1:1 Brand Strategy
Your custom built roadmap to having a globally recognised brand that stands out
For a long time, branding was a fluffy-pink-marshmallow-high-level kinda concept. One that the big businesses worked on as they sat around in their boardroom.
But, this is 2022! We now know that having a solid strategy before designing your logos and getting your social media sorted, is the key building a unique brand that customers want more of.
I might not know you yet, but I know what you want.
You want to stand out and stand up for what you believe in. You're grrrrr, passionate! You want authenticity, and for people to love your services and products. You want a brand that customers find irresistible.
"But, hang on Marty!! You're like a freaking mindreader, how did you know all that?"
Well, I wanted all that. I tried all kinds of ideas to help build my brand. I did the social media workshops and marketing masterclasses. I spoke to the gurus. I ran ads that attracted more sandflies than sales.
After all that, my brand was still unknown, confused and lacking direction.
I had no idea who my customer was and what they felt. When I put content out, I hoped for the best.
How could I make an authentic brand and build an experience people wanted to connect with?
I doubled down on strategy – and in the process created an 8-step framework that can help other brands stand out.
I tested it on new brands I was attracting and their results matched mine — better comms, revived energy, more conversations and more sales.
If your ready to build a brand that you and your customers love. Let's workshop your brand together and I'll take care of the rest.

A 1/2 day brand strategy workshop that is customised to your business goals. We'll discover everything we need to know about your business so we can make you irresistible.
All the details of your strategy document, carefully presented in an easy to navigate (and use) manner. It's your roadmap on how to implement your new brand, so we'll have a call to go through any questions that pop up.
When you get your strategy, I'm not just gonna wave you farewell, I'm your new cheerleader. I will help you put together a plan, so your strategy comes to life.
Your brand is unique. We'll clarify the 8 steps of the framework —
We'll look at what feelings you want customers to have, and how you are currently communicating with them. Your why and your unique selling position (USP). We'll look at current customer misconceptions and work out what they really want. Together we'll set brand goals.
We need to look at how to build a solid reputation and analyse brands that got it all wrong. We'll work out brand values, vision and mission statements and start crafting that emotive brand story!
Let's define your ideal customer and who you don't want to attract. We'll work out why customers love your brand and create up to 3 unique customer personas to help you along the way.
We'll analyse your competition so you aren't following their path, making sure you're one step ahead. We'll also dive deeper into understanding your customer's pain points and look at brands you love for future inspiration.
We'll map out your brands customer experience in detail. Looking at the start of their journey, the end of the journey and how we turn them into mega fans.
We'll humanise your brand and apply the language to customer personas. Let's throw an imaginary party so we can see how your brand interacts with customers. We'll develop CTA's and make a list of banned words and phrases. And, if you haven't already named your brand, we'll find your perfect brand name.
While we won't be designing your visual brand in your strategy. We'll piece together what you want to see when you turn to a designer to pull off this brand you're making. It gives a designer all the inspiration they need.
We'll look at your biggest problem right now and work out a plan to overcome it. You'll learn when it's the right time to evolve your brand and how to plan out your next moves to start kicking some serious goals.
