The Most Powerful Way to Building a Brand...

Is to have a clear, compelling and authentic message that inspires raving fans — and repels the naysayers. To do that, you need a Brand Strategy, which is why we created the 5-Week Virtual Branding Intensive.

Imagine...

  • You are on the path to building a brand (not just a business) that makes money in an honest and ethical way.
  • Your brand has based on a compelling purpose that is rewarding and fulfilling — emotionally, financially, and even spiritually. 
  • ​You don't need to use aggressive sales and marketing tactics, because your brand attracts the right people for the right reasons. 
  • Your brand attracts an abundance of clients and customers who LOVE your brand for what it is (and what it's not).
  • ​Your brand message is clear and compelling — resonating with people who are willing to pay for your products or services​.
  • ​You have a brand that will not only survive these challenging times, but also thrive in the future.

If this sounds like you, keep reading.

We believe while marketing helps you eat, branding helps you sleep.

Brand Strategy is the starting point for every brand.

What is a Brand Strategy?

Well, let’s start with the term ‘strategy’ (the elusive, intangible term that most people don’t always grasp). 

Merriam-Webster’s definition of strategy is “a careful plan or method for achieving a particular goal usually over a long period of time.”  

So, if you’re committed to building a brand, the real question is:  Why would you NOT  have a Brand Strategy?

You have a Business Strategy.

You have a Marketing Strategy. 

But what sits in between both is your Brand Strategy.  Skipping ahead to Marketing Strategy without having Brand Strategy is the mistake most entrepreneurs and small business owners make. 

A Brand Strategy helps you:

  • Align you and your team behind a singular Vision.
  • Brief your creative team or designers to craft your unique Visual Identity.
  • Write marketing copy that resonates with your target audiences.
  • ​Build a website that is consistent with the promise and experience of your brand.
  • ​Implement more effective marketing campaigns and tactics.
  • ​Enable your sales team to make sales faster…and from the ideal customers and clients.

It’s why we created the 5-Week Virtual Branding Intensive.

What exactly is it?

We created the 5-Week Virtual Branding Intensive based on the simple understanding that there’s a difference between reading a book or taking a course on branding, and experiencing the branding process for yourself alongside a trained branding professional.

One of our biggest challenges (and frustrations) is there are way too many entrepreneurs and business owners who know that branding is important, but they always seem to put it on the back burner to all other business-building activities. 

Why? We ask ourselves this question all the time.

It’s easy to rationalize holding off on creating a Brand Strategy. We have seen time and time again. Businesses stay locked in the mindset they don’t need it yet, or they don’t need help from someone on the outside.

And yet, we know from experience that even the best companies in the world have a hard time seeing themselves from the outside.

Trying to rebrand yourself will ultimately take you longer. You’re bound to do some guess work. You’re signing up for constantly testing and re-testing. All while having a lingering doubt of whether or not you’re positioning your brand in the best possible way.

But, it doesn’t have to be this way. 

We want you to get it right the first time.

The 5-Week Virtual Branding Intensive is an immersive, deep-dive experience with the goal of creating your Brand Strategy. With 25+ years of experience across 100+ different industries, from Fortune 500 brands, Inc. 5000 companies, and thousands of B2B and B2C brands, we guide you through the entire process. Our clients have credited us for helping them:

  • Increase their revenues and profits.
  • Become market leaders in their industry.
  • Achieve Inc. 500/5000 fastest growing company status.
  • ​Increase fees or charge full value for their products or services.
  • ​Expand into new verticals or enter into new markets.
  • ​Attract employees, affiliates, and strategic partners.
  • ​And even transform their company's culture.

Who is it for?

Uncovering your Brand Strategy takes work, both on our part and more importantly, on yours. It’s not for people who are looking for a magic pill. It s for people who:

  • Have an exciting, innovative or purpose-driven business.
  • Operate with integrity and a high degree of ethics.
  • Have both emotional and business maturity.
  • ​Are action-oriented and decisive.
  • ​Have a sense of humor.
  • ​Have high-standards, but are also reasonable and flexible.
  • ​Collaborative, respectful, responsive, and easy to work with.
  • ​Open-minded and growth-oriented.
  • ​Value design and aesthetics.

Frequently Asked Questions.

  • Will I get a logo in this process? If there’s one thing you should know about branding, it’s that your logo is not your brand. While logos are an important and symbolic part of your brand, we need to first define the brand before we can even think about creating a logo, selecting colors, writing copy, or even building a website.
  • What exactly do I get? The short answer: you get a 30+ page document that defines the various layers of your brand. This contains the foundation and strategic tenets of your brand. For most entrepreneurs, it’s the missing piece of the branding puzzle. It’s the most important part of building a brand, and yet, it’s also the most overlooked.
  • How do I know if I am ready? The truth of the matter is that there’s no better time than today to work on your branding. If you’re not 100% committed to building a brand (or a business), then it’s probably not the right time to think about branding.
