Suffice it to say, we’ve come a long way since we debuted as InterMedia in 1992. Always known for our creative spots in media like television, radio, and print, we’ve come to excel at services that we couldn’t have even imagined back then: like digital analytics, mobile apps, and social media ads.
Balancing “traditional” and “nontraditional” elements—with a clear perspective of how our industry has grown from then to now—gives us daily inspiration to create unique, results-driven, custom campaigns for each and every client.

Think Like Your Customer
What is it that makes your customers tick? Why do they shop your store, eat in your restaurant, bank at your financial institution, hire your property management company, or attend your college? The more you know about your customer… the more you can get into their heads AND their hearts… the more you can build brand loyalty with your existing customers…and grow your business with new customers.
Before we write a slogan, before we build a website, before we launch a campaign, we think about a unique selling proposition that will differentiate your business in the marketplace and help build category ownership for you. This, along with everything we’ve learned about your customer, is the basis for the marketing strategy that we will develop to take your business to the next level.
Once we understand how your customer thinks, and we have developed a marketing strategy to differentiate your business, we let our creative team go to work in developing your key messages and brand personality. A brand personality that is integrated among every touch point, from the web, to print, to outdoor, to point of sale. Everywhere the customer sees your message should have a consistent voice. It’s something we call 360-degree marketing.
There’s an old phrase in the advertising business that has been around as long as we have. That phrase is: “It’s not creative unless it sells!” In short, your marketing efforts MUST PRODUCE RESULTS! Our mantra of Track. Measure. Manage. says we agree. We set goals and track performance of everything we do. Otherwise how would you know if we did a good job?
Mad 4 Marketing specializes in Branding and Messaging, which becomes a strong foundation for all marketing initiatives moving forward. Many companies jump over this step and get right to marketing their products and services. Big mistake! It is critical that you establish consistent branding across all marketing channels to eliminate confusion on the part of your target audience. Let us show you how to build your brand to withstand!
