DISCOVER HOW TO
MAKE WHAT YOU MAKE MATTER


When you know you have something beyond the ordinary the common struggle is how to articulate your message.


Creating a need, a desire, for your product is one of the most difficult tasks you face.

Articulating your message and presenting the proof.

Creating a meaningful brand.

Making what you make matter.

Not because people don’t want to know (or don’t care).

They do.

They will.

They simply have busy lives.

Other matters to contend to.

That’s why you need to know what will make what you make matter.

To position your product in a way that demonstrates the value it will add to your customer’s lives.

This is how I help makers.

To overcome the marketing challenge that can shackle sales. Frustrating the most venerable craftspeople.

You build your product. I’ll help build your brand and reach your people.

Together we’ll discover how to build an emotive connection between your online audience and your product.

To position your product in a way that creates intrigue and desire.

In a way that motivates people to purchase.

What will get your product in the hands of your customer?


Storyboard Your BrandStoryboard is a brand design process. Not logos, but words. Images. Context. Designing a message that will resonate with your audience. To differentiate from the competition. To challenge convention. To reap reward.

Through the storyboard process we’ll blend 3 core elements of your maker business. Your people. Your process. Your perspective. 3 ingredients that will pave the journey your audience take as they learn the value your product presents them.

Your value.
Your message.
Your mission.
Your story.
Your product.

This is how you transition from commodity to a premium product.

The story we share with your audience.

The story your audience tell themselves.
