We help brands earn the right to be called a favorite brand by focusing on five types of behaviors:
A favorite brand is present, participative and responsive, utilizing each relevant channel to engage consumers with the brand and its purpose.
A favorite brand becomes invaluable by being purposeful, helpful and easily usable.
A favorite brand is a good citizen and transparent in its marketing; its behaviors are consistent with its values.
A favorite brand acts continuously to be of service to its customers and its cause.
A favorite brand delights and encourages exploration via storytelling and surprise; it delivers a positive return on attention.
THE ROAD TO RESULTS
To chart a course towards desired strategic outcomes, we implement the three-stage process pictured below. Each stage includes a variety of milestones within.
INSIGHTS:IDENTIFYING HIGHEST VALUE CHALLENGE
Every one of our strategic engagements starts with a review of known challenges and an assessment of which outcomes will define success. The goal of this phase is to create alignment between stakeholders and clarify the central problem to be solved.
We field primary quantitative and qualitative research to supplement gaps in knowledge and give us a clear view of our audience’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. This holistic understanding of what our consumers say and how they act shapes the core insight that will fuel breakthrough creative work.
Brand Immersion & Ecosystem Measurement
We use stakeholder interviews and immersive business planning to gain an in-depth view of the brand from the inside out, emerging with a firm grasp of the company’s unique value-creating characteristics. From, this we develop a data-informed, diagnostic ecosystem model to help measure the brand’s current and potential in-market performance across all channels.
We thoroughly review the competitive landscape to indicate where market opportunities exist within the brand’s given business sector.
