00:02:26.730 –> 00:02:28.200
Orsolya Herbein: Thank you so much for having me.
00:02:28.830 –> 00:02:42.540
Stacy Jones: Well, I love starting off our conversations by having our listeners learn a little bit more about what got you here today how did you come to found this agency and focus on brand and imagery and marketing.
00:02:43.800 –> 00:02:47.100
Orsolya Herbein: OK, so the story goes that.
00:02:50.430 –> 00:03:03.330
Orsolya Herbein: By trade i’m a graphic designer graduated from school work for a small agency and then ended up being an in house designer at a company for a long, long time and that became a little boring, so I started freelancing. And when I started freelancing I met matt Chris was my current business partner, and I will says go to designer. For a long time he’s been kind of a brand strategies, I think, since 2004 I met him in 2010 and from 10 to 16 I was his go to designer and, as I was working with matt I started to realize.
00:03:31.020 –> 00:03:38.940
Orsolya Herbein: That i’ve been kind of building brands myself, because my design was always very functional and I always was looking for something.
00:03:39.810 –> 00:03:44.790
Orsolya Herbein: To box myself enemy which is interesting, you know as a as an artist and the creative person.
00:03:45.390 –> 00:03:55.200
Orsolya Herbein: Literally sky’s the limit and I know for myself that if I don’t have any boxes or boundaries around me then i’ll just fit over that forever and nothing will ever get done.
00:03:55.710 –> 00:04:07.500
Orsolya Herbein: And to me design is so interesting because you know you have to make it work you are communicating right, but then you add branding to it, and now.
00:04:08.430 –> 00:04:21.930
Orsolya Herbein: Design has to kind of align with a strategic approach, and now you have a box and you, you know you have to you have to have all these things happen, you know it has to be functional has to be recasting you to an audience but.
00:04:22.380 –> 00:04:31.740
Orsolya Herbein: You also have to make it beautiful and to me that’s, a challenge that I really enjoy and strive in to a point that I went to.
00:04:32.550 –> 00:04:37.320
Orsolya Herbein: dinner oh there’s an art garage and they have just some random art classes and and.
00:04:37.950 –> 00:04:47.340
Orsolya Herbein: i’m unable to do just art anymore, like the i’m totally ruined as an artist, because I would go down there, and people are like let’s mess around with ink and.
00:04:47.730 –> 00:04:59.490
Orsolya Herbein: just see the medium and what it can do and i’m like I think this can be a mother’s day gift for my mom like everything has a purpose or function i’m like can just do art for the fun of it anymore.
00:04:59.850 –> 00:05:08.580
Orsolya Herbein: Because i’m looking for those boundaries and everything like okay I can’t just waste my time fiddling around with ink if it doesn’t have some sort of an outcome.
00:05:09.090 –> 00:05:19.170
Orsolya Herbein: Over like I can use this as a birthday gift or a mother’s day gift or something you know so it’s it’s it’s really funny but that’s kind of how it started and and.
00:05:19.860 –> 00:05:35.370
Orsolya Herbein: matt asked me in 2015 if I wanted to become his exit plan, essentially, and we put our businesses together by then, I had a pretty healthy freelance business and that’s how we started and.
00:05:35.400 –> 00:05:36.060
Stacy Jones: that’s awesome.
00:05:38.220 –> 00:05:57.240
Stacy Jones: And when you’re working with clients now, what do you do to get the ball rolling, how do you figure out where to focus that art is an expression versus, you know as just a thing for the brand itself, how do you corral them in and get the process going.
00:05:58.170 –> 00:06:07.920
Orsolya Herbein: Well, the number one strategy and everybody should and could be able to even utilize this, you know as as a very useful advice I thing.
00:06:08.550 –> 00:06:22.080
Orsolya Herbein: Is that your brand isn’t built for you Okay, if your brand has a functionality, that it needs to engage an audience then your brand is built for your audience, so the number one strategy that.
