  • 1. About me: Went to school for marketing, ended up working as a graphic designerAs a designer I became frustrated and curious about why some brands stick and others fall flatTruth: that graphic design isn’t branding, it’s a superficial application of a brand Became curious to learn all about what branding really is, if it’s not a logo what is it?On that quest I Have had the experience of managing the many touch points of brands and asking why some work and some don’tI’ve worked on government campaigns, with small business owners and non-profits to find the truth of their brand experience 2. Why I designed this seminar?To share what I’ve learned about branding so it can help you build social media in an authentic and brand centered wayTo help show you ways to approach story-telling onlineTo help you look at your customers as brand ambassadors To educate you on the fundamental shift that is happening in marketing so that you can understand if its not social media, its going to be something else that based on this shiftThe share the principles of great social media and give examples of how it can work 3. Why are you here?Are you on social mediaAre you here for personal branding or organizationWhat is an obstacle you face right now in your social media activities

  • Interruption Marketing is:Watchintv with fam – Commercial interruptionDriving in country – Billboard interruptionEating dinner – Telemarketer interruption
  • People have limited time, money and attention span, so as clutter increases the only way to fight for people attention is to spend more money, spending more money equals more clutter… On a personal level I think all the clutter is what is moving us toward a bigger value shift as a whole. Its why I created this company. We crave brand experiences that makes us feel calmer, more at ease, like we have more time, like we are getting the best value for our money, and the list goes on People will pay a premium to protect one of our most valuable assets time, so when we interrupt we take peoples time – that’s leaves a lasting emotional connection
