How to build a stronger brand

Brand awareness is everywhere these days, but do you actually know what goes into creating a brand?

There’s a big difference between brand identity and brand strategy, says brand strategist extraordinaire, Melinda Livsey. And brand strategy is where it all begins – this is where you get to the heart of what your business stands for and who your ideal customer is.

Armed with this information, you can then birth your brand, creating a visual identity that communicates this same, consistent message through all channels of communication. You can’t talk to people effectively if you haven’t got your branding strategy in place first.

In this podcast, Melinda shares her expert advice on how to go about creating a brand for your business and the steps you can take if you think you need a brand refresh.


What we talk about:

  • The importance of brand to your business
  • What elements go into building a brand
  • Why your logo isn’t your brand
  • How to be intentional with your branding messages

What you will learn:

  • How your logo impacts your brand message
  • Signs that it’s time to freshen up your brand
  • How to know if your brand is working
  • To see branding as an investment, not an expense
