Is a creative resource right for you?
Marketing communications staffs have been decimated over the past few years. Now many organizations are pushing on their marcomm directors to produce unprecedented amounts of work, without the support they used to have.
If you are charged with “getting the work out the door” but aren’t in a position to hire a full-time copywriter, art director, project manager or other marketing communications specialists, hiring HanlonMarketingPartners might be the ideal solution to your challenge.
We specialize in bringing award-winning marketing communications capabilities – from an individual to an entire team – to companies, associations, non-profits and other organizations that need big time talent, but only for a limited time.
As an ad agency copywriter, creative director, project manager and former ad agency owner, Gerry Hanlon knows how to help you produce a wide range of marketing communications deliverables that get the job done, efficiently, thoughtfully and cost-effectively. We might even help your organization win some awards in the process. The complete range of capabilities we offer include:
Script-to-screen video production
Website content development and search engine optimization
Concept to completion print communications
Corporate branding themes and logos
TV and radio concepts, scripting and production
Obviously, you have lots of alternatives available these days – ad agencies, outsourcing agencies and that board member’s sister in law. Get in touch with HanlonMarketingPartners though, and you’ll be working directly with the guy who brings an award-winning approach to every project.
How can I be sure to get the results I want?
There are big advantages to working directly with those who are coming up with or designing your next big idea. Gerry Hanlon works directly with clients, making sure that their marketing communications piece(s) communicate clearly and effectively to audiences that have ranged from pre-teens to seniors, from the heads of companies to the citizens of an entire state. Hanlon Marketing Partners help you get across the points you need to make. We'll contribute points you didn’t know you needed to make. And we’ll address all of your concerns from the very beginning, to make sure your work is on target at every stage of its development.
What about direct contact with those creating my work?
While working with me offers a single point of contact for ease of communication, you can also speak directly with other team members at any point in the process. Just as there should be no barriers between the final piece and the audience it’s trying to reach, we make sure there are no barriers between you and the people who are working for you.
Our team has been creating award winning advertising, brochures and comprehensive marketing communications programs for over two decades, for a wide variety of business-to-business and business-to-consumer clients. In an industry where “you’re only as good as your next idea,” we’ve managed to not only come up with those ideas, but to follow through on their development and production for some of America’s most successful organizations. That’s a track record worth exploring when you can’t waste time on anything less than the most dedicated and talented individual or team for your project.
Why not HanlonMarketingPartners?
If maintaining brand consistency is not an issue for your organization, or if just “good enough” is good enough because of the limits on your budget – both valid approaches, by the way – then less experienced alternatives can accomplish your goal effectively and efficiently, as long as you’re personally prepared to spend a bit of extra time managing expectations and the project itself.
How much does it cost?
For everything from on-site content development to script-to-screen video production, our fees are competitive with those you’d expect to pay for experienced marketing communications professionals. What’s more, every project is estimated ahead of time, and we stick to that estimate. Of course, as the project develops, unforeseen circumstances and needs can affect the final charge. But additional work is undertaken only with your approval.
How quickly can you create that?
In most cases, as quickly as you need it. We’ve found that attaching a firm timeline to every project – and delivering each element promptly as promised – is the surest path to satisfaction and success for the work and for you as a client. While it’s in no one’s interest to rush through the development of any communications piece, we’ll work with you to get you the highest quality communications piece possible, in time for when you need it.
How creative will it be?
We’ve won dozens of marketing communications awards for our work and clients, including a national Silver Anvil award in 2009 from the Public Relations Society of America. We bring that approach and attention to every last detail to every project.
Who’ll be my point of contact?
Gerry Hanlon. He's pretty good at listening, so you can be sure that every detail is covered. And I bring that attention to detail to the team(s) that make sure you get everything you were expecting. And more often, more than you were expecting.
