"In September 2019, I acquired a web agency in Wisconsin called Tweak Agency. The previous owner had good name recognition and had many happy clients in the local area. Unfortunately, the business lacked a “True North” strategy for growth. We were mired in contracts with low-value clients. Traditionally, the business tended to win projects based on price.  

Soon after acquiring the company, I knew it was necessary to bring in a new way of thinking and fresh ideas. We needed a new brand and a strategic plan to make it happen. Luckily, I had met Sharif.

He and his team at Komi helped my new team think through the process of defining our new client personas. We put into words what we could do to differentiate ourselves in the marketplace and how to add more value to new future clients. The entire team came together for a two day Strategy Session.

For us, it was a big change from the traditional and sophomoric process of “let’s make a new logo”. This was instead far more in-depth and thorough.

We used the client personas to help shape how we write copy to our new clients. The strategy session helped the entire team get behind the new direction by allowing us to see what unmet needs we could address.

About a week later, we got to see samples of the example Stylescapes. We picked one that we all really liked, and were excited to use it as a visual blueprint for our new design.

Now we have a solid strategy, a new brand identity, plus a renewed excitement to grow in a different way by focusing on higher level clients. We are in the process of redesigning the website and creating the new packages for our future clients.

It has been a very worthwhile endeavor, and it was all made possible through the design and thinking that was facilitated by Sharif at Komi. I highly recommend the process of Strategy-First in order to gain a clear understanding of what an agency could become."
