DOES YOUR BRAND EVER EMBARRASS YOU
& TURN CLIENTS AWAY?
Is your brand putting your best business foot forward or is it doing you a disservice
& attracting all sorts of drama & unsuitable clients to you?
Not sure? You’re not the only one.
HERE’S A FEW SIGNS THAT
YOUR BRAND NEEDS SOME TLC:
• Your business looks or sounds just like every other person doing the same kind of work as you & you’re fading into the crowd.
• You want to hang your head in shame anytime someone says, “I saw your website!”
• You’re attracting clients that make you want to run, hide & abandon your business. Where are all the dreamy clients at?
• People who know you find your business online and say, It doesn’t look like you. You’re not really like that in real life.”
• Clients are shocked by your pricing & try to haggle you down because your brand doesn’t set the right price expectation.
But before I tell you how to fix all that…
WHAT IS A BRAND, REALLY?
You probably expect me to talk about your logo, don’t you?
A logo can be part of a brand, but it’s not the whole story – not by a long shot.
Ever wonder what your clients say about you when you’re not there? That’s your brand.
Your brand is what separates you from everyone else in the world who does the same kind of work that you do.
It’s how your brand is remembered when you’ve left the room.
BASICALLY, YOUR BRAND IS YOUR EVERYTHING WHEN IT COMES TO THE WORLD OF BUSINESS – SO THERE’S A FAIR BIT OF PRESSURE TO GET IT RIGHT, YEAH?
But it’s crazy hard to do that with the millions of ideas swirling around in your head.
• How do I make sure my brand is seriously “me”?
• How do I get it to look like “me” & sound like “me”?
• Which ideas do I pick?
• Who do I want my brand to appeal to?
• How do I action my ideas?
• What happens next?
• What haven’t I thought of?
Don’t worry, help is here!
HERE’S THE SECRET TO CONQUERING
YOUR BRAND ONCE & FOR ALL
The key to creating a brand that is aligned with you and your ideal clients is to do the foundational work. It’s not sexy, but it works. Yet way too few biz owners actually bother to do the legwork. Our business ideas are so exciting to us that we don’t stop & take a minute to make a plan of attack that’ll almost guarantee our success.
The trouble stems from the fact that we often think of the foundational stuff as being ‘boring’, but that’s so far from the truth. I think the real problem is that it actually involves stepping outside our comfort zone and feeling a wee bit vulnerable for a change…
But you know what? It’s worth it.
When Gina George, a passionate but confused graphic designer, knocked on my virtual door she felt stuck. She had tried so many ways to get unstuck, but couldn’t figure out how.
“I remember my first conversation with Anna. I was so hesitant and frustrated. I’d tried working with varying types of ‘mentors’ in the past, but nothing had worked. I felt overwhelmed, uninspired and as though my brand lacked direction and clarity. I guess the best way to describe it was that I was STUCK” – Gina
You see, while Gina had been wholeheartedly fired up and passionate about her work, she’d mistakenly thought that as a one-woman-team she didn’t have the time – or energy – for the fussy foundational work. So (and this is a trap a lot of entrepreneurs fall into), she simply skipped it.
Instead, she dove straight into the getting-your-hands-dirty creative awesomeness that talented graphic designers like Gina adore doing. And while Gina was kicking butt at being a brilliant graphic designer, her business was falling short in the confidence stakes. Behind the scenes, she questioned everything she did.
She loved what she created for her clients, but like the chef that doesn’t want to cook when she gets home, Gina hadn’t devoted the time and effort to building a brand she loved for herself.
“Honestly, I felt pretty blasé about my own brand. But as soon as I began working with Anna, it felt like everything started to come together. It was great because she understood how important it was for me to feel creatively fulfilled and inspired by the work I was producing while balancing that with being excited and motivated to move forward with my own brand,” Gina said.
Because, really, that was the missing link for Gina: spending some time setting up the foundations for her business, like a bad-ass brand that she adored, so she could then focus on what she does best: heart-fuelled graphic design.
“Anna helped me discover a completely new look, new name and new brand for my business. We were totally on the same page and I feel like finally my brand does my business – and my vision – justice”.
Today, Gina’s new business brand – Kindred Spirit Collective – radiates with juicy, heartfelt confidence. And more importantly, Gina is radiating with juicy, heartfelt confidence!
If you’ve got the balls and the blazing boldness to look within, get honest about what you want from your business, get real about what it will take, and get comfortable with the fact that you might not have all the answers just yet… well then, lady – you might just be able to change the whole freaking world.
Luckily, I’m on your side to help you build a brand that’ll knock their socks off.
WHY YOU CAN TRUST MY BRAND CONQUERING SKILLS?
I’m Anna Dower. I’m a designer, mentor and
Chief Boss-Lady at Design With Style.
I’m also the CEO and art director of digital magazine, ROOOAR & driving force behind The Creative Circle. It’s taken me 15 years to get here & now I’m sharing everything I’ve learned with you.
But, first, a business confession.
There’s something that people say to me a lot that kind of… grates on me, to put it mildly. Know what it is? They’ll say: ‘You’re so lucky that ROOOAR Magazine took off the way it did. You’re so lucky to have such a successful project.’
Hard work, hard-won wisdom, and branding the CRAP out of a little spark of an idea turned it into a blazing, big-time success. Not luck.
It may seem from the outside that ROOOAR was somewhat of an overnight hit – we landed amazing cover girls, we scored awesome sponsors and backers, we got some of the most kick-ass ladies on the interwebs to line up as contributors, we even got the personal stamp of approval from Richard Branson himself (at least, that’s how I took it when Virgin Australia asked us to be part of their inflight entertainment!).
Freaking kick-ass branding was one of the key components that made
ROOOAR seem like an overnight success.
Because of the brand we created, the mag was able to burst onto the stage, generate immediate traction, and seem like it belonged amongst all the big-time players (who, truth be told, had far more money and manpower than we did).

