Bellevue, Wash. – July 2, 2014 – Ultra Risk Advisors, a national insurance program manager, was the recipient of a “Best of Show” award for its website at the Insurance Marketing & Communications Association’s (IMCA) Annual Conference Showcase Gala.

The Best of Show award is given to the one entry with the highest score for each category. Ultra’s website design entry earned the highest score for the category of External Electronic Communications. The website was designed by M3, a marketing agency based in Augusta, Georgia.

Part 2: Our Office aka the M3 Workspace

It’s rare that an office of people can say that they not only work in a beautiful space but also with beautiful people. Here, at M3 Agency, we are fortunate that we can say both. Through the years we have poured our heart and soul in to the office space, with gorgeous paintings and art displays designed by our art director and her daughter, Lynn and Stephanie Forbes. We consider it an honor to be able to hang these designs by these two talented artists in our office.

Worst Marketing Advice

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

By Molly Richardson, Creative Services Specialist at M3 Agency

Being a marketing agency, we hear a variety of opinions on how to advertise and market a business. Many businesses including other advertising agencies have misconceptions regarding marketing practices. We have seen and heard it ALL including some interesting methods of saving money and stretching ad dollars. With the Search Engine Marketing and Social Media Optimization potential of Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn…everyone thinks they have a degree in marketing. Avoid making these haphazard assumptions yourself and read below.

Worst Marketing Advice by M3Agency

1. My child needs to be in every television spot we produce….because my 11 year old daughter is considered a pro in the automotive industry amongst her elementary school peers. Or even better…my Labrador retriever..he can really sell!

2. I think this bathroom would make a great location to advertise the new entree at my 5 star restaurant!

3. My commercial spot needs to be aired during Sex & the City because that’s my favorite show. Even though my target demographic typically watches the Price is Right and Jeopardy.

4. Do your employees drink like the guys on Mad Men…you know at Sterling & Cooper? I bet the massive amounts of liquor probably improve the creative flow.

5. I have to pay for a website? My neighbor’s sister’s brother-in-law will do it for free. I thought you were a marketing agency.

6.  SEO..You don’t need that!!! (Another agency to a potential client)

7. Yes my Facebook is private…but my customers can find me! All they have to do is search!

8. I thought I would cut out the middle man so I just bought the Adobe Creative Suite…I’ll send you my newspaper ad in a few hours. Now does it need to be in pixels or inches??

9. We need a BRAND NEW image! But don’t change our logo or the website. Thanks.

10. We don’t need any help with marketing. Our word of mouth is enough. And our one 2 star review on Yelp.

 

If you have fallen trap to any of the marketing advice above and you are scratching your head in disbelief please call us at 706-651-0053…we can HELP you!

 

Think you can’t afford to advertise? The truth is, you can’t afford NOT to!

 

 

Behind the Scenes, It’s a NEW Year!

We are exceptionally proud of our entire team at Mass Media Marketing! We ended year 2013 with unbelievable growth. It’s not all about the numbers behind profit either. Our family of clients has grown and made us a very grounded business. We added 4 people to our staff in various departments and positions which has allowed us to provide MORE outstanding results to our clients! And of course, as always, we prospered in vision, creativity, knowledge and camaraderie.

We literally do it all–media buying, web design, SEO (search engine optimization), customer service, video production, web development, creative design (collateral design, event design, direct mail design, logo design, etc.) and every form of internet marketing that we know exists! We like to think that our variety of skills makes us well rounded…much like our orange mascot :)

The staff here at M3 agency used creative vision to plan this commercial for a couple of months before an animator was found. In November, M3 had the pleasure of adding James Tilby to the team. He immediately got to work illustrating produce and the rest of us prepared to film a commercial. With the help of a few local partners we found ourselves in the Kroger grocery store late one night. After that it was simply a race against the clocks to get the video edited and animation completed before the end of 2013.  Below is a shortened version of the commercial for television purposes. Hope you enjoy!

The Growth of Facebook

Monday, June 28th, 2010

Facebook is huge. At over 400 million users, there’s a good chance most of the people you know have had some interaction with this social networking behemoth. Facebook has even opened its doors to let businesses have a crack at drawing fans from Facebook’s users. By creating a fan page, businesses now have access to 400 million potential customers…if they play their cards right. We believe Facebook’s continued growth will expand business opportunities even further especially now that Facebook’s fastest growing user demographic is women 55+. Read this article about the fastest growing demographic on Facebook. We hope you find it informative. As always, if you want to find out more about using this information for your business, don’t hesitate to contact us.
