Virtual Brand Advisors is dedicated to guiding the big brands of tomorrow.

Throughout the process, she kept us on target by setting deadlines and was exceptionally punctual with the completion of each phase of our project. In the end, Julie presented us with a beautiful marketing plan and took the time to go over each part in great detail. This gave us easy access to the words we use to accurately describe our products and the services we provide to a variety of customers.” – Nancy M., President, Simple Solutions, Bright Ideas Press, LLC


“As owner of Weed Pro Lawn Care, I’ve had the distinct pleasure to work with Julie Krebs of Virtual Brand Advisors. This past fall, we decided that a change was needed for our organization, and a re-branding of our logo and mission was in order. Julie and her team worked tirelessly throughout the project to help facilitate a change in not only our brand, but also helped create proof points to facilitate a change in attitude and culture within the company. After working with Julie and her team for several months, we were very satisfied with the end results of our new corporate logo, and branding proof points. Julie and her team at Virtual Brand Advisors take a proactive and intimate approach to creating a new brand for a corporation. It’s through their studious research that they are able to create a brand around proof points that resonate not only with the corporation, but with their consumers as well.” – Robert P., Owner, Weed Pro Lawn Care, a Weatherhead 100 award winner
