Strategic Planning

At Spitfire, we believe that successful business strategies evolve from asking questions.

All kinds of questions —including those questions customers, users, clients or others might ask.
Sometimes a client already has the information, but if we don't ask questions, we may never know. We gather intelligence from as many sources as possible, including when available, working with focus groups and through primary research.

From this information-gathering process, we identify opportunities, develop objectives, set goals, and determine benchmarks to evaluate a plan's success. Spitfire defines market characteristics, creates messaging, and identifies the tactics, tools, media and promotional mix that reaches the target market, builds awareness and sparks action without blowing the budget.



Campaign Development and Delivery

From retail, festivals, and home security, to software, financial planning, and everything in between; Spitfire has developed creative concepts that resonate in the marketplace and campaigns that produce measurable results.

Contact us today and let's work together to create communications and campaigns that connect with your market.


Branding and Brand Management

So, what’s your story?  What does your brand say about you, your product or service, or your business?

And more importantly — does your customer experience it the same way?

From the corporate environment and policies to your online presence, from customer service to the product itself, branding is an essential part of building the consumer experience. Build a good relationship, and you'll have a customer for life, fail to do so at your peril. Hell hath no fury like a consumer scorned. On average, an unhappy customer will tell twice as many people about a bad experience than a good one.

Spitfire helps clients to define their brand personality and find the tone and words that best convey what differentiates them in the market. Consistency in the market eliminates confusion, builds brand loyalty, and fulfills a consumer need.

Red-Hot Delivery

On Target

It’s like speaking Japanese to a French audience— without the benefit of a translator. Even if you've got "the next big thing" making a  connection would be challenging and selling your product, virtually impossible. Makes perfect sense, but many times companies forget that connecting is the first step. When you make a connection people sit up and take notice. Your audience is listening. Now all you need is a concise, but memorable message that's benefit-driven and converts interest to action.

Contact Spitfire today and get an experienced marketing translator working for you.

Marketing and advertising have always held a fascination for me. Maybe it was the intense appeal of the TV commercials I grew up on, or the seductive pretend-world of the advertising biz I absorbed on TV shows like Bewitched and 30 Something?  Who knows, but what I did know was that I wanted to work in that "biz."  Years later, during my graduating year at Ryerson, an industry insider from a very large, very internationally-renowned, and heavily-awarded advertising agency spoke to our class. He said that at their agency, many of us could expect to spend our first five years buying media for a single product.  I had made up my mind.

I decided to go small, get my hands dirty, and learn as much as I could from the talented people around me.

Five years later, the small agency I was working for as a production manager moved to new offices. There was a beautiful window in my office that my desk faced. The irony was not lost on me that my window looked into the windows of that very same ad agency.
