Course Details

This workshop will start with an overview of branding, including a deep dive on brand story, brand promise, and brand value. The way consumers connect and interact with brands and how companies communicate and market themselves has changed dramatically in the digital age. The spread of social media has enabled two-way conversations between companies and consumers, and has empowered consumers to share their thoughts and feelings - both positive and negative - about brands with thousands or even millions of other consumers. Fundamental changes in mass media along with the rise of so-called 'influencers' have led to consumers being bombarded with more messages than ever thought possible. By using case studies participants will work through how brand and brand story can drive communications strategy and messaging strategy. We will pay special attention to influencer marketing strategies in the digital age.This workshop will benefit anyone in or wishing to enter marketing, PR, or advertising, as well as those interested in better understanding how brand and branding affects the customer journey and the customer buying experience.
