No. StratPack walks you through all the steps you need to create great messaging prompting you for input along the way.
Once we gather the ingredients we then help you configure and position those elements into effective messaging.
The inputs come from you. The process and structure come from us.
I'm not a great writer. Can I really do this myself?
Absolutely. A big part of writing great messages is structure and that’s what StratPack helps demystify. You bring the expertise of your business and we help you find effective ways to talk about it.
But isn't a great copywriter still needed to put some extra polish on it?
A great copywriter is always an asset. We write a lot of copy for clients and have done it for many years. This product isn’t intended to fully replicate the benefits of a seasoned copywriting professional.
But we fully believe that if you can get the core structure of your messages in place, then you can create something extremely effective without using an outside resource.
If you want to use a copywriter though, StratPack still gives you an incredible foundation on which to build and test new ideas. You don’t have to hand off the entire process, you can (and should) be involved!
I'm a copywriter, is there any value in StratPack for me?
As folks who love, respect, and obsess over copy and messaging, we know you can alway use new methods and ideas for generating copy. We believe StratPack can provide a structure and process that you can use on your own or in collaboration with a client. Use it as a client discovery tool, to help explain concepts, or just in your own brainstorming process.
In short, yes.
What is the StratPack process based on?
The process is formed out of years of hands-on consulting work in marketing, strategy, and copywriting. That consulting work was in turn fueled and inspired by a wide variety of thinkers and industry best practices.
The goal was to distill all of that information and learning into a lean, curated process that lets you create great messaging quickly without taking shortcuts.
