About this event

This event is provided by City Club of Portland

At it’s core, brand strategy is about understanding your audience’s needs, identifying what you have to offer, and then communicating your message in a way that resonates with your audience. Brand strategy tactics can be put to work for your cause, business, or even for personal branding. Workshop attendees will learn brand strategy basics, and leave with an idea of how to put them to work to:

• Identify and connect with audiences
• Write titles, headlines, and descriptions that resonate with the audience
• Use social media to strengthen outreach
• Consistently communicate your brand across all touchpoints
• Handle partnerships, joint-branding and sub-brands DIY tools, expert tips and resources will also be shared throughout the presentation to empower attendees to implement what they’ve learned on their own.

Content will be geared towards City Club of Portland members, however
concepts can be applied to other situations where brand strategy is needed.
