Introducing…Dakota Hersey BRANDS!

October 29, 2021

Brands

I am so excited to share the first of a few BIG projects I’ve been working on this year.

Introducing…Dakota Hersey BRANDS!

If you didn’t know, my background is in marketing. Helping businesses succeed through connecting with their audiences has always been my passion. I pursued a marketing degree at UNCW, then went on to work at multiple marketing agencies (even being the COO of one of them!). I love how marketing and sales work so closely together and how intentional messaging can change everything about your client experience.

Since taking my business full time I’ve really focused a lot of those marketing, messaging, and sales strategies on my own business growth…so I’m incredibly excited to now be bringing those skills to other businesses through branding photography paired with content coaching!!

A lot has changed about the world of small business in the last year. So many more people are relying on themselves for sustaining their families and part of growth is connecting with people personally. I believe whole-heartedly that one of the best ways to do that is showing up personally online.

Portraying your business online is so much more than a curated photo of you with a cup of coffee behind your laptop.

It’s about digging into the heart behind why you do what you do and how you want to connect to your potential customers.

I’m excited to pair my love of creating purposeful images with my content marketing brain to help you grow your business. 

This isn’t just headshots…this is creating a gallery of images that visually represent the ins and outs of your business – the process of how you approach things, how you want to educate your clients, what it actually looks like to work with you, etc. The possibilities are endless and totally unique to you.

I cannot wait to dive into this new offering and serve brands with the same passion, detail, and heart that I do my wedding couples and seniors. It’s going to be good y’all!!!

So how do we work together?

Yes!!! The most important question!!! You can learn more about the brand experience here.

If you are interested in learning more, fill out the form and I’ll reach out with the detailed package options and we can discuss what would make the most sense for your business goals.

I do have some exciting things planned for the future and how I will work together with my brand clients, so if you’d like to be the first to know make sure to reach out so I know you’re interested 🙂
