The Purposeful Creative

Is this you right now? 

 
 
 

“My business idea has already been done. So many others who have been doing it better and for longer. How do I stand out?"

 

“Why are others succeeding on growing online, but I can’t seem to gain traction with mine?”

 
 
 
"I feel awkward about sounding so promotional in my posts. I wonder if I can be both authentic and profitable?"

 

“I don’t know what I’m doing wrong: I try to post about my offers regularly, but it’s hard when no one’s responding.”

 
 
 

"I always have a million ideas and can’t seem to clearly articulate what it is that I do."

 

“I was so excited to do this in the beginning, but sales have been slow to nothing… I feel like a failure, if I’m being honest.”

 
 
 

"There’s so much noise online and the market is so saturated – is there any chance that I’ll even get noticed? Should I even try?!"

 
 

WE FEEL YOU.

You’re not alone.

Feeling overwhelmed, insecure, lost about what to do first (or next), wondering “Who am I to even do this?” – all of that is part of the journey.

AND… you can overcome it.

Before the Purpose-Driven Branding course, I thought the only way I could gain new clients was to advertise on Facebook. But by taking the class, I was able to learn how to post authentic and strategic content that converts clients — without it being sales-y.

By following the content strategy/editorial calendar discussed in class, I was able to land 3 client projects through Instagram - without ads! So you could say that I was able to earn back the investment I made in the course in just a few weeks.

I’ve been blogging for 7 years... but after taking Purpose-Driven Branding — I was pushed to really narrow my niche and get crystal clear about my message. I was afraid to do this because I thought it would limit my audience.

But after applying the lessons from the course about narrowing my core brand message (and finally getting my own dotcom) — I’ve reached my highest readership ever. I can seriously say that no one was more shocked than me! Also, since becoming hyper-focused about my niche, I’ve had more friends/acquaintances and strangers message me. Some ask for advice. But others take the time to send me a message to tell me how I’ve helped them get through similar struggles by sharing my own. Those messages mean the most to me because it makes me feel as if I’ve actually made a difference.

I’ve turned what I once thought was a limitation into an opportunity

I joined Purpose-Driven Branding around the time I quit my job to pursue hosting full-time. I initially targeted 1 hosting gig a month, but while taking the course in July 2017 — I was able to book 1 in July, 1 in August, 3 in September — as well as book 10 more gigs in advance (well up to the following year!).

This might sound cheesy, but the biggest thing I’ve learned from this program was to believe in myself more. Since leaving my stable job, I’ve had huge bouts of insecurity. I felt invaluable, useless and dependent. The dreaded ghost month - August - was the worst time for me because I really thought maybe I made the wrong decision to quit my job. I didn’t receive inquiries, no closable clients — it was quiet. I had no money and I was struggling to keep afloat. Then suddenly, things started to look up. I started receiving gigs, closing clients, and events I’ve done would give birth to new ones.

INTRODUCING

 

Purpose-Driven Branding: Level 2

Build Your BRAND STORY

 
 

Get Intense Clarity About Who You Are & What You Do - And Finally Be Able To Articulate It In A Way That Feels Like You, Builds Community, And Converts Your Audience Into Customers

 

In just 1 week, you'll be able to take the million thoughts inside your head and turn it into one cohesive brand story that actually feels & sounds like you, resonates with people, builds community, and eventually - converts that community into paying customers.

Build out your official Brand Story Script & Storytelling Guidelines (template inside).


We believe that in this increasingly saturated online world: a clear, compelling, and authentic BRAND STORY is the most fundamental business tool you need — before anything else.


(Yes — we believe that getting this right *first* is more important than your logo or website or marketing strategy. Everything else stems from this.)

A core brand story is your most powerful weapon against all the noise online – and in your head.

