In 1980, if you wanted to open a sandwich shop, it wasn’t too hard. You rented out some readily available commercial space, brought in the right ingredients, began operations, purchased some print advertisements, and started gaining customers. Back then, marketing costs were simple, easy to manage and understand.
We are so excited to announce our new partnership with The Bounce Place, a business dedicated to creating safe, fun, and exciting indoor playgrounds for young children. The owners, Bruce and Michelle, had realized that larger trampoline parks and play areas were usually environments that prioritized the needs of larger, more active “big kid” audiences, which meant those trampoline parks were unsafe and frightening for younger ages.
You’re in for a “punny” surprise with September’s Ad of the Month. Geico started a commercial series called, “It’s Not Surprising,” this month with the Martin Agency. We found the series to be cheesy, but attention grabbing.
With the 2016 Summer Rio Olympics at a close, we decided it was only right to feature one of the many great Olympic advertisements this month. “Never Lose the Love,” is a 70-second spot from Gatorade featuring some of our favorite Olympic athletes. These elite athletes have a particular dedication to their sport that goes beyond grit and commitment; they have a true love for their sport.
In 2009, Denver brand agency, FiG Advertising and Marketing was born. Thanks to our two founders, a better way to interact with clients throughout the creative process became our foundation. Since then, the company has grown to 8, moved into a new office and we are happy to be celebrating our 4th anniversary!
Let me tell you a story about three companies. These three companies went out in the world to make their fortune. The first company decided to play it safe and conservative. Only spending money internally making their widgets that would sell eventually not thinking of the here and now. The second company spent liberally on "getting the word out" but thought little about the future. The third company thought carefully about now and then and balanced their approach.
An incredibly fundamental aspect of marketing and advertising that many companies miss, whether they are B2B or B2C, is consistency. Too many people let their fluctuations in budget elsewhere in the company alter their marketing plans significantly.
FiG Advertising + Marketing is happy to celebrate its three year anniversary with everyone that has helped us get to this point. We started the celebration early by moving to our new location down the 16th Street Mall. These past three years have flown by and we couldn't have made it this far without our amazing clients.
