Company description

Disciple Deep educates the audience sharing your story. We bring a PERSONAL connection to your brand. 

By investing in Disciple Deep today, you will make sure more of your investments succeed. 

We know you want millions of fans to loving what you do much as you do.  Unfortunately, the reality is it may not happen, that's why 80% of investments fail. In today's social media economy, we need to get people talking about you, and sharing your content, so you can beat those odds.

And let's face it, with this "exodus" away from hypey, ineffective advertising, customers want, and CRAVE a story-based, emotional connection with you.

 

1) Q:      What is the biggest problem we're solving? 

 

Your people love you and what you stand for. They want to get others following you, investing in you, and buying from you. But, they can't semm to make the appeal as good to their friends as you made it to them.

 

     A.)     It's not easy spreading the message you want them to share.

 

(That's why ad agencies exist, right?) Sure, you could pay to try and get new customers with hypey, ineffective advertising, but wouldn't it be better to give your loyal followers simple, non-threatening messaging they can share while having you stand out like a super-hero in the process?

 

With everyone having a video camera in their pocket, the whole world can advertise on YouTube, web, television. it is hard to find a unique media that will help  you stand out from your competitors, while adding a personal touch.

 

We help people care about you and get people talking about your mission.

 

Draw in the millions of raving fans that will promote and share your story for you.


Save money and time over and above your current advertising programs.


Keep customers engaged to extend the entire lifespan of your product by developing your legacy. 

 

Using the narrative art medium, Disciple Deep gives your fans a story to share with something good to say. 

 

We use the narrative art medium because it is the best way to tell your story and build confidence in your brand. Narrative art media is not threatening or intrusive like advertising can be. It's personal.

 

2) Who are our target customers and how are we getting distribution?


We target clients who care about their customers enough to get them engaged in their narrative.  

We cater to companies who care deeply about their mission. They pay the price to educate the masses on what they do. 

 

•  Smart businesses buy Narrative Art to stand the test of time.


* Savvy non-profits buy Narrative Art to call attention to important issues


* Proactive churches buy Narrative Art to create a better world


* Caring governments buy Narrative Art to promote national pride. 

 

Direct digital distribution to any mobile device or we can create as many physical copies as needed. 

 

We sell 1 product and then create it. (Customer provides distribution...unless they want us to print it and/or distribute it for them at a marked up cost.) 

 

3) Do we already have initial traction? You bet. Here it is.

We are a profitable company with our first client. Our previous company had 3 clients. We sold:


 
1 set of 12 narratives (CHICKASAW NATION, Ada,Ok)


2 sets of 10 narratives (GLENCOE/McGRAW-HILL -- Jamestown Division)

 

3 individual narratives (NATIONAL CENTER FOR STATE COURTS)

 

altogether bringing in a little over 4 million dollars. 

 

Our customers promote
 

LEGACY
CIVIL DUTY
HOPE
CULTURE
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. 

 

4) I'm sure you'd like to meet our competitors, even though we're better than all of them.

 

There are a lot of could-be competitors, but not many are tackling this market yet. We look to have a 1-3 year head start before we start seeing real competitors in this particular market. 

 

Here's some ideas on where our future competitors may come from and how we are going to beat them.

 

Traditional SPONSOR-BASED graphic publishers like Marvel, DC. Dark Horse, Image and IDW who tend to push their characters into your brand and tell stories they want to tell. Hoping you will leverage their characters and pay them to promote their characters on your brand. 

---We are better because ALL of these publishers focus on entertainment. They let  you promote THEIR brand. We create a specific narrative for YOU based for the sole purpose of educating the consumer and causing them to buy YOUR brand.

 

AD AGENCIES and CREATIVE BOUTIQUES like BFG9000, Rokkan, Mother, Leo Burnett and Noble that work primarily in traditional print ads, TV commercials, and digital media through Facebook and YouTube. NONE OF WHICH specialize in Narrative Art marketing.

---We are better because we have been doing this specific niche marketing for 10 years.  We are the  GUY  in THE  GARAGE -- We are the Jeff Bezos, Steve Jobs, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Walt Disney, Bill Hewett, Dave Packard--We are passionate about what we do.

 

Remember when people said, "What's this internet thing?" So, everyone needed a website. Now with social media paving the way, everyone needs their own narrative if they are going to create their tribe, survive, and thrive.
It is the NEXT BIG THING of INTERNET MARKETING. 

 

Have you actually seen the numbers on these similar narrative art-related properties?

