Showing Gratitude: The Importance of Client Appreciation

These days, it seems like customer appreciation has taken a back seat in the midst of this hectic thing called life, and on the opposite side of the fence, loyalty is in short supply.

Recently HenkinSchultz helped the SDSU Foundation orchestrate and produce a spectacular Donor Celebration Event. The goal was to show donors their direct impact on these kids' lives and the ways in which they are opening doors that would have never been available if not for…

Playlist of the Week: Spring 2014 Vibes

A few weeks ago, my splendid coworker Fletch crafted a solid little playlist to prepare us for spring. Little did we know that we would be in for at least 3 more weeks of chilly weather. That said, I thought maybe we can try this again with another mix that can perhaps help us transition into spring with some pizazz. So I gathered some of my favorites tunes to come out in 2014 thus far and loosely compiled them into somewhat of a cohesive playlist to help us bring those warm spring and summer vibes.

Defining Your Brand Style

You may not be able to define it, but you know it when you see it. You have your own personal style - your brand. From the clothes you wear to the car you drive and the friends you choose to the social media you post, you have created your own personal brand. For the most part, this happens unconsciously. It's a natural extension of your personality. You may sanitize it a little (if you're smart) and streamline the message a little, but generally, it's a reflection of you. Too bad it's not nearly so easy for a company to…

In the cutthroat business that is fast food, a company must position itself as the better option - or blatantly smear the other's name from here to Mexico.

Watch the Thrones. No, Seriously. Everyone Else Is.

As anticipation for the season four premiere of Game of Thrones reaches a fever pitch, HBO's marketing department has kicked things into full gear in promoting its flagship program. From an onslaught of trailers to a hip-hop mixtape to releasing a branded craft beer, the shadow cast by the television juggernaut has been seemingly inescapable. Perhaps most impressive of all of this, is the art collection commissioned by HBO. Teaming with artist Robert M. Ball, the network has been releasing a new piece of art daily, each highlighting the most noteworthy death in the episodes leading up to the new…

Creating a consistent marketing message, you can say that again.

With any new marketing campaign, it's important to define long-term goals and expectations for those goals. It is great to have a fantastic campaign but knowing whether it sticks with the target can be hard to measure or stand the test of time. So what does it take to make a campaign stand the test of time? That would be a consistent message. Brand strategy and communication need to reinforce a continuous message. In essence, what are you trying to tell these people? Some brands go with a great slogan like Burger King 'Have it Your Way', or a catchy…
