Razor Branding™ develops brands from the inside out, establishing a series of branded touchpoints that form emotional connections with the consumer. Developing these connections relies heavily on understanding the psychographics of audience behavior and not just demographic profiles that rarely tell the whole story.
The process utilizes 4 primary elements to achieve these goals:
helps define who you are and who your audience is – through the use of consumer insight, demographics, psychographics, and personality profiles.
defines that one differentiating and powerfully compelling quality that makes your brand razor sharp – in effect, the promise behind the brand.
establishes your “voice” and a messaging system that is based on your defined brand promise – making you the preferred choice over the competition
works to identify and develop a series of branded touchpoints that establish trust – connecting with your audience where they live, work, and play.
