aloha, we're kapwa studio

social media storytelling studio

At kapwa studio, we create brand advocates through community-driven marketing, content and social media management. We work with high-touch brands who value memorable experiences for their community on and offline.

You have a vision and want your story to be told. With over ten years of shared experience as creatives in the online space, we incorporate your brand mission into thought-provoking stories that tug at your customers’ heartstrings.

Let’s build a fire from the ground up so your community can learn about the ideas, experiences, and brand mission you have to share.

the power of storytelling

Stories are 22x more effective in marketing than facts alone

Your story has the power to change the way people see + experience the world.

Storytelling captures attention, deepens relationships and creates brand advocates — people who tell their friends + family, leave positive reviews, and purchase from your brand throughout their lifetime.

At kapwa studio, we write content that grabs your customers by their heartstrings + uses enough facts to justify their decision.

Your story can be a part of your journey to create generational impact.

the power of social media

you have 8 seconds to capture your audience's attention

Your brand story deserves to be heard.

With the creator economy booming, paid advertising alone is no longer enough to reach your target audience.

Your business can positively shape the next generation, but it’s getting harder and harder to grow your community with social media algorithms changing faster than the news cycle.

You don’t have to be in the weeds of content production.

We manage your social media and create meaningful relationships with your customers so you can focus on other parts of your business.
