Revitalizing Your Brand: Strategies for a Fresh Start

In today’s ever-evolving business landscape, staying relevant and resonating with your target audience is crucial for the success and longevity of your brand or company. As you get ready for the next quarter in the year, consider revitalizing Your Brand Strategies for a Fresh Start. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is by refreshing your brand. In this article presented to you by Lucy, for Icy Coaching & Consulting, we will explore eight strategies that can breathe new life into your brand and help you connect with your audience on a deeper level.

Craft a Strong Brand Message Your brand’s message should be a reflection of your company’s values, mission, and vision. Take the time to review and revise your brand’s messaging to ensure it aligns with your current objectives and speaks to your audience’s aspirations and pain points. A well-crafted brand message not only conveys what your company stands for but also creates an emotional connection with your customers, fostering loyalty and trust.

Harness Social Media Diversify your brand’s online presence by actively engaging with your audience on various social media platforms. Tailor your content to suit each platform’s unique audience and features, allowing you to connect with a broader and more diverse audience. Social media isn’t just about posting content; it’s about fostering two-way communication with your customers, listening to their feedback, and adapting your brand’s approach accordingly. By utilizing the power of social media, you can not only increase brand awareness but also strengthen customer relationships.

Digitally Organize Your Documents Organizing your marketing documents is crucial for efficient business operations, and converting these documents into PDF format is a smart strategy. Using a PDF format ensures that your content remains consistent in terms of formatting and is easily shareable across various devices and platforms. Whether you need to create a PDF online from scratch or convert an existing file, like a Microsoft Word document, into a PDF, a reliable PDF maker tool is indispensable. This approach not only streamlines the sharing process but also enhances the professionalism of your documents.

Remake Your Website Your website is often the first point of contact for potential customers. Ensure it is visually appealing, user-friendly, and up-to-date with the latest information about your products or services. A well-designed website can leave a lasting impression on visitors. Beyond aesthetics, prioritize user experience by optimizing page load times, navigation, and mobile responsiveness. A user-friendly website not only attracts visitors but also converts them into customers, ultimately contributing to your brand’s success.

Partnering with Influencers and Ambassadors Collaborate is the new competition. Collaborate with influencers or brand ambassadors in your industry to promote your products or services. Their authentic endorsements can significantly impact your brand’s credibility and reach, helping you tap into new customer segments. Influencer marketing is a powerful tool for expanding your brand’s reach. However, choose influencers whose values align with your brand to ensure authenticity and resonance with their followers. Establishing genuine partnerships can lead to long-term brand growth.

Outline Your Core Values Clearly define your brand’s core values and communicate them consistently across all touch-points. These values serve as the foundation of your brand’s identity and can create a strong emotional connection with your audience. Authenticity is key when conveying your core values. Make sure your actions align with your stated values, and don’t be afraid to take a stand on issues that matter to your customers. When customers see your brand living its values, they are more likely to trust and engage with you.

Amplify Public Relations Invest in public relations efforts to increase your brand’s visibility and reputation. Engage with media outlets, industry publications, and influencers to share your brand’s story and achievements, building trust and credibility. Effective public relations can shape the narrative around your brand, positioning you as an industry leader and a trusted source of information. Be proactive in seeking out opportunities to share your expertise and experiences, both online and offline.

Innovate Your Approach to Advertising Explore innovative advertising techniques that align with your brand’s goals and target audience. From immersive experiences to different forms of interactive content, staying at the forefront of advertising trends can set your brand apart from the competition. Innovation in advertising not only captures the attention of potential customers but also demonstrates your brand’s willingness to evolve and adapt to changing consumer preferences. Embrace creativity and experimentation to create memorable and impactful advertising campaigns.

Refreshing your company’s brand is a strategic move that can reinvigorate your business and capture the attention of both existing and potential customers. By crafting a compelling brand message, harnessing the power of social media, streamlining marketing collateral, etc., you can breathe new life into your brand and thrive in today’s competitive marketplace. Don’t hesitate to embark on this exciting journey of brand revitalization, and watch your company soar to new heights of success.

3 Ways to Maximize Any Publicity You Get

After securing hundreds of publicity features for my clients over the years, I can tell you one media feature can create a new world of opportunities for you.  Getting featured in any media is a great time to bank on that energy to create more like it. There is no such thing as too much noise.  PR is about publicity, so tell the world about it. Below are 3 ways to maximize any publicity you get.



Social currency is a powerful thing. But here is the truth: special people like to feel special. Immediately you’ve secured any feature, the first thing you want to do is tell your VIP’s.  Email, phone calls, you can go old-fashioned and make copies of it and mail it to your family so they have a copy to brag about. Attach the image or link of the feature to an email to them. Be sure to let them know they are first in on this news. Let them feel your excitement about sharing this special news with them FIRST. People pay to be insiders, make your list/tribe feel special. And then, 6-12 hours later tell the whole world. Use social media, e-blast, and get 5-10 of your champions to re-tweet the same image or link. Become a trend in your inner circle for the day. Be sure to make noise for at least 2 weeks straight.



