It doesn’t matter how cool and timely your tactics are if they aren’t sending the right message.
How should you talk about your brand, product or internal initiative to drive your goals? Who’s your audience? What’s in it for them? What’s the big idea?
Smart strategy makes communication meaningful — to your audience and your bottom line. So we help you answer these kinds of questions and capture the insights in a messaging playbook, serving as a key reference document for your brand, product campaign, organizational change or other initiative. No need to reinvent the wheel for each communication.
And strategic messaging isn’t just for customers. We help you turn your employees into strategic storytellers and brand advocates. Armed with the right messaging, your employees can become walking, talking billboards for your communications initiative.
Messaging projects may involve:
- Stakeholder research
- Target audience analysis
- Competitor research
- Value proposition
- Key messages and supporting messages
- Creative themes
Beyond bullet points
With the right approach, you can get your messaging out of the clouds — and into the right level of detail to make your story meaningful.
