WHAT PEOPLE YOU LOVE AREN’T TELLING YOU:
You can have the most remarkable talent, the coolest product, the most mind-blowing epiphany…but it won’t matter (or grow, or make money) if no one ever stops to listen.
So how do you stop them in their tracks? How do you cause a stir? How do you go beyond demanding attention and actually create it?
By having fun, fresh, interesting, different, outstanding messaging and marketing.
That’s how you make them care. And buy.
Say, for example you want to buy chemical-free, all-natural condoms. (Who doesn’t?) Which campaign catches your attention more:
“All-natural condoms for his and her health.”
“Naughty, by nature.”
“Think inside her box.”
“Your mouth isn’t the only hole that wants to avoid harsh chemicals.”
The last three, right? Because when a ton of businesses are shilling the same thing, standing out isn’t a matter of taste, it’s a matter of SURVIVAL.
WE GET IT. YOU HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS. LIKE,
- I don’t feel confident talking about what I do—casually or formally—because I can’t nail down that fresh spin or brand personality that will do my biz justice (and keep my audience from falling asleep.)
- I don’t want to waste money (or worse I’ve already wasted money) on growing my brand and I’m not sure where to start or what comes first or what to tell my copywriter, designer, new team member.
- My brand is clutching to a life raft amidst a sea of similar businesses and I’m worried I can’t stay afloat if I don’t do something soon.
- I’m playing paper rock scissors with my competitors instead of rewriting the game entirely.
- My message is manic and varies on every single channel: social, email, web, etc. So I’m afraid my consumer has no clue who I really am and subsequently forgets about me.
- I’m basically just winging it with my brand—cuz who the hell has time for this when everything else seems so pressing? Which means that every time I add a new offering, I have to figure out what my brand is again. (I’ve created a freakish Frankenstein of a brand message and it’s alliiiiiive.)
UM, YEAH BRAGBOOK WILL SOLVE ALL OF THAT.
- It’ll create a clever, creative backbone that will help you tell a streamlined, standout story.
- It wields the powerful tool of humor as a conduit for brand consistency; the KEY thing that you need to have nailed down before you invest in other branding elements—so that all that shit you do going forward is united, consistent, cohesive, and FUN AF.
- It’ll be the holy book you can use to inform new hires, contractors, brand expansions, investors, and strangers in the elevator on who you are and why you deserve the spotlight.
WHAT YOU GET
- A NEW, FUN-DATIONAL CREATIVE DIRECTION. When it comes to position(ing), we’re the mo-fuggen messaging Kama Sutra. We’ll bend your boring story over backwards and pick a creative angle that’ll have your audience saying, “U up?”
- YOUR UNIQUE HUMOR IDENTITY. We’ve identified the most converting types of humor—from wordplay to sarcasm to shock value to laser sharp wit—and back, and used them to create proven Humor Archetypes. These Humor Archetypes are then dissected, customized, and exclusively personified into your UNIQUE HUMOR IDENTITY—the representation of your fundational personality that showcases what tone of voice, vibe, energy, and tools-of-the-funny-trade your brand needs to utilize in order to compel your audience while communicating your critical information.
- KEY(ED UP) BRAND MESSAGES that will take the core selling points of your business and turn them into catchy, converting sound bites (think: elevator pitches, taglines, one-liners). These freshly-branded key messages will be so funny, compelling, and memorable that you —and your audience—will wonder where the hell this fun personality has been hiding all this time.
- AUDIENCE PSYCHE. Because you have to understand what your people truly want and why you are the best one to give it to them. So we tailor every creative element to their hidden desires and use the specific tones of humor they will resonate with.
- SHIT NO ONE WILL TELL YOU. Natch, we have some burning thoughts about your brand and double natch, we truly care and want to see you succeed. HENCE, we include an entire section devoted to expert feedback on everything from your overall strategy to words we think you should abandon, to cool ideas to hard truths.
- IMPLEMENT ME, PLEASE. We’ll show you specifically how your campaigns can come to life in case you’re overwhelmed with all the brilliant ideas.
