Case Study

Alden’s Ice Cream 

Alden’s needed to reboot it’s 30-year old brand for the new natural channel world.

MARKETING THE NEW ALDEN’S BRAND

Challenge

Dell and Microsoft had an agreement to co-market Dell desktop computers to SMBs, loaded with the Microsoft SBS Server. Easier said than done. Both had competing marketing teams in place, leading to confusion about how to combine their messaging and market with better more synergy.

Solution

After an audit of all marketing & messaging materials from both Dell and Microsoft, I synthesized a messaging platform that was on-brand and on-target for both sides. The engagement required messaging development, project management, group facilitation, and a fair amount of tact.

Teton Waters Ranch

Case Study

Teton Waters Ranch 

What message could Teton Waters tap into that would help it tell the world that grass-fed beef can save the planet?

Agency: RETAIL VOODOO

Introducing the new Teton WATERS RANCH

Challenge

Teton Waters Ranch became a provider of grass-fed beef sausages that outgrew their ranch. When the company moved from the ranch to the city, they found themselves in the midst of an identity crisis the size of Texas. And retailers insisting that the average American would have price sensitivity.

Solution

Research showed audiences would pay more for grass-fed beef, but didn’t really know how to tell what it was. Our solution: Create an identity and a Grass-feducation message that explained both the environmental and health benefits of grass-fed beef.
