ApproachIn business, you are Predator or Prey
Predatory Thinking starts with a market truth: if you want people to do something, they have to stop doing something else. Whether it is people’s time, their attention, or their money you want, if you want more, someone or something else is going to get less.
Put another way, if you aren’t 100% focused on winning your share, someone else will steal it from you.
In today’s business environment, never has it been truer that you are either predator or prey.
Predatory Thinking delivers clarity Predatory Thinking is at the heart of all we do. Because it works. Because it helps us look at business problems with incisive clarity.
By identifying who or what will lose out – your prey – and what you have in your armoury to beat them, we unearth the right Predatory Thought for your business: the idea that will drive the change in behaviour that will help you achieve your objective.
Two things distinguish successful Predatory Thinkers. First, they put themselves at an unfair advantage by choosing their own territory and rules of engagement. Second, they align all their tools and talents to focus on their purpose.
In this way they outmanoeuvre and outwit their competition, change behaviour and put their businesses on a clear and visionary path to success. And when companies, people and brands have a clear purpose that inspires and engages them, then, rather than look backwards, or inwards, they move forward fuelled with passion and energy. They develop exciting, positive and real business momentum.
LA|Advertising has more: we offer all the perspectives needed to solve business problems, from our business strategy consultancy to our strategic and creative communications expertise to our media business. We use all these talents simultaneously to identify business problems and generate ideas. We look at problems and ideas from all the angles at once. By getting all the disciplines round the table right from the start of a project, we can look at being predatory not just in what you say, but in what you do, how you communicate, and where.
It is this multi-dimensional approach that unleashes Predatory Thinking to create ideas that truly come alive in your communications to drive genuine business success.
It starts with a question
Problem & ResearchYour question – how do we intelligently involve our audience? How do we encourage engagement? How do we capitalize on new, emerging media? Then, we grab hold of it, shake it loose, and unveil the underlying questions – the ones with answers to drive a strategy that tailors the talk to your needs, identity, and audience. Whatever you’ve got, we craft the answer that best fits you.
Strategy & CreativeOur research reveals important insights that mold the unique strategy to satisfy your goals. We dig deep to compile the data and direction that will derive the best results. Once we’ve got the angle, our creative team conjures up a concept.
a new invention
campaign design, development & productionThen that concept sprouts legs – really good-looking, far-reaching legs. Our dynamic designs and captivating content are spun into any direction to attract your audience. Because we develop our designs in-house, we can continuously push the envelope with new, innovative creations. We love turning creative dreams into a reality.
to spark a continuous conversation.
multiple executions, integrated interaction channelsOnce we start a conversation, there is no goodbye. We keep your consumers coming back for more, by keeping them interested and engaged – nurturing campaigns from start to finish to ensure the biggest possible impact. We call it “keeping eye-contact.”
about usLike many modern marketing companies, L&A evolved from a traditional ad agency. We were raised doing print and television ads for clients: Single-page ad or spread? 30- or 60-second commercial? But the the world has changed. The media landscape has exploded, leaving marketers with infinitely more media choices. Some agencies resist the change, but we've fallen in love. For us, change simply means that now we have more ways to reach very specific audiences in very specific places, making our marketing efforts that much more efficient. </br> Philosophy + Culture Our philosophy is to make great work, have fun and make money. Always in that order. We think we are different. The way we accommodate and are flexible to actually partner with clients. We don’t want just project work, we want the relationship, Small agency approach with big agency experience. We act to slaying sacred cows i.e those ingrained behaviours and attitudes in every category that people continue to use because “they’ve always been done that way”.
Who we areOur goal is simple: To provide A-plus creative and A-plus strategic solutions that drive success for your business.
Our VisionOur main vision is We MUST do the things we think we cannot do.
