Creating brands with
substance & soul
You might be a small business, but you have big goals; not just to earn more, but to live better and help others do the same.
We can help you capture the essence and soul of your business and translate it into a cohesive brand identity that resonates with your target audience.
Brands should be felt as well as seen.
We believe that brands should be felt as well as seen, meaning they need to have substance to them. Our brand strategy process helps us to get down to the essence of who you are and how you serve. We get crystal clear on your unique message and lay the groundwork for your brand design, marketing strategy and all lead generation efforts to follow.
Brand Identity Design
The way a memorable brand is created is through intentional and carefully chosen design decisions, informed by your brand strategy. Design is much more than the outward appearance of a business, brand or product. It goes so much deeper, particularly when it comes to brand design.
A website is your home base on the web and the foundation for all marketing efforts, whether you choose organic, paid or other methods. The design is important (and fun), but a technically sound website is even more important and will let you spend more time focusing on what you love.

Hi new friend,
I’m Elizabeth Andersen, founder of Counterpart Strategies, where I help owners of small and mid-size businesses develop a brand that’s full of substance and soul.
I’ve been helping companies of all sizes, from bootstrap start-ups to Fortune 500s, develop effective brand and web strategies for over a decade. I follow a battle-tested framework, but always leave room to see where the conversations guide us. I love the exploration involved in the brand building process. It’s usually in the unscripted conversations where we’ll find the gold we’re searching for that will transform your brand into the valuable asset it should be for your business.
What I love most is giving ambitious business leaders like you the insights, process, clarity, and courage to build a strong brand.
Let’s see what kind of magic we can create.

“Working with Elizabeth has been such a wonderful and joyful experience! “
I am particularly impressed with her ability to listen carefully, and ask such insightful and clarifying questions. In many ways, she has ‘heard’ our non-profit organization into a better place of understanding ourselves and the impact we hope to make. Because I believe she genuinely cares about our organization, I have come to see her as a partner with us in making the world a better place. The creation of our brand was beyond my expectations.

…and patients that have independently found my site have chosen to come to me because of my “professional looking website”!! I think that speaks volumes to the work you put into it and it is something that I am extremely proud of and grateful to you for!
