How to avoid Multiple, Corporate, Personality Disorder

On the face of it, finding the perfect words to articulate a distinctive, memorable brand proposition sounds easy.

But if you cast a critical eye over a dozen corporate websites, the difficulty becomes clear. Being distinctive, authentic and compelling is really hard.

Unfortunately, there’s often a can of worms lurking beneath the innocuous-sounding questions – Who are we? What do we do? Why do we do it?

Discussing these questions can teach you a lot about your team, but without a more objective, professional process, the resulting statement is often interchangeable with innumerable other corporate brands.

This isn’t a disaster, blending into a beige background never killed anyone. But if you want a brand proposition that delivers a competitive edge, you’re going to have to do better.

A clear proposition is like a lighthouse that all your brand activity can be measured against for direction and relevance, a rule of thumb that guides your course.

For your audience, it’s the encapsulation of your personality, a shorthand that resonates with years of evolutionary instinct to make snap judgements about the world.

This guide examines how to create a brand proposition that emphasises the qualities that make you unique and, crucially, differentiate you from everyone else.
