Awareness to Sales

The Mechanics of a Sales Funnel

Creating and leveraging a sales funnel is about sorting to optimize messaging based on where a customer is within the sales process. Awareness The first step is to get eyes on the message. Paid media is great for getting eyes on the message, but building awareness also can be achieved through PR, social media and partnerships. After we are confident that we will get eyes on our message, we shift focus to sorting those eyes to improve the likelihood that they will convert. Once a lead enters the sales funnel by submitting a form, completing a survey, engaging with a social media poll, clicking... Read More

AcrobatAnt celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. What have we learned? Well, the five Ants who have been here since the beginning—owners Angela Harless, Diane Davis, Danny Sadler and David Downing, and Associate Creative Director Bryan Cooper—have learned a few things, among them: Hard work, in the vast majority of cases, supersedes great talent.

Time flies. If you want a little context to go with the... Read More

Thank goodness for the BOK Center. Without it, Tulsa would not be attracting the world’s biggest entertainers. But we have a personal reason for appreciating the BOK—it has given our design team the opportunity to really flex its creative muscles. We’re proud of all the BOK Center work we’ve done, including the concessions, trade publication ads and our legendary Garth staircase. And we’ve discovered that great work for a great client doesn’t go unnoticed. The BOK Center team loves to see what we can do with an empty space or a blank wall, and we rose to the occasion again...

Using Mad Libs for Better Product Positioning

One consistent challenge for many companies is that the people who develop a new product, service or brand lose often sight of WHY it was created. Before developing marketing strategy and messaging, it is crucial to understand the benefit that the product is providing for a specific audience, and how your organization delivers this benefit uniquely, a.k.a. the value proposition. Even if your organization’s leadership agrees on mission, vision and values, it is possible that you will find a wide spectrum of opinions when you begin to discuss the value proposition. In your next leadership meeting, identify a product or... Read More

Wintrust Arena Tattoo Ad

Our new client, Chicago’s Wintrust Arena, gave us this challenge: Create a jaw-dropping, out-of-the-box ad to announce the opening of its brand new, state-of-the-art, 10,000-seat multipurpose facility. The client had a basic suggestion—an edgy, tattoo-themed look—but wasn’t sure how to execute it. We figured out a way that not only made the client ecstatic but also resulted in high praise from a Billboard magazine representative. Another result: More out-of-the-box Wintrust Arena work for us, including prominent displays at bus and subway stops around Chicago. ## AcrobatAnt Marketing & Advertising AcrobatAnt.com 1336 East 15th Street Tulsa, OK 74120 918-938-7901

Make Direct Mail Cool Again

Even in the digital age, it’s not a bad idea to get back to our roots with a direct mail campaign. Direct mail provides an opportunity for visual and tactile creativity that no digital advertising can provide, since a mailer is a physical item that people can interact with.One of the main goals of direct mail is to make the recipient interact with the mailer for more than just a few seconds. That said, your direct mail must not only look cool, but have a strategic goal behind it—like any other advertising venture, it’s unwise to get wrapped up in... Read More
