Branding: discover who you really are.

What is your brand DNA?

Your brand is one of your most important assets. It's your primary means of communicating with the outside world.

The Reference is your brand's safe haven. Brands trust us with their digital communication, because they know we will keep taking care of them.

For many brands, digital is a jungle. The virtually unlimited amount of channels offer plenty of opportunities, but it's hard not to get lost.

It's not a good idea to apply branding too strictly, as each channel has its own peculiarities. When applied too broadly and generalistic, branding loses its effectiveness.

The Reference develops a framework for (digital) branding that makes it practical and easy to answer questions such as:

  • What tone-of-voice should we use on Facebook?
  • How can I make sure our online ad campaigns are coherent with our email marketing?
  • What kind of visual supports should we use on social media?

The framework is delivered in the form of a brand house. It allows you to express your brand across each channel in a coherent fashion without losing its effectiveness. This methodology also leads to the establishment of a new or updated corporate identity.

Need help? Ask our consultants.

We are very happy with the end result of the new website. The passion, commitment, perseverance and wide range of expertise of the team at The Reference confirms that they are the right digital partner for us, now and in the future; a partner who can support us from digital strategy to implementation and further optimisation of our services. - An Van Sande, Corporate Marketer DELA

The Reference on top of “Positioning”

Read more

An old wrestling expression says that you can’t get pinned when you’re on top.

Being consultants we constantly read interesting books, try out promising techniques and follow new courses to stay on top of things so you, our customers, stay on top and don’t get pinned down.

This week we take a look at “Positioning - The Battle for Your Mind” by Al Ries and Jack Trout, a golden oldie and fun read that is, surprisingly enough and despite its outdated examples, still relevant. What did we learn from it?

The Bot Chronicles S01E09: Domains, Contexts, Intents and Entities

Read more
In episode 7 of this series we covered step 3 of our discovery phase in bot development (how to define our bot fuctionality). But we stopped short on it and left out the whole concept of domains, contexts, intents and entities. In episode 8 I gave you all a quick scare, and now I'm back to finish off what I started in episode 7.

In this episode we'll dive head-first into the concept of domains, contexts, intents and entities.
