STRATEGIC THINKING AND BRANDING

Dental to retail to ski resorts they are all unique. Successful marketing demands equal measures of technical knowledge, creative vision and digital expertise. From topline data strategies and acquisition planning, lead prospecting and nurturing, acquisition and retention strategies to the basic tenets of marketing including direct marketing and event planning, media buying and planning, we can deliver valuable insights into the mind of the consumer. As a result, we can create opportunities that drive value for your brand in the form of meaningful, measurable results.

MARKET RESEARCH

At Blakeslee, we think of market research as the intellectual roadmap that underpins strategic thinking. The consumer insight generated by market research gives brands a launching point for the development of tactical and strategic planning and execution. It offers the brand both the systematic and objective collection and interpretation of information to help reduce risk and inform marketing decisions.

Market research offers companies an intimate understanding of their customer’s wants and needs, hopes and fears and overall mindset. Understanding this information allows companies to make decisions proactively rather than reactively. Whether it’s conceptualizing or introducing a new product, getting the lay of the land on your own brand or competitors, testing out a new category, or better understanding the end user, we can help reveal and record the collective mind of the marketplace.

Using a variety of methodologies and creative exercises, we help companies uncover the information and opinions that cannot be predicted. Our team works regularly with companies of all sizes—from Fortune 500 companies to upstart companies still in the development phase—in designing custom customer insight studies that deliver compelling results and real value.

BRAND DEVELOPMENT

We believe there is untapped potential to be found in every product. Understanding how to unlock that potential is understanding the difference between a product and a brand. Once a product captures the imagination, it will command attention. It’s about provocative ideas delivered with amplified impact. Because good brands stand out, but great brands stand alone.

AWARENESS

We like to think of the business like a Venn diagram. In the one circle are the features and benefits of your product. In the other are the wants and needs of your potential customer. What we do at Blakeslee is bring the two circles together to pique curiosity, promote trial and drive engagement. No matter what corner of the world your circle sits in, let us help you find the overlap between the two and discover the Zen of the Venn.

PRINT

The face of marketing has evolved tremendously over the last ten years. Print materials share the playing field with digital media, yet they can be relevant and effective as a part of your company’s overall marketing strategy. 

There are over 220 million people in the United States who are still avid readers of magazines. That’s a huge number for a medium thought dead. And according to statista, despite the fierce competition from digital alternatives, the total number of magazine readers in the US has seen a slight increase in the last decade. Furthermore, the number of magazines in the US has grown steadily each year.  Print ads, brochures and flyers can be quite intrusive and tangible. If the content is engaging and the print quality is high, people tend to hang on to print materials. And, while they’re engaging with the content, they get intercepted by a creative, compelling print ad that stops them. That’s the magic of print.

Print materials have a lasting impression and exist in a less crowded space.  The average person is exposed to between 4,000 – 10,000 ads each day. Most people don’t click on online ads, making digital outreach insufficient for carrying the entire weight of many media plans. That’s where print media can have a more lasting effect, especially among older Americans who command a high percentage of the country’s spending power, and those who appreciate the tactile feel of paper in their hands. 

CONTENT CREATION

Marketing is evolving and the way that people receive information is changing. To succeed, brands must have a rich mix of content ready and waiting for your audience when they’re ready to engage. Our content team can help brands identify and act on the most valuable and innovative opportunities to create true engagement to remain at the forefront of the digital conversation. Let us help you navigate the complex and social media environment in order to create deep, meaningful connections with your customers.
