Arlington, MA, United States, 2009/01/13 - Likely to stir some controversy, the new book by Stephen Melanson introduces a new verbal application for brand positioning. Finally, a reason to throw away your elevator pitch.
Why controversy? This book expresses the conviction that Jaw Branding is an irreplaceable branding element, and superior to other services or methods now available for direct interactions.
Current branding techniques continue to lack the resonance, impact and productivity most organizations are looking for. “When projects are over”, Melanson said, “you can ask employees to explain how they position themselves and still get as many answers as people asked. This all but guarantees a weakened brand, especially on the front lines of prospect and client interactions.”
Without Jaw Branding, according to Mr. Melanson, all branding projects have elements of incompleteness and underperformance. Jaw Branding solves this dilemma by offering a platform to understand, apply verbally, and derive cultural confidence from a company’s best positioning. When used in conversations, it’s a superior strategy to traditional sales or communications tactics.
This book offers light-hearted expertise along with some sarcastic criticism for traditional sales and communications strategies – implicitly challenging providers to refresh stale tactics. It also explains Jaw Branding’s comprehensive nature, and relationship to memory and psychology, the dynamics of conversation, and why elevator pitches need to be forgotten, forever.
“Branding books don’t recognize that the most important branding moments are conversations”, said Melanson. “Jaw Branding is the only method I’m aware of that truly bridges the gap to produce higher sales and internal cultural benefit.”
“It’s time to rethink how you’re branding your company,” said Stephen Davis, Managing Director of the CXO Advisory Group. “To stay ahead of the pack, you need to be better than good…you need to be outstanding with a consistent image. Verbal branding is always overlooked but is a necessary branding component that must be taught.”
