Design and Build a Brand for your Business
In this episode we talk with marketing expert Kirt Daunt about developing a winning brand.
Episode 69 – Design and Build a Brand for your Business
Amongst a range of interesting topics, we discuss two aspects that one should obsess over –
- What your client needs and wants
- How to deliver this profitably to your bottom line
Kirt makes the point that doing a good job of the first helps you achieve the second.
Kirt also shares some interesting aspects about identifying one’s key client, starting with the thought-provoking question, “Who do you fight for?” He suggests that the aim of your marketing is to be famous with these people.
Making it real, Kirt spontaneously pulls in a wide range of examples – not just from the accounting and financial planning world but glass manufacturing; weightlifting equipment and even James Bond! The discussion truly is a celebration of how marketing can be interesting, appealing and, as Kirt clearly states….Fun!
Following the interview, Kirt kindly provided a summary of some key concepts covered during the discussion, Design & Build, where Design refers to creating a brand blue print and Build refers to constructing a marketing plan. Access the summary here.
The company with awesome marketing that Kirt mentioned during the “Rapid Fire Dozen” section was Catch: www.catch.com.au
