From brand creation, marketing/ad, campaigns, to lead generation we combine all forms of digital and printed media to generate business for our clients. Our work has been recognized for creative and marketing excellence over one hundred times.
From television to the Internet to magazines, there are plenty of places to market and advertise—but marketing mediums are not created equally. We choose the communication platforms that are most relevant to your audience and create communications designed especially for the audiences and venues. We think about what your prospects will be doing when they see your image and plan messages that tunes-in to their interests.
Your communications should make people stop what they’re doing and pay attention. Most consumers view advertising and marketing as interruptions and automatically ignore the messages. Your connection needs to be engaging and capture their interest. Effective communications are both interesting and informative, resonating in the prospect’s mind after he or she has moved on.
Most prospective customers base their purchases on emotional reasons. The most successful advertisements simultaneously appeal to a prospect’s emotional and rational sides. We attract the prospect’s attention with an emotional appeal creating a mindful connection, then follow with logical reasons why they need your product or service.
To increase brand awareness, we coordinate your marketing efforts ensuring that each communication clearly reflects your brand's value propositions. Prospects are more likely to recall your products/services when an integrated marketing plan is communicated across multiple platforms. Our goal, to consistently deliver your messages, elevating the awareness of what you’re selling, improving the odds that your prospects will remember your products/services when they’re ready to buy.
It’s no wonder why most people tend to ignore marketing and advertising messages. Digital Marketing experts estimate that most Americans are bombarded with 4,000 to 10,000 advertisements each day.
Prospects typically need to be exposed to your messages about three times before they will become aware of what you’re offering. Most prospects need 9-12 impressions before they decide to purchase. It’s important to communicate frequently, and in many cases, across multiple platforms.
