How do you stand out among a crowd of 500 million daily tweets and 50 billion monthly shares of Facebook updates? It’s really tough. And, if the information you’re sharing isn’t easily digestible, you can get lost in the mix.

The flow of data is constant in the new social world. For this reason, visual messaging forms have taken on greater importance.

BrandHive recently assisted several clients interested in visual messaging approaches, including DuPont Nutrition and Health, Kyowa Hakko and GOED.

No matter how persuasive, compelling or brilliant a marketing campaign may be, it’s difficult to build a relationship with a prospect if you can’t capture their attention. Many of the traditional outreach methods utilize outdated materials or approaches, which get lost in a big flurry of messages.

BrandHive recently helped AppleActiv stand out from the crowd by introducing an extra deck of cards to the Mattel board game of “Apples to Apples”. AppleActiv was looking for a creative way to communicate with prospects about joint health and asked us for a unique spin. BrandHive worked from that point to customize a deck of cards with AppleActiv-related descriptions (i.e. Motion, Comfort, Pectin, etc.). What resulted was a unique and unforgettable touch-point for a select group of prospects.

Let’s be honest, most people will turn away when they see too many words, especially when those words are describing the results of a complex psychographic study. So when BrandHive was tasked by DuPont to highlight the results of their Healthy Living Consumer Segment Campaign, we turned those highlights into a memorable, easy-to-read infographic.

The result is a clean, quick read that delivers an important message and leaves busy readers with valuable information.
