3 © Red Spider Ltd On Branding Branding is inevitable – we perceive and pigeonhole images quickly - it is human nature e.g. what images come to mind of a Social Worker vs Fire-fighter? Branding is everybodys business – there are lots of contact points and interactions which create an image and reputation in peoples minds ending up with levels of trust, respect, and perceived quality of a brands expected performance (Good) Branding is about closing the gap between your intention and others perceptions

The brand means every incarnation, and every living, breathing second of an organisations life Source; Brandstorm There are so many factions involved that it can appear impossible to prescribe a Nursing Brand Strategy

11 © Red Spider Ltd WARNING!! Service Brands are hardest to maintain Aim for the sweet spot of chosen partner + attractive personality + consistent performance Very easy to let the ideal down by an individuals behaviour Consistency in the face of the day to day adversities is hard to guarantee Simplicity and clarity of what you want the brand to be is paramount - to act as an anchor for the mind in the storm

14 © Red Spider Ltd Brand REDPRINT ® Components Brand Idea Brand Values Competitive Context – Brand Promise Target Audience Segmentation Brand Persona Brand Proposition Manifesto

15 © Red Spider Ltd Loglines Fundamental Idea of a brand/company/organisation as if you are pitching the high concept to a producer to get a movie made 25 words or less

16 © Red Spider Ltd Recommended LOGLINE - the idea of Nursing is: - a challenging demanding fulfilling professional career providing tailored care for the health of individuals to help heal, aid recuperation and improve their well-being

17 © Red Spider Ltd Values A method of word and image association to make the complexity of brands simple, understandable, memorable, distinctive, and manageable Core Values drive brand behaviours.

18 © Red Spider Ltd Red Spider Planets & Moons – core values drive brand behaviours Values are: qualities we prize important or desirable traits standards we judge by guiding principles, morals our ideals

19 © Red Spider Ltd Red Spider Planets & Moons Core values are planets… –unchanging –few –commonly agreed –drive brand behaviours Secondary characteristics are moons… –diverse –changeable –often contradictory –moons cluster to form planets

22 © Red Spider Ltd The test of your Planets & Moons map Differentiates as a collective set from other caring professions Easily resonates with those who uphold the brand (the nurses are the brand) Nothing you do should contradict the values map – or it is off strategy

23 © Red Spider Ltd Positioning A way of handling competitive threats,from different potential choices for our target audience. A tool for creating the brands competitive stance.

24 © Red Spider Ltd Web of Competitors Consider key competitors How should we respond to their challenge to our brand Like a debate – what are our ripostes!

25 © Red Spider Ltd Competitive context Social work –Nursing is better than social work because it is Held in higher esteem has wider career prospects Is more autonomous Less fearful working environment Empowers you to make decisions Has a wider perspective on life Is the profession that helps, whereas social work interferes Healthcare –More diversity in nursing Complementary health medicine –Greater credibility as a career- not at the mercy of latest fad and fashion Teaching –More intimate relationship e.g. you can touch patients –No huge pile of take home marking !

26 © Red Spider Ltd Insights Societal - The world around us feels to be increasingly isolating and individualistic, ever more threatening and with a diminishing sense of community. Nursing on the other hand gets close to people, and offers a sense of belonging, but there is a fear it may lacking professional respect, making it less attractive to join. Category - 80% of people are bored at work; and although they are close to people they are not truly with them. Nursing is perpetually active, but it is often seen as too challenging for most people to face up to Brand - Patient care is at the core of the purpose of Nursing, and unlike other caring jobs it is helping, giving and touching (literal & metaphoric), dealing with people and not dealing just with problem people or simply about the problems people have.

27 © Red Spider Ltd Nursing can assume a brand leadership in its Brand Promise Should sell off the top of the offer – best foot forward Nursing is the most emotionally rewarding career

28 © Red Spider Ltd Manifesto for NURSING as a Brand Movement What do we want to change or achieve?

Provision of the best of Patient Care Accepting that intense reward does not have to be acclaimed What are we Against? Unloved and uncaring-ness How will we Behave? With pride, compassion and positive-ness With dignity courage and fortitude Acknowledging that this is a career for big hearts not faint hearts Whats our role in peoples lives? The out-held hand

29 © Red Spider Ltd Brand REDPRINT ® Summary Brand idea Nursing is a challenging demanding fulfilling professional career providing tailored care for the health of individuals to help heal, aid recuperation and improve their well-being Brand Values Maintain: Teamwork, Compassion Build: Versatility, Make a Difference Target market NSM readers who are busy, and at times self questioning having given out so much – and at worst feel beleaguered, stretched, tired and undervalued at times Insight The majority of people are bored in their jobs, feel stuck in a rut, going through the motions feeling life is passing them by, and dream of something more involving and fulfilling.
