How much does it cost to do marketing with Story Collaborative?

Notice the “with”—we don’t do marketing for you, we do it with you. We tell stories collaboratively and that’s our namesake. We know that you are the expert on your business, and our job is to bring expert marketing to help you reach your goals. We don’t want to do what you can do for yourself, so we work collaboratively in all of our projects. How the work is shared is unique to each relationship, ranging from just your involvement in setting goals and reviewing outcomes, all the way to joining in the social networking and writing.

Now, down to costs. You’ve got options with us. You’d expect to pay more if you need more of our team’s effort, but we always want you to know what you’re getting. (Unlike the drive-thru where you never know exactly what is getting “supersized”).

Getting Started

We always start with story + strategy to ensure that your marketing is focused on your goals. Marketing without strategy is like archery without targets—every shot is a miss. And you’re just wasting arrows and everyone’s time. And your strategy can’t be generic, because your organization, your community and your goals are unique. To make your organization stand out, your brand story is built out as the centerpiee of how customers connect.

We dig deep into what your business needs by working with you on:

  • Your Brand Story
  • Customer Value Journey
  • Goals Benchmarking and Analysis
  • Personas
  • Competitive Web and Social Analysis
  • Search Engine Optimization Strategy
  • Content Strategy

Strategy with STORY will range from $400 to $6,000, and may be included in inbound services.

Warning: You may be surprised how powerful your brand story becomes as a result.
