It’s our beliefs that guide us.

ABOUT US

After a decade of building communication solutions for our clients, we’ve learned a simple truth—passionate beliefs fuel strong brands. It’s why we developed our Brand Belief philosophy. By getting to the core of your brand’s purpose, we can move beyond product features and benefits, and position your brand to build deeper emotional relationships that connect to the heart. BLVR are experts at making Brand Belief with the power to inspire trust, loyalty, evangelism, and growth.

We believe all great brands:
01

Are Driven By Their Beliefs

A fundamental element of all great companies is a central ideology—core values and a sense of purpose beyond just making money. Strong beliefs attract consumers who share those values. For consumers, what you believe is usually more important than what you make or sell. Belief-led brands inspire deeper emotional engagement among customers and more impassioned commitment among employees.

02

Appeal To The Heart

Simply put, people buy based on feelings, not facts. Great brands know that creating a deeper connection requires moving beyond functional benefits and getting to the root of why people care—the badges of identity they want to wear and what pulls on their heartstrings. Appeal to the heart, and you’ll be able to win over customers' minds.

03

Make the Customer the Hero

It’s natural for marketers to start from their own viewpoint when developing their brand stories. We often hear clients say, “I have a revolutionary product, and it’s going to be great,” but one key element is missing—the customers. They are your reason for existence and the people you live to serve. The surest way to embed your brand into their minds and, most importantly, their hearts, is to build their needs, problems, and insights into the core of your brand story.

04

Disrupt The Market

In a world of followers, “me-too” offerings, and traditional marketing ploys, it’s hard to stand out from the crowd. By challenging the conventions that shape the standard approach to business, disruptors identify new white space that allows them to be distinct and redefine the market. From new business models to communication platforms, disruptive thinking allows your brand to stand out and connect quickly.

MAKING BRAND BELIEF SUCCESS

Your Brand Belief is how you live and breathe through your entire experience. BLVR’s four-step process, crafted from working with hundreds of clients, utilizes tried-and-tested strategic and creative techniques that unlock opportunities to build brand and business success.

We all hail from different countries and states, towns big and small. Yet we’re all drawn together by a shared love for storytelling. The people that make up BLVR bring years of experience, passion and drive to each client – building the most creative work to maximize your organization’s visibility, credibility and ROI.
