By now, if you write or market or create, oh, anything, you’ve heard of the elevator pitch. Forbes has covered ’em. Entrepreneur has covered ’em. This page has the best image choice ever for ’em. We can safely conclude that critter is here to stay.
But you don’t want to craft an elevator pitch for your brand. Ugh. Boring.
Nah. You want to craft a movie trailer for your brand.
Please note: I’m not saying go make one (though you could and it would be awesome and if you do please send me the link immediately.) But think about it. What’s your music? What’s the voiceover text? Does stuff blow up?
(Oh, man. Stuff should blow up. Unless maybe you sell Unexplodable Widgets. Then…yeah. Don’t do that.)
Why would I ask this?
Because you, buddy, should start thinking about how you want to manage perception of your brand.
Run it up the flagpole. See if it waves.
