Hi, my name is Justin Veenema and I'm the founder of Brand Stories™. I started this initiative to help individuals and businesses communicate their unique value online to build their audience, gain new clients/customers and achieve greater success.
Over the last 8 years I've worked in high-growth tech startups like Unbounce, Clearly.ca, Indochino and BrainStation to build their online communities and attract/retain lifetime customers.
If there's one thing I've learned in that time, it's that rich digital content like video is the most powerful form of marketing - period.
Since moving to Kelowna in 2017, I've come to the realization that there are so many incredible businesses here that are struggling to attract + retain customers at scale. Most of these smaller companies (and entrepreneurs) have incredible products and services, but they aren't utilizing the same growth and marketing strategies that the big companies use to grow and scale their businesses.
That's a shame, because high-converting video content can work for any business - big or small.
These video implementation strategies can be used to grow a local coffee shop, sell more products, grow an audience, communicate an idea or shift public perception on an idea.
That's why I've made it my mission to help businesses unleash the power of video. 💪
I've helped local businesses like Tonit, Start Fresh Kitchen, QB Gelato, Sandhill Wines and CapriCMW tell their stories online and improve their social media advertising strategies to rapidly convert new customers. By adapting the same growth-hacking strategies that we used at high-growth startups, anyone can elevate their brand and see immediate and lasting results.
If you own a business, this means breaking down what makes your product/service unique, then building high-converting photo/video assets to tell your story, promote your brand, boost your sales and develop lasting relationships with your customers.
For individuals, this means building your personal brand and growing your network online, becoming known as the leader in your field, vastly increasing your chances of getting hired/recruited, landing new clients or even transitioning into the career of your dreams.
You're doing awesome stuff. Let's share it with the world.
Still have questions? Let's grab a virtual coffee and chat.
