Values-driven, results-minded brand strategy agency with deep roots in digital. We’re the agency for founders who take their business very personally.
Around here, we believe that old saying: It’s not personal, it’s business is seriously flawed.
We’re a brand strategy agency for folks who know that business is not only a place to make money, it’s a place to make a difference. If you see your company as a way to make the world a kinder place, create great jobs, AND make a great living-we’re the values-driven marketing agency for you.
What is value-driven brand strategy and why is it different than other branding and marketing structures?
Marketing that puts people first and is guided by your company values一not just sales一is a conscious choice. In today’s hyper-data-driven world, it’s easier than ever to manipulate people into buying from you.
If you’re reading this, you’ve probably accidentally-sort-of-on-purpose done that a time or two. We get it, we’ve been there too. Some savvy bro-marketing brand (we’re looking at you, 20-year-old Facebook Ads Coach on Instagram) swears he can teach you how to get all the leads you ever needed in six simple steps. So, we follow his lead and set up a prospect funnel that includes gross-sounding tactics like a “tripwire offer” and a “squeeze page”.You might wonder why these tactics sound more like a way to collect on a bad debt than to gain a raving fan. But you do it anyway because, well, it works, right?
And it might, for a while. That is, until an algorithm changes, a consumer base gets wise to what’s going on, or you just feel so out of alignment with your integrity that you can’t do it anymore.
That’s where Do Better Digital™ comes in.
We design custom brand strategies for conscientious companies who really mean it when they say people come first.
Think of us as the brand strategy agency for kind companies.
But wait, I thought you were a digital marketing agency?!
In short, we are.
The long version?
In a 2020s kinda world, digital marketing strategy is brand strategy.
When you’re considering your brand, it’s critical that your agency understand the dynamics of digital. Yes, there are many traditional spaces like public relations and local advertising that still matter. But digital is dominant. Every day we work with companies who have worked with brand strategy agency types who don't understand digital marketing and mediums. This leads to fragmented branding and poor results.
At Genevieve Digital, we combine high-level, values-driven brand development with the micro-actions required to do digital well. It’s an end-to-end approach to designing a holistic plan so your work in the world is easy to understand, sustainable, and joyful.
What’s It Like to Realign My Strategy with Genevieve Digital?
In one sentence? Less stress, more results that feel awesome.
Working with our brand strategy agency is likely to feel very different from your past experiences. Our process centers connection, co-creative idea generation, and your company’s values. All new relationships begin with our proven three-step process.
This foundational process is the same for every company, whether you’re a multi-million dollar brand or a one-person shop.
Realign Your Brand Strategy in 3 Steps Means:
Realign with Your People
We begin with a buyer persona deep-dive workshop to help your team connect with your buyer’s unique stories. Then, we create custom persona documents for you to share with employees and contractors to stay connected with people-first at every angle.
Brand strategy agency work is co-creative, deep work. Our team has core experience in strategic branding, social media, design, and impact-driven business models. Our packages begin at $5500 and are quoted based on the size and breadth of your needs. They are always the first step to working with our team.
Once we’ve completed your foundational realignment strategy, the team at Genevieve Digital will work with you in one of our three retainer-based relationships. Don’t worry! You don’t have to choose now. During your info call, we will help you understand which choice is best for you.
Work with our team to decide which package is right for you based on:
Our brand strategy agency doesn't set pricing out-of-the-blue. We don't believe in the "Charge what you're worth" philosophy because we are all PRICELESS as humans. We DO NOT guess and we DO NOT sell you things you don’t need. That’s part of our commitment to our own values一we believe branding and marketing works best when it’s the right thing at the right time and for the right cost, and knowing that requires the context of understanding where your business is at right now.

The Institute for Embodied Living
Working with Genevieve Digital was - and I’m not exaggerating, an absolute joy. Partly due to finally getting some strategy and functionality to complement my branding (pretty websites are great, but they don’t build businesses!). Partly because the project was put together in a way that had plenty of space for my creative process and honored my schedule.

Tree Care By Robert Miller
When we first started working with Renia, I was frustrated with our web presence and felt confused about what to do next. Renia helped me to understand my target customer better, streamline our branding, and helped us to rank for stuff that makes sense for our business…Renia helps us a lot with our online marketing, but what matters most to me is that I feel like we are working with a true partner.

We start with weekly co-creative sessions during Onboarding, then shift to bi-monthly sessions after Onboarding. Here is what that looks like:
Weekly Co-Creative Sessions during Onboarding - While we're getting to know each other, we have a structured set of weekly 60ish minute sessions that help us get to know each other, brainstorm ideas, and create your foundation.
Bi-Monthly Co-Creative Sessions after onboarding - Once onboarding is complete, we move to every-other-week check-ins.
Co-Working on Big Deliverables, as-needed - Sometimes, on big deliverables, we jump into co-working sessions which makes divvying up tasks easier. These are almost always led by me, because I've occasionally been accused of being a commander.
I run point on our projects, but we have several other people on our team. For clarification, they are W2 employees NOT contractors, with the exception of our podcast producer. You can read more about them on our About Page. We go through an intro process with everyone on our team during onboarding to help you feel comfortable, I am always the one running your strategy.
It's something we do a lot of internally. All our team has QR docs about their process that we can share with you (and help you create) too. Also, we are actively participating in Trudi Lebron's Amplified Impact Mastermind right now to help us with some of these areas where we might have blind spots.
If a website project is a part of our work, we help you set your website up for success using themes through WordPress. Each project is different, based on the scope of work and the retainer size. During your proposal phase, we will agree on what your project looks like and what deliverables are included.
