Did you miss our live webinar event? If so, you may not know that 97% of community-based marketing is ineffective, that 70% of retail spending happens after 6pm, or that marketing phrases like “something for everyone,” “beauty and heritage,” and “recreational paradise” should never be used. If your community needs to set itself apart from everywhere else, your and your marketing, tourism, and economic development teams would greatly benefit from viewing this webinar recording.

“Branding” is the keyword of the decade, but what does it really mean? Most people don’t understand what a brand really is or how to actually build one. This recorded presentation demystifies and explains the process of branding for umbrella organizations (multiple communities), cities, downtowns, and marketing professionals. Through case histories, dozens of photos, and humorous stories, attendees will learn what it takes to create a successful brand, how to make it obvious, and how that translates to cash!

The presenter, Roger Brooks, is one of North America’s most sought after experts in the creation of great destinations, and has worked with nearly 1000 communities, successfully guiding them in their community branding, revitalization and marketing efforts. Roger is well known for energizing communities into action—providing ideas they can implement today to make a difference tomorrow.
