Creating Brand Loyalty With Betsy McHugh

In addition to membership benefits, YEC offers access to educational materials featuring successful entrepreneurs. [Note: The full benefit is YEC members only — click here to find out if you qualify — though everyone can find more videos on our YouTube channel, here.]

In this video clip, Betsy McHugh, founder and CEO of Hurdl Enterprises, explains how you can create brand loyalty by defining the three dimensions of your brand: credibility quotient, personality/relatability/likability, and what your brand stands for. By running your brand communications through these filters, you will create consistent messaging for your customers.

The important thing is to really make sure that every opportunity that happens with that brand is run through that filter of those three dimensions so that your messaging is consistent.”
