Our Process

We've created a 4-step process to createand promote your brand story.

  • 1. WHAT: CRAFTING YOUR STORY

    You have a POWERFUL story to tell. There is a WHO looking for your story.
    Our Storytelling Process is a unique experience as no two businesses are the same. Before we can tell your story, we find out what makes you different than your competition and how your company can best position its brand in the marketplace.
    Visit & Meet - Getting to know key individuals, finding the heart and heartbeat within your organization that connects the consumer (WHO) to you.
    Research - Understand what you do that makes you money, your passions, and what you're proud of.
    This part of the process may include creating several "starter" videos that tell your story (to be used on social media outlets and website.) It may also include photography, where we visually capture your key employees, your product/s, your service/s, to build on the foundation of your story.

  • 2. WHO: IDENTIFY YOUR IDEAL AUDIENCE

    We identify who your ideal customers are and determine short and long term goals for reaching them.
    Knowing precisely WHO we are talking to as we tell your story leads on to understanding your ideal customers. That understanding enables your story to be shared with them at their heart level - opening them up to use all of their senses and creating a long-lasting impression.
    We all have a sight response, an emotional response and a smell response to our consumer experiences. These all create lasting memories for future purchase decisions helping put you at top-of-mind when your WHO is ready to buy.

  • 3. WHERE: IDENTIFY KEY CONNECTION POINTS

    This is where we'll determine the avenues for reaching your ideal customer. This will include considering the following (and more as we discuss):
    • Social media, blogging, podcasts, videos. website, landing pages, and Search Engine Optimization.• Publications, print, or online advertising.• Sharing community connection ideas, if applicable.
    The result is a Brand Story that connects your ideal audience's story to yours, building excitement about your story and brand, while creating faithful customers who come back year after year.
    This part of the process contains your brand's assessment, and that covers:
    Logo - Ensuring your logo is a powerful image of your brand story.Text & Context - Writing your story to keep your brand message cohesive and connecting it in everything you do because consistency across channels is essential.Photos - Looking through old ones, taking new photos, and using the powerful medium of imagery to create an emotional response to your story.Video - Discussion on how video will help you tell your story.Print - Assessing the need for print material.

  • 4. HOW: COMMUNICATING YOUR STORY

    This is the fun part! With your input, we create a plan to reach your long-term goals. Pulling all the pieces together we start telling your story from purchase to end-user satisfaction.
    We connect you to your audience in a variety of ways:
    Website - Custom, professional website design. Fresh images, text, context, linking your story to your ideal customer's story. Social Media - Sharing your story and brand messaging on the social media outlets that your ideal audience actually use, increasing impact and engagement.Print - Evaluating if you need upgraded/new business cards, brochures, mailings, etc.Publications - There may be publications that fit your story and audience. If so, we provide Ad placement recommendations.Video - Video combined with your story is like kerosene on a fire so we'll turn up the heat by creating visuals that educate, entertain, inform and also share your story.
