A legendary marketing exec once said, “The tighter the strategy, the better the creative.” It’s an old axiom. But man, does it hold true. Strategy is everything.
Still, a lot of marketing agencies don’t adhere to that principle. How many times have you seen a brand appear one way in advertising, and another in practice? Seen an ad and not known what a company is selling? Watched a news interview and cringed at a spokesperson’s comments?
So before we put pen to paper, a solid strategy must be in place in order to achieve your business goals. It’s called The KnowWHO™ Process, and it starts with your brand. Not your consumers. Not your competition.
We Turn the Telescope™ around and search inward to discover what fuels your organization’s engine. Why you get up in the morning and do what you do. Because in the end, it’s not what you sell that sets you apart from your competitors – it’s why you sell it. That Claim of Distinction is the cornerstone that our strategy will be founded on.
After working together on your brand assessment, we design a detailed roadmap to a stronger, more profitable brand. Then, we add to our arsenal of information with Market Research – where we get into the trenches, talk to people, and find out what makes them tick – and what ticks them off. Whether on the telephone or web, through focus groups or one-on-one conversations, we’ll find the best way to assess your brand through your customers’ eyes.
No strategy is complete without perfect execution. Using a unique combination of media custom-tailored to your brand, we’ll back up your Claim of Distinction with Evidence of Performance. That’s when the true transformation happens, and that’s why we we wake up in the morning and do what we do.
Solid strategy = solid marketing = solid results. Case closed.
