Business Classes

What does it take to build an amazing brand? It all starts with the story.

When we our share stories, we can inspire others, ignite imaginations, or compel people to act. Good marketers know content that drives results starts with personality and authenticity. So what's stopping you from sharing your own story through social media, digital video, blogging, product innovation, and even basic sales collateral?

At the deepest level, my gifts involve the ability to forge connections in both the real world and virtual spaces through superior content. As a result, you may have played the interactive murder mystery game I wrote for Investigation Discovery, watched a video I wrote and produced for Comedy Central, read some of the many weird news stories I wrote for HuffPost, or shared one of my several viral satire pieces on Medium. 

But that's just the beginning of my own story. 

If you're interested in learning more about how I can help you share your brand story, email me at wmeers@gmail.com.
