Brandology: The Study [Art] of Sales

  • redpepper

Selling is a critical part of every business’ success, yet the thought of “selling” strikes fear in the hearts of many creative business owners: fear of overselling, fear of rejection, fear of seeming like a used car salesman. The most effective sales people know that selling is a process of listening, empathy, and telling your story in a way that it resonates so fiercely with your targeted customer that they become your greatest sales tool. 

That’s the idea behind Brandology: The Study [Art] of Sales, which will be held at redpepper on June 17th from 8:30am-4pm. Many people think branding is a great logo, imagery, or tone of voice. All of those are an important part of your brand, but it is not your brand strategy. A great branding strategy permeates every aspect of your business and moves your targeted customers through a process that includes awareness, consideration, and preference (marketing) on through to purchase, loyalty, and advocacy (sales).

Brandology is about a better understanding of the process coming from people who have walked the walk. The day will be both inspiring and interactive, not just a day of talking heads. Our speakers are preparing for you to walk away with tools and exercises that will help you to better understand how to up your sales game. 

·  Nate Flemming // Co-founder of redpepper, who will speak to “Why Humans Do What We Do,” a discussion on 12 Archetypes.

·  Parker Gates // Co-CEO and Co-Founder of stok.d, who will provide us with some insight into Design Thinking and how it can help you empathize with your customer.

·  Gavin Ivester // An Independent Consultant who will help bring targeted focus to your brand through defining your mission, vision, values, and culture.

·  Karen Fairchild Westbrook // Founding Member of Grammy-winning group Little Big Town and Designer and Owner of Fair Child, in conversation with Libby Callaway of The Callaway, will discuss the power of storytelling in the music industry and how that can apply to fashion companies.

·  Patrick Woodyard // CEO and Co-Founder of Nisolo who knows that following through to sales execution is where many companies fall short. Patrick will help us understand the importance of specific sales tactics that align with our brand strategy.

·  Liza Graves // Co-Founder at StyleBlueprint.com who will speak to the importance of focus & consistency. How can we ensure that we move our customers through the process of selling without compromising our integrity?

We only have 100 spots. Don’t miss your chance to get up to two $60 tickets to Brandology, tickets that include lunch: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/brandology-the-study-art-of-sales-tickets-34035074825

Craig’s career has been dedicated to transforming commodities into desirables and turning consumer insights into disruptive, emotionally charged brands.

With his latest venture, hello products LLC, Craig and his team seek to disrupt and elevate the staid $40 billion global oral care category. Hello has taken the category by storm.  Craig conceived of the brand and took it from concept to commercialization in only 6 months.  Hello currently has distribution in approximately  25,000 top US retail doors and leading e-commerce sites, and has become the #2 natural oral care brand in the US in record time.  The brand has received inbound interest from established retailers and distributors from over 70 countries and the products have been globally lauded for their design sensibilities and cruelty-free approach.

 

Prior to hello, Craig co-founded the Kind Group. There, Craig conceived the eos brand, a line of women’s personal care products, featuring the ubiquitous spherical lip balm that turned the category on its head with an innovative, purse-search-friendly design and USDA-certified organic composition.

Craig’s history with transformational brands dates back to his role as SVP of Venture Development for the nation’s largest public retail REIT, Simon Property Group. There, Craig identified and led the initial investment in Method Products, the category-busting innovator of premium eco-conscious home and personal care products credited with shaking up the consumer products world.
