What Is A Branding Coach?

Although the term “Branding Coach” might seem pretty self-explanatory, let’s break it down.

A branding coach is a brand-building expert who coaches their clients on the concept, development and management of their brand. 

These brand coaches ultimately create brand leaders who are more prepared to lead their brand to success.

Though many business leaders outsource their branding to creative agencies, more want to understand their brand and take the reins so they feel they have control over their brand’s success. 

Why Branding Coaches And Personal Branding Coaches Are In-Demand?

The terms “branding coach” or “personal branding coach” are relatively new, but why is that?

Well, quite simply, in decades past, these roles didn’t exist in any real capacity because there was little demand.

Traditionally, senior brand representatives would climb the corporate ladder from junior to senior positions learning on the job in large organizations.

Many hires were internal promotions and external recruitment were brought in to execute not to coach.

Branding Coaches Emerged For Small Business

Today, however, things have changed. 

Brands aren’t reserved for global organizations anymore. 

Millions of new brands are created every single day.

Most are created by first-time entrepreneurs or solopreneurs with visions of managing their brand to success.

Until recently, most would pay a designer for a logo, maybe a website and away they’d go.

Though as any entrepreneur with any real experience will tell you, that ain’t branding, a fact that’s becoming apparent to the new breed. 

These days, business leaders are more savvy and are looking to branding coaches to shine a light on what they need to know to build and manage their brand to success.

What Does A Branding Coach Do?

Well, let’s look at the definition of a coach.

A coach is a professional, who trains and assists others to achieve results in a given field. 

A football coach will train fundamentals to advanced techniques to give the team the tools and plan they need to go out and achieve competitive results.

A branding coach is exactly the same, but in the field of branding.

A branding coach helps their clients to understand branding from the fundamentals to advanced techniques and gives them the tools and plan they need to go out and achieve competitive results. 

In other words, a branding coach builds brands with their clients while training them to manage their brand to success. 

Branding Coach vs Brand Strategist

Although brand strategists and branding coaches are similar, they’re not the same.

Brand strategists work with their clients to build brands for them while a branding coach works with their clients to build brands with them. 

Although some brand strategists take the time to provide their clients with relevant knowledge, branding coaches put much more emphasis on that education to ensure their clients are equipped to manage their brand effectively.

Why Become A Branding Coach?

Well, in case you missed it there is a growing market.

In years past, newbie entrepreneurs easily confused a logo and a brand as one and the same. 

Today however, there is simply so much readily available information on what a brand is and what it isn’t, fewer business owners are going in with their eyes closed. 

They’re becoming more aware of what they need and how to get it.

The Influence Of Influencers

When I began my entrepreneurial career, Youtube was where you went to for cat videos and influencers were your mates who always encouraged you to have one more drink.

Today, if you want a question answered, chances are there is an influencer with a channel answering that very question.

From Gary Vaynerchuck to Tony Robins and beyond, there are very few business influencers that don’t take the time to highlight the importance of building a brand the right way.
