Who is Story Harvest for?

The Story Harvest is designed for service businesses who transform the lives of their customers for the better.

A Story Harvest is a unique methodology blending brand strategy and journalistic digging to create a story-led strategy. My background as a television journalist means I’m able to quickly understand new businesses and industries.

When we’re finished, your new messaging will make it easier to onboard new hires and to build a brand and culture that aligns with your vision.

You might be wondering:

The process involves Zoom (or face-to-face, if practical) workshops involving key stakeholders in your business and detailed customer interviews.

The deliverable is a words-only brand strategy. However I can help you bring your strategy to life in other ways, including video.

I partner with graphic designers who can help you with a visual rebrand or content creation.

Timing depends on the nature of each project and my availability. A full Story Harvest would likely take around eight weeks. Let’s start talking now.

What’s the value of being memorable? It’s hard to put a price on. I’m happy to talk you through successes I’ve had in campaigns with measurable results.

Yes, payments can be split over three or four months.

Sadly, no. If you’re in a hurry and want someone to write your website without doing the strategic story work first, I’m not the best person for the job. I’m most interested in giving you a story you can own, so it’s a longer process but more valuable in the long run.

Detangle your brand

Stories are everything. They illuminate your values. They show your potential. They share your vision.

Somewhere between the stories you tell and the ones others tell about you, lives your brand. Let’s close the gap with a story-driven brand strategy.
