**UPDATED 11/21/22** If you want to listen to a conversation where Ashe shares more about her experience working with Wild Womn Haus, be sure to check out EP 57 of The Wild Womn Hotline titled “Where is She Now? Ashe Milkovic, Founder of The International Association of Functional Hormone Health, Shares How WWH Helped Bring Her Greater Vision to Life.”
The International Association for Functional Hormone Health (IAFHH) is a B2B brand that provides research-based education and tailored professional mentorship for women’s health practitioners. But before IAFHH became the global juggernaut that it is today, serving businesses in over 13 countries, it functioned as a B2C brand, formerly known as Reproductive Radiance.
Ashe Milkovic, founder and CEO, came to Wild Womn Haus with a vision for positioning her company as the go-to source for cutting-edge education in functional hormone health. Over the next year, we used our signature process for rebranding a company, thus delivering brand and marketing strategies, a reconfigured business plan, and an elevated identity that catapulted IAFHH into the spotlight for women’s health practitioners all over the world.
Even though Reproductive Radiance was about to undergo a company-wide restructuring, a brand audit is always our first step when taking on a new project.
During this phase of our process, we perform a “checkup” that measures your brand’s position in the marketplace as well as other strengths and weaknesses.
In this instance, we used our brand audit process to get a baseline for current brand perception, visibility, and positioning.
A typical brand audit will focus on the internal communication that contributes to a brand’s values, mission, and company culture. But at Wild Womn Haus, we take things a step further.
Our signature brand audits include a full profile of your brand’s
After completing our audit of Reproductive Radiance’s brand, we kicked things off by doing a deep dive into the global women’s healthcare landscape, looking for potential opportunities in functional hormone health education and practitioner mentorship.
Our analysis revealed a unique brand lover: The Changemaker – a women’s health practitioner with a deep desire to transform the way women receive healthcare. This brand lover has a strong propensity for self-education and a deep desire for community. Our customer insight then became a driving force in our approach to the brand strategy.
Equipped with this insight, we then went on to the brand strategy development phase. Here, we create ICA segmentation, core brand messaging, and brand architecture for market placement and differentiation.
Here, we were able to identify 4 key segments of brand evangelists that would allow for laser-focused marketing and communication:
Next, we tested the brand’s core messaging and positioning on a focus group to gather quantitative and qualitative data. This ensured that our initial brand strategy could be weighed against the mental and emotional responses of the target audience.
In order for the brand to deliver upon its promise of “cutting-edge education and mentorship”, we supported Ashe in restructuring the core offerings and price points that the brand was to offer after the rebrand.
Based on the 4 key segments of brand evangelists we identified from our competitive analysis, we were able to create a core offer and a suite of supportive services that allowed for active and passive income generation.
Drawing on the brand strategy, we designed an aligned brand identity that spoke to the key emotions the brand’s target audience likes to feel. The result was an aesthetic that informed an immersive digital brand experience—evoking boldness, compassion, and conviction every step of the way.
Here’s what we delivered:
After completing our creative direction and design process, we developed a comprehensive launch strategy that would allow the brand to emerge with high visibility. We also developed a customer journey map that would continue to inform the brand experience and customer experience post-launch.
Our work ultimately helped IAFHH garner recognition from leading institutions in Functional Hormone Health, while maintaining a community-oriented position that continues to drive growth to this day.
“Working with Tristan and the Wild Womn Haus team was an absolutely incredible experience!
Before I decided to work with Tristan in developing my brand vision, I felt lost. I had a BIG dream for what I wanted to create but felt intimidated about how to best bring it to life. Tristan helped to make the process simple by breaking everything down into comprehensive action items that helped me to build clarity and confidence in developing my brand.
Whenever I hit roadblocks, Tristan held a supportive space for my thoughts, but also challenged me, in only the best ways, to reach deep within and uncover the depth and power of the vision hiding within me.
Through trusting her process, being vulnerable to her feedback, and having the courage to dig within and unleash the potential of my brand, the International Association for Functional Hormone Health was born. In the end, I couldn’t be any more satisfied with the results!
Working with Tristan was more than just a “brand design” service. It was a complete business and life-altering experience, and I am forever grateful to have had the opportunity to be supported by Tristan and her team.
10 out of 10 recommend!” – Ashe Milkovic, Founder & CEO of The International Association of Functional Hormone Health
