Are you technology brand looking for your last agency?
Strategy: How We Help Tech Brands Strategize Growth
Whether your technology is consumer-facing or designed for a b-to-b audience, it’s imperative to hone in on the right target audience and make sure the brand is positioned to resonate with those groups. Who is the decision maker when it comes to investing in your technology? (If you don’t know, we can help!) We’ll dig into the data to identify patterns and insights into your target customer, and then build a strategy on how to reach that customer. We can engage with your brand on strategy to the degree that you need – whether that’s building the strategy, creative and positioning of new product, developing a strategy for digital campaigns to drive conversions or helping identify stories that would be relevant to media outlets that are read by your target audience.
Owned: How We Help Tech Brands With Building Content
How do we use people to tell a story about how your services fill a gap in the marketplace? How have your brand ambassadors (whether it’s an owner, technician, service provider or customer) seen success with your services? If you’re launching a new product or service, what was the thought process behind it? We’ll dig deep into your brand to pull out your differentiators to create stories and package them for your target audience. With our 1851 and Estatenvy publications, we have created a platform that provides service brands with a digital newsroom that houses all of a brand’s news, whether it’s relevant for a potential franchisee or consumer audience. It’s not just a place to post content, though; rather it serves as a tool to educate your prospective clients, customers or franchisees about every aspect of the brand – through the perspective of the people behind the brand
Owned: How We Help Tech Brands With Creative, Social Media & Content Marketing
In order to win, social media and content marketing need to work together – along with other marketing initiatives – with consistent messaging, clear positioning and a strategy to take those messages and apply them to the applicable channels. Having a consistent voice and eye-catching imagery on social media is critical to the success of any brand, but in the tech space, it’s important to not only develop and share content, but to make sure that content is being seen by the target audience, whether that is consumers, clients, potential clients or stakeholders. We also develop strategic digital marketing campaigns to surface our stories in the places the target audience lives, from LinkedIn to Facebook to Google and more. All social media platforms operate differently, and there is no one-size-fits all strategy for how to market your content, but we are constantly working with our clients to:
- Audience: Identifying the audience is the critical first step in content marketing. We have to define our targets before we can build content that speaks to them.
- Distribution: With the knowledge of who our audience is, and the content we want to share with them, we then identify the appropriate channels to deliver our message.
- Campaign: With the audience, message and channels identified, we develop strategic campaigns that make the best use of your budget.
- Technology: We leverage technology through our publications, 1851 Franchise and Estatenvy, offer a credible third-party platform to house your content.
We know the above isn’t necessarily rocket science, but so few brands (and even fewer agencies) are doing content marketing this way. The cornerstones of our business are strategy, process, results and data – none of which can operate on their own. We use this framework to power our approach to creating impactful campaigns that drive engagement and conversion.
We work with consumer survey, shopping and rewards app Qmee, on creative strategy, creative design, social media content and paid strategy and execution. We build timely, relevant content, including the creation of Qmee’s mascot, Oinq, designed to get the user to engage – whether that’s downloading the app, sharing their earnings or engaging in the Qmee online community.
Earned: How We Help Tech Brands
With Technology PR
For our tech clients, we develop a strategic public relations plan to secure coverage in the publications that are read by and are important to the relevant industries. We dive deep into the founding story to uncover the “why this brand” and “why now,” as well as find rich human interest stories within the brand. We position company executives as thought leaders on the technology landscape, offering commentary on industry trends and jumping on relevant news stories to provide expert insight. To provide validation, we work with our clients to develop case studies that showcase how a client utilized their technology solutions to the benefit of the business. Every brand is different – and we tailor our PR approach to each brand to ensure that we are positioning the brand properly to resonate with both media and prospective customers.
We developed a strategic PR campaign for Kallpod, an electronic device used by restaurants and hotels to drive incremental revenue and improve operations, about its partnership with a Chick-fil-a franchisee. Our focus was on national media and trade publications to build awareness from potential investors and prospective clients. Our coverage directly led to new partnerships with many multi-unit restaurant brands. A few of our wins:

We work with Toronto-based Givex, a global end-to-end operations management solution, to drive awareness of its ticketing, gift card and POS products in the United States.
