Beakbane and clients: A history of productive partnerships

Over the years, our business relationships have followed a pattern: a small initial project leads to another… and another… until we are the client’s key marketing supplier and trusted partner for innovative promotions, trade communications, direct marketing, packaging, and online and social media marketing.

Many of our client relationships have lasted for a decade or longer (eg. Nabisco, Duracell, Alberto-Culver, Elmer’s, Pillsbury, Cadbury Beverages, Hershey, Labatt, GE Silicones, Scotiabank, and Cyanamid/Lederle). During the times when Beakbane was their key marketing supplier, these companies were at their peak of innovation, growth and profitability.

In the 1990s we saw that the best way to achieve results was through integrated marketing. We started working with smaller companies where we could define a focus for the brand, tightly integrating all the elements of the marketing mix to make them work hand-in-glove with each other. Time after time, we achieved extraordinary ROI for our clients on their marketing investments.

We continue to work closely with many companies, advising them and working with them to maximize results from their marketing budgets. After defining the focus for a brand we use whatever communication tactics make sense. In most cases we optimize websites and online communications, with appropriate communications including social media, Facebook advertising and Google Adwords.

We started the business in order use digital technologies to make marketing budgets work harder at a time long before other agencies realized the opportunities. We continue to embrace change and love helping our clients succeed.