A clear core brand story can guide your business decisions. When you’re clear about who you are, and what your core story is, it’s easier to determine:

  • how to price yourself

  • how to position yourself in the market

  • what products you should or shouldn't add to your mix

  • the most important type of content you should be making

  • the captions you should be writing on social media

  • how you should be crafting your marketing promos and deals

  • and so many other crucial decisions



Your core brand story is what you always come back to.



Without a well-articulated core brand story, it's easy to feel lost, all over the place, or get swayed by the latest thing you saw somebody else doing on social media.



But when you have a core brand story expressed in an official document: you can do make the above decisions with more confidence, because you always have that CORE to go back to.


A set of guidelines and brand talking points that will help you feel more consistent, focused, and legit. (Instead of shooting the wind and doing things haphazardly and trying to communicate and be a million different things this week, and then saying other things next week.)


This course is designed for creative entrepreneurs, mission-driven organizations, and leaders in their own communities — who need a structured and proven framework for sharing their message in a clear, focused, and compelling way… instead of overwhelming everyone by trying to communicate too many ideas all at once.



Find the words to clearly and confidently explain the essence of your brand in a way that connects with people AND converts them to loyal customers - without losing any of the heart.

Create a website homepage that truly & clearly reflects the spirit of who your brand is and what you do -- and confidently tells people how to buy from or hire you

What’s your alternative?

You can, of course, also DIY your way to a solid branding and marketing strategy. That’s always an available option if you’re not the type who invests in learning.

But what this workshop offers you is a full-on learning experience that will not only give you the framework for creating a brand story (that’s been tested and proven on many other students, and our business as well) – but also:

This workshop has A LOT of real-life examples, case studies, and no-BS advice about what mistakes to avoid, so you don’t end up:

  • Wasting money boosting social media posts, or running giveaways only to grow the WRONG audience (the ones who don’t buy from you)

  • Wasting time copying others’ strategies that don’t really deliver results (because they’re based on others’ stories - not YOUR core brand story)

  • Wasting BOTH time and money on business steps that should come AFTER you’ve really clarified your core brand story (i.e. spending money prematurely on your logo, website, copywriting, Facebook ads, etc.)</p>

I’m a big fan of learning as I go – but, if I was given the chance of learning from a coach that I really resonate with, whose teaching style works for me, and genuinely wants to help me succeed and grow – I’d take it.

I created this workshop because as they say, “Be who you needed when you were younger.” I always, always wished that I had a business mentor when I was just starting out: someone who could have guided me, helped me avoid the ineffective things that were sucking my time and money and energy away, and told me straight up the things I needed to hear the most.

If you’ve enjoyed any of our learning content, found it valuable and actionable, and it has motivated you to push yourself to become braver and dream bigger – then I really think this workshop is worth investing in.

 

FAQs

 

When does enrollment close for the Purpose-Driven Branding program?

Registration for the workshops will end on October 30th at 11:59PM SGT.

The pre-selling price (20% OFF) will end on October 15th at 11:59PM SGT - after that, no exceptions, the discount will no longer be valid.

The enrollment for Community Access learning experience (comes with a meetup, live coaching call, and free 2-month Instagram content calendar) will end on October 18th — or until all 20 spots are filled.

 

How much time do I need to devote to this?

If you sit down and binge-learn this, Netflix-style — you can finish in about 6 hours (complete with snack breaks).

You may also choose to devote 30-60 minutes each day for each module — if you choose this, it will take you about 6-7 days. You can also pace yourself even slower and go through one module a week! (Busy moms, we see you: the latter might be the most feasible schedule for you.)

There are several training videos inside, which, in total, add up to about 2 hours. After each training video, you’re given a few action steps (i.e. brainstorming activities, filling out worksheets, answering guide questions, etc.).

 

How long will I have access to the course?

For 1 whole year! Unlike an in-person workshop, where in you just attend for 1 workshop, and then bye, you go home -- in an online workshop, you get access to the course content for one whole year.

That means you can re-watch, re-read, re-take any of the missions any time you want.

