Brand Tuned is a podcast about brand management hosted by Shireen Smith. It’s for entrepreneurs, marketers, and designers looking for insights into how to create, build and grow distinctive brands. Episodes include interviews with thought leaders sharing useful information on aspects of branding, from intellectual property and trademarks, to understanding your customers’ wants and needs, to using appropriate business models, and setting the right brand strategy. Driving the brand involves focusing on the customer experience, team leadership, and doing marketing that builds the brand rather than purely on targeting sales. The TUNED framework for brand management is outlined in Shireen's book Brand Tuned - The New Rules of Branding, Strategy, and Intellectual Property.
