greetings from coastal wilmington, nC & our Zoom room
We've all been there. Regrettably spewing out the generalized "So, we do ____, ____, and...." Cue the yawns induced by a forgettable run-on intro and trashed basic business card. You vow to improve your pitch next time but now the brand shame has sunken in — you've shared your URLs and know their judging the way your brand is poorly visually representing your growing business.
your brand presence is screaming amateur, even though your business is booming.
It's time to upgrade your branding so your business looks and sounds like the next level version it needs to be during this season of growth. Refined visual and verbal brand messaging that succinctly communicates for your business.
You can't read the label from inside the bottle.
Why is it so difficult for us to succinctly describe our business and what are special sauce is? It's not your fault it's a struggle to pinpoint your brand messaging - you're just too close to it. We are the outside perspective you need to help comb through to identify your hidden brand treasures so you can look and sound like the 2.0 version your business is expanding to.
It's not enough to stand out, you have to become memorable. If you're vague when you describe your own business as the owner — how can you expect a prospect to get it? No more generic one liners and forgettable branding, become memorable.
We're flamingos in a flock of marketing seagulls. We only do branding, because it matters most.
Similar to Marie Kondo, we enjoy a mess. Sifting through your entire business to uncover and articulate what makes your brand so special is our version of neatly organizing your junk drawer. Most established businesses that are ready to expand are anchored down by the equivalent of said junk drawer with a whole lot of stuff they really need to filter through. Over time your design, messaging and brand foundation have become cluttered or worse never addressed. It's time to tag in professional brand strategy to level up your business.
we are not a full service agency. we're a small team & will never upsell you unnecessary services.
Our only focus is brand strategy. We don't do marketing or advertising, nope not even social. You know why? Because it is a complete waste of time and money for a business to pay for an ad or to post on social if they do not have a solid brand foundation that defines and communicates: who they are as a brand, who they are specifically targeting, why they are in business, what makes them different and how they can succinctly help their clients. Otherwise, It's just noise.
