At Mark’s marketing firm, GNGF, they are very proactive about thinking about their brand and how their agency is perceived. They’ve put a lot of thought into who their ideal client is, what makes them the best for that client, and what perceptions and feelings they want clients to have about working with them. When working with their law firm owner clients, they help them think through all of these things for their own firms.
Because of this amazing depth of experience, Mark is teaching us all about branding in today’s episode.
Oftentimes, when somebody says the word branding, they’re just thinking about a logo, font, letterhead, or even their firm’s name. However, branding is so much more than that. Entrepreneur.com defines it this way: “Your brand is the sum total of your customer’s perceptions, notions, and experience. It’s the face, personality, and values espoused by your business and everything in between.”
So, tune in to this episode and you’ll learn all about law firm branding, how to build a brand platform, and, once you have all this in place, what you should do with it.
- What law firm branding really is.
