The CIEE Message
A brand is more than a logo, a color, a typeface. As human beings, we are the total sum of how we look, how we sound, what we stand for and what we do. The same is true for a brand. At the heart of a brand is the commitment it makes and the promises it keeps. Messaging is how we communicate those two things. And effective messaging is one that is created with eyes turned to the external world:
- Why should people care about what we are doing? Why does it matter?
- Whose hearts and minds are we looking to capture?
- What do they want to know?
- Are the claims we are making believable?
Messaging will provide strategic focus to all of our communications. Whether it's copy for our website, materials for a tradeshow or an email to participants, remember that message consistency helps build a strong and engaging brand that attracts the attention of our audience.