00:06:23.460 –> 00:06:34.950
Orsolya Herbein: We base everything on is to build brands for our customers ideal customer right, so we figure out, you know let’s say there’s a plumbing business.
00:06:35.640 –> 00:06:48.090
Orsolya Herbein: You know they have all these customers and we usually ask them tell us about your best customer or it’s beth okay it’s bad so let’s learn about beth Why is beth grade.
00:06:49.590 –> 00:06:59.460
Orsolya Herbein: And, and we really dive into the ideal customer and figure out how we can bring in more I usually stayed the question I asked a question.
00:07:00.810 –> 00:07:10.890
Orsolya Herbein: From my clients, can you imagine if you had 100 beth’s walking in the door, tomorrow, where would your business be and they just wow.
00:07:11.580 –> 00:07:26.640
Orsolya Herbein: That would be amazing and i’m like that’s what we’re doing that’s what we’re doing and we’re going to build a brand that engages all the beth is to come in and work with you and that’s really the number one strategy, you know, to build brands that.
00:07:28.350 –> 00:07:34.560
Orsolya Herbein: Speak to the needs and desires and the value value what that ideal customer values.
00:07:35.670 –> 00:07:49.230
Orsolya Herbein: Very quickly, because they’re not going to give you time, so we need to have that very clearly stated with the message and the image to make that immediate connection, so they don’t have to think because they want.
00:07:50.220 –> 00:08:01.410
Stacy Jones: And this applies to not just any type of brand but also services and then even into B2B it doesn’t have to be a B2C landscape that you’re talking about.
00:08:02.010 –> 00:08:19.710
Orsolya Herbein: Absolutely absolutely everybody every business, who has a customer has a best customer and there’s a reason for that and those customers can be replicated internally we can intentionally go after those best customers and build a business for them.
00:08:20.790 –> 00:08:35.760
Stacy Jones: what’s The next step that you do so you’ve identified that here is amy your perfect person that you want to build around and replicate you want to marching army of amy’s What do you do after that identification.
00:08:37.110 –> 00:08:56.880
Orsolya Herbein: So the next question is really what does amy want right and in terms of your services right, so if you’re a plumber, or if you are a landscaper or, if you are a B2B let’s say, do you do commercial construction and amy’s a property manager or something like that.
00:08:58.350 –> 00:09:04.320
Orsolya Herbein: You know, the question is, what does amy want and there’s different answers in in in every business right.
00:09:07.260 –> 00:09:17.910
Orsolya Herbein: Sometimes you could be the same business, but your ideal customer might value different things just because you have some strength in certain things right, so you have to align the strength.
00:09:18.390 –> 00:09:30.240
Orsolya Herbein: The vision, the goal and what the customer runs into one unified language that will resonate with amy right so really, really clearly stating what.
00:09:30.690 –> 00:09:45.180
Orsolya Herbein: Things are and what the value is so, for example, if amy is a person who really values time saving and you provide that on some level or they really value, a partnership, where a relationship and any know.
00:09:46.200 –> 00:09:47.640
Orsolya Herbein: you’re no longer just.
00:09:49.440 –> 00:09:58.770
Orsolya Herbein: You know competing on transactional elements but you’re you know you you’re providing a partnership, a trusted relationship that needs to be built.
00:09:59.040 –> 00:10:15.060
Orsolya Herbein: So you know that’s that’s something that can be woven into that high level messaging so amy can immediately connect with the with the business and say oh wait where has this been all my life now i’m reading on and everything else so matter afterwards.
00:10:15.870 –> 00:10:33.270
Stacy Jones: And my assumption is as you’re doing this you’re looking at replicating this across all your points of marketing so whether it’s your website, whether it’s your brochures, whether it’s your storefront However, you are creating this, you are making sure it’s one continuous message.
00:10:33.630 –> 00:10:39.960
Orsolya Herbein: Absolutely and and there’s a very specific reason for that and that is.
00:10:41.880 –> 00:10:42.660
Orsolya Herbein: We.
