Strategy. Messaging. Design.

Branding is often confused as being a logo or a visual identity element, when in fact, that is only a small part of it. We’re one of the few branding agencies in San Diego that have the capability of branding both large and small businesses. They are both quite distinct and require professionals that understand the difference. Whether we are branding a product, service or a company, they require a keen understanding of who your customers are and what their needs, situation, and psychographics are. As a full service branding agency in San Diego we focus on brand strategies, brand messaging and brand design. Compare us to branding agencies in San Diego and across the country and you’ll be hard pressed to find better specialists.

Nothing Reveals Your Personality Better Than Social Media And Live Video.

When iClebo robot vacuums approached us to help launch their brand to the U.S. markets, we knew we had an uphill battle against the major brands such as iRobot. iClebo, owned by the Yujin Robot corporation in South Korea, is a major world leader in the design and manufacturing of social robots and now vacuum robots. Our first step was to add personality to the brand that appealed to the U.S. markets. We focused on two factors, likeability and trust. With this in mind, we began multiple social media campaigns and took the company from zero followers and fans to over 50 thousand within a year. Not to mention, we exposed and attracted iClebo to millions of Americans, including major online retailers across the country.

Amen For Lead Gen!

How Full Is Your Funnel?

Marketing is only expensive when it doesn’t work. We understand this, therefore our mission is to give you the best chance of building leads whether you are marketing a product, a service or your company. We sit down with you, ask the difficult questions, then decide what marketing approaches would be most effective for your goals. We embark on multiple approaches, track as much as we can, conduct A-B testing to see which efforts are developing the best leads, and then tweak and re-tweak to drive more sales.

A Website That Has Great Information And Design, Doesn't Necessarily Make A Good Website.

Your Website MUST Make An Emotional Connection With Your Viewers.

Whether you are B2B or B2C, making a connection with your viewers is achieved through understanding their personalities and lifestyle set at home, not at their business. To appeal to them your website should have creative messaging and high-impact visuals that appeal to their emotional trigger points. Simultaneously, it’s important to display your personality and capabilities. See sample below…

We Write Stuff Really Good.

Only To Get Attention.

The standard at MAD Group for copywriting is difficult to match. We write with attitude and impact. We like attention, and we often get it through our copywriting. The world is full of technical, matter-of-fact copywriting, and we don’t like it. Therefore, we have decided to be a bit more impactful and creative when we write. Yes we break the rules when it comes to grammar and punctuation, but this is advertising and we’re allowed to break the rules. See what we’re capable of below:
