Strategy | Brand Platform | Content

Your brand and your story are what sets you apart in our cluttered consumer landscape.

Some brand elements are intangible (reputation, customer experience, personality), while others are visible (logo, tagline, online content). For a brand to be effective, all elements need to work together in a brand platform.

Your brand platform becomes the foundation from which you can develop strategy that guides how you will tell the story which engages your audience and moves them to action. The tactics for content marketing and public relations that will support your strategy are where you can bridge the divide between where your organization is today to where you want it to be tomorrow.

No, it’s not easy. And? The effort is worth it.

WordBridge helps you build your brand platform, define your communications strategy, and tell your story through messaging, marketing, and public relations tactics.

Let’s get started!


Plan it |

So, you have a brand platform.  Now what?

Well, what are your goals? To increase sales, build awareness or be a category influencer?  A strategic communications plan gets you organized, and it doesn’t need to be complicated  to be effective. A realistic plan will keep you and your team focused on the same objective, helping you to resist the urge to go after all. the. shiny. things. our digital landscape has to offer.

Does your story roll off your tongue? Wait, back up. Do you know your story, or your brand? Bringing a fresh perspective, and working collaboratively with you and your team, I’ll help you identify your brand platform, your audiences, your story lines and the most effective channels that will raise the value and awareness of your brand. A communications landscape assessment looks at and evaluates all your existing content to see what’s working, and what isn’t.  I help you identify your main storylines, your tone and your unique position in your category.

Tell it |

Brand platform? Got it. Communication Plan? Check. Your foundation is in place. Now what?

How are you engaging your target audience? Strategically or whenever you can find five minutes? If it’s the latter, it may be time to outsource! I create owned content with an appropriate, approachable tone and a realistic cadence to the audience and delivery channel.

More than just hitting a word count or character limit, I craft messages so they align with your strategic goals. I help you take your ongoing or special project communications from here to there.

Laura Wieking, Strategist and Writer

I don’t hesitate to dive into a client’s communication habits to figure out what works, what doesn’t, and what is missing. I am happiest digging through complex and unorganized source material to distill and deliver audience-engaging content across multiple platforms and through a variety of delivery channels.
I shape communication strategies and create content to help clients tell their brand story while retaining its integrity and unique essence. I create and execute plans to help private, public and nonprofit organizations move through work-a-day communication strategies as well as significant business changes.
As a strategic communications pro, I’ve placed the national media spotlight on the Northwest’s luscious pear crop, coaxed regional media to tell the people side of finance through credit unions, created foundational messaging and PR tools for statewide government initiatives, managed ongoing website content programs, run customer success story programs, defined social media strategies, planned and executed events, and launched public relations campaigns.
I want to work with entrepreneurs, schemers, and dreamers. Is that you? Let’s get started!

Let’s work together

I think a great place to start is an in-person conversation so we can take a little time to discover where you’re at today, and see if we are a good match to get you to where you want to be.
