Do you have any nice testimonials?
We are glad you asked. Here a few that we have considered getting tattooed on ourselves.
“You nailed it!” — CEO/Management Company
“We’ve always been a big fan of your creative design and messaging.” AND “We love all the talent you bring to the creative end of the business.” — Exec VP, Corporate Communications
“Outstanding work! We were all inspired by your work product and are eager to move forward with a comprehensive marketing and branding effort.” — Representative/Developer-Owner
“We were very impressed with the initial round of content and materials presented this morning. We appreciate your perspectives, detail orientation, fresh approach to the target market, and willingness to listen. It was clear how your efforts lead to a much deeper conversation and analysis of our approach to this exciting new product. (We also) commented on how refreshing it is to work with the two of you.” — Representative/Developer-Owner
“The work you do is nothing short of amazing and I learned something new from you with each project we worked on.” — MarketingDirector/Management Company
Do you only work in senior living?
No. We've worked with senior living companies for over 17 years. But we have also worked in education (Seattle Pacific University, UW, Lakeside School), aviation (Galvin Flying, Clay Lacy Aviation), technology (Virtual iO, Salire, DataChannel, People Matter), law and financial (Graham & Dunn, Stoel Rives, Clark Nuber, Joslin Capital Advisors), real estate (Chaffey Homes, CamWest), non-profits (Lighting Design Lab), professional services (Studio Lux) and many more.
Why have I never heard of Stafford Creative?
You've never heard of us because we don't market ourselves very much. Most folks find us through word-of-mouth or by referral. Our clients often consider us their "secret weapon". So, even though you've never heard of us, you have certainly heard of our clients and the CEOs, SVPs, and marketing managers that we've worked with over the years. Our work has appeared all over North America.
What can we do for you?
Pretty much anything under the marketing sun. Our experience is vast and we've pretty much done it all when it comes to helping senior living companies succeed.
We've rebranded at the corporate level and then carried that over to a consumer-facing brand, built a brand for a new category of senior living, branded and marketed new developments from the ground up, developed HR recruiting campaigns, done internal marketing communications for employees, designed and wrote entire websites, created one-off, census-building campaigns, and more. And here's the thing, we not only help with top-level strategic branding, we can complete all of the tactical and production needs as well.
What makes you different than other senior living agencies?
A seriously different approach to creative. We've erased the preconceptions about seniors from our minds and installed some empathetic grey matter in its place (totally sci-fi!). Our funny bones help as well.
And we're a boutique agency which makes us more nimble. We can get projects done faster than you would believe if it weren't for the CEOs and SVPs that will vouch for it. Which leads to this big difference as well - we ALWAYS hit deadlines and we ALWAYS hit budget. And because we're a tight-knit group, you will be working directly with the principals, not junior account executives or designers. You'll skip the waiters and go straight to the chefs.
Have you won any awards?
A whole bunch: Stevies (American Business Awards-ABA), National Mature Media Awards (NMMA), and National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) awards.
We use a bleeping referral service. Can you help us?
We know you'd like to stop relying on that (insert bad word here) referral service. Sure, we can help you with that. In fact, we'd really, really enjoy helping you with that.
