Brand Strategy

You can have the best, most professional content in the world.

We prioritize what we have access to, and what we can create efficiently to deliver maximum value.

Video Production

Social Media Management

Looking after your brand’s social media presence is a full-time job and requires regular attention. The landscape is regularly shifting and customers are won and lost based on how you operate in this space. Each channel and each platform are slightly different, requiring a tailored approach from your brand’s voice. 

We take the guess work out of it for you and recommend the most effective channels for your brand to focus on because having a presence on every single one of them is unsustainable. Social requires its own strategy, its own content production, and its own form of analytics to understand what kinds of content your audiences is interested in seeing from you. Dynamic content calendars and real-time analytics keep you informed of what you need to know.

Whether you need 30,000 ft. Guidance or inspiring graphics for your social media, we are ready when you are.

Ambassador Management

Promoting your work on social media through others can be extremely effective. The ability to associate yourself with people who have invested in building an audience you seek to serve allows you a third-party microphone for your brand. At the same time, paying people with high follower counts in a slippery slope. Followers can be easily bought, and ads can be placed in poor context that you would otherwise avoid with your brand.

Our 360-degree network has brought us close with dozens of creative and popular social media creators that make for excellent brand ambassadors – because they use your product. The content they generate is raw and unfiltered and the authenticity is unmatched. We advise clients to go this route only when they have a product they strongly believe in and are willing to let it get analyzed by millions of individuals.

Business Services, Operations and Executive Communication

Any marketing campaign you develop and spearhead doesn’t have its best chance to thrive without leadership buy in. As a marketer, a massive part of your job is to ensure your company's wider leadership believes in and supports your campaigns from the top down. This level of consistency and iteration through your internal teams will make the world of difference and is a ratchet you can use to improve ROI on any campaign you are running.  

SD recognizes this and has developed a specialized service to make sure you the internal hero that you are. To support the campaigns we develop from the top down we also design, build, manage and execute internal email campaigns and business presentations that highlight what worked and what needs improvement. With our objective insight and guidance, you are empowered with data points to perpetuate your work. 

Beyond communicating with leadership, the systems you have in place make a big difference in how productive you are and how smooth your operations run. Our insight of the end user experience and technical skillset with the best tools create a combination that can automate what you’d otherwise be doing manually – like approving asset requests and taking in business-purpose data.

Microsite Recaps

If you don’t produce a recap for your campaign, did it ever happen? And you built a recap out of a slide deck, would anyone open it?

Recap content should not be an afterthought just because it is the last thing you produce for a given campaign. For us, it is just as critical as the campaign itself because the recap is what allows you to spread the story to people who weren’t aware of the work you did. Especially effective for internal audiences, our recaps make a lasting impression.

We produce our recaps like it’s - with an online microsite. A custom domain, mobile-friendly, secure, unindexed, beautiful and visual recap that is always showing your audience the most up to date content.
