Discovering your brand personality

An archetype is a universally familiar character or situation that transcends time, place, culture, gender and age. It represents an eternal truth.

Pretty big statement right? Don’t feel overwhelmed if you’re not sure where to begin applying archetypes to your brand, because our webinar is here to help. An archetype allows your brand to communicate a clear tone of voice through your marcomms strategy, voice (copy), and visuals.

The communications build trust with your target consumer and ultimately set you apart from your competitors.

Sounds pretty good, right?

Watch the video to discover your brand archetype.

There are twelve archetypes. All brands should focus on having two / maybe three archetypes:

A primary archetype – which is your outward-facing brand, the one you talk to customers with, that they resonate with and become loyal customers.

A secondary archetype – is your inward-facing brand, how you speak to your team members, how you run one-to-ones, how you hire new team members.
