Erica is the Founder & CEO of Claxon, a marketing firm that helps mission-driven clients unleash the power of words. She hosts the Marketing for Good podcast and teaches at the University of Washington, where she co-directs the Nancy Bell Evans Center on Nonprofits & Philanthropy. 

In this episode, Dean Newlund and Erica Mills Barnhart discuss:

  • Searching for and centering on signature words.
  • Brain processing speeds of images vs. words.
  • Set the company voice and tone to engage clarity, confidence, and values.
  • Marketing that arouses intuition and feeling.


Key Takeaways:

  • Engage the energetics and physics of language, helping people to feel the words being spoken.
  • The cause and effect of your words, what do you want people to feel, know, and do?
  • Focus your writing on the verbs to create your action. 
  • Take out the extraneous language and get to the point.

“Our brains don’t like cognitive dissonance; it does everything it can to make everything come to one truth.” —  Erica Mills Barnhart
