Brand Conversations That Convert with Kate DiLeo

Knucklehead Podcast

14-11-2023 • 23 minutos

Imagine the first 15 seconds of any conversation in sales or marketing. Picture the homepage of a website, the initial beats of an advertisement, the opening lines of an email, or the introduction in a virtual Zoom room. These crucial moments are not just opportunities. They are the battlegrounds where a business either captivates or loses its audience.

In this edition of the Knucklehead podcast, Stephen is joined by Kate DiLeo. Successful in building a winning brand pitch for outbound sales, Kate talks about how she transitioned from academia to sales and eventually became a bestselling author and founder of a brand strategy firm. She also explores the importance of building a strong brand strategy and how it can help businesses grow.

Kate DiLeo is the Founder of The Brand Trifecta, an interactive brand-building program that has empowered thousands of organizations to build brands. An "accidental brand strategist" who originally intended to pursue a PhD in Anthropology, Kate discovered the power of branding during her first sales job. In the pursuit of making quota, Kate realized she needed to cut through the noise with a message that would compel prospects to want to have a conversation. It was that, or she was out of a job. The Brand Trifecta is rooted in her firm belief that brand is the path of least resistance to revenue. Kate is also a #1 International bestselling author who teaches at some of the world's premier marketing conferences and directly mentors startups through more than a dozen global accelerator programs.

Favorite Quotes

02:19 - "I don't think a lot of us, as entrepreneurs and leaders, have this perfectly straight line in our careers. We've had a lot of circumstantial, really interesting opportunities that lead us to where we are." - Kate DiLeo

05:51 - "Brand is the promise of who we say we are and the value we deliver. It's a language, and it's the power of language that ultimately leads to the path of least resistance to revenue."- Kate DiLeo

07:38 - "A brand is the first 15 seconds of any conversation, sales or marketing conversation. It's the homepage of your website, the first five seconds of an ad, the lead-in for your email, or what you say in the Zoom room. It's the first few things that somebody wants to know." - Kate DiLeo

10:26 - "The biggest downfall I used to make early on was that I would go write brand with marketing and marketing only. That is the dumbest thing ever because a brand is held by not only marketing but also the C-suite team or the founder and sales." - Kate DiLeo

11:01 - "A brand is the glue that holds sections of the organization together. It's the singular message that everybody is speaking in the organization — what we do, how we solve our customer's problems, and how we're different." - Kate DiLeo
