Having a clear brand story is now more important than ever.

We use story science to create your brand story

We define and craft your brand story as a guiding narrative for all your external and internal communications, using proven story frameworks. We then review your marketing materials to make sure they are reflecting the new brand story and using story structure for best results.

We then optimise your website for lead generation

Once we have developed a clear brand story, we work with you to create a high-converting website. We also establish your customer personas, map out the buyer journey, and then create all the content elements (eBooks, videos, digital & social ads etc) needed for your marketing.

We develop a marketing plan & promote your story

Finally, we develop a 12-month content marketing plan - outlining what traditional and digital media channels you should use to promote your brand story. We constantly test the effectiveness of each marketing channel and messaging and keep optimising both to maximise results.

"We’ve had a really successful partnership with Steve, Nicqui and the team over the last five years. They have worked with us on a brand transformation project that has touched every aspect of our business from product naming, through to print collateral, trade stands, content marketing and digital. The results have been phenomenal. Significant growth in market share, record sales and a Marketing Leadership award in 2016."

He is one of the best marketers in the business and has always been a great strategic sounding board for me. Steve is an accomplished speaker and has a deep understanding of brand storytelling. I’m excited to see this play out in Story IQ and to continue working with Steve and the team."
