Get more with less
Usually companies are trying to fix everything by themselves. Hiring maketing personnel may seem wiser for control and conectivity reasons. But then marketing staff requests contracting an advertising agency and at the end of the day you have to pay a lot of things: salaries, corespondent taxes to the state, annual leave, etc, but also agency hours, including creative hours, client service, dtp and so on, the bigger the agency the higher the bill.
Outsourcing marketing you pay by project and only for the essence of the work needed to bring you results.
We are a small focused team, collaborating with freelancers or other service providers upon request, thus we keep our operational costs at minimum level.

Not so long ago, even seems like ages, the advertising was classic and
clear: TV, radio, print, some drop mail, coupons and very timid word of mouth. But! The Internet came and gave the consumer a voice. The word of mouth got unbound amplifiers. Social platforms encourage people to express themselves, not only through own creativity, but also by raising opinions about products and services. Suddenly companies and products became more exposed, hence more responsible and more thoughtful to community.
Thus, brands are developing social interaction. It’s no longer just one-way communication, it’s a dialog. What tone do you set for that dialog? What kind of a person is your brand in chatting with its customers? Is it funny, serious, caring, friendly, imposing or flexible?
Do you speak your target social language? How many of them you convert into followers? Sow many unique individuals you have to convince by speaking to all at once.
Do you have the content for the many platforms that you need to get followers from? Video, images, texts, catchy expressions, the right call-to-action, so much more compared with the old slogan and tagline.
Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, and so on, a lot of particularities to handle.
Let us help you manage all the above.
More power to consumers! Let’s train that power!
