Business Plan
The first step in the branding process is to understand a client's business strategy and short and long-term goals. This is accomplished through a thorough analysis of the business plan and by conducting a series of management interviews to fully comprehend the client's overall business objectives.

Understanding the competitive framework in which a company operates is critical in determining its unique selling proposition. Through the interview sessions, a communications audit of key competitor marketing efforts, and our knowledge of the financial services industry, we create parameters for positioning the organization within the marketplace.

Market Research
If a client has invested in broad-based market research or targeted perception audits, access to this information is extremely beneficial. Gleaning first-hand market insights from clients and prospects is an invaluable element in the overall branding process.
