    OUR POV
    More brands are investing in experiential marketing than ever before. In fact, a recent Freeman Global Brand Experience Study found that one in three CMOs said experiential marketing would account for at least 20% of their marketing budgets in three to five years.
    What do these CMOs know? They know that experiential marketing works. According to Adweek:
    87% of people say a live event is more effective than television ads.
    98% of people are more likely to purchase a product after a live experience.
    29% of companies who run experiential campaigns report 10-1 returns on investment.
    While experiential marketing includes everything from street teams to pop-up events to mobile tours to to trade shows to music festivals (and beyond), it means more than just events. It requires seamless brand strategy, architecture, publicity, design, content development, technology, artistry and production all working together. This approach ensures the experience we create will be only the starting point for a long-lasting connection between the consumer and your brand.

    APPROACH
    EXPERIENTIAL
    To make lasting impressions through innovative experiences, a brand must first know how to create an emotional connection with its consumers -- a connection that inspires and delights. It’s a tall order, but it’s one we’ve accomplished time and again.

    Our approach is rooted in empathy and a thorough understanding of your ideal customer. Using our proprietary consumer shopping behavior data and data management platform, we build audience profiles that capture the needs and desires of your target -- along with how your brand satisfies those cravings.

    This knowledge inspires us to create memorable experiences that resonate, build connections, and push boundaries. These experiences are built to scale, no matter where you want to deploy. This approach is a balance of heart and science, innovation and results, loyal fans and growth.

    We believe great experience design doesn’t stop with the event itself. We engage our Strategy and Media teams to extend our live experiences to your broader marketing ecosystem via the right marketing channels, partnerships, and other assets relevant to your audience -- showing up at the right time and place to draw them to you. Then we figure out how to do that again, bigger and better than before.

    The end result is an experience that leaves a lasting impression on your customer, helping you stay top of mind and relevant in a highly fragmented world. And this approach has earned us recognition as part of the #1 U.S. Experiential/Event Marketing Agency Network, as named by Advertising Age in their 2017 report.

    AMAZON
    BUILDING BRAND LOVE WITH B-I-B-L-I-O-P-H-I-L-I-A
    When it comes to e-readers, Amazon is the recognized market leader with its outstanding line of Kindle products. And the company aims to stay on top by continually fostering a love of reading – and cultivating future generations of bibliophiliacs.

    We suggested Kindle become the Bee’s presenting sponsor. The result: two beloved brands working together with the belief that reading is critically important to a child’s lifelong achievement.

    Beyond fostering a relationship between Kindle and the Bee, we brought our sponsorship to life by creating the Kindle Corner—an experience for the top 285 National Spelling Bee contestants and their families during the high-stakes finals week.

    Amenities within the Corner included wall of Kindles for inspection and a foam letter pit that appealed to every child.

    The Corner also served as a hub for Amazon’s social media reporting from the Bee, with live storytime readings and contests providing ready content.

    During the week, we also ran a series of inspirational pre-recorded “Reading Heroes” videos, celebrating readers who share their love of reading with others. For example, one video told the story of a woman who helps young readers learn by having them read aloud to shelter dogs.

    SOUTHWEST
    TO SHOW REAL HEART, YOU GOTTA HEAR IT BEAT
    As the one airline that puts people first, Southwest has always believed in showing its heart. In 2014, the company took that belief and made it literal truth, through a brand redesign that placed new emphasis on the company’s Heart logo. Southwest asked us to help bring that new look to life.

    Here’s how we turned Southwest’s emphasis on Heart and Hospitality into an experience that could reach people directly.

    We started with Southwest’s existing experiential program and completely redesigned it according to the new brand guidelines. Key to this process was renaming it the Southwest Porch – a change that put the brand’s emphasis on Hospitality front and center.

    While the new design elevated the Southwest brand, it also created an engaging oasis away from the heat and crowds at festivals and consumer events around the country. With live performances from Southwest’s “Artists on the Rise” program and other musicians, we helped Southwest connect in a big way with its target audience.

    New programing and games further underscored Southwest’s brand messaging. The activation included free Sno-Cones, Wi-Fi, phone charging stations, “Bags Fly Free” cornhole games, and a photo booth where consumers could create and print customized postcards in a matter of seconds. The flexibility in our design allowed us to tailor the Porch experience to each event, creating authentic, customizable, meaningful experiences.

    OUR POV
    The ability to reach consumers at every stage of their journeys has helped social media marketing become the most powerful factor in their purchasing decisions. Social has accelerated the speed of culture, and your brand’s ability to keep pace in this environment is central to its long-term success. That’s why we use data and insights to drive the quality of the content we create and the efficacy of the messages we craft. With this as our basis, we are able to forge memorable emotional connections that amplify results across earned, owned and paid channels.

    OUR APPROACH
    A DATA-DRIVEN ECOSYSTEM
    Friends, relatives, news publications, celebrities, and brands all compete simultaneously for the social consumer’s attention. In order to rise above the fray, we must determine what value your brand can provide to its audience; what will make them pause, take notice, and react to the content we place in front of them? Answering that question begins with a deep-dive look at how consumers are congregating, communicating, and consuming information in digital, and then using that data to inform activity across your ecosystem:

    Owned
    What differentiates your brand from its competitors and provides benefit to consumers? How are we communicating the brand’s purpose within each social channel?

