Join Matt and Jeremy Korst. He's a mentor, the Executive VP and CMO at Avalara. Establishing an effective and actionable brand strategy is no easy task. It takes a dedicated team of strategic and creative experts who have a strong sense of customer empathy. It requires outside-in thinking, so it’s often quite valuable to bring in some external expertise to help facilitate the process. Now, while the strategy takes a tremendous effort to get right, the company-wide implementation and execution is even more important. Some of what they'll be covering includes:
- Creating a new category. How do you get prospects to be interested in doing something a new way.
- The importance of brand. How a brand strategy is much more than branding.
