LDWWgroup


GENERAL: Founded in 2012, LDWWgroup is a nationally recognized, full-service integrated communications agency based in Dallas. One of the top 100 independent PR firms in the US, we were recently named a finalist for "New Agency of the Year" by the Holmes Report, a leading global communications industry news source. CAPABILITIES: LDWWgroup provides a complete suite of services rivaling that of some of the country’s largest communications firms. Yet our smaller size and partner-based business model means clients get premium service and senior-level experience at an exceptional value. While we offer a broad range of communications services, our specialties include: brand marketing; corporation reputation management; crisis communications; sports marketing; and internal communications. EXPERTISE: LDWWgroup is a champion of challenger brands, little-known causes and misunderstood categories. Yet, we know that even the world’s largest and most profitable companies can benefit from challenger-brand thinking. Regardless of our clients’ market positions or industries, we have mastered the ability to disrupt the status quo, attack the market from many different angles and effectively help our clients to protect and win market share. PHILOSOPHY: LDWWgroup believes if we serve our clients well, our own success will follow. Our agency has been, quite literally, built on repeat business and client referrals. Almost 80% of our clients have prior working relationships with an LDWWgroup staffer and/or have been referred by a previous or existing client. That is because we adhere to the following client service principles: We set specific, measurable goals for each assignment that tie directly to our clients' business objectives. We develop programs as creative as they are effective, bringing together imagination, insight, fresh thinking and boundless creativity. We pay meticulous attention to details and deliver results that matter, on-time and on-budget...every time. We are available when and where our clients need us, doing whatever necessary to help
