1. The Brand Archetype Guide

The Brand Archetypes are one of the tools we use in The Real You and my 1 - 1 work. We always use them in combination with in-depth brand research, our brand matrix, synchronicity, self-love, client research, etc.

You can use the brand archetypes in a non-rigid way - this is how it is - but that's pretty boring. Instead, use them as a more playful - and feminine - way to brand your business and combine it with exploring: 'Who You Really Are' and an amazing world will open up for you!

Are you ready to brand yourself the Wonderfully Weird Way? Let's go!


Brand archetypes are universal, timeless, and deeply ingrained patterns or themes that are commonly found in storytelling and myth. They are used in branding to help companies create a clear, consistent, and compelling brand identity that resonates with their target audience. It is - like synchronicity - based on the work of Carl Jung,

There are twelve brand archetypes in total: the Explorer, the Creator, the Innocent, the Nurturer, Everyone, the Ruler,  the Sage, the Alchemist, the Rebel the Jester, the Lover, and the Hero.

By understanding which archetypes a person identifies with, a brand can more effectively communicate with them. For example, someone who identifies with the jester archetype may be more likely to respond to a brand that uses humor in its marketing, like M&M's or Ben & Jerry's.

Each brand archetype has its own unique characteristics, strengths, energy, and challenges. Businesses choose the archetype (s) that best fits their brand's mission, values, and target audience. By aligning their branding with a specific brand archetype, companies can create a strong and consistent brand identity that resonates with their audience and helps them stand out in a crowded marketplace

2. Why Are Brand Archetypes Important for Your Brand Strategy?

Brand archetypes are important because they help your brand create a story and an energy that resonates with consumers. Archetypes are often used to position a brand as a leader in its industry.

The ruler archetype can be used to convey a brand's strength and authority. The lover archetype can be used to show consumers that the brand is passionate and committed to its products or services. By using brand archetypes, brands can create a strategy that will allow them to connect with consumers on a deeper level and build brand loyalty.

Brand Archetype Guide for your Visual Brand Identity

The use of brand archetypes is an important tool in the development of your brand identity. By understanding the personality archetype of your brand, you can develop a strong brand identity that resonates with your target audience. Your brand colors, logo, tone of voice, and images should all reflect the archetype of your brand. Your brand story should also be aligned with your brand archetype to provide a consistent message across all touchpoints.

How the Brand Archetype Guide Framework Builds emotive brands

The brand archetype framework is a tool that helps brands connect with their audience on a deeper level. Carl Jung first introduced the concept of archetypes, which are universal symbols that exist in the collective unconscious. By understanding and using archetypes, brands can build a strong emotional connection with their audience.

There are 12 brand archetypes, and each one has its own set of emotions and associations. When creating your brand story, it's important to choose an archetype that aligns with your brand's values and mission. Doing so will help you tap into the power of archetypes and create a brand that people can connect with on a deeper level.

Brand Archetypes Are Not About Appealing To Everyone

Brand archetypes are not about appealing to everyone, but rather about finding the right target audience for your brand. You can have multiple archetypes for your brand, each representing a different type of customer. For example, an outlaw archetype might appeal to customers who are looking for a rebellious or edgy brand like Harley Davidson.

A truly feminine approach which is very unusual in the marketing world. To work with the energies, with our own strengths and our own life purpose was great.

After only 1 Month I found my zone of genius, turned it in a program and sold my first 12-month group coaching program.

In 1 year I have moved more than in the 15 years before. I was very modest with my pricing, but Esther told me to double or triple my prices.

I thought: "That is crazy. No one will buy at those prices."  But my international sales keep coming.  This has given me so much self confidence.
