Consistent branding of who you are and what you stand for creates brand equity that can be invaluable for your business. Your advertising, website all communicate your brand.

Brand preservation

A strong brand has intrinsic as well as extrinsic qualities. For example some people want to do business with locally owned businesses. If local is part of your brand that may make your business the first one shopped by many consumers.

Everything you do with your logo should reinforce your branding message and reflect positively on your business.

We Work With All Forms of Media

  1. Media that matters

    Before we select the medium we always ask the questions to make sure it’s the right medium for our clients, and our client’s message.

    7Storms Advertising has plenty of experience with media. At the same time we started our agency the internet was becoming more mainstream as an advertising medium.

    7Storms had decided to move away from the cost per point evaluation of media to a cost per thousand based evaluation that had been the way the currency of electronic media had been evaluated. The internet was using CPM’s so our timing, while coincidental, was perfect. Like an old baseball player said years ago, ‘Lucky beats good every day!

    Evaluating all mediums on a CPM basis is fair and gives us platform to negotiate from with the media. We have a reputation for negotiating hard but fairly, and we value long standing relationships with vendors who exceed our, and our clients, expectations. Expressing our thanks for over delivering set us apart from other something other agencies. We know where hidden gems are that give our clients value in print, Internet, electronic and outdoor.

    We believe using the media to show competitive differences and unique selling points for our clients. A strong message and well executed media plan brings powerful results.

  2. Your Vision Your Way

    99% of all US households in America have at least one television and most Americans spend almost three hours per day watching television.

    With such a large audience a well crafted commercial has the potential to grow your business like no other form of media.

  3. Your Voice In Radio

    Its estimated that every week more than 230 million Americans listen to the radio. That's 94% of Americans over the age of 12.

  4. The Power Of Print

    7Storms Advertising believes that concise, uncluttered print ads resonate with readers more than an ad cluttered with an overabundance of offers ever can. Getting to the heart of what a client wants their advertising to say about them allows the agency to create a print ad that readers will remember and react to.

  5. Innovations In Social Media

    Advertisers can use social media to connect with their current and potential customers. The best uses of social media are when it’s used in a way that allows the advertiser to touch the consumers in helpful, non invasive manner. People do not use social media to hear sales pitches but they will pay attention to news, tips, and funny stuff from an advertiser that enhances their social media experience.
