A wide range of
branding information

Core Strength Marketing is a full service brand strategy and marketing consulting firm focusing on strategic positioning, branding, integrated marketing communication campaigns and internal brand alignment. Often our clients are business to business companies that are product, technology and sales driven who seek brand and marketing expertise to complement their internal strengths.  Our fundamental beliefs are that brand strategy is a company’s core concept that stems from its business strategy.That marketing strategy is an extension of the  brand strategy and that when planned well, all dots connect seamlessly and efficiently.

We work with clients to define the brand promise they can consistently deliver and own. That their competitors either can’t own or more likely than not can but don’t. And that their prospects and customers will value. We have found time and again that a relatively small investment in brand and positioning strategy upfront makes all subsequent marketing more effective and ultimately saves both time and money in the development of new or revised marketing materials.

We strive to maintain a work environment where everyone has the opportunity to apply and develop skills and talents consistent with our values and business objectives.
