About Us

Thoughtful. Focused. Strategic.

What we do

We work with community banks that believe marketing can be a strategic advantage.

By focusing on a single category we are able to stay on the forefront of that industry. Whether it is product development, pricing or distribution, our focus is on how it impacts you and your customers.

By working with a select number of banks, we can provide the attention and support you need to accomplish your goals.

Not-for-profits

While it is not the focus of what we do, we also work with community not-for-profit organizations. Whether its helping to employ the disabled or promote substance abuse prevention, like community banks, local not-for-profits play a vital role in supporting their communities. And we try to do what we can to help.

Why we do it

Community banks are the keystones of America. You are the fuel that drives our local economies and collectively our national economy. You help first-time homebuyers purchase a new home, parents save for their children’s educations and small businesses open and expand. You support local charities and other not-for-profits that make a real difference and strengthen the fabric of our communities.

As experienced bank marketing professionals our goal is to differentiate you in ways that are meaningful to your communities and then help you execute strategically grounded marketing initiatives that deepen relationships. Ultimately, we help you to become market leaders and have an even more positive impact on the communities you serve.

Scope of services

When we talk about “marketing” we mean leveraging all four Ps (product, price, place and promotion) and understanding the interplay of the three Cs (company, competition and customers). We believe that a marketing strategy that leverages all available tools brings the best results.
