Brand Love offers the following services:

Brand Love Strategy – offers business and brand strategy, cultural transformation and roadmaps for growth.

Brand Love Retail offers expert consultancy to re-energise and re-ignight Brand Love amongst consumers.

Brand Love Raise offers business strategy, financial modelling, preparation for pitching for investment or for a brand sale or the due diligence for a brand acquisition.

Our fund raising work begins with the creation of a comprehensive business and financial model. This clarifies how a business can succeed and scale and how the reasons to invest is best presented. We will help define funding requirements and the optimum structure. We identify a range of investors and manage the process. Our team has significant experience across a range of markets.

Brand Love also provides retail consultancy for retail brands whose customers have fallen out of love, who know longer see a compelling reason to visit, spend or engage either in store or online.

The Brand Love team include strategists, financial specialists, retail experts, investor coaches, marketing, creative and digital specialists.

What we believe

Brilliant brands, seasoned professionals and successful entrepreneurs are  humble enough to know that their consumers hold the key to their brilliance, but staggeringly, brands frequently still don’t really know how to create enough relevance to persuade consumers to fall in love with them. And stay in love.

Brand Love‘s approach is to harness the latent desire that exists in all of us, enable growth, empower management teams and re-ignight Brand Love

When a brand truly understands and anticipates consumer needs, short term desire can become Enduring Brand LoveTM.

Brand Love is a breath of fresh air in a sea of sameness. Their innovative and nurturing approach to building marketplace demand is equal parts creative and business rigorous. I’ve had the pleasure of working with their principals in the past and they do world class work for their clients.
