Branding Your Community | Shayna Bryan

community building Jul 26, 2022

“Commonality is key to community.”

Our guest this week says that in order to build community we need to create an environment that people TRUST. What is one POWERFUL way to build trust? Have a consistent BRAND.

If you are a big picture person like me, talking about consistent branding feels super hard, it feels creatively…stifling? I want to be all the things! However that mindset it flat-out…wrong.

Our guest this week, Shayna Bryan is a branding strategist and Chief Creative Officer of Band of Mothers Media. She explained “consistent branding” to me in a way that I had never thought about before, …its thoughtfulness.

Who doesn’t wanna be thoughtful?

Shayna has had wild success touring the country as a comedian performing and producing the “Pump and Dump” show all over the nation for years. There was a lot of work and hard lessons along the way to build a team and go on tour full time, but when I asked her about community building she straight up said, well…your brand needs to be consistent.



FROM TODAY'S EPISODE:

  • Finding the common thread in your community

  • How to string in “consistency throughout your brand”

  • Creating community around fans? How do we do that?
