    I help my clients build power brands driven by purpose. ✦ FinTech Specialist ✦ 15 Years Branding Experience ✦ 10 Years Entrepreneurial Experience ✦ Full-Time Consultant ✦ University Degree in Arts & Graphic Design ✦ World Design Capital Finalist ✦ 100% Success & Top Rated on UpWork WHAT IS A POWER BRAND? You know them when you see them. They’re clear about who they are and what they stand for. You feel good identifying with them. You feel good recommending them to your friends. And you feel good buying their products and using their services. WHAT WILL A POWER BRAND DO FOR YOU? A power brand is catalytic. It raises the bar of every aspect of your business, from customer loyalty to product quality perception, to better profit margins. It inspires team culture and commitment to your vision. It’s a vital asset in attracting funding, negotiating an exit, or growing your business to become more valuable than its parts. WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BUILD A POWER BRAND? Vision. A clear, true, and inspired vision. Brands powered by purpose have an extraordinary ability to drive business success. We will workshop your vision together, capture it in the most compelling terms, and build it into your brand’s strategy. WHAT IS A BRAND STRATEGY? The captain who sets sail a few degrees out ends up miles off course. A brand strategy is your northern star that guides your team in growing your brand. It sizes up your competitors, segments and targets your audience, and claims a distinct market position. It then defines the brand’s personality, articulates its core messages, and styles its identity. This clarity is how your brand will connect the hearts and minds of your customers. HOW WILL WE WORK TOGETHER TO BRING YOUR BRAND TO LIFE? For the duration of the project, you can see me as a trusted partner. You do much of the heavy lifting while I navigate you through the process, soundboard your thinking, add creative input, and craft your final brand strategy guide. I will then step into the role of brand director, help select a specialized team, and oversee the development of the brand identity and required collateral. WHAT ARE THE DELIVERABLES? ❖ Vision Statement ❖ Brand Strategy Guide: Positioning, Personality, Overarching Story, Value Offer Statement/s, Messaging, Origin Story, Values, Tone Of Voice, and Style. ❖ Core Brand Identity: Brand Name, Tagline, Logo, Visual Language, Graphic and Photo Library, and Brand Guide (Stylistic Specifications for Layout Templates, Logos, Colors, Typography, Photography, and Supporting Graphics). ❖ Possible Collateral: Pitch Deck, Website, Corporate stationery, Social Media Templates, Digital Ad Templates, Ui/Ux Design, etc. WHAT NOW? If my approach resonates with you, get in touch! We’ll have a chat about your brand and business and see if we’re a good match to work together. I’m generous with my knowledge and experience and enjoy talking with driven founders with innovative ideas. ABOUT ME I was co-owner and creative director of a design and advertising agency for ten years, working with brands like Amazon, Nando's, Oxfam, and WWF. I then embarked on various entrepreneurial projects, one of which was a finalist in The World Design Capital. Now I do what I do best - brand strategy consulting. I have learned to create power brands by bridging the gap between the logic of strategy and the magic of creativity. This has earned me the privilege of working with seasoned entrepreneurs who value serious branding.

    In the automotive content world, there are two types of writers. The first one is the people who don't care about cars and write about them without emotions. The second one is the genuine car enthusiasts, aficionados, gear heads, car collectors who pour their passion, experience, dedication, and knowledge into writing. With over 15 years of experience, thousands of published articles, and a garage full of interesting machinery, I am that kind of car writer. I started my career in printed magazines, and publications then moved to work for some of the most active sites on the internet. Always on the lookout for innovative automotive tech, exciting barn finds, and twisty scenic route for that perfect early-morning drive.

    Think of me as a Content Whisperer. I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO I AM. I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. I approach every job intent on finding a happy ending and we aren't finished until we get there. HOW I GOT HERE. I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. HOW I DO WHAT I DO. Asking questions, lots of them, and listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ME. Read what my clients have to say about their experience working with me and my pledge to arrive at a happy ending, every time with every assignment. There are hundreds of reviews from clients that have become friends in virtually every industry and over thirty countries around the world. I look forward to hearing from you but know that I've made my practice not to take on work without conversation to first ensure a mutual fit. It's the path to happy, successful ending. Until then, wishing you good health and great success. andrew

As you’re browsing available brand strategists, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the contractors you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as: 

  • Industry fit. You want a brand strategist who understands your industry, so they can help you resonate with your target audience.

An effective brand strategy job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From writing creative briefs to interfacing with other members of the marketing team, list all the deliverables you’ll need.

BRAND STRATEGISTS FAQ

What is brand strategy?

Brand strategy covers all the planning that goes into building a brand. From crafting a style guide to keep your voice consistent, to working with your design team to ensure your brand’s aesthetic remains solid, brand strategy professionals bring consistency to marketing campaigns. 

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in brand strategy consultants: 

  • Branding 
  • Communication (visual presentation, persuasive writing)
  • Familiarity with collaborative tools such as style guides and creative briefs
  • Public relations (PR)
  • Market research and analysis

Brand strategists help businesses formulate strategies for building and maintaining their brands. 

Why do you want to hire brand strategists?

The trick to finding top brand strategists is to identify the branding services you need. Are you looking for someone with social media savvy? Will they be building a new brand from scratch or revitalizing an old brand? Your scope of work will have a direct impact on the type of professional you hire, and how much your project will cost. 

How much does it cost to hire a brand strategist?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced brand strategist may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their brand strategy services more competitively. 

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project.
