Marketing agencies of all stripes implore their clients to promote, promote, promote. But few of them actually follow through on their own advice. Well, we think that’s just a little bit hypocritical. So we try to market ourselves in the most appropriate way for a consulting firm such as ours. In the past, we have sponsored drivetime on OPB radio, participated in trade shows, used digital display advertising, hosted open house events, gave speaking engagements, told stories in the press, and we’ve even decorated the front of our building (which may have given us the best results so far). For 2017 we are initiating a direct mail campaign. Why? Because it cuts through the clutter. It turns out people like getting something in the mail—as long as it is an entertaining and thought-provoking piece. What we created was a mailer that challenges our prospects to be “Unignorable.” The piece itself is unignorable because it highlights a few of our greatest successes and we personalized the mailer each time. We expect great results.
