Episode Summary

How do you build a community through rebranding? When it’s time to shift the focus of your community and hone in on who your ideal audience is, how do you reconcile the community you’re building with the one you’ve already built? It can be tricky to marry the messaging between the two—especially if they’re wildly different.

Meet Stephanie Carls, Director of Social Media and Digital Content at Corel, brand voice expert, and employee advocacy rock star, as she speaks with host, Jen Gutman, about the trials and tribulations of undergoing a rebranding campaign, and how to align what was with what will be.
