Vitelity Advertising Campaign Image

Vitelity Advertising Campaign

Vitelity is a company specializing in wholesale VolP solutions for resellers of their products and services focusing on both businesses and end consumers.

We needed to make a statement, drive awareness, and increase interaction with their customer base.

Vitelity needed posters, stand-up displays to use for event marketing purposes, and a website redesign with a new branding effort to make sure that their

newly-established look and feel was consistent across all of their marketing materials.

The two things that set Vitelity apart from their competitors are experience and longevity. They have a rich history, and having been in the business communications industry for over a decade, they boast an impressive amount of expertise. Additionally, they have technology that provides them with a competitive advantage, allowing them to deliver complex communications A consistent marketing approach starts with a branded visual identity. Our task was to help Vitelity define what their company goals were so that they could reach their target market more effectively. We did this by developing a brand and style guide, so that Vietlity could see where their brand was currently, where it was going, and how their marketing materials could help them reach more potential clients.  

Pickens Technical College Integrated Marketing Image

Pickens Technical College Integrated Marketing

Pickens Technical College (PTC) is a community college located in Aurora, Colorado. It offers students the chance to learn the skills they’ll need to pursue a successful career in anything from graphic design to automotive repair and everything in between. PTC’s philosophy is to let its students learn by doing the things they’ll be expected to do once they enter the workforce.

We were tasked with developing an

integrated marketing plan for PTC that allowed them to connect with prospective students and explain the benefits of the technical college framework – a quicker path to a degree, experienced instructors, and hands-on learning opportunities. Our plan incorporated content marketing, social media campaigns, and more.

Along with our marketing campaign, we developed the materials to promote it. This included printed marketing materials, a revamped website, and even apparel.  

Advanced Vision Technologies Trade Show Marketing Image

Advanced Vision Technologies Trade Show Marketing

AVT is a unique contact lens manufacturer that combines real-world experience with expert consultation to meet the most challenging contact lens demands. They specialize in the innovative design of premium and specialty contact lenses, providing optometrists with exceptional products and support.

AVT needed tradeshow graphics for the Global Specialty Lens Symposium (GSLS), a conference focused on the management of

ocular conditions using specialty contact lenses and continued education efforts. Since this was the biggest show of the season, it was very important that AVT make a splash that introduced their new design system, drove awareness, increased prospects within their sales funnel, and provided events in a fun, stress-free environment.

AVT differentiates themselves by providing contact lenses that are not required to have a fitting set, which results in less time needed to fit the lenses. This ultimately results in cost savings for the target market as they spend less time on each patient. They also wanted to communicate a secondary message that their lenses ensure OD’s have an easier time fitting, inserting and removing the product on the patient. This results in a patient who has less anxiety, pain, and is ultimately more satisfied with the entire process, resulting in a better brand image for both optometrists (ODs) and AVT.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the executive chairman of the Seattle Fish Company, a sustainable seafood company in Denver and was the past Chairman of the Green & Gold Foundation, an independent organization that raises money to donate back to Colorado State University.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Encite Branding + Marketing + Creative?

I was working to help rebrand the Green & Gold Foundation, starting with website and logo development.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted an agency that would guide us through the process of defining the brand and help us with visual elements.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I’d known Adam for some time through our involvement in the Green and Gold Foundation. I reached out to him, and we started talking. I quickly realized that I was working with the right person for the job.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Encite guided us through branding activities, and reworked the logo and website so they better communicated what we do. and that can continue to grow in the future.

What was the team composition?

I worked primarily with Adam, the president. He delegated to his staff, who did everything from the physical design to the website concepts.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Encite helped me encompass the whole organization into a cohesive brand that is going to bring us success moving forward. We have continued to add members at a steady rate and continue to see more engagement from local alumni.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Their team was great. Adam always followed up to see what had been effective, how things were received, and if there was anything else we needed to do. They kept in close contact, especially in the beginning stages of developing the logo, the colors and the content. They made sure we was getting the response that we were looking for.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Encite truly understands that it’s about the customer’s success and not theirs. Unlike a lot of companies, they’re not trying to create something they like, but something you will. They understand the market and use that expertise to fulfill their customer’s vision.

Adam and his team helped us develop the ideas that were already in our head, and turn the creative ideas into physical deliverables that we have been able to put into practice - our case, the logo and website. We didn’t really know what message we should be communicating, much less how to do so. Adam and his team helped us do that.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, not really. Other companies might have done things differently, but I don’t think it could have been any more effective. encite nailed it.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the COO at incredibles, a high-quality, handcrafted cannabis-infused edibles company. I oversee sales and business development initiatives.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Encite Branding + Marketing + Creative?

We wanted to revamp our whole marketing image, from packaging to marketing materials. We needed a marketing firm to hone our brand image from scratch, and increase brand awareness and our position in the marketplace.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to boost our brand awareness and position in our target market.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Their owner is a friend. We were considering other firms, but they weren’t the right fit. Encite gave us the best presentation, and we were sold.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

They conducted extensive research on our competition and industry, and brought that back to our senior leadership team for a strategy workshop. They started from the ground up, developed messaging and positioning that made sense. We wanted to change our logo, and put ourselves in a better position for our customers. They overhauled all of that, including consumer-facing elements like our website, as well as marketing material for the budtenders that handle our product directly. They helped with messaging and design in almost every aspect. Luckily, we were able to work with a team who understood the big picture and could successfully execute it. They also let us do some of the work on our side internally, which helped us budget wise and brought our team up to speed on the transition.

What was the team composition?

We had one main point of contact who delegated all the work on his side.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Our work with Encite has really bolstered brand awareness. Both engagement on our site and sales increased.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Very. They’re consistently responsive, and are extremely easy to work with.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Sometimes, they had great ideas that didn’t necessarily fit our vision, so they adjusted. They kept brainstorming, and eventually came up with creative that worked. They didn’t charge me for every little email or phone call, and they made the experience feel personal. I felt like I had a true partner.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, there’s nothing that jumps out to me. I recommend them highly, and still do work with them both personally and professionally.
