Why the BrandSpark?

  • Design a 5-star experience for a cohesive client journey so that your clients feel like they know you before they even meet you, and continue to feel supported throughout their time with you
  • Unearth your true brand personality and voice so that you’re showing up in a way that’s unique to you, instead of competing with others to be “the best”
  • Choose the perfect marketing tools to amplify your brand and services, and define a targeted marketing strategy aligned with your business goals
  • Optimize your branding, website, and digital tools to attract and convert your perfect-fit clients, and provide a seamless experience throughout
"The Brand[Spark] session was a super-valuable experience. To do that internal work and introspection during the call, and especially after the call, having this document available as a guidepost for how to show up in my marketing in a way that is aligned with my intention and goals and brand...

This is money and time well-invested. This is a huge value."

See what others have to say about their BrandSpark experience:

"The BrandSpark really gave me clarity around where I wanted to focus my efforts and what I wanted to prioritize.

I feel more confident in my brand positioning which is helping me speak to my audience much more clearly. The pieces are coming together and I couldn’t be happier.

I left the BrandSpark experience with a tangible document that I can turn to when I start to feel flustered that clearly communicates to me what I’m working towards."

"I was struggling with speaking to multiple audiences as I straddled my local market and a new global audience on different platforms.

Having gone through the process, I got clearer about my goals and marketing strategy and learned how to better leverage my brand personality. I was able to improve the messaging for my new global audience and bring many ideas from my Brand[Spark] into my marketing and social content."
