Successfully positioning our brand through written communications means considering both the message and the manner in which it is delivered. Reference the following editorial and stylistic guidelines when writing about Hermosillo.
Writing and speaking about Hermosillo begins with understanding our brand’s personality, which is rooted in our unique company culture. A culture that’s built on strong values – honesty, integrity, teamwork, a focus on family – and an innate desire to do good work. We approach each opportunity with deliberate thoughtfulness and joy. A people-first mentality is a hallmark of our company and this empathetic sentiment should be pervasive in your communications.
The Hermosillo brand voice conveys the confidence and authority that comes with being an industry leader. We speak clearly and with certainty, sharing our knowledge, expertise, and values in a professional, but conversational voice.
Our tone is warm and personal—never cold and corporate. Remember, people are at the heart of what we do. We are appealing to both their cognitive reasoning and their emotional needs. Strive for the tone of your writing to be:
Reflecting industry thought leadership, but never boastful or sarcastic
Compelling statements, but bold claims are always substantiated with facts
Adopting contemporary terminology, but avoiding social media shorthand or slang
Thoughtfully approachable and purposeful
Succinct and clear messages that are never salesy
Our elevator pitch is external messaging deliberately crafted to instill confidence in our capabilities and claim our position as an industry leader.
