1 THE BASICS OF BRANDING AND MEDIA Presented by: Tim Mullin, Chair YNPN Southern Nevada Saturday, June 28,

2 THINK OF YOUR BRAND AS A COOKIE….. 2

3 C OOKIE I NGREDIENTS Your brand identity (logo, marketing pieces) is like flour, the glue that holds the cookie together Online media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Constant Contact, Google, Instagram, etc.) is the sugar that sweetens the cookie. Without it, your organization will be bland and irrelevant. Traditional media (TV, print, radio advertising etc.) is like baking soda; an ingredient many people dont think is necessary in the digital world, but is essential to the success of the cookie. Your PR campaign is like the chocolate chips. Without the chocolate chips, your cookie has no flavor, no pizzazz, and, no one will know how good the cookie tastes. Your word of mouth reputation is like cookie quality control; if people hear that your cookie doesnt taste good, no one will buy it. 3
