You could say we’re a
“personal-sized” marketing agency with
to guide each brand we represent to its destination.
Our mission is to deliver individual attention and produce superior results. We use a team-based structure when it comes to serving the needs of our clients. Account strategy, creative, interactive, media, analytics and other disciplines all work collaboratively together. So there are no silos or unnecessary levels. This structure has worked well for us, and we get positive feedback from our clients on the way we conduct our business. No matter how our craft has evolved, fortytwoeightynine believes two critically important aspects still hold true… Relationships and Longevity. Our team of people, and the way each one of us thinks, is the difference. It’s really what sets us apart from other agencies.
The core team who keeps your brand strategy in alignment:
- Rick Belinson | President & Brand Strategist
- Amanda Nyen | Account Strategist & Media Director
- Jennifer Hankins | Accounting / Production Manager
- Tony Dzik | Graphic Designer
- Tiffany Miller | Graphic Designer
- Kacey Kaderly | Web Developer & SEO / SEM
We come together every day because we love marketing, we take representing our clients’ brands seriously, and we are always imagining what could come next. We ask a lot of questions, because we want to hear (and learn from) what you say. Our best long-term partnerships have been based more on listening than just talking. But we will ask you “Why?”, to gain the insights required to understand your mission, as well as “Why Not?”, to challenge everyone involved to think differently and creatively about your situation.
Expanding upon the integrated marketing plan already in place for Sethness Roquette, we introduced a cycle of monthly campaigns focusing on “Featured Content of the Month” for either Caramel Color product-specific or food/beverage application-specific content.
This is an example of a well-known, global company with a respected brand in the coating and finishing industry who asked our agency to be responsible for the introduction of a series of new product technologies and services in North America.
The Staley Co., a supplier of aviation test equipment located in New York, reached out to our agency (due to a client referral) to help them with an update of their brand message and redesign their aging-out website.
For this global brand of automotive, marine, industrial and other special driveline technologies that we’ve worked with for over 20 years, video marketing has become more of a vital part of our overall communication strategy.
Our starting point in creating a new brand presence was for Cotta to recognize themselves as a manufacturer of high-performance engineered gearboxes used in diverse applications, and to get away from the perception of just being another industrial transmission supplier.
Our agency knows what it takes to help position and grow brands. To get results. It all begins with sound marketing strategies and creative executions based on your specific needs.
Web Developer: This can be a part-time role or flex ‘freelance’ or full-time position depending on your skills, availability and fit – website development, digital graphic design, WordPress experience (but we’re open to using other CMS), work on online marketing solutions for our clients and agency, team interaction but can function solo as well, organized to handle multitasking as we maintain/update content for core group of 20+ websites. Working remote is fine, as long as good communication and information sharing is in place, but planned onsite visits/meetings at the agency may be helpful for collaboration as we build websites and online media campaigns as part of the branding programs created for our clients.
