Execute Social Media Plan.

Develop Code Book, Pre-Flight Arrangements, Terms of Service, Style Guide and Messaging Documents to allow flexibility in engagement.

Develop Code Book. Flexibility. Engagement. Empowerment.
Develop code book with a detailed plan of what we are doing, what we agree to execute and where we want to be. Need certain level of flexibility to make lateral and vertical moves quickly. While prioritizing the plan, sometimes window are created that we can capitalize if we have prior approval and can run with the ball. Determine LEGIT and not-legit parameters.
Develop Pre-Flight Arrangements.
Green may mean go, but there are levels of approval we agree on for certain agenda items and other layers of approval for social media profile development to work smoothly (at all hours of the night).
Terms of Service.
Agreed upon terms for how we handle giveaways, how we handle negative feedback. How we handle positive feedback, how we go back to management with critical action items, etc. Ultimately business & legal affairs sets this agenda, but there is a negotiation to get best terms possible for SM.
Style Guide.
Use of logo. Use of fonts. Colors. Monikers. Taglines. All the obvious stuff. How we position and brand. Must keep this consistent throughout. And correct those places where errors may exist.
Messaging Documents.
Ideally, we’ll go week to week with a concerted effort ensuring that messaging/content used for our Advertising and PR is being utilized and leveraged strategically with social media & online marketing.
Success linked to Internal Coordination.
Strong desire to coordinate with Brand Manager, VP of Marketing, Web Developer, Key programmers, SEO manager, PR Manager, and Sales Manager. Ideal team will work closely together. Can work independently, but have seen most success when it’s collaboration.

Who are we

Who are we

It used to be acceptable to throw around words like ‘one stop shop’ or ‘full service’ or ‘jack of all trades’… but it’s 2014 and the reality is – either you have experience in strategy and campaign development or NOT and you either produce good design work (graphics, logos, bcards, websites, brochures, flyers, etc.) or NOT.

No one has ever walked away from BROEKMAN communications saying, “Wow, those guys lack serious design skills.” Nope, not on my watch.

Yes, we all get busy and sometimes, things do take longer than expected. But isn’t getting your brand identity set-up with strategic thought and process worth it? After all this is how you are going to present yourself! AND, please trust that we don’t want something we’re not proud of floating out there.

Our philosophy is to learn what works best for you, the client. Just because we like to email you LOTS of options, doesn’t mean we won’t cater to your preference and desire to sit face-to-face and tweak live.

When you say I really need to get this done now… there are MANY times when we can literally drop our projects and prioritize your immediate need. WHY? Because we care. We are ALL about our clients as if it’s our production. We prioritize our clients, because they immediately become friends… if not like family. We treat others like we want to be treated.

Here there is no boss, no client, no vendor….
we are PARTNERS,
we are a TEAM,
we are HUSTLERS here to get the job done right the first time.
We are motivated to help you execute the best possible plan/campaign/logo/bcard/website/blog/fb/twitter/landing page/ad possible. 🙂
