YOU STOP GETTING BOMBARDED BY LINKEDIN NETWORKING REQUESTS FROM PEOPLE YOU MET ONCE

Let’s not kid ourselves – times are still tough. And while the primo parking spots are definitely filling up faster in the morning, few of us are ready to declare the economy fully recovered. That means marketing money remains tight, as purchasers are challenged to do more with less yet again.

Enter Plan B.

From the day we first opened our doors, we’ve been focused on efficiency. It’s a value that’s hard-wired into our agency DNA. We didn’t simply decide to become price sensitive after realizing the economy tanked. All along, our clients have been getting the most for their money because they haven’t been paying for the redundancy of middle management, bureaucratic red tape, and rent on a skyscraper lease.

Nope – all our clients pay for is top-tier talent, abottom-line focus, and our uncompromising commitment to value. All qualities we’ve found work really well in ANY economy.

So even as the rock star parking is slowly disappearing, rest assured there’s one place you’ll always be able to get rock star treatment. It’s good to have a Plan B.
