Think Tank is a marketing, advertising, and social media agency that is rooted in social storytelling. For nearly 10 years, we have worked with companies that have a story to be told. Our clients are passionate about what they do and want to share their work, product or service with the community. We work very closely with business owners and arts producers to determine the best mix of marketing and advertising to shape their story and achieve their goals.
We develop and execute strategic marketing plans, social media tactics, messaging, promotional opportunities, press and media relations, and advertising. Every client’s marketing mix is different and we focus on tracking results. Our long-term relationships with our clients allow us to adjust and pivot their marketing as necessary – with the ultimate goal of achieving success.
We like to say that we are social-centric. What does this mean? It means we help our clients thrive in a social world. Think about it. Being social requires you to build trust, engage in two-way communication, pick up on non-verbal cues, and analyze interactions. For many of us this is subconscious in our day to day interactions.
As it applies to our clients, it’s purposefully conducting business by being mindful of your community, by being authentic and contributing to the community. It’s listening, connecting, and reaching out to others — knowing that you are not alone and that, maybe, you are stronger together.
Right now, because we can’t be as social in person, the world is very much online. We partner with clients to ensure that they remain socially-connected, working closely with them to determine the best mix of marketing and advertising to tell their stories and achieve their goals.
