Understanding the Environment
Customer is in control more than ever before.
We believe the marketplace has shifted and the consumers know it. Yesterday was about supply-side, mass appeal, "What can I sell you?" Today, brand success comes from understanding the customer's unique demands and establishing relevancy and value.
Lots of static out there.
We believe brands have more outlets and options than ever before to get their voice out there. Consequently, there's lots of shouting in the marketplace, and everywhere else the consumer goes. Brands can feel like they have to be everywhere, and consumers can feel bombarded with stimulus.
New dynamics in connectivity are changing everything.
We believe immediate access to people, information and action is empowering the customer like never before. More and more, consumption is becoming a function of connected discovery and user experience.
Creating Genuine Connection
Approach the customer opportunity at the atomic level.
We believe in approaching every opportunity thinking of the individual first. And if there's the possibility to reach individuals in mass, great; but a mass solution is not our pre-conceived starting point.
Experiences trump media impressions.
We believe connection through the shallow, repetitive media impression is a dated, supply-side approach and only contributes to the marketplace clutter. A genuine, deeper connection is forged through experiences rooted in interaction the customer values and enjoys.
Brands must deliver as promised.
We believe brands must follow through on their promises, both direct and implied. That means getting the experience right, and in turn delivering to customers what's expected and then some.
Delivering Competitive Advantage
Challenging conventional business paradigms.
We believe this marketplace, driven by demand-side needs, may require new ways of doing business. While customer empowerment isn't a traditional thought for the supply-side, there's tremendous upside business potential if brands get it right.
Knowing vs. hoping.
We believe that sound business principles still apply even on the new frontier of today's marketplace. It means defining expectations upfront and then monitoring what's in play and optimizing for success.
The old agency labels no longer apply.
We believe in giving clients a better way of offering experiences to consumers. Traditional and digital agency labels aren't relevant, and the debate becomes a thing of the inefficient past.
