Topic: How to Build Your Brand to Build Your Business
Are you thinking too small when it comes to your brand?
“Your brand has the power to boost sales, ignite profits, and increase shareholder value,” says award-winning Fortune 500 business and branding strategist Howard A. Lim. “It’s the visual foundation of your company. From first impression to last touchpoint, your brand is a key factor in building your business for long-term success.”
In his game-changing presentations, Mr. Lim reveals the secrets he’s used to generate billions of dollars in profits for corporate clients, including Apple, Honda, Disney, DreamWorks, Acura, Xerox, Oracle, ATT, Cirque du Soleil, HP, and many more. The author of “Authentic Branding,” Mr. Lim shares real-life examples of winning strategies he’s devised for these corporate giants, which have added value to their brand and company equity, and shows you how these tips can work for your business as well.
You’ll learn how to define your UBP (Unique Buying Proposition) to customers, strategic partners, and investors, as well as how to leverage your brand and business—regardless of what product or service you sell—to gain a competitive edge and maintain a winning strategy for months and years to come. Drawing on over 30 years experience, Mr. Lim walks you through the most common branding mistakes that cost businesses thousands of dollars each year. You’ll learn specific tactics, such as sequencing your online and offline media for greater ROI, and uncover ways to create a brand and culture that attracts customers and employee talent, as well as open doors to increased revenue streams. “When you discover how to brand your business the right way, it can help your company stay relevant and unique in the marketplace for the next 10, 25, or 50 years,” says Mr. Lim.
Each presentation is customized for the audience, and Mr. Lim makes sure that every story is applicable to the challenges your company is facing right now. The result?