00:10:44.220 –> 00:10:54.810
Orsolya Herbein: brands, need to be memorable they need to be something that you can retain as a market need the market can retaining right, so there are.
00:10:55.650 –> 00:11:05.010
Orsolya Herbein: Businesses in a few of them that have loads of money loads of cash and they can saturate the market by coming out of the tap you know, like.
00:11:05.280 –> 00:11:14.220
Orsolya Herbein: Everywhere you turn Everywhere you go you see a truck ovi You see, in your mailbox You see, on your local commercials or whatever, I mean they’re everywhere.
00:11:14.550 –> 00:11:20.370
Orsolya Herbein: And that’s how you retain it because they’re all over the place you’ve seen them all around so that’s called frequency.
00:11:21.060 –> 00:11:32.340
Orsolya Herbein: But if you don’t have a large amount of budget to saturate the market with being everywhere, because that cost a lot of money, the next best thing you can do is to make all your materials consistent.
00:11:33.450 –> 00:11:43.200
Orsolya Herbein: You know, because if I see a truck and i’m intrigued and i’m intrigued enough to retain the the URL or the name of the business and I looked him up.
00:11:43.740 –> 00:11:51.660
Orsolya Herbein: i’ve seen a truck now I look them up on our website, I see the website me look the same they feel the same they say the same.
00:11:51.990 –> 00:12:03.330
Orsolya Herbein: Now i’ve seen it twice and i’ll check them out of social media, then I need to Google reviews and everything is in alignment now i’ve seen them, three, four or five times in a row and i’m starting to okay.
00:12:03.900 –> 00:12:12.000
Orsolya Herbein: it’s resonating XIV business is all about this and it’s consistent across the board, not only that that consistency allows me to trust the brand.
00:12:12.480 –> 00:12:33.210
Orsolya Herbein: So even if you’re a brand with a loads of cash that you can saturate the market for me when I come in and validate you know I want that consistent experience across all your materials, because trust is the number one way to to you know that leads to engagement, so when you are consistent.
00:12:34.380 –> 00:12:55.020
Orsolya Herbein: With messaging and imaging everywhere it’s easier for me trust, because we learn from national brands national brands are very, very strategic about that and that’s actually a very small thing that small business can apply, you know to to them, just to appear consistent across the board.
00:12:56.100 –> 00:13:11.910
Stacy Jones: Is there anything else, that they should be doing with this so now you have made sure that your messaging is consistent, you have made sure that it is anywhere and everywhere in the same manner, what is the next step from there.
00:13:13.110 –> 00:13:21.180
Orsolya Herbein: Well, you could have the best brand right, and you can have the best marketing strategy and marketing tactics to put your brand out there.
00:13:21.870 –> 00:13:37.050
Orsolya Herbein: and your best brand is engaging the audience to get these loads of ideal customers in, and you can flop it on customer experience like this right so that’s why at brand three we always look at marketing, which is what our customer wants.
00:13:38.100 –> 00:13:43.320
Orsolya Herbein: In terms of brand marketing and customer experience, all together, because.
00:13:44.550 –> 00:13:48.150
Orsolya Herbein: Any one of which is ignored, you can fail right.
00:13:48.510 –> 00:13:57.390
Orsolya Herbein: So you know there’s a lot of times, one of our best customers for us as a business, who doesn’t have a great brand because they just didn’t think about strategically align our brand.
00:13:57.630 –> 00:14:08.190
Orsolya Herbein: But they have created customer reviews right so that’s an easy fix because what happened, what happens is they have the audience reviews, but the perception of what you see.
00:14:08.550 –> 00:14:17.790
Orsolya Herbein: Is in professional it doesn’t engage the audience it’s not trusted so they don’t look the way they.
00:14:18.720 –> 00:14:22.320
Orsolya Herbein: You know they don’t their brands don’t reflect the greatness of their.
00:14:22.890 –> 00:14:31.110
Orsolya Herbein: quality of their products and services right so that’s that’s a super easy fix in our role, then we love doing it it’s much harder when you have a.
