MARKETING MAGIC

BLACK WEDNESDAY?

Black Wednesday is a creative marketing and PR company that focuses on grassroots efforts to authentically connect brands to their audiences.

At BW, we dive into a client’s brand strategy to custom build marketing programs tailored to fit their vision, voice and goals. We develop creative stories and campaigns that exemplify their core values and beliefs, help them get plugged into the larger dialogues in their communities and seek innovative opportunities for organic coverage and engagement.

We call this brand personification: when your business behaves like a person allowing you to market differently. We want to help you share the living, breathing human passion behind exactly what gets you up in the morning (besides coffee). Let’s be honest, we love coffee, but we’re even bigger fans of the authentic interchange inspired by sharing a cup. Our role: setting the table for your next conversation.

Whether it’s marketing consultancy, public relations, social media, event marketing, or strategy services, if you care about it, we will amplify the message and help you participate differently.

So let’s talk: contact us today and let’s have a conversation about your next conversation.

Let’s talk about the story you need help writing and/or sharing. We can help you design programming and plans to get the word out through traditional and alternative media, social media, your website, influencer marketing and more.

We can create and design your press release to tell your story in an exciting way; we’ll then pitch the media to secure coverage and the third party credibility you need to support the launch of your newest product, restaurant, marketing campaign, rebrand, etc.

In our book, social media is the most powerful marketing tool you have at your fingertips (literally) because for the most part: it’s free. We’ll help you design creative and innovative campaigns, engage with your target audience and grow your community (and sales!).

It’s important for your brand to connect with people online and off, period. AND, well, everyone loves a good party. From grand opening events to media reveals to influencer and blogger events, we’ll get your brand in front of the right people.
