Every solution we create starts with the premise that B2C marketing is over.
We live in a consumer-to-business (C2B) economy where consumers are in control of their own individual brand and marketing experiences. In this age of empowered consumers, where consumers lead and your brand must follow, the shift from a product-centric approach and brand-driven touchpoints to consumer-driven touchpoints is redefining the rules of success. Our job is to shift brand behavior to help clients thrive in this new reality.
iCrossing helps brands win by planning around people, not products. We specialize in designing people-centric media, content, and experiences. The role of a brand is to facilitate and fuel your customers’ interests, needs, passions and behaviors – which ensures that brands engage in a way that makes an emotional connection and powers business growth.
iCrossing aligns brands with the interests, needs, and passions of consumers. Simply put, we help brands engage on consumers’ terms. We believe a brand’s success lies in its ability to authentically connect to and amplify what customers are interested in - rather than disrupt.
iCrossing is unique in that we’re owned by Hearst, the global media, content and entertainment leader.
Hearst’s privately-held status enables long-term planning and independence of action. And as an agency within a media company, we have access to the most valuable ingredients for effective marketing: insights, talent, and audiences.
While we remain “buyers” and not “sellers” from a media perspective and take an independent, unbiased approach to the media landscape, there is a tremendous value that we can unlock for clients within Hearst. iCrossing adds the power of Hearst to our solutions - including our rich data, quality content, editorial expertise and category experience.