00:14:31.680 –> 00:14:40.710
Orsolya Herbein: Recent look and you’ve been kind of marketing and getting customers, but you have one and two star reviews that’s a lot harder for me to fix because that kind of.
00:14:41.100 –> 00:14:46.560
Orsolya Herbein: indicates some internal issues you have a lot of turnover, you know something wrong with your culture internally.
00:14:46.920 –> 00:14:58.530
Orsolya Herbein: You know you have to remember brand is resonating internally and externally externally towards marketing and engaging or prospects and customers and then internally it’s to retain.
00:14:59.280 –> 00:15:16.440
Orsolya Herbein: Your employees recruit the right and ideal employees and to deliver an experience that your customers are expecting based on the brand promise that you have right so that’s the third step is to ensure that you.
00:15:18.300 –> 00:15:23.490
Orsolya Herbein: By all means, try to exceed expectations and the very least.
00:15:24.390 –> 00:15:34.500
Orsolya Herbein: deliver the promise that you’re making so if your promise is a trusted relationship then work hard to be that trusted partner for your customers if yours.
00:15:34.800 –> 00:15:44.070
Orsolya Herbein: is exceptional outdoor living then you’re going to work hard and provide exceptional outdoor living experiences for your customers when every step of the way as they’re walking around.
00:15:44.610 –> 00:15:53.370
Orsolya Herbein: You know the journey be being your customers and some some businesses that’s a shorter transaction some businesses retaining customers for years to come.
00:15:53.910 –> 00:16:05.340
Orsolya Herbein: And you know that’s a longer customer journey, where you have to kind of weigh each touch point against that promise and making sure that your employees are empowered to deliver that experience.
00:16:06.120 –> 00:16:10.920
Stacy Jones: Are there any mistakes along the way that you see that are very common that people make.
00:16:13.110 –> 00:16:23.070
Orsolya Herbein: there’s a lot of mistakes number one mistake, I think, in a small business marketing world is to just skip the strategy skip branding and just go straight to tactics.
00:16:23.520 –> 00:16:32.970
Orsolya Herbein: If you ask us an average small business owners like wow So what do you think marketing is they’re going to tell you I see your website it’s direct mail it’s all that.
00:16:33.390 –> 00:16:46.200
Orsolya Herbein: And you know you walk into a small business world what’s happening, they have the seo guy who never communicated to the web guy who never communicated to the social media intern who they hired and you know.
00:16:46.560 –> 00:16:57.870
Orsolya Herbein: Whenever communicates to the business owners and i’m just saying it’s all over the place, you know the silo tactics that are are disjointed and not working in sync.
00:16:58.470 –> 00:17:03.570
Orsolya Herbein: are causing a tremendous amount of marketing waste, and you know when i’m telling you.
00:17:04.290 –> 00:17:20.370
Orsolya Herbein: You know your your marketing budget can you know you can literally be wasting 80% of that budget by throwing in a tactics without really having that strong foundation of a brand that.
00:17:21.270 –> 00:17:27.750
Orsolya Herbein: has the power to engage an audience, because you know you just throw yourself at the way you are without making it alignment.
00:17:28.860 –> 00:17:35.160
Orsolya Herbein: People walk by it and they don’t get it and they don’t understand and it’s not for them you’re not speaking their language I don’t care that your family on.
00:17:35.820 –> 00:17:46.770
Orsolya Herbein: You know, because at the first point of engagement, all I care about is what’s in it for me and then I can care that your family on if I have three businesses coming at me what I need what I want.
00:17:47.550 –> 00:17:57.030
Orsolya Herbein: And why don’t let me spend me Leon i’ll might choose that one but that’s not very starts, whatever it starts is what’s in it, for me, because that I can connect to very quickly.
00:17:57.540 –> 00:18:10.950
Orsolya Herbein: You know, without me thinking and then I can investigate and learn more about you and make a decision to do business with you but throwing yourself out with that strategy, it can, can you know, result in a lot of wasted.
