What is 13 Ways Creative?

Message from Doug: The process of branding and marketing a community needs to be more than just picking a slogan and making a brochure. Your community will have greater success when it knows who its target client is, and tells them the story of who you are and what you are becoming, directly. We have been helping communities discover who they really are, and who they are becoming for years. Now we help those communities brand and market their story for success.
