UP AND RUNNING
September 2017

For those of you who have never experienced a hurricane before, well let me tell you as an expert that it can be exciting, invigorating, challenging, frightening and horrifying all at the same time. I grew up in Orlando, Florida having moved here with my family in 1960 when I was 5 years old. I’ve gone through more hurricanes than I can remember or count starting with DONNA in 1960 – even as a 5 year old I remember how powerful and destructive hurricane Donna was to Florida and other areas.

LABOR DAY 2017

For many, Labor Day is known as the last official holiday of the summer where we can enjoy a long weekend of warm weather, white clothes and BBQ’s - although here in Orlando Florida we enjoy warm weather and BBQ all year round.

A MARKETING REVOLUTION
August 2017

Consumer marketing professionals who retired 10 years ago would hardly recognize today’s marketing landscape. Geo-fencing, programmatic ads, text analytics, customer experience management systems and Snapchat would sound like a foreign language. Can you imagine what things will be like in another 10 years? What about next year? Yet here we are in the second half of 2017 with a dizzying array of choices, strategies, and tactics for reaching consumers and converting them into loyal repeat customers.

IT'S MARKET PLANNING TIME
August 2017

It’s hard to believe that it’s that time of year again -- time to begin the process of planning for an entire year’s marketing activities.

Surprisingly, you’d be amazed how many times over the years I have been asked “where to start” when beginning the planning process. I’ve always thought the answer to that question was pretty intuitive – 78Madison’s process of course begins with a summary evaluation of which initiatives have been working over the past year, and which have fallen short of expectations.

THE INFLUENCE OF COLOR
IN VISUAL BRANDING AND ADVERTISING
JULY 2017

It is no secret that color is one of the most prominent features of life. The different shades and values on the color scale that we are exposed to daily is innumerable, even more so with the accessibility of the internet and computer-generated variations of the classic ROY-G-BIV range.

That being said, I want you to think of a color, any color. Got it? Great.

Now define it.

SEO – SURGING TO THE TOP
July 2017

Just wanted to let everyone know out there in SEO land that we do try to practice what we preach here at 78Madison. As you may or may not recall, when we changed our company name from Chisano Marketing Group to 78Madison in January 2016, we were frankly shocked that…

…When we searched for advertising agencies in Altamonte Springs (where we were located), we did not show up on google search until about page 38. Statistically, we didn’t think that was even possible.
