About Us

A content marketing agency that cares who you are

Our focus on the personality of your business comes from years of experience in creating content. Generic, off-the-shelf, content does not tend to perform well. There is a reason your customers love what you do; let’s find out what that is and then show the world why you are so great at what you do. Our team knows how to uncover the hidden variables that go to formulating a powerful content marketing campaign. Our creators know how to generate content that speaks to your audience. We know how to find the spaces in the digital landscape that showcase your business in the best light. In short, we know how to make your content marketing work. Ready to meet the team?

The Impressona Digital Marketing Philosophy

When you work with a company on any large project it’s natural you’ll want to understand their approach. When we first talk to new and prospective customers we most often hear tales of woe about previous digital marketing being wasteful of budget.

“We’ve spent so much on content and can never seem to equate that to the actual value or even new clients” is a common theme.

There are many reasons why your content marketing might not be attaining the heights you’d hoped for. For this reason, our philosophy is ;

“Start from a solid foundation and build upwards”. 

Sounds fancy, but what does it mean for your business? We build all of our customers, from the smallest to the biggest, the same solid foundation of digital marketing data.

  • A brand persona toolkit – Who are you, what are you trying to say, and how will you say it?
  • A target personaWho are you trying to talk to and how do they like to be spoken to?
  • Content marketing analysisWhat does your digital estate look like, where are the gaps and how can we hit as many ‘home runs’ as possible?
  • MetricsWhat do you want to acheive and how will we measure success?

From this springboard of real data (we speak to your customers, look at your competitors and dig deep into your business analytics) we work to meet the goals you have set (if they’re not realistic, we’ll let you know). Content marketing is for leads, not for fun (but it can be both).

So when we say we have a ‘foundational approach’ that’s what we mean. It’s baked into our very philosophy.
