Description: In this hands-on session you will learn how to position your brand and develop brand marketing campaigns to differentiate your business. Back by popular demand, the Brand Marketing Workshop will take a deep dive into your brand marketing program. Unlike other (more common) inspection company marketing campaigns, Brand Marketing is customer-centric and doesn’t focus on promotional discounts or your service offering. You will instead build long-lasting campaigns to keep your company top-of-mind among agents and home buyers. Examples of this would be Nike’s “Just Do It” or Apple’s “Think Different” campaigns. If done right, brand marketing campaigns resonate with your customers, improves name recognition and can allow you to charge higher prices for your services.