Social media is about consistency and connecting to influencers. Once you secure a solid media feature, spend the day engaging with the editor and the publication on social media. Tag them on your announcement of the feature at least 3 times in a day. It will let the writer/publication know you are excited about the feature plus, you’re showing the value of your own social currency. You can also tag other social media influencers or bloggers that compliment your brand. You should also take phrases, sound bites, or key moments of the feature and share it all day using a hashtag that works for your brand. Make sure you schedule them at integral times of day when your fans/followers are known to be online (check your account insights for this.) Create digital graphics of your quotes to share on instagram, record a video of you reading the feature and share it online. Get creative.



Telling other media you are interested in being featured on about your new media feature, is a good way to stay on their radar. You should have about 5-10 media contacts you’re building relationships with personally. Send an email to each one telling them about the feature and to consider you for a possible story or feature in their upcoming issue. Should you do this, it’s a good idea to have 3-4 fresh story ideas that will be of interest to their own publication. This can get their wheels turning on story angles that could get you even more publicity. Also tag them on instagram or twitter about the feature and use the appropriate industry hashtags.

I look forward to these tips helping you maximize any media exposure you get moving forward. Public Relations is about relating to the public, RELATE and build that relationship. That’s what it’s about. Have fun telling your story.

#1 Way To Become The Next Show Host SUPERSTAR!

#1 Way To Become The Next Oprah, Wendy or Mo Abudu

If this caught your attention, then you must have practiced being the next Oprah, Wendy or Mo Abudu with your own TV show. There is a new app in town that is making people celebrities almost instantly. If you’ve heard of it and haven’t activated it, I hope this gets you excited about it. And if you haven’t heard of it, this is your chance to get on the ground level of what is the new wave of social media. Yes, another new APP to add to our long list of social media connections. THIS ONE IS WORTH IT.

Hello everyone say a big HEY to the new free app PERISCOPE! “Where people explore the world through your eyes”, LIVE!


Periscope is a free app that allows you to stream and interact live with your mobile phone or tablet from anywhere is the world, with anyone in the world. Imagine how you watch certain stations religiously; think about your own periscope being a station “Live With Tolu”. I can log in every Tuesday at 1pm and know that you will be on, sharing whatever “your thing is” at that time. If you have great content, you can have viewers who will come regularly for your “program.


You can be intentional and strategic about how you use it. Develop your own show idea, Talk show, comedy, daily gist, sight seeing around town, restaurant review, business tips, life of a fashion blogger, relationship advice or as I have, Life of a Serial Entrepreneur. Find me @Yetunde on periscope. I share my experiences, lessons, ups and downs of running my business with the world. All periscopes are only available for 24 hours and you build engagement by accumulating heartthrobs and followers (people simply double tap their screens to give you hearts. It’s the equivalent of likes). With Periscope you can also choose to allow only your followers watch your live feed. It can also be open to the world. It’s your choice.


Yes, in less than 5 months, there are incredible people that have used and are using periscope to build their brand and a name for themselves. If you have a niche with great content and an engaging personality, people tune in to watch your show and people get to spread the word about you. More people know you and engage your content; more people push your star power. Here are 5 people I recommend you follow on periscope.

Alex Pettitt – Award Winning Broadcaster/Periscope Coach

Ebong Eka – Life and Business Coach/Strategist

Danielle Ford – Marketing/Social Media Expert

Krista Jennings – Productivity/ Time Management Coach

Yetunde – Lifestyle Entrepreneur/PR and Branding Strategist


You can make money by first building your follower base, providing great and compelling content, then taking those numbers and that great content to advertisers to pay you for your power of influence. Product placement is also a great way to get paid. So e.g. if you wear a t-shirt or use a lipstick by a specific company on one of your scopes, they can pay you for that exposure to your followers and many more ways.


I joined Periscope when it launched in March, but stayed dormant until recently and I have only just begun to activate its power. There is one person I have followed on Periscope from day one and his name is Alex Pettitt. With over 97K followers in less than 5 months, he is #No1 and most loved for sharing periscope top tips. Find him on youtube <<click here to see all his videos on how to tap into the power of Periscope.

Periscope is one of the few live feed apps that has activated more people since it launched on March 26th. It is also tied to your twitter account. The goal with any online venture should be consistency, engagement and providing value and people will come.

If you do it right, this new APP can help you increase your star power, build profits as you grow your content/audience and build a life as a “Periscoper”. HAPPY SCOPING!
