FIR on Higher Education #29 – Author Jeremy Miller on Applying Sticky Branding Principles

Do you feel that your brand - whether personal or institutional – is sticking? Are you growing and attracting the right audiences? Is your brand differentiated in the marketplace?

Jeremy Miller, president of a brand building agency and author of the book Sticky Branding, will share some principles that will help you answer the above questions. Specifically he covers how brands can have simple clarity in messaging and foster conversations with audiences.

Last month, Jeremy had a very successful book launch, in part because of how he leveraged his Sticky Branding LinkedIn community group of 40,000 members. If you use LinkedIn community groups, or are thinking about starting a group to position your brand, then you will want to hear Jeremy’s best practice advice.

In our reports section, I share some thoughts on how academics can be strategic in creating their owned content, while correspondent Harry Hawk discusses the product Campus Packs.
