LISTEN TO WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT OUR WORK
The work we did for Breathe Right® nasal strips illustrates why our agency’s unique approach to promoting products has become so popular with so many companies. What appeared to many as grassroots publicity for Breathe Right® was actually a carefully thought out and well-executed marketing strategy. We helped turn a virtually unknown product into an iconic national cash cow brand.
Our work with Great Clips also illustrates the power of publicity. Great Clips uses local media stories to make personal connections with audiences. Great Clips has used publicity to teach customers about new tools such as online check in. It has also leveraged media stories to show how its franchisees are involved in their communities.
