Branding is NOT marketing or design but the bedrock strategy in parallel with your business strategy — together they underpin and provide critical direction for your whole business.

Branding strategy provides the direction for your marketing campaigns and design execution, so it’s essential to build your brand strategy first — before you engage in marketing or design activities — because it enables you to increase your profits and leave your competitors way behind.

Working in non-competing peer groups through the Persona Brand Strategy Leadership Programme, business leaders, founders, decision-makers, marketing teams and entrepreneurs get results faster with measurable outcomes each step of the way to drive the business forward successfully, build in commercial resilience, and, most importantly, avoid costly mistakes.

The approach employed is consultative facilitation underpinned by a very robust framework. As evidence of Persona Branding & Design system’s effectiveness, they are used worldwide, including on The Economist Group platform (Persona Design owns the IP).

Branding and brand strategy are frequently misunderstood, with the most common mistake among SMBs being the belief that a logo, website, brochures, and design are what comprise branding when, in fact, those are instead design executions.

Done correctly, branding strategy coupled with your business strategy enables you to:

  1. Differentiate strongly from your competitors in the eyes of your customer, so making you clearly stand out
  2. Build unshakable relevance, trust, and credibility among your ideal customers, so you expand your customer base, likeability, visibility, referral, and retention
  3. Increase your perceived value, margins and sales, so you grow your profits faster
  4. Develop your brand hierarchy and product or service portfolio to avoid customer confusion, so you can effectively maximize your up-sells and cross-sells
  5. Engineer business model resilience, innovation, and product development, so you can future-proof your business and its ability to leverage opportunity in adversity
  6. Structure your business/brand to build your brand IP asset value for investment and/or preparation for selling 
  7. Achieve higher revenue consistently

Let’s talk because the Persona Brand Strategy Leadership Programme could be your best-kept secret enabling you to achieve higher revenue this year and leave your competitors behind.

Clients & Brands

“We participated in the Persona 7-Figure Business Building & Brand Strategy Mastermind 12 week online course. The 12 week program suited us as the weekly accountability spurred us on to get work done between sessions.

We found the flow of the course appropriate for the development of the brand through the various areas of the business.
Already, we have developed our Customers Persona’s and our Brand Persona adding value to the business.
The course has helped us make more astute decisions in the business such as restructuring our product offerings so we grow more profitable lines and remove those with lower margins.
Lorraine is very helpful and accessible as a tutor with follow up after each working session and the half day masterclass. Most of all the clarity achieved has been most invaluable.

In the first two weeks of March 2020, before Covid-19 required us to close, we were 300% up in our online sales compared to the whole of March 2019. By the end of May 2020 [after being completely closed for 6 weeks with our 150 staff furloughed] we were back to 69% and by end of June 2020 back at 108%, January 2021 we were up four-fold on January 2019 

— results achieved from applying our brand strategy.”

Want to participate in the Persona Brand Strategy Leadership Programme?

We’re thrilled!
This is The Persona Brand Strategy Leadership Programme which means participant numbers are limited.
If you’d like to participate so you can make your brand more highly visible, distinctively different, credible, trustworthy, increase perceived value to command a premium and be much liked by your ideal customers so you can increase your sales then get in touch.
We do our best to read every message within 48 business hours. We’re kind of obsessive about customer care so if you don’t hear back, that means we didn’t get your message so please do send it again.

    “Having worked with Lorraine on a number of events and projects, I knew that taking part in the Persona 7-Figure Business Building & Brand Strategy Mastermind programme was going to open my eyes to how my brand could be mapped out and developed to help the business grow.
    I had no idea just how much of an impact the programme would have in helping me to shape my whole business strategy and lay the foundations for my future plans. By evaluating my brand, defining and putting structure on what we do and why, it enabled me to map out the direction for where the brand is headed.
    All the worksheets, tools and resources you receive are very thorough and Lorraine gets a great sense of what your business is and what you are trying to achieve, so her guidance is tailored to you. It is also extremely beneficial that she is there throughout the programme to give advice and feedback.
    I would highly recommend the Mastermind programme to any entrepreneur/SME that is striving for success.”

    You also get

    The Auditing Analysis Accelerator™ eProgramme so you can give your brand a health check yourself to help you identify its strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for innovation and growth. (Value $297.)

