November 2020

In a recent business conversation, I was asked what 78Madison’s primary attribute was as an advertising agency. Pretty quickly I answered, “making things happen”. I felt fairly good about the answer until the follow up question, “how would you define that?” Ugh. I had to really think fast, although truth be told, I should have had the answer down pat, because, well, making things happen really is at the center of 78Madison.

After a brief pause, I related that most advertising and marketing organizations seem to get things done.  By that I mean they…

  • Reply to emails
  • Do ads
  • Cross off the To Do’s
  • Fulfill their client obligations
  • Go with the flow
  • Anticipate roadblocks
  • Aim for “good enough”

Whereas 78Madison is …. 

  • Always looking around corners
  • Taking risks
  • Setting ambitious goals 
  • Giving more than they take
  • Changing perceptions
  • Forging new paths 
  • Demanding excellence 
  • Collaborative, engaged, curious
  • Thinking Big

In other words, making things happen. 

78Madison never strategizes in a limited way because we know we cannot affect change unless we are willing to take risks…by being fearless and taking the road less traveled. You can’t plant a farm from a conference room. You can’t create a little league field from an office. And you can’t build a company over email. 

At the heart of 78Madison’s success have been thousands of face-to-face conversations, shared cups of coffee and real-life partnerships that work.  

Let’s start a conversation.
