Create Virtuous Loops 

Content for the win | Vol. 5, No. 4

Clients come to us looking for something specific like a new website or print campaign. The opening project is a big step in the process. Once we have a greater understanding of a client's various Marcom challenges and opportunities, and a bit of earned trust, we begin to promote the positive nature of virtuous loops.

A virtuous loop in marketing is when a promotional offer drives a prospect to retail or to an event, where a deeper immersion in the branded environment occurs. Ultimately, the store or event experience then drives the person back to the web, where they can relive the experience, add their perspective and plan for the next in-person interaction. 

Few things impact or influence a person more than time spent in a store, or at a company event. This is where lasting impressions are made. Now, how do we get this necessary face time with your company's best customers and prospects? How do we get the chance to impress in person? Advertising. Advertising's job is to drive desirable actions and outcomes—in this case, to motivate people to act.
