Tell Your Story
Messages are the substance of marketing. They're the words you use to tell your story.
Messages are often developed apart from a clearly articulated brand strategy and without validation. The result is scattered messaging, leading to a weak response from customers and a poor return on your marketing investment.
Ideally, your messaging efforts are closely linked to your brand work. The concepts you attribute to your brand are translated into concrete language that speaks to the hearts and minds of your target audiences, in a style and tone that is true to your business.
Effective brand messages are direct, succinct and more readily understood by more people. Everyone from the CEO to the sales manager to the customer support representative knows the key messages and can get behind them.
We help clients find the messages that resonate with customers, partners, analysts, the press, and other critical audiences. Our approach addresses audience segmentation so that the right messages reach the right people. We analyze the needs and desires of your key audiences in relation to your company's offerings, then create messages that speak to those wants and needs.
Messaging is never done, only forgotten. The challenge is to keep messages fresh and relevant in a highly evolving market – to decide which messages are immutable and which can adapt. We can help you institute a process to systematically update your messages and stay on brand.
