Posting bc this is full of tea for all the knowitall casual fans and super stans. A lot of what you think you know about SM is WRONG. Quick list tho:

- Krns are already naturally very pale (she was SEA and was not forced to bleach her skin)

- No one was forced to diet

- You don’t have debt if you finish your contract even if you don’t debut

- Trainee debt when you debut is easily paid with a hit song or CF (i.e. EXO is loaded just as I thought and their debt was probs paid back in Growl era or before)

- No one is forced to have surgery

- Sponsor shit only happens in smaller companies

- Trainees are not mistreated by staff

- SM teaches vocal theory, technique, songwriting and producing

Setting Your Values

For my first post I think it’s important to start right at the beginning before communicating your brand through your marketing channels. One thing that you really need to be sure of and to ‘stay true to your brand’ along with maximising your communication efforts…….are your brand values! 

To pull through a fantastic example of this, is one of my current clients, Mini Kicks. Now I personally had absolutely zero input on the values, but I personally shared the same ethos, so it was easier for me to connect with the brand and communicate on its behalf through social channels, along with helping improve communication moving forward. 

What’s important is that, as a business owner or someone creating a brand, that you know exactly what these values are and that the people who work for you, have the same values installed.

Creating your values sets the tone of how you communicate and exactly what type of communication you put out. It not only helps with communication on social, but across all brand channels, whether that be face to face or over email.  The values are what represents you as a person and a business.

Here is an example of the values from this brand…



3.Fun & Creativity

4.Honesty & Openness

5.Care :)

They also have a great defining mission statement that has been there from the start of the brand and to current day which is nearly 9 years on!

This mission statement: To positively impact a child’s life at every opportunity

So this one powerful mission statement and core values has been shared by the founder of the business and installed into every single person that has joined the team. Because Mini Kicks consistently sticks to, and showcases these values, its customers build a connection with the brand and know what to expect. 

The brand started off helping just a few children in one academy and now has gone onto make a positive impact to 10′s of THOUSANDS of children EVERY SINGLE WEEK.

This particular photo has become somewhat Iconic and pretty much sums up the Mini Kicks brand. Here is the founder, Ben Hunter, coaching one of the children. 

Now Mini Kicks are going through some changes to its brand, but because they have a core set of values, which will not change, everybody knows how to communicate, and when the changes do happen, those who follow the brand or its customers, still know the business they are dealing with and the trust remains intact. 

Values do exactly this, they help build trust and business reputation. If you do not have these values in place, you will probably find a mixed tone through your communication, struggle with engagement and a slower process in trying to build a successful brand. Your direction will be confusing.

So, if you’re starting a business, or you’re struggling with communication….go back to your values, work on them and be consistent with pushing them out in the future. It is what represents your business…..and the people behind it!
