Branding Basics: Build a brand strategy in 3 simple steps!

Why do people buy top shelf liquor?

Try this experiment at your next party: Buy a few vodkas (or champagne or wine) from a few different price tiers. Conduct a blind taste test. See if your friends can correctly rank the different vodkas according to their respective prices.

Chances are they will tell you they can, but in reality they probably cannot.

So, why is there such a thing as top shelf liquor - if it doesn't pass the scrutiny of a simple taste test.

Student Testimonials

I really loved this class. I know NOTHING about branding and marketing and have taken at least 10 classes on the subject to date. This is the first class I took where I felt like I actually understood the concepts. I've been feeling incredible stupid up to this point because the instructors just seem to babble on using jargon and terms I don't understand. Jeannie's class breaks it down in layman's terms so now I understand that to create the brand identity. among other things, involves the functional & emotional benefits of your product... There are questions to answer concerning your product or company in each lesson that were extremely helpful to me being able to wrap my head around what branding is and how to go about applying it to my products. I highly recommend this class to anyone who's like me and needs a step-by-step, broken down approach to branding you products or company. - Denise P.

Informative introduction to branding with good, accessible examples. - Clair B.

This class was short and sweet - a great mix of know-how and info. - Patty J.

This course helps to demystify brand building. I always think that it is hard to learn, but this course provides great explanation and examples along the way, which is really a preferred way of learning for me. Not sure for others, but I personally feel the instructor seems to sound tense. Nonetheless, she has demonstrated great enthusiasm towards the topic. Overall this is a great course to learn the basics of brand building. - Joyce L.

Fantastic info, really eye opening. It helps to know why you're doing something! - Chad B.