    Brand Identity“Lorraine Carter is my branding mentor, she’s the person that showed me how to improve my personal and business brands — they were a mess when she initially looked at what we had — and she blew my mind! I’ve paid high fees to other ‘supposed’ brand consultants who only had 30% of her in-depth expertise and they couldn’t deliver on what we needed.
    She gives you the key foundations and lays things out in an easy to use system which gives you all the essentials needed to make your brand stand out, to make your brand highly visible. If you use her branding strategy system you’ll soon have everyone talking about your product or service to become No.1 in your market.
    Lorraine takes no name companies and transforms them into household brand names. Most importantly, she’s great fun, absolutely passionate about branding and she’ll entertain you whilst demystifying branding and making the unknown clearer — because designing a logo is only a tiny part of your entire branding process.
    I would highly recommend the Mastermind programme to every entrepreneur who wants to be more successful and have a clear message driven by their brand.
    Thank you so much Lorraine for all your help. We wouldn’t be so well known in the USA, UK or Romania if it wasn’t for your direction and input to develop and build our brand.”

      Programme

      Over the fourteen weeks, we’ll be working on re-evaluating key areas of your business together with implementing change where needed to drive growth.

      Using the Persona Brand Building Blueprint™, an agile branding system underpinned by big-brand know-how (created by Lorraine Carter and also used by The Economist Group platform), objectives to be achieved in the Mastermind include, but are not limited to, the areas listed below to drive growth:

      1. Re-evaluating the fundamentals of how successful brands and branding works using big-brand know-how with an agile branding mindset so you can apply this to your business. Demystifying a lot of misinformation, so you’re enabled to make more informed choices to drive growth in the context of your business strategy, sector and geography

      2. Leveraging the power of psychology to attract your ideal audience and influence their buying decisions focussed on your primary decision-makers and influencers (ethically) so they’re compelled to consistently choose and refer your business/brand instead of your competitors

      3. Purpose Drives Purchase: Discover how to leverage the power of purpose like every billion-dollar brand so you can identify, articulate and apply purpose and purposeful productivity so you increase your sales, profits and build a stronger employer brand to attract and retain top talent. This is one of the major secret drivers behind successful businesses, large and small

      4. Vision is the art of seeing what’s invisible to others: Getting clear on your future state, where you want to get to, and articulating it as a leader so your stakeholders, customers, and employees are inspired to follow. Brands and business are built in the present to achieve future objectives so clarity on that future vision is critical to your success

      5. Mission is the initiatives, strategies like your product or service development and go-to-market plans — the ‘what you do to get there to achieve your vision and purpose so we’re re-evaluating your mission to make it stronger and more actionable for faster outcomes

      6. Your values: do they have inspiring context, longevity, standout resonance, or are they bland and meaningless? These are the standards you live by and believe in, that attract your ideal customers and drive the way you do things consistently every day so we’re putting them under the magnifying glass for re-evaluation too!

      7. Differentiation, Gap Analysis & Opportunities: The gap analysis framework we’re using in the context of the Persona Brand Strategy Leadership Programme™ is to identify your positioning opportunities and differences relative to your competitors. This is with a particular focus on market gap analysis, so you can use the outputs to inform a strongly differentiated positioning (relative to your competitors) to drive sales opportunities.

      8. Re-evaluating your positioning to drive high visibility, standout differentiation, credibility, trust, likability, and preference amongst your primary audience so you can command a premium in an overcrowded market. What your customers think is the only thing that matters so their perception of what you have to offer is the reality, even if you disagree, so it’s up to you to mold and shape that perception through your positioning strategy in the market relative to your competitors

      9. Mapping out your different business verticals/sectors, customer profiles, and the influencers and decisions makers in eachso you can build your brand to more effectively meet their current and future needs, so they see your business as the perfect choice because this drives growth

      10. Your product/service portfolio: Evaluating how to restructure and ‘productise’ them to make up-selling and cross-selling more effective and more profitable with incomparable, higher-margin, added value so you avoid confused customers defaulting to price-based decisions

      11. What do you promise to do for your customers, the non-negotiables to meet and exceed their expectations every day? We’re looking closely at how you can do this more effectively and articulate it clearly so its very customer-centric and compelling

      12. Your brand/business personality: (not a mascot or VIP) the image you want to authentically project about yourselves, the language you use, the way you behave, your visual style and the tone-of-voice used in all your communications and the customer experiences you create so you stand out, highly differentiated, referable, likeable and memorable to increase sales

