The Work Hive – It’s How We Work

18 months ago, we played our Hunch and started our very own marketing business here in Saskatoon. Today – we have no regrets leaving the worker-bee lifestyle of a nine-to-five even though it felt like jumping out of an airplane at the time. How did we make it work? We brought together super talented freelancers and collectively, we formed our very own work hive.

To create a controversial ad or play it safe…that is the question!

In today’s society where social media and viral videos are at the top of the marketing game, advertising campaigns must be able to break through the noise, grab your attention and create a buzz! Every year, people around the world complain about ads, taking offence to the messages intended merely to sell products. On that same note, it is often times these ads that go viral, where millions of eyeballs are stimulated by the “shock advertising”.

Transform Your Company Blog Into A Marketing Machine

So you decided as a company you were going to start blogging. You hear it’s the cool thing to do and everyone is telling you that it could really help your business. You call a team meeting and lay it all out for your staff. To keep things organized, you even put together a blog schedule and your team now has a new item on the To-Do-List every week. Sounds great but in reality, things get messy. Your blog is full of boring and blah content that your staff is just throwing together so they can say they got it done.

Now your biggest fear is that your readers and clients will think this is junk but don’t worry, there are steps you can take to transform your blog into an effective marketing machine.

Our Time with the University of Saskatchewan

We are Saskatoon’s small business marketing agency and our management team and contractors are all University of Saskatchewan alumni. Why am I telling you this? Well because a few months ago, we were approached to create a “recruitment experience” for the U of S.  It was a no-brainer for us. We’re proud U of S alumni and it was a great way to get back into the University scene…I would love to go back for just one more term (I think most of us alumni would say the same thing).

Every year, universities across Canada set out with a goal of attracting students from close to home and around the world. The U of S has a lot to offer but year after year, a generic Powerpoint presentation was their main communication tool for recruitment. Boring! They knew it…we knew it. Nowadays, fancy transitions and cool photography just doesn’t cut it. With today’s technology, there are so many cool things to be done. This year, they wanted to break through the noise and throw a curve ball. The U of S brought on our team to create a recruitment experience like none other. They wanted to stand out from the crowd and make a statement! We did just that.

Inbound Marketing VS Outbound Marketing – We Have A Winner

inbound-marketing-vs-outbound-marketingIt’s a crowded world out there and marketing is now about breaking through all the noise and being relevant. Sounds easy right? Not so much. Is your marketing strategy resulting in sympathy cards? Don’t worry – you are not alone. In fact, most small business owners in Saskatoon are facing the exact same pain points when it comes to marketing their product or service. In today’s society, people have to get away from “build it and they will come” and instead focus on “build it, market it and they will come.” There are two ways to market your business or organization and it’s a mighty clash between “Inbound Marketing” vs “Outbound Marketing”.
