Nail Your Brand Message

A laser focused one to one opportunity to identify and communicate your Wow Factor

We've been overwhelmed with applications for this programme and so for now we are closing it.  If you are interested please put your name on the waiting list and we will get back to you as soon as a place becomes available

  • Are you struggling to make sales ?   You know your products are amazing and customers are coming back for more but you are struggling to get recognised in the market place and it's feeling like you will never achieve the amount of sales you need.
  • You’ve tried all the usual strategies like ‘free shipping” and special offers but they just seem to be attracting crickets.
  • You know you can reach billions of people online but you are beginning to feel like it”s your fault that you are not and that is resulting in a big lack of confidence and motivation.

 

Well that’s not what I want for you.

 

I want you to be crystal clear with your unique brand message and to get it out there in a way that will have your people standing in line to buy your products.

Let's discover the real you.

  Building a successful brand is as much about who you are as it is about the products you sell so in this programme I plan to dig deep and to find out what really makes you tick. 

What do you love to do ? 

What makes you hide away in a corner? 

What is your true passion ?

What kind of lifestyle do you want?

To touch people emotionally with your brand (and that is what you need to do to be heard above the noise out there) it's hugely important that your messaging aligns with your values, speaks to the right people and tells the unique, technicolour story that is you.

In this programme I'm going to find out where that hot spot lies. Using an extensive and in depth questionnaire followed by a highly focussed one to one session we are going to get up close and personal with your brilliance and work out exactly how to communicate it through your brand.

 

Get heard above the noise ?

The global market value of natural and organic skin care products was expected to grow from almost 4.75 billion dollars in 2019 to roughly 7.2 billion dollars by 2024. (Statista).  This means that with your talents and your gorgeous products you have a fantastic opportunity, right now, to build the business of your dreams but it also means that the competition out there is fearsome. You need to be very clear on your path to success in terms of both your brand story and the most powerful ways to reach your people.  You also need to know exactly who those people are.

In order to thrive in today's market your brand story needs to be super special.  It isn't enough for your products to be natural and organic, sustainable or vegan you need a deep understanding of the customers you want to reach, how to emotionally engage with them and how to give them an irresistible reason to press that 'buy' button.

We know there are huge challenges out there and many of us are feeling insecure and nostalgic but the question is how to identify exactly where you fit, who you should be talking to and to find the best way to communicate your passion and authenticity through a strong brand story.

 

 

HERE IS WHAT YOU GET

In depth Questionnaire

I'm going to get you to take a real hard look at who you are, your past, your present, your strengths and your weaknesses, who you like to hang out with and what you love to do. In short, we are going to discover the unique elements in your personality and lifestyle that will colour in your brand.

 

One to One Strategy Session

Once I have got up close and personal with your questionnaire I am going to weave some magic and in a deeply focussed one to one, one hour Zoom session we are going to nail your brand message and build a story that will get your people queuing up to buy your products. (I promise you I'm really good at this !)

Happy Stories From My Clients

Melinda has provided invaluable guidance to us in all areas of our business, from direction of the company to product design. We would not be where we are without her expert assistance. Thanks Melinda!

 

The Camel Soap Factory was the Gulf Capital SME Awards 2014 winner. Products can be purchased in their web store or in branches of Dubai Al Jaber Gallery in Dubai and in other outlets worldwide. From starting production in a kitchen the company is now turning over in excess of $1,000000 a year!

 

Without a mentor is like walking blindly in circles, mentoring with the brilliant & very supportive Melinda has helped me take my vision to the next level, huge progress has been achieved. Thank you so much Melinda. You're my star

Meeting Melinda in France was one of the best business decisions Robert and I have ever made! Our brainstorming session was truly transformational. We went to France knowing we have a solid idea somewhere, but with serious doubts as to whether we can ever make it into a sustainable operation. Getting out of our office and into the French countryside was exactly what we needed. In the space of a few hours spent in a former convent, now cozy boutique hotel, we not only found a way out of a business dead end, but left with many solid actionable ideas and a newly found determination. Our investment in the trip paid off many times over and Melinda’s guidance was (and still is) en pointe!

A Bit About Me

Thirty years ago I started out  as a single mum with no qualifications and three under twos to support.  I wrote a list of what I could possibly earn money at and it was a very short list….. I could type, I could write great letters and  I could knit.

 

Since then I have built three six figure businesses – one in the craft industry, (I’ve written 30 internationally published books on crafts), one in designer knitwear (which I created and sold worldwide) and one with handmade soap and natural cosmetics. (from my kitchen I built what became the largest handmade soap company in the UK supplying all the supermarkets and major store groups.)

 

For the past 15 years I have coached over 200 entrepreneurs helping them find the courage and discipline to monetize their passions and build their own empires.  I found my true purpose and I love it.

 

Today I live in The People’s Republic of Facebook and in glorious South West France with my Standard Poodle, ‘Doris’ my cats ‘Chanel’ and 'Bertie' and my two chickens 'Sophie' and 'Marilyn'.

Key benefits from this programme.

  • The chance for you to get a really informed, objective and in depth view on your brand story from a highly acclaimed industry coach. Over the last 15 years I have coached over 200 entrepreneurs and helped many of them to build brilliant skincare brands.  I have learned a great deal from my clients and I can tell you for sure that above all, success starts with a highly powerful brand story and to create that you need an experienced and objective view.    Often, with all the time and effort we put into building our businesses we get too close and fail to see what is right in front of us;  the power of our own story and personality and how we can weave it into our brand and turn ordinary into extraordinary. 
  • You've done the work and your brand is out there but its just not gaining traction ? That could be because you don't know who your customer is or it might be that you are using other people's marketing techniques rather than your own. The marketing world is changing at a frightening pace and people are bored seeing the same old things.  In our strategy session we will not only nail your brand story but we will also work on a tailor made solution and the best methods you can use to shout about it.

