Do you have a brand story that you share with people who come in contact with your brand? A story that serves as the connective tissue and foundation representing the who, what and why your brand exists on this planet today?
Your brand story should be the thread which connects your value proposition, team, vision, mission, and purpose with your customers, potential customers, audience, community and partners. It is who you are, what you are, why you are in business, where you have been, where you are going, why you are going there, who you have helped, and the list goes on.
Can you answer these questions?
- What is your brand story?
- Who are the characters in your brand story?
- What is the setting?
- What are the lessons learned?
- What happened and is happening on the journey of building your brand and business?
- What differentiates your brand story from your competition?
- Why did you start your business in the first place?
- What is your short, medium and longer term vision and mission?
- How do you do what you do?
- Who do you help? What have the specific results been to date?
