The Power of Social Marketing
Social marketing is the use of marketing to persuade people to voluntarily change behavior, especially to promote health or prevent violence.

We believe in the power of social marketing because it goes beyond raising awareness and focuses on actually changing behavior. Using social marketing, we have successfully helped clients to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.

Social marketing begins with listening to the target audience—really listening and being willing to set aside one’s assumptions. We do this by conducting detailed and thoughtful research with the target audience, and then translating what we hear into creative marketing materials.

We are committed to a creative process that is faithful to the research, and that’s why we pay close attention to the thoughts, feelings, aspirations and fears of the audience, and rely on the very words, phrases and images the audience says they find persuasive.  

We don’t aim to convert the audience to our way of thinking, but rather to adapt the marketing to the perceptions already resident in their hearts and minds.
