Connections Through Content

Through story-led, two-way content, ION helps brands CONNECT MEANINGFULLY with the hearts and minds of their audience, creating a lasting bond between brand and consumer.

ION delivers LIVE and DIGITAL brand experiences that serve as the medium through which content is both created and consumed.

By infusing appropriate and relevant technology, we AMPLIFY and enhance the content, providing consumers with a platform to SHARE it all.

Our Services

IRL branded experiences are just as impactful as they ever were, but so are our digital experiences: livestreams, virtual pop-ups, AR/VR experiences, etc. Strategically connect the two worlds, and the brand love goes through the roof!

Sales is not a bad word. Consumer and trade promotions, including incentives, sweepstakes, and contests.

Pick your partner wisely. Strategic alignments with affinity-based properties, CSR partners, B2B partners, etc. to allow for engagement with a particular audience.

Speak with authenticity and cultural competence.  By connecting brands to a cause or a community, marketing can change the world.

As a stand-alone service or as part of a larger project – video, print, digital, social, events, and so much more – we’ll strategically concept it, design it, procure it, produce it and grow with it.

Have a big story, or need one? Storytelling and video production for all platforms, including everything from long-form docu-style videos to short Instagram stories.

Here’s a hack: ask ION to help with your digital media and development needs.  We’ll ensure that your online campaigns are targeted, efficient and effective, and your interactive touchpoints are true extensions of your brand.

We’ll align with best mix of influential personalities that provide your consumers with the crucial authentic third-party validation and proof point of your brand’s awesome-ness.

With the help of our research partner Bovitz, Inc., and their proprietary consumer panel Forthright, our marketing programs are rooted in data-driven insights and appropriately measured for effectiveness.