00:18:12.090 –> 00:18:12.510
Orsolya Herbein: money.
00:18:12.720 –> 00:18:14.850
Orsolya Herbein: And that’s all kind of what we are here to stop.
00:18:15.180 –> 00:18:21.240
Stacy Jones: And it’s more than just the wasted money on your marketing tactics it’s also the wasted money if your marketing team.
00:18:21.570 –> 00:18:38.550
Stacy Jones: And the individuals who are spending hours, who are pushing and promoting and going through all of these steps, because you have true human hours that go into backing, all of this, so if you have someone who is not aiming at the right goal, then you’re just any wheels there to.
00:18:39.300 –> 00:18:49.140
Orsolya Herbein: Exactly no that’s that’s exactly right it’s it’s a tremendous amount of waste, essentially, so you know as far as mistakes, you know.
00:18:50.280 –> 00:19:07.350
Orsolya Herbein: That those siloed individualized you know tactics and I know the business owners are feeling the pain of it’s not working it’s not creating traction, and the reason why is because you haven’t thought about intentionally building a brand that engages an audience that you’re after.
00:19:08.340 –> 00:19:10.170
Stacy Jones: What are more mistakes that people make.
00:19:14.220 –> 00:19:27.300
Orsolya Herbein: Well it’s probably on the experience side you know they’ll do all the right things, and then they just don’t deliver the right experience you know, building a culture isn’t for the faint of heart, you know and every business owner knows that.
00:19:28.590 –> 00:19:29.040
Orsolya Herbein: But.
00:19:30.360 –> 00:19:36.330
Orsolya Herbein: And also, you know, not knowing what exactly we are promising to deliver, you know because.
00:19:37.860 –> 00:19:47.070
Orsolya Herbein: it’s one thing that maybe the business owner has in their mind, but it hasn’t been materialized in some sort of way that the team can kind of align with that right.
00:19:47.550 –> 00:19:53.400
Orsolya Herbein: And they’re all just kind of doing their J O B and there really is in.
00:19:54.270 –> 00:20:02.340
Orsolya Herbein: buying into the goals and visions of the business because they don’t know they are not aware they’re unable to deliver that experience and then.
00:20:02.670 –> 00:20:14.400
Orsolya Herbein: we’re getting those bad reviews and you know that’s today’s day and age is detrimental, you know just you know one customer can destroy a business.
00:20:15.330 –> 00:20:27.030
Orsolya Herbein: like this, you know and not knowing how to respond to that or responding to it in the wrong way is yeah those are those are hard hard stuff so you know delivering.
00:20:28.230 –> 00:20:30.360
Orsolya Herbein: The experiences is something that’s.
00:20:32.340 –> 00:20:43.140
Orsolya Herbein: Very much can be intentional and deliberate and and you know something that’s designed and not just left the chances like oh hoping this new employee will do the tricks.
00:20:43.620 –> 00:20:53.760
Orsolya Herbein: Not without training and not without them really buying into the mission and goals and vision of the company and understanding what their job is by delivering that promise.
00:20:54.360 –> 00:21:02.760
Stacy Jones: And so now you just switched it where it’s not just targeting amy where you’re trying to build this whole package of branding and.
00:21:03.330 –> 00:21:08.700
Stacy Jones: storytelling you’re actually bringing this also and saying we have to do this inside of businesses too.
00:21:09.150 –> 00:21:21.120
Stacy Jones: Because if your employees are on the same page, not only are they not communicating to the amy’s of the world, but they’re miss communicating internally to and you’re opening yourself up to your bad reviews coming from that side as well.
00:21:22.050 –> 00:21:28.740
Orsolya Herbein: Absolutely, and I know that your your listeners can relate to this, and I am very much relating to this.
00:21:29.850 –> 00:21:36.810
Orsolya Herbein: there’s nothing worse than hiring someone pouring into that person and then watching them goal.
