    7 Ways For Small Businesses To Use Snapchat

    Snap, share, gone! Snapchat is social, temporary and fresh. It’s a social media platform where users share pictures and videos, but the images and videos have a time limit.

    Psychographics: Looking Deeper

    It’s the difference between knowing what people could do versus what they should do. You probably shouldn’t binge for 3 more hours on Netflix before going to bed, but if you’re between the ages of 18-34, chances are you will.  Netflix knows this and releases entire seasons of hit shows accordingly.  How can they tell?   […]

    Crowdsourcing and the Trap of Boaty McBoatface

RAZORBRANDING

LEARN MORE


At RUSSO, our philosophy is directly related to our process, which we call Razor Branding™. Razor Branding develops brands from the inside out, establishing a series of branded touchpoints that form emotional connections with the consumer. Developing these connections relies heavily on understanding the psychographics of consumer behavior, and not just demographic profiles that rarely tell the whole story.

Understanding perceptions, attitudes, beliefs, and the lifestyles of our clients’ consumers better position us to develop messaging that motivates individuals and best meets their needs – regardless of industry, size, location, or category.

RAZOR BRANDING™: OUR PROCESS

Razor Branding works towards three primary goals at all times: Focus, Connection, and Harmony.

FOCUS- We identify your audience.  Then we use psychological profiling to discover what they think and how they feel. We get to know them personally — right down to what motivates them.

CONNECTION- We learn what resonates with your audience. Then we use your most unique qualities to bridge their wants with what you deliver.

HARMONY- We create a system of branded touchpoints for circulating your message through the right channels.
