Unique in the world, Verbal Branding is not only (and by far) the best way to sell and communicate through the spoken word, but also a redefined branding platform to simultaneously improve sales, internal culture, and brand density.
You’ll learn how to position your firm to be “different and better”; use branding to inform daily, minute-by-minute business processes, including how to unify Sales and Marketing; and, have employees and the public more easily gravitate to your brand. The goals for Verbal Branding are simple: marginalize the competition and dominate the selling landscape.
