1. Clear Goals
Most businesses do not know where to start when it comes to growth—and if they do, their goals are not SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic or timely). Our process will help you clearly define your goals and move your business towards the objectives that directly impact your bottom line.
2. Clear Messaging
Products and services that can communicate clearly—will be more successful—even if their competitors have a better product. The proven StoryBrand process will help you clearly communicate your brand’s message that will drive business growth.
An amazing thing happens during our process, you are forced to think about your business in new ways that fosters innovation. The brand strategy is then interpreted and dramatized into a world-class creative platform (logo, website, collateral, packaging etc.).
To compete in today’s competitive and me-too marketplace your brand must cut through the clutter. And it must also keep the customers you have and turn those customers into promoters through great customer service, education and experiences. Our process will help you differentiate, keep current customers and grow.
BRANDS WE’VE HELPED
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“As the business owner of Outdoor Edge for 25 years, I agree 100% when they say, “It’s all about the marketing”. Garrison Everest has been key to our marketing efforts and has played an integral part in our company’s success for the past 10 years. When we first started working with Garrison Everest, they pushed us to develop a strong and consistent branding theme for our product packaging. This has paid considerable dividends and has pushed our sales to over four times the volume and greatly increased our brand identity and presence in retailers such as Bass Pro Shop, Cabela’s, LL Bean, Gander Mountain, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Walmart.”David Bloch, CEOOutdoor Edge
“Josh was the first person I met with when I first started my company 11 years ago. I can’t put in words how valuable he has been to me and my team over the years. He helped us initially name our products (including him coming up with the name Momentum Weight Loss System that we eventually sold the trademark for to Weight Watchers for $250,000) and helped us land a partnership with the 4th largest US insurance company. He flat out over-delivers in every way! Without Josh my company would be a shadow of itself. To call him brilliant, valuable and a tremendous resource would be an understatement.”Jonathan Roche, CEOBreakthrough HW
“Josh, Thanks for the great job and superior turnaround.”– Senior Marketing ManagerPlatts/McGraw-Hil
“Garrison Everest’s expertise in corporate communication and marketing was most valuable to us. After investing $180,000 in computer-based training, we were looking for a way to increase traffic to our website’s Learning Management System. Garrison Everest created an in-house advertising campaign that increased traffic and the overall number of courses completed by employees. As a result, our staff is better educated and performs more efficiently and effectively when compared to one year ago.”David IglickiDirector of Training, Great-West Life
“My company had a very positive experience with Garrison Everest. We originally contracted with them to develop our new company’s brand and help us set some initial brand standards. We then extended our contract to have them develop a new website. The process was very efficient, we received all deliverables on time, and appreciated their creative process which incorporated all our feedback and gave us excellent options to choose from, and view different iterations until we got it right. Bottom line – the work product was great and the fees were very reasonable.”Jeff BergeDirector of Marketing, Altura Associates
