EXPERTISE & PASSION

WE'RE DEDICATED TO HELPING MANUFACTURERS AND INDUSTRIAL CLIENTS GROW THROUGH SUPERIOR MARKETING COMMUNICATION EFFORTS.

As a full-service marketing communications firm, Studio/D seats messages, builds preferences and informs decisions, all while growing leads and revenue for our clients.

Yet, unlike other agencies, we focus our attention on industrial and manufacturing clients, and the companies in their supporting ecosystem. It’s through this passion and focus that we’ve developed our expertise:

Provide best-in-class communication programs specific to the needs of manufacturing and industrial clients.
If you're a CPG company or a retailer, we may not be the best agency for your communication programs. But if you produce goods that are sold to other companies, if you want to grow your sales, and if you've supported previous marketing programs, we should talk.

We have a passion for working with “makers” – the dedicated leaders of manufacturing and affiliated companies. We find that makers have a special energy level, infusing themselves in the goods and services they make. They enjoy providing opportunities for their teams to learn, grow and prosper. They’re competitive, smart and passionate about working with others who share a similar energy.

Like you, we’re also makers. We create and deliver impactful communications. We simplify complex communication challenges with messaging that drives results. We problem-solve and improve techniques.

WHY WE EXIST.

Author and organizational consultant, Simon Sinek calls it our “why.” This is our reason for being, and it’s why we wake up excited to start every new day and tackle new challenges. It’s found at the intersection of four areas:

Helping clients grow through superior marketing communications is the life work of everyone at Studio/D, and we're exceptionally gifted at it. We've found that  manufacturers need our assistance and we are able to price our work to provide a great return. This is why we exist.

We’ve found our "why," and our clients have found theirs too. When we overlay our “why” with those of our clients, it makes for an unstoppable force. We’re each passionate and talented in our individual crafts, and when we pair your products and services with our communications expertise, really great things happen.

SERVICES

Every plan we develop, every creative element we produce, and every message we deliver for our clients is handled by professionals who average more than 15 years of mar-com experience. Skip the agency learning curve and fast forward to the results you need.

Slide Strategy & Plan Development

Every worthwhile project begins with a plan: purpose, direction, resources, timing and responsibilities. And every good plan starts with asking the right questions. The team at Studio/D brings strategic firepower and industrial marketing communication experience that will give you confidence in every project we address with you.

Slide Marketing Research and Analysis

From qualitative or quantitative research, to insights and action, Studio/D eliminates speculation in your sales and marketing efforts. Our voice-of-customer documentation, persona exercises and custom journey mapping provides you with a deep understanding of your markets and the behaviors of your prospects.

Slide Digital Marketing

Digital approaches are a mainstay for industrial and manufacturing companies, and they have taken on even more emphasis with Covid. Websites, SEO, SEM, content creation, email marketing, marketing automation...so much to do online and best practices and regulations change constantly. Let Studio/D's team address these efforts for you.

Slide Creative Solutions

At our heart, we're all story-tellers. We create compelling communications for your prospects. We do this in any format from print to digital, audio to video - whatever your audience uses. Our B2B creative builds action. We ensure engagement by being unexpected yet relevant.

Slide Media Planning & Negotiation

Getting the most value from your paid media investment requires more than just conversations with ad reps. Let Studio/D separate the hyperbole from the facts. We'll uncover and secure the proper placements, value-adds, multi-channel opportunities and pay-to-play editorial to build leads for your sales team.

Slide Public Relations & Social Media

When a trade media reporter comes to your booth at a trade show, are you prepared with content? Planning earned media is just part of the picture. The best companies are vigilantly prepared for any media opportunities that arise. Studio/D will have you ready and prepped to capitalize on these opportunities. Likewise, social media is tied to content that is often produced now by PR writers, linking these two communication channels.

Slide Campaign Success Metrics

At Studio/D, we love success metrics. We work to establish a clear vision of what success looks like to each client, then we set metrics to measure the success of our campaigns. We regularly report on our success, and apply what we learn to future efforts.

OUR TEAM - Meet Our Key Staff

The Studio/D team has won many awards for marketing communications and public relations work and is widely known for our ability and passion.

Studio/D runs an efficient staff of seasoned professionals, each averaging more than 15 years of experience. We are all continuous learners who challenge and push each-other to new professional heights. Think of Studio/D as a hybrid agency – mostly brick and mortar, but with some virtual aspects as well. This helps us keep our overhead low, providing clients with more efficiency.
