Let’s face it.
For too long, firms have relied on a static list of features and benefits to magically motivate busy audiences to suddenly pay attention, ignore their fear of change and sign up for their offer.
It doesn’t work. Turns out people don’t want to be messaged. They want to be moved. What works is a brand story – a cohesive compelling narrative, with the customer playing the hero.
Brand stories tap deeply into the interests and issues of your audience, fusing facts with feelings. They do the hard work, reframing how your audiences see their world – disarming skepticism, building buy-in, motivating action.
“Effective Marketing is no longer about the things that you make or the services you sell, it’s about the stories you tell.”
CEO, Braithwaite Communications
This isn’t just a hunch. It’s proven science. The human brain is wired for story. Our finely tuned neural networks process, store and share knowledge – in neat narrative structures.
When key messages are crafted into stories, they create ownership— engaging more of the person with more of the message. When people own information, they tend to identify with it, share it and act on it. And isn’t that what you really want your branding efforts to do?
We don’t just polish up logos, or spruce up websites. We move markets and shape mindsets. We unearth smart and strategic stories that help clarify, simplify and amplify your brand’s value.
Our Custom Branding Framework
We’ve developed a powerful framework for successful brand stories.
Our proven process finds the “best truth” of who you are and crafts it into a compelling narrative that creates deep, personal and enduring connections with the people who matter most. Our proprietary model is based on the three elements of effective human persuasion.
Our Brand Story Process
We build this proven format with a proprietary branding experience that brings your unique brand identity to life.
Our process begins with a group kick-off to align on goals, deliverables and deadlines and walks you through ways to de-think, free-think and re-think your brand story.
We apply our journalistic skills and do a deep dive into the competition, trending topics, issues and key influencers shaping your market. For deeper insights, we survey key audiences to uncover deeper value prop perceptions, buyer journey pain points and unmet needs.
Unique Story ThinkTank Sessions
Armed with insights, we lead your brand team through an energetic, idea-filled group session, called Story ThinkTank™. We ask pointed questions, play reporter, detective, analyst, skeptic and devil’s advocate to help bring your brand story to life.
Your Brand Story
With your new brand story articulated and approved, we work hand in hand with your team to activate it. From a website launch or content marketing program to a PR campaign or internal engagement push, we’re your partners in bringing your story to life with the audiences and channels that matter most to your business.
