Why we started our own agency
After years running what are considered to be accepted standards for “great” media campaigns, we realized that a more meaningful business impact could be made for our clients through the proper operations model and use of technology. We believed we could create actual and measurable results that surpass any prior investment performance because of this unique and risky idea. To do that, we had to throw the traditional agency model out the window. For 15% or less which is what most media agencies compete on, we can’t hire the best people, give them unlimited hours and a blank canvas to be truly passionate about what they do. We figured out instead that if you give the best talent all the freedom and accountability to perform, and remove all the obstacles to delivering the best results, they actually can do better work, and they actually love doing it this way, they are more inspired, engaged and enlightened… and that directly ties to our performance ability.
We have also invested heavily into understanding the digital analytics and media ecosystem, aligning with best-in-class partners to execute and ultimately collecting and utilizing data that shows a real and true business impact and return. Our results are proven, and our methodology is clearly galvanized based on the results we have driven. We invest in your outcomes, hold ourselves and you - our partner accountable, and we both enjoy the success that follows.
