Branding

We help brands connect better with their target audiences

Audiences want to feel connected to the brands they regularly use and support. Simply fulfilling their needs is not quite enough. You need to connect with them on an emotional and values-driven level in order to inspire loyalty and, ultimately, advocacy. 

Brand Marketing

Audience driven brand manifestos

A brand manifesto sets out why your organisation exists, what its purpose is (what your aspirations and ambitions are), and how you want to be perceived by your customers, your key stakeholders and your employees.  

Your manifesto captures what you stand for and why people should care about your brand. It’s typically an emotional story that captivates your audience, emotionally connects with them, and persuades them to support your brand. 

Whilst a brand manifesto is an extremely useful tool to identify how to build a loyal customer base. It also plays a key role internally, helping your organisation to attract and retain talented and motivated employees.

How the brand manifesto process works

The brand manifesto is an approximately 8-week process that results in a comprehensive document that captures the brand essence and direction of your business from the perspective of all your team, your stakeholders, your clients and your suppliers.  

We kick off with a brand audit workshop where we shake out your marketing box of tricks and make sense of the messaging you are already doing and what needs to change. 

We look at your business from a number of different angles, teasing out the true character of your brand and where the opportunities lie. 

We make sure we know your differentiators and how you reach your next customer. 

We segment your target customers and stakeholders according to how you help them and how they find you. 

Finally, we bring it all together into a comprehensive brand manifesto document that sets out the ‘North Star’ guiding value proposition for the brand and overall business direction.
