Replacement parts, both new and remanufactured, are big business for Gilbarco Veeder-Root, but customers were having trouble identifying the parts they needed and locating a source for purchase.
Brogan & Partners worked closely with Gilbarco to build an online catalogue in keeping with the brand look and feel of all Gilbarco materials. The categories reflect core products and are easily searched to find the parts that are needed.
The parts catalogue has gotten rave reviews from distributors and Gilbarco customers alike.
Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS)
We needed to increase positive awareness of the Michigan State Medical Society and its benefits by spreading the word to young, hospital-employed doctors, current MSMS members and medical practice office managers, that MSMS is the longstanding, reputable organization that protects physicians and the future of their profession.
We created and produced a full-fledged brand campaign complete with print, interactive, eBlasts, microsite and posters. The creative executions featured smart, attention-getting visuals and messages that engaged and enchanted the target audiences in the medical community.
Long a leader in the gas "dispensing" industry, Gilbarco Veeder-Root was also a leader in technology. While the company itself had unmatched convenience store expertise and innovative, comprehensive products, their image hadn't caught up. We needed to establish a clear brand for Gilbarco.
We brought a human touch to technology through direct mail, advertising, collateral material, interactive tools and a microsite. The consistent brand campaign helped them exceed sales forecasts and secured them the technology leadership position. International affiliates are now adopting the brand.
Oakland County Medical Society
Oakland County Medical Society needed a marketing partner that could support their long-term mission as the "voice of physicians of Oakland County." We had to develop consistent, branded strategies that increased young physician membership while retaining established physicians, all on a tight budget.
We created a new, vibrant brand that included a logo, theme line, Facebook engagement ads, lounge posters and eBlasts to doctors, linking them to the recruitment microsite. There were more than 400 visitors to the site within one month of the launch and very positive feedback from physicians.
Blue Care Network
Blue Care Network (BCN) wanted to position itself as a leader in preventive healthcare and reinforce the connection between BCN and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. They were looking for a new articulation of their brand, one that could also extend to some of their innovative new products like, Healthy Blue Living, a plan that encouraged individuals to lead healthier lives and helped businesses have a healthier bottom line.
We developed a brand campaign that used a mnemonic of the BCN card to strengthen the identity with the Blues and emotionally connect with the audience. Using the brand standards established for the umbrella brand, we developed print, radio, outdoor and interactive materials for the Healthy Blue Living campaign. Plan membership grew from 50,000 to almost 75,000 after the campaign launch, and membership reached the 100,000 milestone in 2009. The Michigan campaign won the coveted Best of Blue Award, beating out Blues across the country.
Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC)
Michigan was seen as a one industry state: automotive manufacturing. Not a problem, but not the whole picture when the reality is that life sciences and advanced manufacturing are strong and deep in the state. We needed to inform the right minds—the decision-makers who could start or expand a business in Michigan.
A multimedia campaign targeted our C-level audiences. Our CEO spokespeople representing the state’s life sciences and advanced manufacturing companies pointed out that they could have located anywhere, but chose Michigan for the business friendly environment, workforce availability, quality of life and more. The resulting 92% increase in awareness from life sciences firms and 88% increase among advanced manufacturing companies and a significantly improved ranking as a potential business location was the result of the year-long campaign.
