The Startup Branding Process

  2. Stealing Share creates the startup branding behavioral model (click here for details of our modeling). This model is a detailed structure that maps the relationship between process, purposes, and precepts.

    • The theme line speaks to the importance of the startup brand’s positioning in as few words as possible.
    • The brand name may use this theme line as a tagline. Ideally, the brand name would never appear without this theme in lockup.
    • Both brand name and theme line come from the strategic analysis of the behavioral model’s emotional fabric.
