Marketing with a Mission Masterclass: Finding Your Brand Voice
In this session you will learn how to create an authentic brand voice that speaks to your community.
Whether it’s on your website, in an email or blog, on a flyer, or in a Facebook post, your writing is communicating something about who your company is – and it’s not just about what you say, but how you say it. Ultimately the way you talk to your customers or stakeholders can be the deciding factor for whether or not people will buy into your organisation or business.
So come join brand voice crafter and wordsmith extraordinaire Bethany Joy for an intensive session on brand voice. Beth will be offering you a practical guide to shaping the language your business uses so that through it people get a better sense of your organisational vision and mission – and are inspired to engage with you.
You’ll leave with:
- New inspiration about the power of language and how it can make or break your business
- A simple but clearly defined brand voice for your business
- Some mini guidelines to help you consistently write in a way that brings that voice to life
What people say about Beth's Brand Voice Workshops...
“Well-presented, fascinating and hugely practical - every business should be thinking about this stuff.”
“Beth’s workshop was super engaging and informative, yet with a relaxed and friendly environment – I learnt a lot!”
“This session really opened my eyes and made me look at our company’s language in a completely new light. It’s made me realise how much needs to change, but in an encouraging way that’s also shown me what the positive opportunities are.”
Who is it for?
Social entrepreneurs who want to better leverage the social or environmental benefit of their business or organisation to drive growth and scale impact. You might run, or work for, an indie business, social enterprise or trading charity in Oxfordshire.
