Once upon a time…
You were at a gathering and someone asked, “What do you do?” “What have you been working on lately?”
You did not tell them the tax category of your business, did not share the keywords that closest relate to what you do, and you didn’t describe your tools and your general tasks.
You told them a story. You thought about your work and built a plot line.
When you have a human interaction about your business or profession, you talk about your work and why you do it (explaining the theme of your story.)
Then you build the plot with some highlights of successes and work that you think they will find interesting.
Finally, hoping to hear a bit of their story, you ask the other person, “What do you do?” In the best moments this leads you to discover ways you can help each other.
STORYTELLING. IS. MARKETING.
STORYTELLING. IS. NETWORKING.
Your brand is defined by your story, not by what you make or do. Your professional life has a plotline as surely as you have a bloodline back to your ancestors (who told stories to each other under starlit skies.)
Pixels and Plots is a storytelling company.
We help you to understand, and then to tell your story.
People are bombarded by ads, and numb to big claims and polished scripts. Though branding and marketing are integral to business, they are trigger words that bring up consumer’s defenses.
We build stories that meet consumers’ needs for authenticity, transparency, and connection.
People friendly productions; branding and marketing with personality.
We are as trained in language, history, literature and philosophy as we are in technology.
We look at what you’ve done, talk to you and your team, and identify your brand – the theme of your story – and help you stick to that story in business and marketing.
We cover your story like reporters with event photography and video production.
We produce engaging websites, social media posts, and physical media to pass that story on.
Not sure where to start? Perhaps you are already posting media and marketing but it’s not working out like you expected. Let’s talk. Branding is much more than a logo and tagline.
Imagine if the trailer for Star Wars focused on the love story between two characters? People would be disappointed when partway through the movie they realized this was a fantastical action adventure movie rather than a romantic comedy. Many people have similar problems with their marketing, problems solved by proper branding.
Tell us about you, about your work, about your business. With an outsiders perception, we can identify your core brand, the theme of your story. This powerful key will enable you to focus your marketing efforts where they matter, and will be the thread that connects your media and posts building momentum toward your marketing goals.
