Your company’s voice is what is going to make you stand out from the rest. It can delight or turn off your customers but more importantly, a well-thought voice is a key to starting a conversation and creating a relationship with customers that share the same vibe and values.

How does one construct said voice?  It has to do a lot with YOU and your WHY for starting this company in the first place.  Often founders are too close to the project and it is hard for them to see things as ‘outsiders’ (aka everyone else) does.

Talking this through with someone completely a million miles away from your baby company can help you to step outside and see how others perceive what you are working on.

You can use this opportunity to start planning HOW you want others to view your brand and what voice you want to project.

Mentors can also help you get started with WHERE you should be posting and promoting such things and give you that extra push you may need to JUST DO IT.

“Fantastic session with Theola! From the first few minutes, she provided incisive insight into our company, from the brand name to our strategy. Once we’d talked about the fundamentals, she suggested several thought-provoking frameworks for how to approach the media. She provided resources we could use and she suggested several clarifying, actionable exercises for us to complete. After that, we reviewed ways we could improve our internal processes to make our press strategy more efficient. Finally, we ended with next steps and time-based success criteria. I enjoyed her warmth, professionalism and keen insight. I’d highly recommend her for anyone looking to grow their media presence. If you want to level up, work with her!”

“Had a great session with Theola! She has a really unique and compelling way to approach content strategy by focusing on the essential and core human drives first. We also talked about brass tacks stuff, of course, but I’m really excited to see how much more relatable and human this approach makes my clients’ content.”