SINCE THE WORKSHOP I FEEL MUCH CLEARER ABOUT MY DIRECTION, MY OFFERS AND WHAT MY BRAND SHOULD LOOK LIKE. ANNA IS A GREAT FACILITATOR!
“The reason for signing up to the Conquer your Brand workshop was that my brand looked ok but there was no consistency and it never completely felt right. I had been DIY-ing everything for two years and it was time for me to get a better understanding of what a brand is and what my brand would look and feel like.
I really love the full day intensive format as it puts you 100% in the zone of working on your brand with no distractions. It meant that I was completely focused on what we were doing and I was serious about getting it done.
Anna is a great facilitator, she explains everything in a way that made sense to me and her knowledge is extensive. She’s really fun and easy to work with.
Since the workshop I feel much clearer about my direction, my offers and what my brand should look like. I’m so glad I participated and I highly recommend this workshop to anyone and everyone!” – BIANCA MCKENZIE

NEXT WORKSHOP: FRIDAY 24TH MARCH 2017.
ANNA’S WORKSHOP HELPED ME TO REALISE AN AREA WHERE I WAS GOING WRONG. I WAS SHUNNING EVERY FREAKING CLUE THAT WAS BEING PRESENTED TO ME. I WASN’T SEEING WHAT WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.
“Thanks, Anna for the beautiful print you’ve sent as a gift for attending your branding workshop. I love it and it will be a constant reminder of what I learned in the workshop. I have to say, the workshop was an interesting experience for me. For a very long time, I’ve been stuck trying to work out what my message is and who I wanted to work with. It’s something I’ve been working on constantly and it’s been frustrating the hell out of me.
Anna’s workshop helped me to realise an area where I was going wrong. I was shunning every freaking clue that was being presented to me. I wasn’t seeing what was right in front of me.
An aha moment for me was after Anna sent me my mood board. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t overly ecstatic about it when I first saw it, but when I saw the clothes I had been wearing during my yoga class lying on the bathroom floor the morning of our 1 on 1 catch up session were the exact same colour combination Anna had recommended, I looked around and saw those colours EVERYWHERE. They’d been in front of me the entire time. I just hadn’t seen them.
It also helped me to discover areas of my personality that I’ve been keeping under wraps. This is something I’ve been aware of for a while and was something I’d been working on, but Anna’s workshop gave me an opportunity to think out loud and to get an outside opinion.
So, if you’re thinking about doing Anna’s workshop I highly recommend it. There’s always something new to learn from others and it might just be the missing link you’re looking for.
I can also highly recommend that if you’re struggling with finding your identity, start looking within and learn more about who you really are. Don’t play to what you think your clients want. Be yourself and the right clients will come to you.” – KATHRYN EGGINS

I will then send you on your way with all your shiny new brand foundations along with resources on how to implement everything we’ve created.

THE BONUS TO THE DAY WAS ANNA’S PERSPECTIVE AND INSIGHT. WE DON’T ALWAYS SEE WHAT’S IN FRONT OF US AND ANNA HAS A REAL KNACK FOR GETTING TO THE POINT OF WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO SAY.
“I was really looking forward to the Conquer Your Brand workshop and it didn’t disappoint! Firstly, setting aside a day to work on the guts of what I want to create and how I want to be seen was awesome. I loved the format of alternating between group call & implementation and have a much clearer sense of what I want to create going forward. The bonus to the day was Anna’s perspective and insight. We can’t always see what’s in front of us and Anna has a real knack for getting to the point of what we’re trying to say. She also brings these ideas and feelings to life in design, something I could never do for myself. The CYB workshop is well worth the investment in time and dollars, and has set me on a clear path of how I want to be seen in the world. Thank you Anna!”
