About Brandology 2017

Selling is a critical part of every business’ success, yet the thought of “selling” strikes fear in the hearts of many creative business owners: fear of overselling, fear of rejection, fear of seeming like a used car salesman. The most effective sales people know that selling is a process of listening, empathy, and telling your story in a way that it resonates so fiercely with your targeted customer that they become your greatest sales tool. That was the idea behind June 2017’s Brandology: The Study [Art] of Sales

Many people think branding is a great logo, imagery, or tone of voice. All of those are an important part of a brand, but it is not a brand strategy. A great branding strategy permeates every aspect of a business. Each year, Brandology will address specific areas of creative businesses that help to align your company’s actions with your brand promises. Brandology is about a better understanding of the process coming from people who have walked the walk.

Last year’s event was both inspiring and interactive, not just a day of talking heads. Our speakers prepared the audience to walk away with tools and exercises that will help them to better understand how to up their sales game.
