competitors so you’re really sticky?)
    • Who are you talking to? What’s your customer profile? What do we know about them? Possibly use existing brands that you know that they love to build a smart visual brand for yourself that will appeal to your customer base.
    • Core values: what roots you, your morals; as you’re looking for partnerships and employees, ask yourself do these people value the same thing that you value?
    • Vision statements: what’s the change you want to see in the world, industry, or your customer’s life
  • After research and strategy, you then can create your visual brand
  • Create a brand with a purpose
  • Visual elements help communicate your brand
