Kickstart the Creative Process

Stimulus' Storymaps get you started with visual storytelling
even if you have no experience and don't consider yourself a "creative."
(Hint: We're all creative!).

You need more prospects, qualified leads and happy clients

You’ve seen other companies using multimedia marketing materials like video, photography and microsites but have a lot of questions about how to do it right. You think you’re ready to take the leap and produce content but don’t have a clue where to start…

  • What is the story we should tell?
  • How long should a video be?
  • What is the right medium and style for us to work with?
  • How can we integrate new media into our larger marketing strategy?
  • Why are we bothering with this project again?!?

At this point, you can either sandbag your marketing team and force them to waste time learning video from YouTube or you can pay an arm and a leg to hire an overpriced agency to do the production work. You don’t have the time or the money for either.

 
 

Introducing Stimulus StoryMaps

A plan for growing your company, one piece of content at a time


First, you’ll get over a thousand words of actionable advice for creating compelling content.

Then, we write up a dozen-or-so “first impressions” that we have about your company’s story and how you can begin to share it with the world.

Next, we write up a list of stories and the potential media projects that we would create to test out these stories. This generally forms a solid six-month plan for media production.

Finally, we’ll provide overall thoughts on your marketing direction. Hopefully we can offer a solid perspective to get you out of any creative ruts.

We’ve designed the Storymap so that you can take any of this advice and create multimedia content on your own without ever hiring anyone to do it for you. If you’d like us to help you with the execution of these projects, great! If not, you won’t hurt our feelings, we just want your stories to be heard.

Do you struggle internally about what new marketing strategies to test?

Websites with video have conversion rates 64% higher than pages without. It can’t hurt to at least test a video on a webpage.

Do you want to build visual content creation and video into your marketing process, but don’t know where to start?

You can take this document and form a solid roadmap. I provide recommendations for what software you should use and how you can best use it, as well as basic video topics and structures.

Do you want a low-risk, easy-out consulting relationship?

Stimulus' Storymaps are a terrific way to determine how we work together. If you’re wondering how we work and whether we fit into your overall culture, this one-off commitment reduces your risk as much as possible. And if you do want to continue to work together, we’ll apply your Storymap fee to your first payment.

Do you like saving money?

We offer this service extremely cheap for what you get. If one video or multimedia project improves your sales by 1%, then a Storymap is going to be worth it for you. But even if the project falls flat (which is unlikely!), that’s still a lot of knowledge that you can apply to future efforts

 
 

Don't Take Our Word for It...

We are a technology company that needed more than just a videographer. We needed a team that works to understand our product and develop the creative concepts to accomplish our business goals. Stimulus was terrific every step of the way acting more as trusted content advisors than just video guys. Can’t wait for the next project to collaborate.

I just had the most value-packed session with Chad at Stimulus. Highly recommended for guidance on getting ROI from video.

Stimulus’ Storymap helped to strategize the best way to connect with our customer base and drive interest to our product. Then they delivered an awesome, high-quality video that we are proud to showcase on our website.

When you sign up

If you went to an agency for a report like this, they would charge you thousands. We run our business lean, with smaller margins, and pass the savings on to you. Stimulus' Storymaps are only $497. And just to reiterate: if you aren’t taking action already, then you’re wasting money as you read this.

Right after you pay, we’ll send you a five-minute questionnaire about your business. Once you send in your answers, we’ll schedule the 90-minute Storymapping Session where we take a deep dive into your business.

We then write up the full report, including all of our discovery work and notes from the Storymapping Session. Once we’ve sent it, you can email us one round of feedback and clarifying questions if you want, and we promise to respond to everything.

And if you’re unsatisfied with of our work for any reason, we provide an unconditional money-back guarantee.