    INSIGHTS & DISCOVERY: EXAMINING BRAND CULTURE
    What are consumers saying? What resonates with them? Who do they admire in this space? Our process begins with an investigation into your brand’s historical conversation trends and an analysis of content performance to date. Armed with this data, we are able to form category insights and an understanding of your brand’s consumer culture. We examine these findings in relation to influential voices in the surrounding culture, along with studying search intent and consumer behavior.

    expertise_social_process_01
    Based on all of these findings, we generate an assignment brief that outlines the purpose, direction, and business challenges to be solved. This brief will drive the development of social media marketing strategy, channel specific plans, and paid media support.

    expertise_social_process_02-1
    OUR PROCESS
    STRATEGIC PLANNING: DEVELOPING THE BIG IDEA
    The insights and discovery guide us as we craft The Big Idea – a single unifying theme that will be the foundation for all programs and campaigns across owned, earned and paid channels. This primary theme allows us to develop your brand’s character and tone of voice, while outlining how to best activate it on each social platform. We will also map out your brand’s media amplification plan, determining whose influence it will seek to leverage, which consumers can be enlisted as advocates, and which audiences are ripe for targeting through paid media.

    OUR PROCESS
    CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT: BRINGING THE CAMPAIGN TO LIFE
    With The Big Idea firmly established, we now look to stretch across all possible touch points to maximize its impact. Campaign plans and strategy will provide an overview for editorial communications, and a defined content production schedule for generating compelling communications on a day-to-day basis will be outlined, along with launch timing and dependencies.

    ONGOING IMPLEMENTATION: ACTIVATION AND BEYOND
    Next, we begin implementing the agenda laid out in our plan –producing and reviewing content, shooting video, reaching out to influencers, establishing community management, and pursuing paid social amplification. Our creative team begins to develop content for specific audiences, based upon specific behaviors and trends, for specific social platforms.

    As our pipeline fills, we begin to build and train a social organization and launch content distribution. The result is a holistic social presence that maximizes your brand’s relationship with its consumers and fans.

    OUR POV
    With the pressure to continually prove ROI on marketing spend, marketers are tasked with wading through immense amounts of data to understand what worked in the past and how to optimize for the future. It is no longer enough to just answer what happened. Our role is to uncover the "whys" so we can confidently and predictably improve our clients’ future performance.
    This kind of intelligence is made possible when combining cutting edge marketing and data sciences with traditional performance analytics. Our analytics team is comprised of storytellers, detectives, and activists, tasked with surfacing the most relevant and important stories told by the numbers, creating actionable insights that give brands the competitive edge.

    ANALYTICS
    We employ a four-stage approach to analyzing metrics, delivering a holistic view of marketing performance across all channels. By focusing on a combination of actionable insights and data visualizations we can ensure consistent interpretation and clearly identify next steps to enhance marketing performance. This enables the prioritization of accurate channel attribution to ensure dollars are being invested strategically and efficiently.

    Insights
    Every effort begins with an assessment of the challenge to ensure that the agency and key stakeholders are aligned with regards to objectives and definitions of program success. Our team audits the technical infrastructure and available data to establish a foundation for the design phase.

    Every effort has a customized solution that aligns with our clients’ business objectives. Based on what we learn in the Discovery phase, our team will leverage our deep bench of talent to develop an analytics roadmap that begins with data collection and aggregation to the development of actionable insights.

    The roadmap often includes multiple analytics approaches from across all four of our service categories (performance analytics, marketing sciences, research, and business intelligence).

    The rubber hits the road after finalizing the solution design. We aggregate data from multiple sources to create an integrated dataset for analysis. Our team of data analysts, statisticians, and social scientists work together to rigorously apply the appropriate analytics methodologies and generate value from seemingly disparate data points, even with imperfect data.

    We don’t toss data over the wall to our clients. That’s not value. Value is defined as actionable insights that align with business objectives to move our clients’ business. We define success as delivering recommended actions to optimize campaigns and outputs that can be interpreted by any marketer.

    OUR WORK
    HASBRO
    Hasbro, one of the largest toy manufacturers in the world, utilizes a robust media mix to market products across dozens of brands. While spend across digital channels (brand sites, media, content development) was on the rise, our client wanted a better understanding of a toy shopper’s journey from initial research to conversion, specifically:

    Better understand a toy shopper’s browsing habits and general browsing and specific toy research.
    Identify and quantify the impact of site engagements that correlate with conversion events.
    Quantify the impact digital channels have on conversion events and POS.
    In response to Hasbro’s request AMP analyzed the business questions and recommend the following solutions to address the goals Hasbro has defined.

    Path-to-Purchase Analysis: Analysis of third party data which tracks visitor activity across digital touchpoints on the web.
    High Value Behavior Analysis: Statistical modeling of website data captured via Adobe Analytics, to qualify and quantify the relationship of specific content on Hasbro websites to desired actions.
    Channel Attribution Analysis: Econometric models were developed to bridge the gap between investment and conversion events on e-tail partner sites and in-store.
    OUR WORK
    VIRTUE LABS
    Virtue Labs approached us to help build a new direct to consumer beauty brand. They had an amazing product, but needed assistance bringing it to market. This included package design, identification of their audience segments, development of a media strategy to build awareness and demand for their products, development of a consumer e-commerce website, and creation of a CRM strategy.

    We were engaged as their lead partner to bring the brand to market. Virtue leveraged the full breadth of our Analytics services to support the brand launch, including:

    Financial models were developed to support fundraising rounds.
    Primary research, including both surveys and focus groups, was used to flesh out audience segment profiles and package designs.
    A comprehensive digital analytics strategy was developed, including platform selection and implementation.
    Integrated reports were developed to monitor performance of the soft and hard brand launches.
    Outcome: Virtue Lab’s brand launch was supported by a strong backbone of data and insights. They understood their audience segments and how, when, and where to reach them. Efficient media strategies were developed with clear definitions of success against which to measure. All stakeholders had easy access to KPIs delivered in custom formats designed to fuel actions and socialize information across the organization.
