    Launching a new company

    The leading distributor to the education marketplace needed to create a new company for their move into healthcare. We helped them transform “products” to “brand” by focusing on their mission: to improve well-being.Our Brand Platform included naming, messaging, and value propositions. After exploring hundreds of name possibilities, we recommended SOAR Life Products to capture their mission and celebrate the caregiver. The tagline affirms it: “Empower minds. Strengthen bodies. Inspire creativity.”Our 360-degree approach included all the essential brand elements – a new logo, website, marketing collateral, tradeshow booth and Brand Standards Guide.

    Team Bios:

    Pooja Vukosavich

    “What if...?” That’s the question Pooja lives and breathes 24/7. Intensely curious, she’s always pushing boundaries and exploring new directions. As much a left-brainer as a right-brainer, she founded Studio V Design after working for one of Chicago’s top award-winning design firms.

    Peter Vukosavich

    He gets a rush from information. The more, the deeper, the broader, the better. Next step? “Building buckets” – organizing, deconstructing, analyzing and prioritizing information. The outcome is uncommon insight that translates to objectives, strategy, and a clear path to powerhouse communication.

    Bryn Doherty

    Quick with humor? You bet. She uses that delightfully skewed worldview to create work with a fresh angle that breaks through the clutter and makes clients smile. She's a true creative with wide-ranging interests and knowledge, refined by her experience across many disciplines.

    Kulov

    Another day, another Kulov. He’s never the same designer twice. Elegant, funny, graphic, bold, whimsical, minimal. Endlessly surprising and always compelling.

    Anna Mihajlovic

    Digital marketing? Check. Website edits? Check. Keeping projects on track? Yup. Brainstorming ideas? The list goes on. Anna is the kind of person who jumps right in and finds solutions – sometimes even before we realize there’s a problem!

    Lynn Lilly

    Lynn can’t resist the lure of the blank page. It’s a little bit of an obsession, really. She needs to fill it up with words and ideas. From advertising to digital to public relations, she has filled up pages for clients in education, consumer goods, healthcare, technology and non-profits.

    Mindy Kolof

    Mindy knows how to get inside your head. In a good way. She soaks up all the information she can about your business, customers and culture. You’ll probably find her at your trade show or sales meeting. That means when she starts an annual report, website or newsletter, she writes like an insider.

    Yolanda Oneal

    When it comes to finances, you want an expert doing the heavy lifting. That’s Yolanda – real world bodybuilder and financial champion. She puts her MBA brain and muscled brawn to work by managing our bookkeeping.

    Anant Chander

    Anant brings the world to everything he does. Yes, he’s worked in Singapore, India, London, Malaysia and the U.S. He’s a citizen of many disciplines: photography, videography, content development, web and social media analytics, with side trips into app development and research.

    ABOUT THE PROJECT


    • Web Design / Development

    • Local SEO

    • Branding


    When we partnered with Granite Selection, formerly known as paylessforgranite.com, we wanted to shed that identity and become known as the company with the largest selection of stones, highest quality of customer service, most advanced technologies, fast and professional installations AND competitive pricing. Located in Elk Grove Village, IL, Granite Selection specializes in the distribution, design, fabrication and installation of custom natural stone countertops, vanities, shower walls and more. By partnering with us, they were able to change their corporate image from lowest price to affordable luxury.
    PROJECT GOALS

    • Establishing a new brand

    • Making the site mobile responsive

    • Creating interactive tools like a custom 30-second Quick Quote calculator, kitchen visualizer tool, and stone selector

    • We also established a helpful blog with design ideas, care tips, and guidance for finding the right stone type for you

    • Created “Recent Projects” section


    MARKETING RESULTS
    For SEO, we established over 100 backlinks within industry-specific platforms, blogs, and directories.
    We created a sophisticated SEO architecture with cross-linking.
    Through our work with PPC we improved the conversion rate by 122% (while overall conversion rate was at 165%)

    Pathway Vet Alliance Branding

    THE CHALLENGE
    Pathway needed to differentiate itself and attract new veterinary partners. As a growing company, it required a full branding exercise to establish vocal and visual consistency and a brand strategy that reflects its business strategy.
    THE SOLUTION
    A new name for the company, a visual brief and a manifesto video showcasing the company as change agents for good.
    From there, we created a brand voice, design system, go-to-market materials, a launch activation and internal communications with a townhall launch.
    THE RESULTS


    • Over 140 clinics added to U.S. operations since 2017

    • Resume submissions have grown 5x in 6 months

    • Inc. Magazine just ranked Pathway Vet Alliance as one of the fastest growing private companies

    • 35% growth in website traffic

    • 450% revenue growth in under three years

    Innovative Express Care

    ChallengeWhen we began working with them, Innovative Express Care was just breaking into the urgent care space in Chicago. As a relatively new player, they needed to build a presence in a crowded and competitive Urgent Care industry in a meaningful (and profitable) way.
    SolutionTransform the perception of the Urgent Care patient visit from a transaction to a relationship.
    We first dug into the patient segmentation to understand the different types of patients who seek urgent care in Chicago. We interviewed stakeholders and patients at IEC to test our initial hypotheses, and then surveyed patients in order to reinforce our findings.
    Having a deeper understanding of our target audience, we created positioning and pillars around the core value proposition “Healthcare Evolved.”
    We then developed a digital and above-the-line campaign which included traditional channels such as print, mailers, OOH, and broadcast, as well as digital channels to reach different audience segments.ResultsThe results showed an overwhelmingly positive audience response. Our client experienced a 600% increase in revenue over the first two years of the campaign.
    This provided the jumpstart to the business that Innovative Express Care needed - they are now well positioned for the future as they expand their practice and services, such as offering Concierge and Primary Care.

    Launching a revolutionary new consumer electronics / athlete performance product

    Cercacor is an innovator of non-invasive, portable consumer monitoring technologies. Its début product is Ember – the world’s first non-invasive hemoglobin tracker for endurance athletes and coaches. Its sister company, Masimo, is a publicly traded, global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies.
    PROBLEM
    When Cercacor came to SCM, it was completely unknown; didn’t have any connections or previous experience with the triathlon, endurance sports or coaching communities; and had no experience with media, special events or sales. Most target audiences didn’t understand the value of regular hemoglobin monitoring. And, the product costs $400 or $700, depending on the model (and now requires users to pay $1 per hemoglobin-based test after the first 200).
    SOLUTION / ACTIVITIES
    Working with Cercacor’s VP of marketing, SCM developed and executed a detailed, fluid strategy to identify, educate and work with key influencers and potential partners; build foundational marketing and public relations materials / tools; identify and work closely with elite endurance athletes and coaches to test Ember and share their stories; and gain positive media attention.http://www.shermancm.com/portfolio/the-island/
