What would YOU want to read about?


Let’s pretend that you worked for a company that was looking for a branding/marketing/advertising partner. Caveat: If you really are working for a company that is looking for a branding/marketing/advertising partner, please be yourself.

Imagine that you heard about an ad agency from one of your business friends or heard a representative from the agency speak at an association luncheon. You can imagine the chicken breast and steamed vegetables that were served at the luncheon if you want – it’s not necessary, but more power to you.

You type the agency name into the Google (a really good search engine) and you’re taken to the agency’s page. You’re initial impression is positive – the site is clean and the navigation seems to be logical. You click through their portfolio and then head to the About section to read more. Remember, we’re imagining here – in imagination-land it is not outside the realm of possibility that you actually read this kind of stuff.

Once you’ve landed on the About, what do you want to read there? What do you care about? What do you want to learn?

Thanks in advance for the thoughts.

    I would want to read about how that company enjoys working with clients (with examples) and listening to clients (with examples) and working with clients to create something neither one of them could have imagined before (with examples) that contributes to the success of the client’s business (with lots of examples).

    I would want to know what is the culture – really. What is the way in which you interact with your clients and how to do interact with each other? Are you in teams or are client’s needs sent to different departments? What is the benefit of that structure to the client? Of course you are clever and classy – you are a branding agency – but what about you is different from the rest?
