A process with you in mind

People choose to partner with us because of our proven processes, industry expertise, and intangible lessons learned through more than a decade of successful B2B brand building.

What to expect

  • 01 Guided Input You want to feel seen and heard, because that’s the only way to create a brand that’s true to you. You'll receive tailored, tested prep work so we understand you and your business quickly and completely, and can ask questions that matter—before any work happens.
  • 02 Project Pulse Our dependable working cadence means you’ll meet with us and receive a deliverable every week. You’re involved every step of the way, and you’ll always know when and what to expect.
  • 03 Video Deliveries Video walkthroughs of our deliverables allow you to digest and evaluate the work on your own time. You can also use them to communicate the work internally and get buy-in from stakeholders. Plus, your asynchronous feedback allows us to make the most of our meeting time together.
  • 04 Iteration Following the project pulse, each week you’ll receive an iteration on the previous week’s work. This means that your input is heard weekly, your brand is built incrementally, and we are in lockstep with you all the while.

Intangibles

In our efforts to deliver an unforgettable experience, we are as committed to delivering on the intangibles as we are to delivering on tangible work.

What to expect

  • 01 Expertise We are specialists, not generalists. We bring the countless invaluable lessons we’ve learned over time. Our process includes continually incorporating new knowledge. Every day we learn, every day we improve, every day our clients benefit from those experiences.
  • 02 Coaching To succeed in a branding project, you’ll need to leave stronger than when you arrived. To ensure your success, we freely and frequently share what we’ve learned from the client side: from navigating executive input, to how to give feedback, to rolling out your brand, and more.
  • 03 S.A.U.C.E. Our customer experience mantra, Seek to Achieve Unforgettable Customer Experiences, calls us to do right by our clients, even when doing right is hard. We want you to walk away with great work made even better by a rewarding experience.
  • 04 Partnership When you work with Focus Lab, we become an extension of your team. There’s no “us and them,” there’s just us. It’s through the power of partnership, of collaboration, that we can work to unlock your potential.

I now understand why Focus Lab came so highly recommended. I've never had such super-serving from a vendor in my entire life.
