Helping Sprout Massive Worldwide Impact with an Impact Karma Seed
You are a founder who is hell-bent on changing the world. But that world changing impact you’re striving so hard to create is being held back by your brand story and marketing.
Let me paint a little picture to illustrate what I mean by being held back. This is an extract from my new book Impact Brand Storytelling – A how to guide for founders hell-bent on changing the world.
On a day like today, in a place very much like yours, a founder a lot like you is stressing out. Her business isn’t performing like it ought to. Even though it has amazing offers that deliver incredible value for every customer. Sales are tough. Painstaking, even. Potential customers and supporters just aren’t getting it. Her marketing and advertising are not producing leads as she’d like. And they’re not the right kinds of leads! It seems like nothing works.
A block away, there is a great brand that really understands the different levels of problems that its best customers have. The brand has aligned with its customers and supporters, empathising and connecting with them meaningfully. It demonstrates it cares and delivers an exceptional customer experience at every encounter.
This brand authentically engages its customers and supporters in the impact they are creating together. Customers sense this understanding, involvement, and love from the brand. And they reciprocate this love. Every piece of the brand’s marketing and collateral tells this story loud and clear. It is a beautiful thing. And new customers and supporters flock to the brand.
Does this version of the scenario sound familiar? Possibly not. And you are not alone. Nine out of ten founders we speak with share this problem.
The difference between these two stories is a deep, deliberate, and awesomely crafted brand story. While you are passionate, committed, and good at what you do, brand storytelling just doesn’t come naturally.
The Sponge’s purpose is to help good businesses become better brands. Our clients span from established profit-for-purpose companies with healthy marketing budgets, to social enterprises, not-for-profits, and impact startups who are strapped for cash.
In the past, our Double the Goodness Grant has enabled us to help those impact businesses strapped for cash. That has been our impact model, fueled by our profits. Naturally, our grant has its limitations.
Enter a new addition to our impact model
A new philosophy has recently opened our minds and helped us expand our impact model. It’s a win-win. Our purpose is fulfilled even greater by helping more good businesses become better brands and we gain truckloads of karma goodness in return!
We have committed to something fresh and new. And it rapidly expands our impact. We’re now intending to help you and 5007 other changemakers unshackle your impact potential, by mastering your brand storytelling.
Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make, but about the stories you tell.
To create massive positive impact, and healthy revenue streams to support you, your story must resonate so profoundly for your people. It must reach into their chests and take a hold of their hearts, with both hands! By your people we mean your team, customers, and supporters. And this kind of story transforms them into raving fans.
The good news is there is a formula to craft such a world changing brand story. It’s one we have painstakingly developed over the 20 years we’ve been doing this work. And we have bottled it and turned it into an online program so anyone, anywhere can unlock their brand’s true impact potential. Time and again this formula revolutionises our clients’ brand and marketing, and it will for you too.
Here’s what we want to give you
Are you salivating for some juicy, impact boosting brand story for your brand yet?
Our Impact Brand Story program is a 10 module, self-paced, online program. It is a mix of videos and worksheets that you can access at any time.

What exactly is a Impact Karma Seed?
After reading The Diamond Cutter and Karmic Management, our team have aligned with the buddhist wisdom contained within them – of giving without condition to gain all you ever want. For something good to happen, a karma seed must be planted for that goodness to sprout from.
By giving our program away for free, we help 5008 enterprises create massive world changing impact, so we will experience this same success and resulting financial reward. Put simply, helping your success means helping our success. We encourage you to read these books and adopt the principles too.
This wisdom aligns with our own beliefs in using our God given abilities to serve humanity. And so it expands our impact model. After all, we are here to help good people change the world through their brands. People like you.
