Branding and Brand Messaging, Emboldened

Because taglines don’t write themselves.

Be the brand that always knows exactly what to say. A brand identity goes far beyond a logo and color palette. It’s also about how you sound and staying on-brand with every piece of messaging you create. We’ll help your brand sing in its own pitch-perfect voice with a messaging audit and writing style guide.

  • What kind of brands need messaging guidance?
    Any brand that posts, publishes, or communicates with its audience and needs to establish a coherent identity in its messaging. This is essential work for brands of all sizes in every industry.
  • What is the difference between voice and tone?
    Voice is the broader personality and style of your brand’s messaging. We’ll find the overarching descriptors that will serve as the true north for every communications piece you release. Tone, on the other hand, is more specific to each piece of communication. It will vary depending on the audience, the content, and the goal of the message.
  • How do we gauge branding and messaging success?
    By using insights tools and iterative testing, we can determine what messaging resonates best with your different audience segments. You’ll see performance uplifts in areas like your email open rate, your social media reach, and your website engagement metrics.
  • Is this the same as copywriting services?
    No. Your branding and messaging guide will become a tool that your copywriters and marketers will use. We keep ours laminated on our desks and update them quarterly. Dorky? Yes. Effective? That too. If you’d like help with the implementation of your branding and messaging guides, we do that too! Get in touch to find out about copywriting rates and packages.
  • Can YellowDog also do logo design and visual identity?
    Yes! A messaging guide is best when paired with a logo and brand style guide. Work with our in-house designers to create a cohesive visual and verbal identity, tailored to fit.