00:21:37.530 –> 00:21:47.310
Orsolya Herbein: it’s you know talking about race right that is so painful losing employees, you know, bringing on new employees that is really hard.
00:21:47.820 –> 00:21:58.590
Orsolya Herbein: And and and that’s why that is also part of the plan, because you need a team that will be able to take your vision.

00:25:51.150 –> 00:25:51.960
Orsolya Herbein: um.
00:25:53.940 –> 00:26:02.700
Orsolya Herbein: Maybe me personally for me this this this is is one advice that I, I could think would be beneficial.
00:26:03.210 –> 00:26:13.110
Orsolya Herbein: Is that I know that there’s all kinds of different personality traits you know, some people are stronger here meeker there and blah blah blah, we all have our strengths.
00:26:13.620 –> 00:26:21.750
Orsolya Herbein: One of my greatest strength, I believe, is empathy you know, being able to step into other people’s shoes and that’s What helps me build these brands.
00:26:22.140 –> 00:26:33.930
Orsolya Herbein: Because whenever a client comes and talks to me I empathize with them, but I also step into the shoes of their audience and see from the outside, in right and.
00:26:34.680 –> 00:26:43.020
Orsolya Herbein: While I believe empathy is something that i’ve been blessed with, I also believe that it can be practiced you know I encourage my.
00:26:44.760 –> 00:26:52.800
Orsolya Herbein: My clients and also your listeners to to to really try to have the point of view.
00:26:53.100 –> 00:27:06.240
Orsolya Herbein: of others, you know my business partner, has a great analogy for for this just imagine that your business is a boss and you’re the bus driver you’re driving the bus he had the point of view of a bus driver, he said what’s ahead of you.
00:27:07.050 –> 00:27:16.950
Orsolya Herbein: You have passengers which are your clients on the boss, but you don’t really know what the bus ride feels like you know well, you don’t know what the bus looks like from the outside, when you’re driving.
00:27:17.640 –> 00:27:26.700
Orsolya Herbein: So sometimes it’s good to stop the bus get off and look at it and talk to all your passengers and kind of just ask and investigate.
00:27:27.120 –> 00:27:35.100
Orsolya Herbein: On what the experience looks like and and really not in a guided way we’re doing this right know how does it feel.
00:27:35.430 –> 00:27:43.260
Orsolya Herbein: How, you know tell us why you know we are good at this or not good at this What could we improve things like that just having that that.
00:27:44.100 –> 00:27:52.920
Orsolya Herbein: That feedback and and you being able to to to get off the bus and look at your business from the outside Okay, what if I was my client.
Orsolya Herbein: You know, and just kind of put all your biases and technical lingo aside and really be a customer.
Orsolya Herbein: And then it will help you see what messaging would resonate better you know, sometimes business owners have a very technical service, for example, and they muddied the water with very technical lingo that doesn’t mean anything to the market, you know the market just wants it.
Orsolya Herbein: And they are business owners themselves, they don’t know anything about gigabytes or frequencies or whatever, have you like you know.
Orsolya Herbein: Space or email or any of that that kind of language and all you need to say to them is that, let us take the it burden off your shoulder.
Orsolya Herbein: and gain a trusted partner to to to take that so you can focus on what you’re doing best money your business, you know, and you don’t have to worry about all that.
Orsolya Herbein: Technology stuff so that language will resonate much better than all we have 900 servers and 750 terabytes you know.
Stacy Jones: It doesn’t mean anything.
Stacy Jones: Listen it sounded great to the person saying it.
Stacy Jones: But the customers like How does that actually benefit me I don’t even get that world, this is your world to be.
Orsolya Herbein: Exactly exactly so you know I my My advice would be is, if you can practice empathy and stepping in a shooter shoes of others, especially when it comes to your business and employees.
Orsolya Herbein: And what does it feel like to work for you, what does it feel like to be one of your customers, what do they see when they look from the outside, in.
Orsolya Herbein: And, and even your employees, what do they see when they look from the inside, in you know, then, and what did they see and and and and I think it will help you make better choices and.