      13. Story underpins how we make sense of the world, remember things and share, so how compelling is your business story — who you are, when and why you came into existence, your founders, struggles, successes — articulated and shared so its highly memorable and referable because this is how your customers get to know you, care about what you offer and trust you so you can be the preferred choice and rapidly increase sales. Is your story well written? How effectively are you telling and disseminating it so your market notices, is attracted to your business, and consistently buys from you? We’re re-evaluating this too using the Persona Business & Brand Building Blueprint™

      14. Your Value Proposition: Your value proposition makes it irresistibly clear to your ideal buyers the problems you solve for them and the benefits you provide, and why you’re uniquely better than any of your competitors — the best choice for them. It’s not merely a slogan or tagline. Culminating in all the work completed in the preceding weeks, this working session is focussed on bringing it all together, so you make an indelible, highly differentiated stamp in your market to achieve higher revenue growth faster with bigger margins.

      The documented outputs you generate in the Persona Brand Strategy Leadership Programme from re-evaluating your business strategy and brand strategy are what underpin the key commercial decisions made. The strategies you develop, and the activities you deploy all collectively shape your culture, customer experience, marketing campaigns, and design execution and ultimately drive sales to grow a highly profitable business and leave your competitors way behind.

      “I really appreciate Lorraine’s energy and passion. Although good branding includes so many facets, Lorraine is able to simplify the process and make it so much more tangible for any company to put into practice.”

      Lisa Kettman-KervinenMarketing Communication Specialist | The Switch

      “For anyone who has a well established business or even a start-up I would totally recommend to join this Mastermind because it will provide them with a new perspective on how to think of their brand. You see in different markets and industries that are overly competitive what makes the difference is knowing what exactly your business is all about and why people would choose you instead of any other competitor.

      What makes you different from all the other service or product providers in the market because that’s whats going to make your business be the No.1 choice in the range of those specific products or services that you’re providing. Also thats what’s going to make your brand standout and have a long lasting life and thrive in the context of where you’re operating and delivering value. So totally go for it!

      The Mastermind provides you with a lot of insight and more than that, with a systematic process that’s easy for you to understand, easy for you to grasp, easy for you to work with so you finally nail what makes you different in your business, and what you are about and what those key points are that resonate with your audience.”

        “The Maguire & Paterson brand was established in 1882 and therefore the rebranding and new packaging had to be managed in a very sensitive and caring manner.

        Persona Branding & Design worked very effectively with the M&P management team ensuring that the findings of consumer research were correctly interpreted and factored into the brand revitalization and new range designs. We found their ability to steer us of significant benefit.

        Persona Branding & Design also ensured that we kept our focus on core objectives and diplomatically challenged us at various stages on our thought process, ensuring that any brand preferences did not stray from the core objectives.

        We would have no hesitation in recommending Persona Branding & Design and we would be very pleased to speak with any potential client(s).”

        “I recently organized a large Business Forum for business owners and stakeholders entitled ‘After the Storm – New Business Opportunities’ to highlight the challenges and changing face of doing business in today’s economy. I was delighted to engage Lorraine Carter to speak at the Forum as I have seen first hand her expertise in Branding and Design.

        More importantly I know Lorraine as a Professional Speaker who delivers not only excellent content but is passionate about the positive financial impact of great branding and design.

        Lorraine’s talk entitled ‘Brand Your Way Out of Recession’ was extremely well received. Her clarity, eloquence and use of storytelling evoked clear examples of how both big, medium and even small businesses have reached the top with successful use of effective branding and design.

        Once commissioned, they became part of the business extending their expert opinion and brilliant creative solutions in total harmony with our requirements which has achieved great results. This is important since it is often the detail that can make or break a business relationship.  Their work philosophy is the best contract a client can hope to receive.”

        “I have known of Lorraine’s high quality work for a number of years and in late 2008 I finally had the opportunity to work with her in developing a brand and marketing strategy for an upcoming awards ceremony.

        Lorraine patiently guided the team through the process and was excellent in identifying the nuances, do’s and don’ts of our target market. We started out thinking a brand was just a logo but now know better!

        Before this however, Lorraine had sat down for coffee on an number of occasions with my colleague and I on a different venture and was very generous with her time and sharing her knowledge. I aim to call on Lorraine many times in the future and look forward to it.”
