Ep. 444: A CEO’s Lessons in Building a Memorable, Profitable Brand

Mission, Vision, Values:

Building the Pillars That Support a Brand

Key idea: Don’t overcomplicate your mission, vision, or value proposition. Keep these elements of your business simple and in focus, and you’ll have a brand people know, an organization that is aligned, and a way to objectively measure performance.

Don’t reinvent the wheel. Learn from what others have done. Success leaves a trail.

You’ve heard us say these and similar things many times on Stay Paid. We emphasize these ideas to help our listeners avoid the mistakes and copy the success of the people we interview on the show.

This week, we ask our own Steve Acree, the CEO of ReminderMedia (the company behind Stay Paid), to share what he’s learned about building a successful brand that others would benefit from knowing.

Amid sharing entertaining stories and reminiscing about the early days (his “interview” is really a chat among old friends), Steve shares three key lessons:

  1. Your brand needs to be defined by and built around a solution to a significant pain point.
  2. To be effective, scale a business, and align a team with an organization’s goals, you need to ensure you have a clear and simple mission, vision, and value proposition and that you stay laser focused on them.
  3. You must make sure your audience understands the intrinsic value of what you do and how it impacts their lives for the better.

We hope you enjoy this episode and act on the advice Luke offers at the end. We’d also appreciate it if you took a moment to leave us a 5-star review and comment on Apple Podcasts. (We read them on air!) Thanks for listening!
