WHAT YOU NEED

Every business is unique

Whether you're a start-up, or you've been serving customers for years, your individual situation plays an essential role in the types of branding solutions you need and the range of creative design and messaging that will deliver the greatest impact.

Start-Up Services

New business? No worries. Clokendagger offers a diverse suite of professional services to help you build a strong brand foundation. We'll help you create a lasting legacy that inspires others and engages users across multiple devices and platforms.

A Simple Touchup

Have an existing brand that needs fine tuning? We have that covered, too! From content marketing and SEO strategies to new promotional materials, brochures, and packaging, our a la carte services are designed to give your brand a fresh look and expand its reach!

Collaboration

Struggling to keep up with demand? As a strategic partner, we'll help you take on overflow, meet deadlines, reduce revision cycles, and keep your clients satisfied. We’ve worked with agencies and marketing teams across the country, and we know how to get your business back on track!

Complete Rebrand

Clients often come to us looking for a complete rebrand. This may involve a new logo, website design, marketing collateral, and content strategy. Starting on a blank slate sounds menacing at first, but with the right brand strategists and team collaboration, a complete brand redo is both possible and profitable for your business.

WHAT WE DO

Let's get to know each other

It all starts with a conversation. And the best part? It’s completely free! We offer complimentary consultations, so we can better understand your brand and goals.

Consultation

During our initial meeting, we’ll discuss your business, current marketing challenges, and where you want to see your company grow in the next few years.

We’ll walk you through our services and capabilities, as well as offer some insights (we call this a mini-audit) of how your site is currently ranking, how customers are finding you, and what your competitors are up to. This helps us identify whether your goals are aligned with what your brand needs, and what your customers want.

Just as you’re looking at us to find the right fit, we’re doing the same! That means if we discover you need services that are outside of our capabilities, we’ll recommend experts we know and have worked with, so you can streamline your search!

HOW WE WORK

Branding should be simple and strategic

We believe that collaboration leads to a successful partnership. When you work with Clokendagger, you can expect communication, strategic insight, and quality that's always delivered on time.

Proposal

Once we identify what you need, we’ll create a custom proposal that includes our recommended services and pricing to complete the work. No matter the size of the project, we'll help you find creative solutions that fit your budget. Next, we’ll send you the proposal to review and approve—pending any alterations.

Contract & Timelines

Once we're on the same page, we'll send you a contract that outlines the proposed services and includes estimated timelines and terms and conditions.

You review it, sign it, and then the fun part begins! We typically require a 50% deposit before work can begin.

Discovery

We’ll schedule a Discovery Session with you and any stakeholders you wish to include in the meeting. During this 1-2 hour session, we’ll meet either virtually or in-person to dive deeper into your brand’s target audience, attributes, and tone/messaging.

Gathering this information before the project begins is essential to its success and impact! We base the discovery on previous conversations from our initial consultation and then kick it into high gear by taking an in-depth look at industry trends and insights and assessing your current rankings, competitors, and key differentiators.

This meeting will also ensure we’re all on the same page with deliverables, deadlines, designated points of contact, and how to send feedback.

Deliver

You'll receive each creative file or document on the date outlined in your timeline. Content will be sent in the format (e.g. Google Drive, MS Word, MailChimp, PDF, etc.) and/or files (eps, png, jpg, gif, etc.) discussed during the Discovery.

Once you receive content, you'll have ample time (based on the approved timeline) to review with your team and/or partners and submit feedback or edits. Once we receive feedback, we'll provide requested revisions and final file versions upon approval.

*Note, timeline is dependent on collaboration between client and Clokendagger. Any delays in feedback and responses may impact deliverables.
