building your brand online doesn't need to be complicated

We use proven frameworks to help you develop words, websites, and swarms of paying customers.

clear beats clever

If your an expert, you probably struggle to explain what you do to regular folks.

You try to be cute and clever. People end up confused.

You use jargon and big words. People tune you out.

You brag about your accomplishments. People don't care.

You know you can help people, but your words aren't making the impact you know they should. You feel like you're just wasting your life away.

Here's what is missing.

People don't buy the "best" product; they buy the one they understand the fastest.

You need to talk to people in a way they understand.

Story is the secret to your success.

 The customer is the hero of the story, not your brand.

With the wrong story...

No different than the competition.
People don't understand your value.
Sales conversations fall flat.
Growth is a constant struggle.

With the right story...

Customers know what you're about.
You charge what you're worth.
New customers are readily available.
You decide how much you want to grow.

Learn a story-based framework that actually works.

how this works

This isn't high school. You're allowed to have the nerds do your homework now.

PHASE ONE

Get your words right.

This is essential. People don't buy products until they read or hear words that persuade them.

PHASE TWO

Build a brand engine.

This year, we'll help dozens of experts and expertise companies launch high-converting marketing systems.

PHASE THREE

Make more money.

You're no longer a best-kept secret. Instead, people find you and are excited to work with you.

This is the way.

How to get people ready to buy

Mitch Meador is a messaging & branding expert, husband, dad, and weekend BBQ pitmaster.

KNOW YOU
LIKE YOU
TRUST YOU
BUY FROM YOU

Hello. I'm Mitch.

I'm a marketing and branding expert.

Six years ago, I worked as a Marketing Director for another company. I was underpaid and my work was underappreciated.

I started BrandNerd as a side hustle doing copywriting and web development. A year later I discovered some frameworks for getting right-fit customers who would actually pay what I was worth, so I left my job and went full-time.

Now I help other companies using the same frameworks.

If you're feeling stuck and like you've yet to tap into the full potential of your expertise, let's talk. Book a Strategy Call!

BrandNerd helps you...

Sound good.

Your words matter. Why? Because people don’t buy the best services, they buy the ones that compel them to do so.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long have you been in business?

BrandNerd was founded in January 2017.

Do you provide a full suite of services?

We specialize in helping local service brands, and our services are tailored to them. Our clients work with us because we understand their challenges and don't try to sell them something they don't need.

Our in-house specialties include:

  • Strategy for local service brands.
  • Messaging using the StoryBrand Framework.
  • Copywriting for lead magnets, email marketing, advertisements, etc.
  • Graphic design like logos, branding, advertisements, and more.
  • Website development for semi-custom or full-custom websites.
  • Reputation management systems to get great customer reviews.
  • Videos for websites and social media.

We partner with trusted vendors for:

  • Paid ads on Google and social media.
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)¬†to rank higher on Google organically.

While we're at it, here are some things we don't do:

  • Social Media Management. (It's just not our thing.)
  • Big, complicated brand strategy projects that burn cash.
  • Small, one-off projects without an eye on long-term results.
How long does your typical project take?

Maybe this is obvious, but project length totally depends on what is in the scope. Some projects last two weeks while others can last up to 12.

For example, for a new, custom-designed website, you can expect to spend two weeks on strategy and messaging and another 2-6 weeks on design and development.

Project terms and scope of work are agreed to upfront and you're always in control of the project.

What do your services cost?

There are three types of BrandNerd services: consultations, projects, and retainers. We aim to do such a great job on your project that you bring us on as your agency of choice.

Consultation packages start from $1,500.

Project pricing ultimately depends on your goal but can range from $5,000 to $50,000.

Retainers start at $1,500 monthly and can be customized to reach your long-term goals.

Let us know what you want to accomplish, and we can submit a proposal.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes and no. We offer payment options that can spread the project's cost out over a few weeks or months. However, we are not a bank, so we require payment in full before final deliverables.

Who keeps the rights to the work you do?

You will own all the work BrandNerd does for you.

BrandNerd only retains the right to display the completed work in our portfolio and third-party publications.
