Frequently Asked Questions from businesses we’ve worked with.

What is the difference between Branding and Marketing?

The easiest way to view the difference is Branding is how people feel about your brand and marketing is positioning your brand as a solution to a problem your customers need to overcome so they want to buy what you sell.

What is Brand Messaging and how will it help my business?

Brand Messaging is how you and your customers talk about your business.

We use a narrative messaging framework that utilizes elements of storytelling to position your customer as the hero in a story and your brand as their guide. Your customer wants something, but they have a problem that is preventing them from getting it. Your brand is there to be the guide that helps them overcome their problem and win the day.

Is Brand Messaging or Visual Branding more important?
We see them as equal partners. To be sure, people buy things based on the words they read. However, if the words they read are not presented in a way that is aesthetically appealing and easy to consume…they might not read them.

That being said, we start with Brand Messaging and then move on to visual branding when a client needs both. If you already have an established visual brand, we’ll go through brand messaging and buzz by visual branding if it’s not needed.

What is he benefit of good copywriting?

Copywriters aren’t poets. Copywriters are people who are skilled at taking just about any idea, no matter how complex, and putting it into clear language your potential customer understands. 

They take your product or service and put it into words your customer quickly will understand and cause them to want to purchase or hire you.

Can you help with our social media?

One of the greatest benefits of our Brand Messaging Guides (results of your Brand Messaging Session) is it gives you a roadmap for what to talk about, and how to say it, on your social media channels. 

Never guess again what you need to post about on social media.

Can you build me a new website that ranks on Google?

Short answer…maybe. While we regularly have success getting clients’ websites to increase in search ranking through various SEO practices (Search Engine Optimization), we make no promises you’ll rank #1 or on the first page. A lot of that has to do with your target market and how saturated it might be. We can, however, do a lot to help you get there.

Is email marketing dead?
Heck no! Email marketing is alive and well. Building a robust email list is like having money in the bank. We help you map out what lead generators might be valuable for your clientele and work with you on effective sales and nurture email campaigns.
What is a lead generator and why do I need one?

A lead generator is an asset you essentially give away on your website for the low cost of someone’s name and email address. It has a strong title that leaves your customer wanting to know more and is very valuable once they receive it.

By offering a lot of value to your potential customers, you’re creating a sense of “reciprocity.” They feel like they benefited so much from your generosity they need to hire you to return the favor.

A lead generator can be a lot of things. An email series, a PDF, a video series, a small course, a webinar, etc. Anything that provides a lot of value and delivers you an email address in return. 

How does Clear Brand Story Marketing approach website design?

The purpose of your website is to be your 24/hr sales associate. It should work for you even when you’re not working. We write and design your website to be simple, and clear as to how your product or service helps your customer overcome their problem.

Simple words. Simple design. Always move the customer to take action (hire you).

Can you help with content marketing?

Yes! Our Brand Messaging Guide we create for you will be the foundation of content marketing for your small business. It will be a road map for how to create effective content that always connects with your audience.
