Personalized websites, marketing, and communications solutions for small businesses and nonprofits. 

I believe the best systems are the ones you enjoy using. I work closely with each client to develop solutions that feel comfortable and intuitive.

Responsive WordPress websites that integrate with your existing programs such as MailChimp, Constant Contact, Stripe, PayPal, and social media. Maintenance options range from on-demand content changes, to regular software updates, to zero long-term commitments. 

Marketing and communications plans that meet you where you’re at. For those just starting out, I create easy-to-understand goals and guides so you can grab low-hanging fruit without feeling overwhelmed. For experienced teams looking to hit KPIs or make the most of their budgets, I offer digital audits and/or help with specific tasks like social media, Google Ads, Amazon ads, newsletters, drip marketing, and more. 

Josh deLacy founded Branded in 2014

I learned the importance of branding and clear messaging while in working Washington D.C., where I lobbied Congressional staffers to pass environmental policies. I applied those lessons to two projects of my own: hitchhiking across the country and founding a creative writing community. The first project culminated in an appearance on NPR and a series of presentations across the country; the latter continues to foster emerging writers today.

Since then, I’ve been able to offer my experience to nonprofits and local businesses in Washington State and western Michigan. I help organizations I believe in distill their identity into a brand, market themselves, and establish a strong online presence. 

My own specialities lie in writing, web design, and content marketing. For other tasks, I bring in my team of logo designers, photographers, graphic designers, and other marketing professionals. I stay closely involved throughout the process, educating and supporting my clients every step of the way.

Whether you need a strategy consultation, a one-time project, or regular help, I’m happy to recommend solutions that fit your organization.
