Every client has unique catch points and requires a solution uniquely suited to leverage them. We uncover our clients' business-driving opportunities and create clarity around how to meet their marketing challenges.
Our approach combines rigorous strategy with inspirational creative, followed by precise execution and ongoing refinement. Our goal is not to get it right once, but to establish a system that regularly hits the catch point, propelling your business forward again and again.
"Initiating the drive" is how we refer to our discovery process. Analyzing the current situation forms the basis for the strategic approach. We align our goals, so we can move quickly and decisively towards action. Initiation may include a comprehensive communications audit, internal and/or external interviews, competitive analyses, and/or research review.
Insights gained from "Initiation" are formulated into a strategic action plan that supports the goals, timing, and resource prioritization of our client. Depending on the situation, we either create a foundation or build upon an existing one. Typical elements contained in this phase include:
- Positioning, messaging, brand architecture
- Concept development
- Strategic and tactical marketing planning
Flawless execution against a well-conceived plan is required to yield results. With the core elements in place, we execute the plan to maximize impact and drive ROI. The range of activities varies greatly by client, but may include:
- Creative development leading to launch
- Tactical launch
- Guidelines & Standards
- Launches & Implementation Planning
- Internal Communications
To generate enduring momentum, we work with clients to create a system to measure, evaluate, and adapt the plan over time. By applying this discipline, we can continually align investment with impact. Both qualitative and quantitative measures can be effective.
