Scaling Up Business Podcast

Let’s talk about diversity in light of the recent police brutality attacks. It’s a tough topic because there are two white people and a Hispanic on the call, but the main point to drive home is how can we, as leaders, remove barriers for our people so they can thrive. We are seeing a profound social cost when we see a lack of respect and ignorance.

How do you get your marketing to work better? How do you know when your messaging is working and how do you optimize it for maximum conversions? If you’re worried about whether your message is hitting home for your customers, chances are you have a branding issue.

 

Lindsay Pedersen is a brand strategist and author. With her growth-oriented approach, she has advised companies like Starbucks, T-Mobile, IMDB, and more on how to hone their brand. Lindsay uses her Ironclad Method to run brands through a rigorous testing process to make sure they stand the tests of time.

 

When Lindsay worked at Clorox, she had to get really good at developing the brand so that people would buy them over any other competitor. The truth is, brand-name bleach vs. a private label is the same thing product-wise, so what makes consumers buy a well-established version? It’s all in the branding!

 

People often think that branding is just how your logo looks or how your social media is presented, or your personality. All those things add to the brand but are not the brand itself. Think of branding as your north star that will guide you into different mediums and product/service launches.

 

In Lindsay’s book, Forging an Ironclad Brand, she wrote it to demystify how to create a compelling brand, how brand can be used as a leadership tool, and she shows you the method of how leaders can build this out and not feel so ‘lost’ in branding. The best part is you don’t have to be a creative type to build out this strategy.
