Uncover and expand the full potential of your organization

Change starts with
a conversation.

We’re a marketing firm in the business of change. Leaders come to us with a vision for something different. Something more. Once we understand their goals, we advise on the best strategy for achievement. This plan becomes the trailhead of our journey together, from brand development through website launch and content campaigns.

Typical client Journey

Proven Process

Practice Areas.

While we welcome clients in almost any industry, we have deep expertise in these areas: 

Food.

The Muse story is rooted in foodservice. We started in restaurant branding over a decade ago and we’ve grown to advise clients at almost every stage of the food system, from regional growers to the biggest food manufacturer in the world.

Wellness.

Our experience in change management translates well to wellness clients, where behavioral change is often required for real results. Using our proprietary Change Stage Framework, we show wellness leaders how to best connect with prospect motivations and deploy content to increase customer lifetime value. 

Belonging.

Membership- and place-based organizations choose Muse to promote their values to current and future members, residents and business owners. In addition to brand strategy, these clients often require strong, compelling content that cultivates community across online hubs and in-person events.
