The professionals at Buckingham Advisors, with several locations in Ohio, asked Impact Communications to develop a marketing plan and to assess their future readiness. We determined that their collateral materials, website and social media needed a refresh. Using banner photos of well-known landmarks and Ohio countryside allowed us to reflect the beauty and "can-do spirit" of the region. We also showcase the firm's experience and expertise through a steady stream of multimedia and blog content. When you visit the website, you'll see how we are using all of their media coverage and thought leadership to create a halo effect and strong SEO for the firm. Visit the website here.
Resilience Wealth Advisors, a newly established RIA with three partners, came to Impact Communications with a vision for what their company brand and website should look like in order to align with their mission, values and ideal clients. The partners had very specific reasons for asking us to use a helix as their brandmark, which was subsequently custom-drawn by one of Impact’s skilled illustrators. The color palette and photos are intentionally calm and serene for a reason. By the end of the project, we had created not just their logo but an entire suite of collateral materials, a beautiful new website, and a social media presence to match. Visit the website here.
