what is brand positioning and why do I need it?

Brand positioning and messaging underpin your entire business: marketing, sales, HR, product development and raising capital. Everything is easier when everyone is reading off the same page.

Brand positioning allows you to stand out from the crowd to reduces sales cycles, increase conversions, make advertising more effective, and attract the best customers.

What are the steps to fix my positioning and messaging?

I use a three-pronged methodology to develop positioning and messaging that makes an long-lasting impact.

1. Customers

It starts with an in-depth look at your prospects and customers to uncover their pains, goals and aspirations, how they get jobs done and what makes them explore new solutions.

2. Competitors

Every company has fierce rivals with strengths and weaknesses. You need to understand their products, positioning, messaging and marketing activities to position yourself as a better option.

It’s time to look at what you do, who you serve, the value delivered, and how you’re different. We’ll explore your product, how it’s used, and why customers love it. The more we know, the easier it is to set it apart.