Why is access just for one year? Based on our experience & feedback from MANY batches, we’ve learned that putting a finite timeline on access promotes TAKING ACTION instead of just knowledge hoarding.

Student feedback has been that they feel more lax and complacent if they know it’s going to be there forever; and feel more motivated by urgency to act when they know they have a deadline.

 

What format does the challenge come in?

The 'Missions' will be delivered in written modules inside a members-only site. There are worksheets that are also downloadable as blank PDFs that you can print out & answer with a pen.

All content is mobile and tablet friendly! You can watch or listen on the go.

If you’re on iOS, you can also download the Teachable app, and view the modules from there.

 

But Arriane seems so intimidating! *tiptoes away quietly*

Haha! I get that all the time -- but I promise it's not scary or intimidating.

Want to know what I sound like? CLICK PLAY BELOW.

 

Will I get personalized coaching or feedback?

Just to make it clear, this program isn’t a one-on-one coaching program - so there won’t be individual feedback.

However, if you join the Community Access experience - the included live coaching call is the avenue where you can ask Arriane any questions you might have about the lessons, or questions to help you get unstuck.

Due to popular demand, we also enabled individual feedback and critique on your class output as a course add-on. You can purchase it as an add-on if you enroll in Level 2, or in the Community Access experience.

If you’re REALLY interested in an even deeper 1-on-1 coaching program where I will work on your branding strategy WITH you (with weekly coaching sessions) — we do offer this at a more premium price. This is by application, so if you’re interested, you may email our team at team@thepurposefulcreative.com with the subject: One on one coaching.

 

What kind of people have you helped before?

In the past 3 years, I’ve worked as a consultant for select companies and small businesses, and have gone through a lot of failed experiments, successful campaigns, all types of marketing techniques, and discovered a few secrets on how to grow a raving audience.

By working with R2R, a fashion enterprise, we got clear on their message and their ideal client, and we were able to grow their Instagram followers from 2,000+ to 12,000+ in a little over a year.

But more importantly: we grew their online sales from PHP2,000/month... to an average of PHP80,000/month.

I’ve also done special consulting with individuals with side-businesses: For example, one of my students just started selling Korean beauty products as a side-business (outside of her day job). We strategized about how she can find customers: specifically through maximizing pop-up shops.

She ended up earning PHP30,000+ from one bazaar weekend, and got 70+ people to sign up for her NEWSLETTER!

Just recently, I was working with an artist & crafter who had a steady stream of sales, but she had no real strategy, because she had NEVER tracked her sales and expenses (for more than 3 years!).

 
 
 
 

REFUND POLICY:

Try this workshop for 15 days with our
100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE.

Before anything else, we DO NOT offer refunds for:

  • Level 1: Find Your Unique Niche

  • Any payments made via installment plans

We run our school a little differently: we value delivering RESULTS over all else. If you're a joy-enroller (just enroll in courses & then don't go through them, then demand for a refund) — this is NOT the school for you.

We honor refunds based on a code of teacher-student honor. Our genuine mission is to give you a program of VALUE, one that will deliver results, IF you actually do the activities.

It’s just like working out, or skincare — you can’t buy a gym membership or a skincare product, and expect results WITHOUT actually using it consistently, right?

And so, our refund policy revolves around action and completion.

We’ve worked hard on putting this learning experience together — and so we also expect you to do the work and give it your best shot. That’s why in order to be eligible for our 15-Day Satisfaction Guarantee, you must submit proof that you did the coursework.
 
To request for a refund, you have to:
Submit your COMPLETED workbook to team@thepurposefulcreative.com. Failure to submit this, or submitting the requirements after the 15-day grace period will invalidate your refund request.

If you’re able to submit this within that 15-day grace period (counting after your date of purchase), we’ll promptly refund your course fee. Again, to be crystal clear, if you do not include your completed workbook requirements within the 15 day period, no refund will be issued.
