One Point can make all the difference!

Influence is maximized by Stories clearly crafted and communicated around a core message and key points that support it.

Well crafted Brand Manifestos and Brand Stories are born out of a deep understanding for the core message and key points that support it.

Your key message map can be used to drive New Product announcements and Brand Launches that remain succinct with your overall mission.

Your message map can guide design plans, and the message itself can be incorporated into web and graphic design elements.

Speeches, Interviews, Media, and Press Releases, including Crisis Communications, are strategic moments to utilize a well designed message map that will help keep you on point.

Media training is more effective and concise when a well planned message map is reinforced consistently. It’s your opportunity to get everyone singing from the same song sheet.

Sales are easier and sales teams are more effective when they understand the company mission and the products. A well planned and communicated message map helps ensure sales quality from start to finish.

"Nancy's Message Map training was hands-down the best educational/training session we’ve done in my tenure here at the chamber. It was informative and constructive — thank you, so much! Well designed, really, in hindsight with a good blend of theory, experience with the City example, and then the workshop … a pretty impactful hour, hopefully, for the attendees! People were quite complimentary on the way out, which was nice to hear."