 

Have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet? Iron Man 3? The Avengers? Marvel Comics and DC Comics are the leading producers of comic books which since acquired by Disney (Marvel) and Warner Bros. (DC) have spun their intellectual property to movies and gone main stream. This has skyrocketed the need, as well as the desire for more acceptability of this narrative art form than any other time in history

Marvel and DC own only ONE SEGMENT of the market (entertainment). It is our belief, that by using this medium to educate the public in EVERY OTHER SECTOR of the economy, we will be a billion dollar company. With license rights abounding for smaller business within a particular niche. 

 

We want to be the MARVEL of Branded Storytelling using the Narrative Art Media.

 

Walt Disney said, "I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained."

 

Our world has changed a lot since then. Education systems are floundering and we are at the dawn of a new technological era. It is most important that the future generations are educated. And if they can be entertained enough to remember what they learn, all the better for mankind.

 

This quote from Disney, still holds true:

"Of all our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language."


MARKETING STRATEGY -- Here's how we get to a billion.
 

The market is huge right now with many advertisers and companies working to brand their personal narratives at lower costs than before. Thanks to YouTube, FaceBook, and Google + advertisers can spend less, therefore their budget has a lot of room for a lot of different styles of advertising, including Narrative Art Media. 

We cater to companies who care deeply about their mission. They pay the price to educate the masses on what they do. 

 

 

Also, because words and pictures get shared more, we actually are in a prime position to market YOUR BRAND through social media with an engaging product line of many stories.

 

MICRO STRATEGY -- We will focus on niche markets to begin with to sell narrative solutions to solve main industry problems. These initial visionary sessions cost a bit more. 

 

MACRO STRATEGY -- Once the vision has been established through a narrative product line, smaller businesses can make use of the product for personal branding for a reduced license fee. Each with customized covers we can charge for.

 

BEHIND THE SCENES -- MICRO STRATEGY
-- We develop info products for MARKETING and ADVERTISING market on how to best use Narrative Art Marketing.


BEHIND THE SCENES 2 -- MACRO STRATEGY -- We develop an Artist Incubator info products for NARRATIVE ARTISTS showcasing them how to do what we do and make money with their art by starting new businesses. Future artists will use this as the Go-To Tuition instead of getting their Masters at Expensive Art Schools. 

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/rampage/wp/2014/03/28/the-most-expensive-colleges-in-the-country-are-art-schools-not-ivies/

 

BEHIND THE SCENES 3 -- MACRO STRATEGY 3 -- We own the license rights and Intellectual Property to brands that if they get picked up by movies or product development, we get a piece.

PROFITABILITY

Business model

Contract with companies to create a series of narrative art novels. From that revenue pay investors, sales, production and profit.

Printing, Tech, Marketing can be priced additionally at customer request.

Ideal tech and marketing scenario: Using Disciple Deep marketing call-to-action at the end of our novels (read on a i-pad, tablet, or laptop) our stories prompts users directly into marketing funnels to immediately take action (fill a survey, give email, vote, or to buy a related product or service). 

Ideal printing scenario: Large companies buy and donate books as advertising expense to share the right message with crowd they will want to market to a few months or years down the line. The readers remember the message so they are more apt to buy.

Also, in a world of digital devices, where everything is a TV in front of us--and everyone is on YouTube and the movies--those forms of media become overused. This widens the gap for new media, with highly skilled creatives, to offer some relief from the constant bombardment. The new media thrives.

HOW DO WE SCALE  - 3 WAYS

1. We are an agency model with a few twists. We go after LEADER COMPANIES OF NICHE MARKETS. which will create the FOUNDATIONAL messaging for any particular business. Just like franchising, we can adjust and sell already created content to smaller businesses that can just update a cover with their personal logo on it or business info. (This is for people in the same market niche or franchise) All these businesses pay a licensing fee. Plus, we can create custom branding for them as well.


2. We will be the MARVEL of Narrative Art Marketing. People will want to copy us. We let them. We OFFER RESOURCES to the MARKETING and ADVERTISING market. showing BEST-USE PRACTICES for Implementing Narrative Art MEDIA. This helps not only bring in new customers but expands an entire MARKETING market. with this new media. 

Our affiliate programs will help expand these programs which we can sell to marketers as the hot new way to market to customers. 

http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2013/10/14/study-digital-marketing-industry-worth-62-billion/

3. We scale on the back-end. Through our team creating these novels. 
We hope to grow the entire Narrative Art Marketing Field. and we will be at the top. We have on the back-end ARTIST INCUBATOR programs to show them how we do what we do. Currently "Deviant Art" is the premiere website for artist/designers/creators which has a community of 5 million creators. This is just ONE of the many creator platforms on-line. 
 
We create products taking creators through our process showing them how to successfully set up an art company machine making money with their art. Build in affiliate programs with these products. Now we have a big stake in owning the entire narrative art media arts community. 
Future artists will use this as the Go-To Tuition instead of getting their Masters at Expensive Art Schools.

Plus, we know people in general like art...
