What’s Your Origin Story?

Your origin story is simple: where did you (or your brand) come from? Brand strategy is as much about relationship building as it is about communication.

When you communicate your origin story to your stakeholders, you offer them a glimpse into your past.

Authenticity is where lasting relationships are built - by taking the first step of describing where you come from and how, you provide a point of cognitive recognition for your stakeholders to identify opportunities to collaborate - based on shared experiences and presumptuously, shared values.

Telling Authentic Brand Stories

Because consumers receive so many brand messages, they’ve figured out some ways to only pay attention to the things they care about. They follow the brands, influencers and lifestyles - which best reflect their interests.

It becomes important then, to cut through the noise. A great way to do that is to create, share, and engage with others - content. Whether your strategy is long term or short term, we recommend creating content which matches your customers journey to purchase.
