IRVINE, Calif. (May 17, 2016) – Ryan Rieches, co-founder of BrandingBusiness – a leading brand strategy agency with offices in California, New York and London – recently discussed the intricacies of building a brand on “On Your Mark, Get Set, Grow”, a podcast of CEO Coaching International hosted by Steve Sanduski.
“Branding is a very misunderstood word,” noted Rieches during the interview. “It comes with a lot of connotations and, I think, misunderstanding as well. The way we define it, it’s your unique promise of distinction.”
During the course of the 38-minute interview, Rieches provides key insights about how to enhance a brand and get to the essence of your company’s unique promise of distinction. The secrets he unveils include:
*Branding isn’t just fancy packaging and a catchy jingle.
*Your branding program will fail if you leave it up to the marketing department.
*What comes to mind when people think of your company?
*Why you need a positioning statement and how that relates to your “brand essence”.
*How having a clear purpose, vision and mission are critical building blocks of the branding process.
*How branding is a team activity.
*Be intentional about how you position your brand, or the competition will do it for you.
*If you can’t state your brand essence in five words of less, start over.
