Strategic Marketing and Fulfillment

Marketing exists to serve your business' goals. We help you establish those goals and define the measures of their success.

Tugboat marketing plans contain the strategies and creative tactics necessary to communicate with your prospects and targets, and advance your brand and business. Tugboat plans can contain channels such as guerilla/stunt, advertising, promotions, sponsorship, grassroots, PR and media relations, advertising, web and social media, direct mail and e-mail, cross-promotions. We identify opportunities, exploit the threats, and connect you with your targets.

Brand Launch

With a new brand architecture and new brand identity created, it's time to pull the trigger on the marketing plan that informs those that need to know. Short and turn-key for execution in-house, or deep and far-reaching requiring agency support, we prepare a suite of recommendations and tactics that inform audiences as quickly and efficiently as possible.


Announcement Advertising

Rebrands, mergers & acquisitions or multi-branch internal announcements, creative messaging and graphic communications must be tailored for relevance with the audience segment. One message does not fit all.

Video Supported Product Launches

Lean on short format video to provide history and backstory for deep brand and product launches, with consistent creative across brand, product and promotion. (Click the play button above to see Bruce's book launch video.)

Inbound & Promotional Landing Pages

Present the promotion and focus the message with landing pages designed to communicate. More than a one way funnel to a CTA button, strategic landing pages omit distraction and amplify focus on areas and subjects that cannot be avoided.

Experiential Marketing

Sell without selling. Brand experiences are designed to engage, not to convert. Participants may not remember your words, verbatim, but they will remember how you made them feel. Tugboat helps you to present your brand and products in new, interesting and memorable ways. We help you showcase them, celebrate them, and connect your guests with the sum of their intangible essence.

Exhibiting Experiences

When a visitor exits your trade show booth, what do you want them to feel? Think? Say? Do? This is the place we start in developing your trade show experience strategy. This is where we make sure that the brand position aligns with the experience to achieve the desired outcome.

Event Promotion

Marketing tactics and efforts for your event don't stop when the ribbon is cut. The website, newsletters, postcards, advertisements, co-op placement...all of it...comes together to fuel the event, and your next event. Always be closing.

Promotional Content

A great marketing strategy or idea is only as good as its execution. Contests can turn heads and build an audience, but only if the engagement is relevant. Endorsements, celebrity connection, and mass media broadcasts shine most brightly when pickup and organic value greatly outweigh cost. And short, targeted, social media experiences must catch attention and get shared.
