Business & Marketing Strategy

Many times a marketing strategy reveals a weakness in your business plan.
If you’re having trouble articulating:
  1. What your product is
  2. The specific problem your solving
  3. Who your ideal customer is

Then you might have a business strategy weakness, and we will help you fix that.

This exercise a valuable check-and-balance before you go to market on a new product, or a rebranding.

Storytelling for Branding

“People love to buy, but they hate to be sold”

So how do you get people to buy your product without selling to them?
That is the conundrum of marketing.
Our approach is using storytelling, and persuasive writing.
Research shows marketing and communications shared in a storytelling narrative is twenty times more successful.

Here is one of my favorite examples, it’s an ad for Mercedes Benz.
The message is clear, this is a safe car. But every car company makes that claim. No one advertises that the car might not be safe, but it’s a really good deal!
But all great writers know that you don’t tell the reader who the character is,
you show them who the character is through their actions.
