What We Do
In a world in which knowledge is the true social currency, ASC makes sure our client’s news is heard. We are strategists, communicators, designers and storytellers. We are curious. We are plugged in. And we genuinely care.
We maintain excellent relationships with significant writers, editors and on-air personalities. With our focus on luxury hospitality, soft adventure, emerging destinations, lifestyle, art and artists, and the non-profit sector, ASC moves fluidly and effectively between various industries and media. Our services support companies, identify great stories, and garner media coverage to assist our clients in reaching their audiences. Quite simply, ASC gets word out about your brand in strategic, imaginative, and effective ways.
We work with different types of media, all of which can work together in an effective campaign:
Frequently Asked Questions
I would like to customize the communications elements and media in our campaign. Is that possible?
Yes. Absolutely. We customize campaigns for each of our clients.
Will you work on a project-by-project basis?
Our answer is often yes and sometimes no. Tell us more, please. If a project is very short term it often does not make sense for the client or us. We try to stick with projects that last at least six months.
What fuels our passion and makes us get to work every morning?
We genuinely like what we do. The communications industry is changing rapidly, but at its heart it is still about communicators and audiences. The term “buzz” may be inspired by the hum of bees in their hives, but it is about the emotion, energy, excitement and anticipation generated by the products, services and motivations of individuals and organizations. In an information-rich world people and companies are constantly in transformation, creating energy that allows ideas to thrive. ASC is a distributor of fresh information and ideas through myriad channels that help create and then feed this buzz with substance and knowledge.
How important are our clients?
Client-agency relationships are at the top of the list for ASC. We get excited about the projects our clients are involved with and their transformation into successful companies, artists or non-profit organizations. Genuine enthusiasm is something we can’t fake – that’s why we occasionally have to say no to ideas or projects that come our way. The media trusts us, and we value that relationship as much as we value our clients.
What is like to work with ASC?
We are open-minded, honest and effective. Our footing in the travel and art worlds often makes for great crossover promotions and ideas. We are quick on our feet and think that the term “digital-detox” is overrated.
You are ready to share a good story? We want to hear from you.
