Hotel Brand Development

OUR PROCESS

Trust The Sunshine Gals to lead your team through the branding process.

From proprietary brand wayfinding to complete brand identity with key messaging, we’re experts at communicating to your target audience why they should care.

1.

We begin with Discovery

This is where we develop the strategy and value proposition that will become the foundation of the new brand identity. It is the most crucial part of the overall process as it will inform your entire communications effort moving forward.

2.

We define key competitors and points of difference

And lead our clients through our proprietary brand wayfinding exercise. This exercise focuses on further defining your mission, vision, value proposition as well as the tone and voice of the new brand.

3.

This culminates in a

“Mindset + Positioning” presentation

The “mindset and positioning” presentation is based on our clients’ core values, capability, culture and category, discovered during our wayfinding exercise.

4.

Resulting in brand name, brand design, and key messaging

The “Mindset and Positioning” presentation also includes your unique value proposition and branded options that translate those key findings into succinct design that communicates to our target and why they should care.

5.

With your value proposition clearly defined

We shape your hotel’s value proposition so that the market doesn’t do it for us. We present a completed brand identity and key messaging for all communication vehicles including digital, social and print.
