In this hour and a half long workshop, we will cover best practices for market research and positioning. Each participant will create a positioning chart, craft a unique selling proposition, identify 1-3 target audience profiles, and create 3 key brand stories. With this information, brands will be prepared to begin effective creative exploration with an in-house or consultant creative team. Participants will leave this session armed and ready to execute targeted marketing, sales outreach and design explorations that directly answer business goals.
