About ABS Consulting
A Brand Strategy (ABS) Consulting was founded by Afton Baily Griffin in 2013 after years of in-house strategic marketing consulting in various industries. One unifying factor of the successful nonprofits and companies Afton worked with was their ability to understand the big picture and formulate a comprehensive strategy to execute their goals.
A Brand Strategy Consulting is more than just a name: fundamentally, a brand strategy is the difference between the success and failure of your company. Without a succinct, defined brand strategy your products and services are just additional noise in the saturated marketplace. We provide the tools to give your company the edge it needs over the competition.
We provide hourly and retainer-style consulting services for web development, marketing, digital public relations, and strategy. Contact us today to start making the vision you have for your company a reality.
