Here Is a Video Designed for 2 People

A friend of mine works with Beyond Pink and the National Breast Cancer Coalition. Her name is Sarah, and she is 100% in when she takes on an issue, but she surprised me with a marketing ploy few would execute.

Sarah was participating in a federal lobby day. In the past they have approached Sen. Joni Ernst more than 15 times to co-sponsor a bill called the Metastatic Breast Cancer Access to Care Act. This is not a political blog, but this is a blog for some brilliant marketing.

The ask had been mostly the same in the past, but this time, the request to co-sponsor included a video made for just two people: Ernst and Sen. Charles Grassley. After watching the video, created by Sarah and her husband, Chris, Ernst signed on after so many asks. No word yet from Grassley, but there is still hope and a great video. This is the best example of targeted marketing I’ve ever seen. We should all take notice, from fundraising campaigns to Fortune 500. This is personalization at its best.

With almost 30 years’ experience, AMPERAGE didn’t hire Mark … Mark hired AMPERAGE. He is creatively ambidextrous — son of an artist and engineer — and famous for distilling complex ideas down to a few words and a few visuals. As one of our fearless leaders (and our go-to sommelier), Mark works tirelessly to solve the complex puzzle that is “communication.” He’s written a whole book about it. If Mark were a dog, he’d be an Australian shepherd, consistently herding and providing direction to the AMPERAGE flock. Aussies also have two different colored eyes, which Mark thinks is great. Mark moves the needle by digging into research, background and persona for clients. It is from that solid foundation that he can empower clients to build large branded houses.
