Some of us have been planting trees
At Brandkind, we’ve been working with customers in the pulp and paper industry for many years, and we regularly write about sustainable forest management and forest regeneration. For a few days this summer one of our copywriters, Peter Cura, exchanged his keyboard for a “pottiputki” and headed off to regenerate some forest himself.

Top 5 Tips for SEO
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is one of the most important factors when creating content for the web. It doesn’t matter what you say on your pages if nobody can find them. That’s why we at Brandkind compiled a quick list of useful tips for writing content that both Google and your human audience like.
Reforming a brand through partnership

Leather, willow, and sounds of home
Quite apart from clashes between social norms and cultural expectations, how can we best form relationships in situations where we seem not to have very much in common with those around us?
Brandkind People: Sanna Wester
Brandkind is growing. As part of our strategic plan, Sanna Wester was appointed as the new Chairman of the Board in April. We spoke with her about her experience, future goals, and how to be happy.
Working together towards an energy-efficient future
As one of the world’s foremost technology companies, ABB is a leader in energy-efficient answers to modern problems, for example in buildings and transportation networks. But these solutions require more than standard marketing campaigns.
Sustainability is everyone’s business
In the coming decades, only sustainable businesses will be able to thrive and survive. Those who refuse to change and stick to the old ways of the past will stay there. However, being sustainable and trying to improve is not enough. Businesses also have to let their customers know what they are doing. But how can you communicate it clearly?
Making videos that hit the mark
For marketers, video offers an expanding channel to engage potential customers. It lets you show rather than tell. It supports your sales team. And it’s an emotional media that reaches multiple senses all at once. With the right combination of story, images and soundscapes, a video can be both informative and entertaining, grabbing attention, holding interest, and leaving a positive impression.
Your most important audience is within
In your quest to increase sales and brand awareness among existing and potential customers, don’t make the mistake of forgetting your most important audience and asset – your own employees.
Add appeal to your annual report
How will you present your next annual report? Would you prefer something that supports your brand as well as delivering facts and figures?
20% of your marketing investment brings 80% of its value
If the facts would always speak for themselves, there would be no need for creative marketing concepts or actions. But the truth is that there is always a vast array of competing solutions available for any B2B customer of yours, and in many cases the differences between these solutions is marginal.
Animations that help you sell
Whether they’re a small detail in a video or the main highlight at a trade stand, animations are always an effective way to catch your customer’s attention. At Brandkind, we have our own animation experts in-house who can take care of everything from simple 2D animations to photo-realistic 3D product images.

Creating marketing impact by translating high-tech knowhow into commercial storytelling
Brandkind, an agency specialized in creating marketing communications for industrial and high-tech clients, is riding high and swimming upstream, against the current economic trends. Two years ago, the agency redefined its strategy, focusing on serving a B2B clientele in the technology sector. And it has paid off.
What’s your story? – The role of storytelling in B2B marketing
My father taught me long ago that an engaging story is more important than the truth. He explained that this was just as much the case in business as it is when telling a story around the campfire. Sounds bad, right? Well, that’s not the case.

How to Give a Good Brief
In this post, we take a look at the most important part of any project: the brief. Here at Brandkind, we’ve seen all kinds of briefs from good to bad to non-existent. And still, we get the work done. But to make things run like a well-optimized machine, a good brief is best. So what do you need to do to give a good brief? Read on and we’ll tell you.
Creating an Engaging Annual Report
We specialize in injecting added value and interest into Annual Reports. While the financial statements, official numbers, and data required by law are generally provided by the customer, there is a lot we can do to give the publication a boost.
Customer satisfaction means the world to Brandkind
Well, that was a pleasant surprise! To allow us to continue to grow and develop, we commissioned Trustmary to carry out an independent customer satisfaction survey (10/2019) to gather feedback about our strengths as well as areas requiring our attention. A Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 60 is a great indicator, showing us that our customers appreciate the work we do for them and the way we do it.
