Templates aren’t part of our vocabulary. Cookie cutters aren’t part of our toolbox. And we won’t try to sell you on a magic formula—because there isn’t one.
What we will do is help you exponentially grow your business using an innovative, hands on, collaborative approach.
Here are some of the proven principles that guide everything we do:
"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." --Benjamin Franklin2014-04-21T21:33:55+00:00“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” –Benjamin Franklin"Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration". --Thomas A. Edison2014-04-21T21:34:20+00:00“Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration”. –Thomas A. Edison"Innovation is an evolutionary process, so it's not necessary to be radical all the time". --Marc Jacobs2014-04-21T21:34:41+00:00“Innovation is an evolutionary process, so it’s not necessary to be radical all the time”. –Marc Jacobs
Breakthroughs come in both big and small packages. Many people only look for revolutionary ideas, dismissing the evolutionary ones as small or incremental. We believe success comes from pursuing both. Leveraging your best ideas can help you break frames and pave the road for game changing ideas. We deliver results fast by working both sides of this coin at the same time.
A successful marketing program is stronger than the sum of its parts. Your whole business grows faster, stronger and more successful when you have multiple facets of the the business firing at the same time. We believe powerful results come from looking across a marketing program—from email to web site to direct mail to make connections and leverage ideas and successes from one program to the next.
Numbers tell a story. When you listen, they can help you eliminate guesswork, pounce on opportunities and follow new paths. But data overload can hurt, preventing you from taking action. We help our clients focus on the data that truly matters while avoiding “analysis paralysis” that can hold you back. We use a very deliberate approach: Test, Measure, Apply, Leverage. We construct measurable tests, analyze those results, quickly apply the lessons learned, then look for ways to leverage them throughout your business. Over and over and over again. Our data-driven approach means you’ll never again be left wondering how your marketing is performing or whether you are getting a return on investment.
We believe that great marketing is equal parts art and science. Blockbuster mail plans can not be produced by algorithms alone. Successful email campaigns can’t be designed using an out-of-the-box formula. Breakthrough direct response marketing programs aren’t built on numbers and spreadsheets alone. Proven direct response marketing techniques and disciplined analysis are crucial, but it is only when you pair them with experience, intuition, curiosity, imagination and inspiration that they become unstoppable. This is not black and white…and amazing things can happen when you explore the grey space in between.
