I’m Ann Kendall, brand messaging expert.
I help companies transform their brand stories and their most important marketing content, so their businesses can truly shine.
After building a successful communication career with an international consulting firm and two national brands, I opened my own brand marketing company in January 2008.
I love working with amazing clients who share my passion for making a difference. My clients are drawn to my strategic, artisan approach—an approach best suited for their most important communications.
As a seasoned chef may say, the secret is in the sauce.
I bring 20 years of experience crafting brands, messages and stories to each project. I’ve developed a finely honed, proprietary process to help you:
- Appeal to your audiences on a deeper level.
- Understand what your competition is really saying.
- Communicate what makes your business truly special.
My focus is on crafting custom messages just for you.
You’ll benefit from my unique combination of messaging experience. Marketing writing. Web writing. Employee communications. I understand the nuances of different forms of brand marketing and how to truly engage your audiences.
Since launching my brand marketing company, I’ve helped more than 80 national, regional and local brands find their voices and transform their brand messaging.
I can’t wait to explore the possibilities with you.
Can I help you realize your vision? It depends.
The people who get the most out of partnering with me tend to be:
- Great decision makers. You can make decisions and move on with ease.
- Collaborative. You value fresh ideas and different perspectives.
- Committed to growing and improving. You’re happy to invest in your business to achieve results. You despise settling for the status quo.
- Intellectually humble. You excel at what you do. Yet, you also recognize when an outside expert can do your brand some good.
- Organized. You appreciate a timeline and thrive with project structure.
I’ll share upfront, I’m not the right fit for every company. I believe…
- You deserve someone who is as passionate about your business as you are. If I don’t share your passion or think I’m the right fit for your needs, I’ll let you know early, making the best use of your time.
- Optimal outcomes come from collaboration. When we combine your industry expertise with my brand talents, we can create amazing results. If you’re simply looking for an executor or a quick fix, respectfully, I’m not your girl.
- In following a process. I find that the biggest “ah has” and the most amazing outcomes come from trusting the process. Clients often tell me that my process is as valuable as the outcomes. In many cases, the process triggers conversations they didn’t know they needed to have.
- You deserve to feel like I’m an extended member of your team. As you’ll hear from my clients, I care deeply about their success. I’m very selective about the clients I take on. When we choose to partner with each other, you’re more than just another project to me.
- Copywriting isn’t always the right first step. Having a clear message strategy can save you a significant amount of time, budget and headaches later. So, if we choose to work together, it’s not uncommon to start with a strategy as our foundation.
