resonance = relationships = revenue.

Customers today have more options, more information and more individualized perspectives than ever before. Context, culture, and brand commitments are as likely to drive sales as price, place and product promotions.

Successful brands today are more relevant, more resonant, relationship driven brands.

Relevancy is kinetic, it moves a business forward, and it occurs when it is clear to the customer how the product or brand contributes to the either customer’s tangible or cultural expectations.

Getting there, means going deeper.

That is why we work to: understand our clients business goals and requirements; analyze their customers’ profiles, needs and aspirations; and then we design a business driving customer experience.

our culture

We are an agency. That means, our culture, our value starts with people. Our people (the team), your people (the clients), the people (the customers). We ideate the future and apply that against our client problems of today. Respect, responsibility and results anchor our actions.

We are an agency. And that also means at our highest calling we represent others. We represent our clients to customers. And we represent customers to our clients.

our values


The reason we exist is help our clients’ businesses win. Winning businesses tend to serve their customers better than the competition. To find customer opportunities we apply human relationship values to everything we do – and the most important value is to CARE. CARE is :

  • To be Concerned. identifying an issue that concerns you that you think can and should be addressed.
  • To Act. To care you must do something about concerns
  • To be Responsible. Caring means you accept ownership and accountability for positively addressing the problem.
  • To strive for Excellence. You have a vision of what “better” should be and you act and take responsibility to truly deliver the vision.1

Caring fuels innovation and value creation. We care about our clients and community.

Kinectivity: The Relationship Theory

We believe depth is the new growth or in other words we believe that better, stronger customer connection = better business returns.
And while what we believe is important, we understand to our clients that facts are more compelling than faith. Kinectivity is our trademark research tool that allows our clients to diagnoses what type of connection your customer has with your brand.
Specifically – Kinectivity allows brands to:

  • quantify / forecast the relationship strength / risks relative to the competition.
  • understand why – what factors are driving connection.
  • develop media and cx strategies based on competitor vulnerabilities.
  • develop marketing / messaging based on strong ties or weak ties relationships.

Kinectivity is the combination of three words “Kin representing family” / Kinetic representing energy / and Connectivity representing bond.
We’ve tracked Kinectivity scores for the past 5 years with 100+ brands and have seen that relative gains in Kinectivity lead to relative gains in business performance.
