How Do You Get Your Brand On?
Wednesday, September 7, 2011 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (PDT)
San Jose, United States
Companies of all sizes struggle with this question. For small companies the question is often whether or not to spend the resources to develop one; for larger companies it’s how to have your brand work really well; and, for all of them, there is always the question of what value does our brand bring us?
Come hear from the experts—the company helping ASL refine our own brand, The Oya Group—what a brand is, how it works, and why more and more companies are returning to branding to help them stand out in an ever more crowded marketplace.
Key topics to be discussed:
- A quick history of brands
- A very quick lesson in neurophysiology
- Why is branding important, examples of why this all works
- What makes up a brand?
- When do you need a brand?
- How do you get your brand on?
- Which of these is right for you?
