We believe that to generate Influence we must first generate Interest
and to do both we must generate Intelligence.

Generating Interest

Generating Interest

The first objective in any communications and engagement activity is to stimulate and build interest in your audience. Without an interested audience everything else you do is simply a waste of time and resource!


Key elements in generating Interest are understanding your target audience; good design and creative branding; relevant messaging with well written copy; entertaining and informative content that adds genuine value to the reader, and enduring programmes that facilitate and encourage engagement. 

Generating Influence

Generating Influence

At the heart of all communications and engagement, for whatever purpose, is the wish to influence the target audience in some manner; whether to buy our product or service or take a particular point of view or even to influence others on our behalf.


To generate influence you need to bring something valued to the situation; this can be; interesting and useful content; a 'brand' to be associated with; an identifiable and reachable network or audience; or of course great products or services.

Generating Intelligence

Generating Intelligence

Intelligence is an invaluable function of marketing and information operations. However, although many will acknowledge that 'market research' has a role, it is rarely a priority. Good storytellers will always strive to gain insights and understanding of their audiences before they begin.


In the digital age, there is an abundance of 'open source' or freely available intelligence and analytics. Some intelligence is packaged up nicely in the platform analytics, other insights need to be gathered and synthesised from incidental data sources.
