Blissborn: You're Built for a Better Birth

The story:

You're built for a better birth, and Blissborn will show you how to create it.  Every day, women are giving birth peacefully, calmly, and confidently.  You can, too.  

The business/brand:

Blissborn is a complete childbirth program that prepares couples for a peaceful birth.  Using hypnosis techniques, women tap into their existing power to allow their bodies to do what they were made for.  Blissborn not only helps create blissful births but also calmer, more peaceful babies.

Current main text on website:

Blissborn is the natural birth program that is changing birth.

We invite you to take a closer look. You'll find here a different way to think about birth, your body and mind, and what you can do. Blissborn is all about you. Your power. Your own natural abilities. You are built for a better birth, and we want to show you how to create it.

If you want to have a calm, natural birth experience and you know with the right support you’re capable … but you’re nervous … we can help!

Elevator speech in the works:

“When I told my husband heard I was going to use hypnosis to birth my child, he was very skeptical.  Afterward, though, he told me, ‘I will never doubt you again.’  I was able to have a peaceful  birth and allow my body to do what it was meant to do using Blissborn.  It takes the fear away.”

11 Questions:

Telling a story to people who want to hear it and doing it so honestly and vividly that they want to tell others.

Everything!  I've been given a wide opening to comment, make suggestions, and change anything and everything needed to market Blissborn.

Blissborn’s Ps (7)

Positioning – We must find an unserved quadrant where we can win!  (Price? Method of availability?  Modernity?) – fill a ‘niche’ in a brain’s filing cabinet of someone who cares

Pricing – Answer the question “why are we more expensive?”  Perceived (not actual) value – we pay based on what it’s worth to us based on our own story

Placement – Who do we want to be ‘next’ to, and how do we get there?

Promotion – What can we give away, and to whom?

Public Relations – What’s the story we’re telling, how do we tell it, and to whom?

Placebo – Customers must believe it’s going to work (lots of testimonials, network folks can talk to?)

Place – What’s it like to be “with” Blissborn?  What emotions does it evoke?  (Safety, comfort, want to return)

People Like us – Customers must believe that people like them choose Blissborn
