WE CONNECT BRANDS TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE AT THE RIGHT TIME.
We are a small agency with BIG ideas! We’re
22, 23, 24 people who are passionate about the possibilities of the web, social media, mobile platforms, experiential marketing and brand partnerships to engage consumers with brands. And we LOVE what we do!
WE ARE BRAND EVANGELISTS.
We’re your brand’s closest friend; trusted stewards of your company’s vision, mission and aesthetic. We are passionate marketers who judge our success by the results we generate for our clients – you. We focus on deadlines, deliverables and results. And, we monitor both our process and the competitive environment to maintain our clients’ marketing momentum through good times and tough ones.
WE’RE BIG THINKERS IN A SMALL PACKAGE.
Vco combines “big agency” thinking with the ability to be quick and nimble. We can compete in expertise, competency and deliverables with any other agency, large or small. We’ve all held senior positions at big digital shops or brands and have won prestigious awards. We bring that same level of resources, strategy, creative execution, and results to our work for you.
WE’RE EARLIEST ADOPTERS.
Today the consumer drives your business, and the reality is that your customer is probably onto the next big thing before you’ve heard about the last one. Good digital marketing can help you keep up, and we’re obsessive about it. We move with the speed of technology to keep you engaged with your ahead-of-the-curve customers.
WHAT WE DO AND HOW WE DO IT.
Our process starts with an understanding of who your customers are, what they expect from you and how to best reach them in the digital domain. We focus on User Experience (UX) – how your customers use and navigate the Internet, who they engage with using social media, and how and where they use their mobile applications.
Story telling (marketers want to call it “content creation”) is the key to connecting with consumers on an emotional level. Stories about you, your brand or your product that resonate with consumers are what deliver brand loyalty and recall. We’re excellent story tellers. We know how to relate to your consumer in the most compelling way. And, we also know how to deliver your stories across multiple communications channels – blog posts, social media posts and live video, YouTube video and traditional media – to effectively reach your consumers to create that brand loyalty and recall that ultimately leads to product purchase (marketers like to call that “conversion”).
RECENT BRAND SUCCESSES
We’ve assembled an All Star Team of Brand Strategists, Creative Directors and experts in User Experience, Information Architecture, Development, Search Engine Optimization & Marketing, Social Media, Content Creation, Experiential Marketing and Brand Partnerships. All have held senior positions at big agencies or brands, but prefer to work in an environment that fosters excellent work and is focused on finding solutions to our client’s marketing problems. We’re passionate about the possibilities of the web, social media, mobile platforms and experiential events to engage consumers with brands. And we LOVE what we do! We’re based in Atlanta, GA and we’ve been making cut-through-the-clutter marketing since 1993.
MOBILE RESPONSIVENESS IS CRUCIAL
60% of all online content is consumed by mobile devices. 80% of all internet users are using smart phones for online searches and content consumption. Responsive Web Design (RWD) is crucial in creating a great user experience on smart phones and tablets.
If you think about the best recommendation there is – it’s hiring the same organization not once, but twice. That’s exactly what I did in hiring Mike Ventura and Ventura & Co. both in my role as local sales manager at Cox Television’s WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh, and again in Austin while general sales manager at KNVA-TV, then part of LIN Television. Mike is a master at connecting station content to client’s brands through partnerships. Often those partnerships didn’t require traditional spot inventory. During the execution process, the Ventura & Co. team worked closely with the station sales department and the brand management team to make sure every detail was implemented as promised and that everyone’s expectations and goals were met. Not only did Mike do all of this for my clients, he helped me exceed my budget for the years we worked together – which is why I hired him again. Need of shot of ideas and excellent execution? Do what I did, hire Mike Ventura!Pat Niekamp
Last year, we decided to change the focus of our marketing efforts and concentrate more on social media for The Fred Amphitheater’s summer season. We decided to contract with Ventura & Company. They were so easy to work with, accessible and always relevant with their posts. We ended up having a banner year, with our highest gross revenues generated from ticket sales to date!Nancy Price
I can’t tell you how nice the site is. It looks great, and its functionality is awesome. It’s everything you said it would be. Yours, Rob and his team’s efforts in dialing it in and working through the bugs since going live has been super. Thank you!!! I just wanted to drop you a note to say THANK YOU for seeing this through and your commitment to the project along with Rob’s dedication and commitment. It is very much appreciated.Scott Magnuson
Mike and his Ventura & Co. team were invaluable in helping us strategize, position and grow Progressive Voices, a streaming progressive talk “radio” station heard nationwide 24/7/365. He helped us refocus and rebrand, creating a look and feel that was perfect for our positioning to our core listener. They relaunched our social media effort and managed it on a daily basis for two years, during which they achieved amazing engagement on our Facebook page. While most “brand” Facebook page posts reach less than 1% of their Facebook community, ours consistently reached 30%! They designed and implemented a paid social media campaign in targeted markets that had lost their local progressive radio station, letting them know that they could still get progressive conversation on their mobile devices. Mike Ventura is a thought leader in brand strategy and social media and is a key reason for our success.Reed Haggard
