Sturges-Young Center for the Arts

Strategy, Branding, Web Design

 

 

Focal Point was thrilled to have the opportunity to create a Strategic Marketing Plan for the Sturges-Young Center for the Arts. Our goal was to develop a clear brand image, logo and positioning statement that would communicate to the community and region that SYCA puts emphasis on bringing people together through the celebration of shared experiences. In addition, Focal Point wanted to identify specific strategies and marketing avenues that could be used in order to promote the center’s mission and programs.

 

Through research, data collection, stakeholder interviews, focus groups and other techniques, we began creating an effective blueprint for success. We were able to analyze target markets and understand how they receive messages so that when our marketing plan is executed it will reach those who would be most interested in the Sturges-Young Center for the Arts.

 

We then crafted a robust campaign that included multiple strategies such as digital marketing, print media and social media to ensure maximum reach. We also created a comprehensive brand guide that outlined all aspects of SYCA’s branding including logo use, brand messaging, web design and design guidelines. Finally, we authored a positioning statement that succinctly communicated the mission and values of SYCA.

 

Focal Point is excited to see how their efforts will help position the Sturges-Young Center for the Arts as an integral part of their community and make a lasting impact on its residents. The Strategic Marketing Plan is in the process of being executed with success and Focal Point is confident it will continue to provide results for SYCA in the future.

 

The team at Focal Point is proud to have contributed to the success of Sturges-Young Center for the Arts and looks forward to continuing their relationship with this important community initiative. With the implementation of our Strategic Marketing Plan the impact that SYCA will have on its local area and beyond will be greatly increased. We are confident that our efforts will pay off and help make a meaningful difference in many lives.

Andretti Autosport

VIDEO MARKETING

Focal Point worked with Andretti Autosport to share the story relationship between the Andretti team and Dickinson Fleet Services.  The focus was on the importance of having a valued team taking care of the transport fleet and how this relationship contributed to the success of both teams.

 

At Dickinson Fleet, we understand that the Andretti team needs to get its racing cars turned around quickly. One failure in one of the trucks or one of the trailers, and it could really hurt things – big time. There are certain things that have to be at the race track on time for their team. That’s why keeping their trucks on a regular regular maintenance schedule is critical. If the trucks are late, then things start backing up. It’s a snowball effect. It can create chaos. Our goal is to prevent these situations by having as much foresight as possible.

FOCUS ON SAFETY

Safety is a BIG DEAL for the Andretti team. As Michael Andretti mentions, comparing the cars that his dad drove, to the cars that he drove, to the cars they’re racing today – it’s amazing how far things have progressed. Technology in the mobile maintenance and repair field is much the same way. That’s why we’re committed to staying up to date with the latest trends and offering our customers things like our mobile app that make requesting/monitor service just a few clicks away.

A TRUE PARTNERSHIP

 

As the Andretti team mentions, we see our relationship as a TRUE PARTNERSHIP. We love having clients who feel like they can trust us and understand our commitment to providing the highest standard of service out there. As mentioned in the video, this partnership worked out particularly well because the Andretti race shop is just down the road from one of our location which has turned out to be absolutely amazing. As it turned out, it was a no brainer to be able to work with them.
It truly has been a great partnership since day one. With the Andretti team having 14 trucks on the road, giving them ONE contact and ONE phone number for all maintenance needs has been a different maker. We truly appreciate that they say it feels great knowing that they’re getting the best service out there in the industry. If they have a problem, our goal is to always get on it as soon as possible and fixed right away.

Since Dickinson has come on board, the Andretti team has had 2 Indy 500 wins. As Michael mentions, everything counts and it all plays a roll into their success. When these races are going on, it’s everything coming together. It’s not just one thing.
Much like the awesome folks at Andretti Autosport, we hope they’ll be a part of our family for a long time to come.  In fact, we were honored to recently extend our multi-year partnership with this incredible company.
