Latest trends: People are spending time with our brands. More time means more bonding and ultimately greater loyalty to the brand. Our client successes reveal that engagement is up. The numbers are strong for JWT and our clients in this murky market. That’s testament to 145 years of experience and a bounty of forward-thinking creativity.
In 2009, we unified RMG Connect and JWT as one seamlessly-integrated offering under a single P&L. This allowed us to unify our core disciplines, leadership and talent to best leverage our strengths in continuing and deepening dialogue with consumers, while focusing on core services central to maximizing time spent with our brands.
JWT gives its clients an end-to-end offering spanning brand strategy and positioning, award-winning creative excellence, relationship marketing, media-engagement planning, deep digital and interactive prowess, all built on a robust performance-driven, data and analytics platform providing insight and marketing mix modeling, activation, optimization and ROI metrics.
We believe the future is about unified communications and thus, in order to be a market- leading company, digital and activation must be at the center of our offering.
From this unification, we now have best-practice thinking leveraged across the network under one name and operating structure. This includes CRM, Data Analytics, Digital, Activation and Advertising in various combinations.
