A HUGE thank you to the incredible guest speaker Elle Moss (Drew London) for joining us today on Episode 2 of Live + Learn this morning. It really kicked off our day and got our creative juices and coffee (8.30am episode) flowing!
In this episode, we discuss and got our fabulous guests thinking practically about What is a brand archetype?
There are twelve archetypes. All brands should focus on having two / maybe three archetypes. The main two being your primary archetype – which is your outward facing brand the one you talk to customers with, that they resonate with and become loyal customers. The secondary archetype – is your inward facing brand, how you speak to your team members, how you run one-to-ones, how you hire new team members.
These twelve archetypes, which should resonate through your strategy, voice (copy) and visuals. We discuss brands that embody these archetypes also the strengths and challenges for each of these archetypes.
