Message Development + Testing

Your product is only as powerful as the message you craft.

It’s no secret that the right messaging strategy is a critical step for any marketing campaign. Even the most perfect product can flop if it isn’t promoted effectively, or doesn’t align with your core brand values. At Kelton, we create and rigorously test messages for a wide-range of communications purposes – from product launches to ad campaign themes. Testing your messaging before it goes live helps you to better understand your audience’s needs, values and aspirations, and ensures that what you plan to say will resonate with the people you’re trying to reach. We help you pinpoint what to say, how to say it, and to whom so you can move forward with confidence.

Carving Out Space in the Ad Crowd


In order to stand out from the crowd and resonate with key audiences, brands need to create content that stands out in an extremely cluttered print and digital ad space (not to mention gets consumers to stop pressing fast-forward on their TVs). Some noteworthy companies are cutting through the chaos by creating smart ties to pop culture, making memorable and surprising statements, or highlighting real consumers.
