Who We Partner With

In today’s commoditized market, brands are facing significant challenges to acquire and retain customers.

Differentiating the relationships that customers have with brands within an industry requires a deep understanding of how that industry works… the kind of knowledge that only comes from deep experience successfully delivering industry-specific solutions.

Brand position within an industry is critical for a product-based go-to-market strategy, as is the pressure to establish meaningful relationships with multiple groups of stakeholders.

Brands must act with a greater commitment to create higher quality engagements and more meaningful experiences.

This journey starts with a partner that understands how to differentiate and earn market share within an industry where the competition for customers is the most intense it’s ever been.

Insurance and Financial Services

Disruption in the insurance and financial services industries will continue and will only accelerate as technology, Blockchain, and cryptocurrencies continue to influence how business models meet customer expectations.

As a result, customers are challenging traditional value propositions and what constituted loyalty and advocacy in the past are now being driven by different factors.

Brand integration across all touchpoints and channels is the catalyst for extension into new markets and penetration into existing ones and the ability to segment and personalize content across multiple stakeholders is the key to sustained engagement.

We know because we’ve been there… Our team includes global, national, and specialized experience with brokers, carriers, credit unions, and major financial institutions.

Healthcare & Not-for-Profit

Managing the expectations for Foundations and Not-for-Profits in today’s challenging fundraising, donations and philanthropic environments is more difficult than it’s ever been.

The competition for donor dollars is intense, the pool of major gift donors is dying, and new donor pipelines are drying up and aren’t being replenished.

Recurring donors are harder to come by and even harder to sustain and the donor experience and establishing relevance is the key to sustained giving and philanthropy.

Our team has worked with many brands in this space to integrate efforts between the Foundation and Institution sides of the brand, have developed donor acquisition strategies to acquire new market share, and have created brand platforms that effectively deliver the right message to the right stakeholder in the right channel to deliver results.

Education

Bridging the student and alumni experience – beginning with awareness, recruitment and enrolment, through the undergraduate years and ideally into post-graduate and a sustainable alumni relationship – is often fragmented and disjointed.

Today’s challenging fundraising, donation and philanthropic environments are more difficult to manage than ever before. The competition between academic institutions is intense, and the need for the Foundation side of the brand to drive an integrated brand value proposition on behalf of the institution and education sector that speaks to more than just enrolment and student life is critical.

The competition for donor dollars has extended to include a broad range of worthwhile causes, and the pool of alumni and major donors are stretched too thin making it more difficult for them to give more, and more frequently.

Our team has worked with many established brands in this space to integrate efforts between the Foundation and Institution sides of academic brands, and have developed brand strategies and creative executions designed to increase enrolment, sustain a student experience that incorporates faculty and community stakeholders, and establish a framework for ongoing commitment and support from alumni and major gift donors.

Consumer / Brand

The demand for brands to do more than merely communicate with customers – but to connect, engage, motivate, inspire and influence – is higher than it’s ever been.

Product placement and having the ability to influence the purchase decision is the result of a proactive, holistic and integrated marketing strategy.

Internal marketing teams are under more pressure to deliver results measured in revenue and retention vs. leads and impressions and experienced partners provide an opportunity for cost-effective deployment and implementation.

Brand integration across all touchpoints and channels is the catalyst for an effective go-to-market strategy.

Our team consists of experienced global brand managers that have had P&L responsibilities and understand the pressures for a brand to deliver and perform in spite of conflicting market conditions.

Real Estate and Development

Consumer lifestyles are creating a whole new set of challenges for brands that are developing, building and selling the infrastructure that stands up our communities. The people, families, and businesses that are the lifeblood of today’s society have more choices than ever before.

Brands must not only deliver quality, but also an experience that creates an enduring relationship with buyers and tenants that creates lifetime value and multiple selling opportunities.

The speed of development and the increased demand for integrated technology has changed expectations for a product that meets the needs of an evolved and demanding consumer.

Our team has worked with the development, management, and selling arms of the real estate industry in both the residential and commercial segments and we understand the dynamics that bridge availability and demand to create opportunities to deliver an experience that creates customers that last a lifetime.

Manufacturing

‘Business as usual’ isn’t enough in today’s economy – the demands to manage a business through market conditions that are in a constant state of flux isn’t just challenging, at times it’s near impossible…

Developing – and sustaining – a strategy that creates the ability for distribution channels to mature, for pricing models to evolve, and for product innovation to drive market share is the hardest it’s ever been.

Virtually every segment is undergoing some kind of disruption, and the entrance of new competitors is putting extra stress on organizational structures and their ability to manage capacity and production to keep up with demand.

Our team has significant experience managing market dynamics and creating the opportunity for integrated marketing to differentiate, increase lead flow, and facilitate higher conversion levels at all stages of the pipeline.