 

  • Once you are absolutely clear on what your brand represents and how to communicate it you will make your customers feel as if they are part of your family, create brand loyalty, engage your customers and keep them inspired and keen to buy your products.

Three month’s free membership to The Fast Track To Success Hub. (value £105)

 

To be absolutely  honest, these days I very rarely offer one to one single sessions.  This is because, when I do, I put everything I have into them and they tend to be incredibly intense and use up all of my creative energy.  (I always need a nap after a session).   It’s very important to me that I stay in touch with my clients past and present and for this reason I set up a Private, paid membership called “Fast Track To Success Hub”.  This is run on a members only Facebook Group where I offer live Q&A sessions, 20 minute one to one coaching sessions and monthly workshops delivered by industry experts.  There are an amazing band of entrepreneurs on there who also share their experiences and give advice.

More Happy Stories From Some of My Clients

At the beginning of our very first Skype session, Melinda said: "Nicole, why don't you launch your own line of grooming products for horses?" Horses have been my life-long passion and this idea was probably right before my eyes - I just did not see it. That's how my venture into being an independent business woman started. If you are on your own, this is a life saver and absolutely invaluable. I also found out what I really like to do and what work I'd rather delegate

 
Working with Melinda helped me clarify my strategy, target customer and products through a series of actionable steps that set me on the right path to launching my business. Her approach is both creative and pragmatic, by asking thought provoking questions she instinctively knows when to challenge and when to support – this saved me from making mistakes which would have cost both time and money. The depth of experience Melinda has in all aspects of running a skincare business and the insight this brings is invaluable for anyone who is serious about building a brand.

I came to Melinda with essentially an idea that I needed guidance on how to turn it into a real business and that's exactly what I got. Never having worked in the industry, nor having any contacts within it,  meant that I was operating in a little bubble. Melinda helped me to focus on my goals, define my brand and guided me in how to scale my business. Her vast experience, contacts and her overall energy for supporting small businesses has made the entire program priceless for me!

Even More Happy Stories From My Clients

Melinda really understood me and my brand. She used her wide experience and was able to help me greatly.

 

The session was immensely useful. We covered the brand message, direction and Melinda answered queries that I had.

 

Amazed at how it exceeded my expectations. I couldn’t believe it was only an hour, we covered so much.

 

The session was a real eye-opener for me. It really focused all the thoughts and ideas in my head. I took away not only a focused brand message but an action plan as well.

 

I really wished I found Melinda at the beginning of my brand journey, I would have saved a lot of time and effort.

 

Marwa A. Qatar.

Wonderful course and Mentor really felt like my plans were thought about thoroughly with a great interest and wanted to provide value and actionable takeaways in order for me to clarify my vision around the brand.

 

The deeper insight into my own story and how this could translate into the brand identity more and all the add ons that could be possible within the business. No nonsense, good sense and a thinker outside the box. Very insightful and helpful.

 

Thank you Melinda, a pleasure to work with you too. A great investment made!

 

Emily K. UK.

Wonderful! Melinda was very engaging, insightful, personable, and honest.

I found the session was very useful. She provided excellent feedback on what I have done so far with my brand, what is missing, what to consider changing, and several areas to focus on to further my niche in the men's grooming world. I value her honest critique. I have a clearer direction now on where to take my brand and where not to waste money. Melinda inspired some hope that I can make it in this industry. I'm running around with a notebook in my hand as ideas pop into my head from her suggestions.

 

I feel the session definitely lived up to my expectations. Melinda is an expert in growing successful businesses and she know the struggles of those just starting out. That is very meaningful to me. I expected an honest assessment of what I have done so far, as well as some advice on what next, or what to improve. She hit it straight on with an honest assessment, what was missing, what to improve, and how and where to use my strengths. Melinda’s advice is invaluable to me. I am super excited to move forward.

I signed up for the Nail Your Brand Message program having had previous opportunities to listen to Melinda through webinars she had delivered in the past. This program was however going to be my first time ever working one-on-one with a coach of any kind, and a part of me was scared. What if Melinda thought my brand idea which was dear to my heart was "no good"? What if I was not able to nail my brand message? I felt vulnerable. Well my fears were unfounded. First of all Melinda made me feel at ease, I felt like I was chatting with someone with loads of experience and success, who genuinely wanted to see me also become successful. She was forthright with me if she thought something would not work and enthusiastic if she thought it would.

As I reflected on the call later I said to myself 'Melinda did it! She really is good at this!" I know I am just at the beginning of my journey but I am confident that with the suggestions you made during our call and with the additional support through the Fast Track Hub I will nail my brand message.

Being an entrepreneur isn’t easy. Let’s start with that. You have a clear business plan. Perfect! And, you’re an entrepreneur, which means you are intelligent, committed and equipped to work very hard.

While you are taking care of production, packaging, copy, web-development, photographs, social media, accounting, employees, taxes, and compliance... there is something else happening - CHANGE. The market is dynamic! It changes and so do you. It’s ok. It’s energy and growth in action. Melinda has the experience, intellect, and honesty to help you navigate shifting trends. She can help interpret how these changes relate to your brand. She will listen, then offer guidance to support an empowered mindset. As a brand mentor, Melinda, can be a very effective “true north” relationship in your toolbox.
