Our Alpha Futures-labs with our Board of Advisors are quarterly meetings wherein we gather data on all of Alpha’s campaigns, utilizing systems-mapping to project for communications trends and develop a sustainable approach to PR, media, business design and development.
We seek agility, sustainability and maximum impact while reducing risk and enhancing space for creativity and bold ideas while utilizing a holistic approach.
We investigate our clients, learn their in’s and out’s and get to know them and their products intimately. We watch their films, eat their food, listen to their music and inhale their books. We design comprehensive campaigns based on their needs, goals, insights and visions.
We train every client according to their needs; Some clients need a strong media presence coach, others key message training or social media branding. We meet with our clients to determine how to optimize their campaigns while aligning with their key messages, internally and externally.
We execute on a clearly communicated and transparent campaign, keeping our clients abreast of our process at every turn. We work fast and hard, creating rapid iterations of our approach during each campaign to be able to connect with the intended audience best.
