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 everybody’s business – there are lots of contact points and interactions which create an image and reputation in people’s minds ending up with levels of trust, respect, and perceived quality of a brand’s expected performance (Good) Branding is about closing the gap between your intention and other’s perceptions © Red Spider Ltd. 2004
What is a brand? A “promise” in the mind of the customer / staffA set of associations attached to a product or service A means of communication between customers in shorthand A mark of trust in a desired relationship © Red Spider Ltd. 2004
What job should the brand strategy do?Bring the organisation/institution/calling to life Act as a common reference point Be clear, concise, and inspiring; Internally Externally For all stakeholders © Red Spider Ltd. 2004
What job should the brand strategy do? (contd.)Should “sell off the top of the offer” – best foot forward BUT must also be true Acid Test Distinctive Is your brand? Credible Relevant © Red Spider Ltd. 2004
How is the brand communicated?The image via TV programmes, magazine articles, advertising, signage, brochures, web site, corporate identity, uniforms, logo…. By all aspects of the experience and the customer/patient journey In the way you relate internally – your organisational culture By the people who are the brand © Red Spider Ltd. 2004

Attractive Personality Consistent PerformanceTypes of Brand Chosen Partner People Professionalism (challenge to improve) Promise of help, care, advice Continual attention Attractive Personality Consistent Performance Has to have brand character to avoid commodity comparison Value through confidence in maker, not cheapest Continually ‘Does what it says on the tin’ Much talked about Driven by a desire to delight Continually active – new news © Red Spider Ltd. 2004
What kind of brand is your brand? Defining a Service Brand“Everything connected to the essence of an organisation. The directors, all the people, the products, the logo, its physical presence, its voice, its reputation, its associations and endorsements, its customer relationships, and the sum total of all its marketing communications. The brand means every incarnation, and every living, breathing second of an organisation’s life” Source; Brandstorm There are so many factions involved that it can appear impossible to prescribe a Nursing Brand Strategy © Red Spider Ltd. 2004
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 individual’s 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 © Red Spider Ltd. 2004
Brand Strategy vs. Brand IdentityThe brand “strategy” is the set of meanings we want to attach to our brand The desired strategy has to be coherent - like the elements of a story The REDPRINT ® template The brand “identity” is how we execute strategy visualise and communicate it - from the uniforms through to the advertising/brochures/website etc Style of Language RED SPIDER ® Visual Images Typography REDPRINT ® IDENTITY WHEEL Logo Team Colours Tagline © Red Spider Ltd. 2004

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. © Red Spider Ltd. 2004
Nursing is the most emotionally rewarding careerNursing 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 © Red Spider Ltd. 2004
