If your marketing's not performing, your Brand Strategy could be the problem.
Brand strategy drives business success.
When something's wrong with their marketing, most marketers overlook their brand strategy.
Instead they look at their ads and traffic sources. And sometimes their sales funnel. But rarely their target audience, positioning and offer, which all sits inside brand strategy and impacts their messaging.
Whilst marketing is about presenting the right messages, brand strategy heavily influences those messages.
Marketing is how you make a good, surface level impression. Whereas branding goes deeper to impress your prospects with your substance.
Just like relationships between people, a lot of groundwork goes into building brands. Before presenting an offer, these relationships are nurtured and trust grows at each touchpoint. All the while, you're weaving in your brand story to build deeper, more meaningful connections.
It's an inside-out view which is a more authentic, human approach. That's good for brands because people like brands that are more human.
Without a well-crafted, human-centred brand strategy, your business could die a death of a thousand cuts.

Will has always impressed us with his creativity
We have worked with Will Roffé for the past 10-years. Will created our successful brand strategy before working on our suite of insurance products, along with developing and writing our corporate brand story that has formed a significant part in us creating and maintaining an engaging staff culture.
Will re-positioned our parent company brand, and brought cohesion and simplicity to our brand as we moved our individually branded products into a package of products with commonality and unity between them.
Will wrote our website and a chunk of our backend portal for our brokers and partners. He has worked on geo-location campaigns, SEO campaigns, digital billboards, brochures, trade show content, letters, our quarterly magazine, digital and print ad campaigns and more.
Internally, Will helped us discover and formalise our company culture, then wrote our culture program and documentation. This involved team workshops where he was able to get the right information out of the team to then formulate engaging and memorable content that inspired us and we could all get behind. The results of this have seen us consistently measure above 90% for our staff engagement surveys.
Will is an expert brand strategist, strategic copywriter and ideas generator. If you need strategy, ideas, and/or the written word, Will should be your go-to person. He understands people and how to connect with them using the right strategies, language, tone and ideas.
Our business has gone from strength to strength and we appreciate Will’s valuable input. We now have a strong, unified brand with a great market presence. I have no hesitation in recommending Will.

Will creates Copy You Feel
Will Roffé created Crowne Plaza's positioning and Copy for our websites and other collateral. We felt well taken care of, with Will guiding us throughout the process. We especially liked his ability to work with the senior management team, either face-to-face in focus groups or over the phone to complete the project, which has been smooth.
Will captured all nuances of our vision and translated it onto paper during the given time frame. We were so impressed we then engaged Will to work with our Holiday Inn properties.

I am very happy to recommend Will.
We worked with Will Roffé, initially to get him to write five Architectural Award entries. We ended up winning four of our five entries.
We then engaged Will and his team to create our new brand identity system with all associated materials, and then write, design and develop our new website. The website got rave reviews, so they nailed it!
We have worked with Will for several years and our practice has continued to go from strength to strength, with A LOT (!) of extra work. I am very happy to recommend Will to you.
