A Branded AF Check Up is how you find out the strength of your existing brand and the possibilities of its future.
Yes, you need a check up every now and then. It don't have to be on a schedule. It just has to be objectively..
If you have to ask how to increase sales, then you are definitely in need of a check up.
Fa real, fa real!
You don’t know why you’re losing money or why you aren’t converting.
Like so many entrepreneurs before you, you started a business without a brand strategy. You got all your shit to look pretty but you never established a Brand Identity that feeds the Brand Ego® so that it projects a confident Brand Image.
That’s reeking havoc with your money.
Branded AF Check Up is a way to get a look at your brand from outside the bottle.
The Quick & Dirty
If you are constantly asking why something isn't working, then a brand audit is in order.
Just like everything else in life, a brand can mature and become irrelevant. You may not notice it because you're just doing your thang.
What you do notice is that your sales are dwindling and the world has moved on without you. You didn't know your industry was dying. You don't know how to pivot your brand without losing your existing audience.
A check up will help you see if you're on point with why you're doing this. It will uncover where you fit in the landscape of your industry. It will show if your message is consistent and aligned with what you offer.
Having someone help you see the blind spots is not a sign of weakness. It's the sign of a leader. Knowing when, who and how to ask for help puts you in a better position.
A brand can outlive a person.
Branded AF Check Up is not about tell'n you how to run your business.
The Nitty Gritty
You have to be open to hearing some hard truths about your brand. If you're not ready for that then you will watch as your business continues to spiral downward.
A brand check will give you insights on how to clean up your brand. It will help you take action on how to stick out from the competition and get seen by the available target market.
