ClearBrand is not just laser-focused on getting the answers that clients are looking for, right on the first day but arrives with the right questions. What they have done is built a system that can implement the finding of those answers using very good questions. Making sure that the strategies their clients and companies use throughout the marketplace get them the results that they need for leads and sales.
On both the creative and scientific sides, they have a great framework to apply the approach of getting marketing results, called the Clear Brand Marketing Flywheel. The best way to get creativity across is to start with building memories, and they use stories to do that. They light up their customer’s brains with stories and connect with them emotionally. Using distinctive designs to ensure that they are recognizable and memorable. When customers move into a buying moment, they are ready. Following downstream marketing actions to return much more value, less marketing, more time, less waste, and more leads in sales.
When working with any client, Josh will focus on questions and the first thing he will do is send them a comparative survey. Using stories to communicate and figure out where their sales are currently working, if they are a start-up, and what the competitors are doing. Gathering loads of information by constantly researching the product or service industry space that they’re in. The team will look at existing competitors and compile the initial strategy for building out the brand, or changing the way the brand is positioned without changing it much. This is the first step of collecting data to build out something recognizable and memorable. Once building out a solid foundation with story and design, they will make the offer available everywhere, making it easy for customers to buy the product or service.
The story lights up seven parts of the human brain as opposed to just facts and figures, which only light up two. The core of the story connects cause and effect. Getting people to recognize why they care about you, reaching as many users as possible, and looking at what the data tells them. Going back to the story and building more connections with more users. Understanding how to scale your income through connections and having a frame of how to apply creative balance with systems and structures that are sustainable and profitable.
