case in point
HOW TO Connect VIA SOCIAL MEDIA
Over the last 15 years, Bags of Fun has brought the power of play to more than 10,000 kids. But as they expand their impact to more kids facing tough illnesses throughout the U.S., they needed to extend their digital reach.
Within our first week, we increased engagement by 177%. And over the last three months, we have:
Doubled traffic to their website
Attracted more than 100 new donors
Provided insights to help them retain and engage existing donors
Beyond managing their presence on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, we also shaped their strategy, developed a content calendar, and created guidelines so that others in their organization could be advocates.
why brand management matters
An innovator had an amazing idea for a yoga product but wasn’t sure how to go about marketing it. So within 3 months, we helped:
Get customer insights from a focus group
Create the company’s name, visual identity and messaging platform
Orchestrate a photoshoot
Record and edit videos
Launch the website and social media channels
As a result, the brand experience is at the same level of quality of Aseem Yoga Block Covers.
how to handle Crisis communications
Faced with an EPA push against ethylene oxide we helped manage the situation for a healthcare company. Quickly getting to the truth and using effective communications to make sure the media, community and regulators understood that truth.
Our actions protected the company’s brand so they could focus on their business. What caused public and political outcry to shutdown Sterigenics didn’t happen to the company we advised.
how to attract buyers
A Denver real estate mainstay needed to capture the attention of a progressive company to their latest project, a mixed-use business and residential hub.
Through the Peña Station NEXT brand and materials, that company became Panasonic. It selected the site over 21 other locations to house their Enterprise Solutions, where the company produces its Eco Solutions line, including large-scale solar systems and a battery storage and testing unit. The site is now also home to Elevate condos and apartments.
