Culture Strategy Capabilities
We believe in Informed Design, where research, insight, and experience drive creative. More than logos and layouts—it’s strategy, data, and code. Here, there’s no room for egos and artistic self-indulgence. Only beautiful solutions.

Culture

Individually, we’re educators, writers, students, entrepreneurs, volunteers, artists, and community leaders. Together, we’re a team of passionate people who want to do good for clients who do good. Sure, we may never get rich. We’ll always be weird. And we’ll continue to treat beer, coffee, and salted caramels as food groups. But what a ride it is.

The great marketing strategist (and occasional writer) Mark Twain said, "If we were meant to talk more than listen, we would have two mouths and one ear."

If evolution cooperated, we’d hire strategists with four ears. Listening makes it easier to set prejudices aside, shelve preconceived notions, and honestly consider what customers, prospects and stakeholders are saying.

Research Research

We developed the Discover360™ to help us better understand your brand and its challenges. It includes:

AudienceScan

Who are your audiences? Who (or what) influences them? How do they make purchasing decisions? What motivates them to action? idfive’s AudienceScan process can deliver the insights you need to connect with the audiences you seek.

MarComScan

An analysis of your marketing and communications materials, programs, and strategies to improve your visibility, effectiveness, and impact.

CompetitiveScan

A comprehensive view of you, your competitors, and where you stand in relation to them online and offline.

TrafficScan

The traffic patterns on your site reveal an enormous amount of information about how your customers and prospects experience your organization online.

ContentScan

Whether migrating to a new website or embarking on a new communications strategy, we provide a comprehensive analysis of the brand impact of your current communications.

Data is useless if you don’t do anything with it. Rather than simply sharing insights, we’ll work together with you to determine how best to act on them. You’ll never be left wondering, “Where do I go from here?” Give us the wheel, and buckle your seatbelt.

Plan Plan

Our strategic roadmap has multiple stops along the way. We invite clients to hop on or off where it makes sense.

Brand Alignment

We collaborate with you to find the gaps in how you express your brand and then create the plan that will allow us to project your core brand attributes.

Creative Strategy

We determine the best way to engage your audiences in order to create a strategy that helps you reach your goals.

Media/Campaign Strategy

We execute integrated, data-driven campaigns, and then fine-tune them through active management for ongoing campaign optimization.

Perform
Perform

We started idfive because we couldn’t sit back anymore and watch as ad agencies and web firms dodged responsibility for the results their work delivered, especially when their clients were schools and non-profits that have to account for every precious dollar spent. We’ve made it our mission to make measurement and management every bit as important as media and messaging.

Perform Perform

Traditional agencies’ work ends when they get their commission on media. Design boutiques are done when they deliver a logo everyone hates the least. And digital firms just hope the check clears before you find the first bugs on that brand new site.

We go into every client partnership with the expectation that it will last years. Unlike many firms, we actually want to be around when the results roll in.

We use a data-rich feedback loop that measures, optimizes, and delivers the right message through the right media to the right audiences—at the right time. It’s not rocket surgery, just a little thing we like to call being accountable.

Active Management

We don’t charge commission on media. Anyone can place an ad and take 7%. Instead, we earn our keep through the active management of campaigns. Through manual and programmatic media buying, we’re able to manage clients’ budgets responsibly.

Integrated Marketing

We support the entire customer lifecycle across all media—traditional, digital, owned, branded and unconventional. From education and acquisition to nurture and upsell, we work closely with clients to help them get closer to their customers.

Capabilities
Anyone can say they do good work, but does that good work actually work? However you decide to partner with idfive, you can be sure that we’ve got the talent, creativity, and knowledge to make sure it will.
