Acclaim is different, and so are you. Let us tell the world why.

Every organization has a compelling story to tell. It’s what draws people to your brand and makes it different. It’s why customers care and employees thrive.

A Professional Approach to Marketing and Public Relations

In a time when entry-level freelancers and offshore workers try to change the marketing model, Acclaim maintains some of the most talented and experienced professionals in the Cleveland marketing industry, while maintaining a fully integrated approach at highly competitive rates.

Monthly retainers include access to a highly experienced account manager and a full suite of marketing services without surprise up-charges. Fees are affordable, transparent and mutually agreed upon before work begins. When choosing a marketing agency, take time to understand the true ROI.

What We Do

With each new client, Acclaim begins with a four-step process to maximize sales and other organizational objectives

1) Creating Audience Personas
Simply identifying target audiences isn’t enough. Marketers needs to get inside their heads and pinpoint triggers that lead people to buy. Acclaim walks clients through a process that details customer habits and why they buy.

2) Mapping the Customer Journey
Acclaim maps the process from when a stranger becomes a lead, a lead becomes a prospect and a prospect becomes a customer. Knowing each step of the sales cycle allows you to optimize marketing focus.

3) Message Development
Every organization has a story to tell. Acclaim walks clients through a facilitated process that gets to the heart of your story to create a unique value proposition that builds brands and differentiates you from the competition.

4) Building a Marketing Plan
Marketing is useless without a detailed plan that measures results. Once we identify customers and have mapped their buying journey, Acclaim takes a client’s value proposition to customize a 12- to 18-month marketing plan that supports sales and other strategic objectives.

Ongoing Campaigns
This four-step startup process often takes less than 30 days. It sets the foundation for campaigns that include:

Content marketing, website development, video production, search-engine optimization (SEO), email marketing, social media, marketing automation, online and digital advertising, traditional advertising, video production, media relations and client communications.

We then track user engagement through analytics, search engine rankings, open rates, click-through rates and ultimately, sales conversions.

No two approaches are alike, and marketing goals vary among clients. Our work often extends to strategic planning, sales strategies, community outreach, organizational structures and business consulting.

And in the spirit of true public relations, Acclaim helps organizations better engage with Cleveland’s community through introductions, networking and partnerships that reach entirely new audiences.
