Intimatologist

An intimatologist is a designer who studies marketing, specifically intimate marketing and the audience’s relationship to a brand, product or service. Generally speaking, intimatologists study humans, media channels and designs to gain a better understanding of how an audience reacts to various forms of marketing and how external factors influence consumer relationships and behavior.

Our Process

Good marketing is equal parts art and science. Marketing is the DNA of every aspect of a business and makes your products, communications and innovations your unique story.  Telling that story in a compelling way, that is art.  Evaluating the needs and desires of your business and determining a strategy to meet those needs is science.  Envisioning the future and making your business goals actionable, is the science of Intimate Marketing.

We perform a three phase process which sets up our clients for success.  Starting with the Foundation Phase we get to know our clients, their offerings, customers, competition and history.  Upon that foundation of knowledge, we build or rebuild the brand.  During the Core Phase, we provide content, deploy resources, manage campaigns and establish protocols.  The Replenishment Phase focuses on perpetually evolving the brand, staying relevant and creating continued growth into the future.

Foundation

FOUNDATION

In the first phase, we conduct interviews, investigate workflows and perform an evaluation of the product offering. We also research the competitive landscape and the target audience, uncovering challenges and opportunities. In addition to providing market analysis, marketing strategies and a cost assessment, we use this information to develop the brand message and voice.

Core

CORE

Here we create the deliverables. We design and build websites, packaging, sales collateral or other materials, addressing and managing workflow issues, policies and product lifecycles.
Photography is scheduled, coordinated and performed, product names, categories and descriptions are assigned. Digital marketing campaigns are planned and deployed and we begin to leverage advertising and social data.

Replenishment

REPLENISHMENT

Once we dial in the brand identity and marketing, we work with our clients to create ongoing campaigns and strategies that promote continued growth. Customized programs, style guides, templates and procedures are provided to help maintain momentum, allow for and recognize changing markets. Marketing strategies are re-evaluated and adapted based on long term goals.
