Leading South Florida Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations Professionals Form Pink Collective
The firm’s “business as unusual” approach to branding, web marketing, social engagement, publicity and event marketing is a new business model for today’s forward-thinking clients.
President and Creative Director Roly Rodriguez said Pink Collective was created to address the need for agencies to be more nimble in the digital era’s shifting media landscape. He said the business community is demanding greater return on investment, greater creativity and greater accountability from advertising, marketing and public relations agencies…but at more affordable rates. The firm’s clients include The Singing Machine, Baptist Health South Florida, Vertimax, Great HealthWorks, Convoy of Hope, Regimental Chess, Acebal & Fontana Architectural Firm, ATCi Communications, and Saints Home School Athletic Program.
“The real answer is for agencies to develop different business models constructed to suit clients, not agencies, and Pink Collective has done that,” he said. “Pink Collective’s ‘business as unusual’ approach eliminates inefficient middle management and bureaucratic red tape. We have short-circuited high overhead by embracing a new prototype that is more efficient and less costly for clients, and in the process, we have attracted top talent in our Collective who work for our clients on an as-needed, on-demand basis. We have replaced inconsistency with relevancy. We have embraced measurement and accountability as a critical part of how we do business.”
Pink Collective’s services and capabilities cover all aspects of marketing, from a single project to a 360-degree campaign. Capabilities include strategic planning; research; branding; graphic design; print, broadcast, direct response, online and mobile marketing; social media; publicity; and event planning.
“Key members of Pink Collective have experience representing clients and brands in nearly every industry including consumer products, technology, education, transportation, legal, financial, healthcare, real estate, entertainment, hospitality, travel/tourism, retail, government, and non-profits,”
