After going through the 80/20 Brand Bootcamp, I am so glad that I invested the time to do this.
Before I worked with Kelly and 80/20 Agency, I knew what I wanted and how I wanted to grow, but what I didn’t understand was how important the why is!
There were tons of questions that I needed to answer in the Brand Bootcamp that helped me create a path that I would never have seen if I hadn’t worked with 80/20.
By helping me understand my strengths and weaknesses, I can now make decisions to maximize revenues and—even more importantly—the bottom line.
They refreshed our brand and designed a new website highlighting exactly who we are as a company and what is important to our customers that I am proud to promote. This website design ties all of this together to bring our new brand to life.
I highly recommend the 80/20 Brand Bootcamp to anyone who wants to wake up and smell the coffee… and that coffee is the best you will ever have!
