It could be a camera, phone or car – or it could be a million-dollar business software solution. Whatever the purchase, the way we consider buying it has changed forever. At PJA, we’re focused on understanding why we all buy the way we do now – and how to make our clients' marketing budgets work harder to meet the expectations of engaged buyers.

Neat

Branded Direct Response TV

Receipts. Business cards. Invoices. Contracts. It’s information overload. And Neat knows how to keep it from getting in the way. By separating what’s key from what’s clutter, Neat makes your paperwork work for you. PJA created a direct response program to help buyers visualize the benefits of the product and help move them closer to purchase.

Corning

Falcon

Corning® Life Sciences wanted a way to keep their Falcon® brand labware’s quality and dependability top of mind with scientists. We came up with an idea that’d definitely be the first thing engaged buyers think of as they navigated through the buying journey — setting a real falcon loose in a lab.
What could go wrong?

Brother

No More Compromises

For years, we’ve helped Brother show consumers and small business owners that they can get all of the features they need out of a single printer — high speeds, low costs, and 11x17 printing — without having to knock down a wall to make space for it. Fully integrated campaigns, including national and direct response TV spots, display advertising, print, and POP demonstrate the true value of Brother’s printing solutions in ways that capture attention and help move engaged buyers through the consideration process.

Make-A-Wish

Straight Talk Wireless’s Give a Minute, Help Make-A-Wish program is simple. Take a one-minute demo to learn about the brand, and they’ll donate $1 to Make-a-Wish – up to $1,000,000. That can grant a lot of wishes. Straight Talk asked us to tell the story of some of them being granted. Want to give your day a lift? Take a look.

Veracode

Monster

Even with the impressive title, Chief Information Security Officers have little control over the apps that go out the door. Worse, they’re more accountable than anyone in the event of a security breach.
And despite the tornado of application projects, the rising sea of code, the gauntlet of threats and the never-ending resource limitations, they are left to fend for themselves. Until now.

Endicia

Good for business

Endicia provides online shipping solutions to e-commerce companies of all sizes. They operate in a highly competitive space and were looking for a way to increase their profile. At the same time, they have aggressive acquisition goals, so generating leads was also a priority. To meet this dual challenge PJA developed a multi-phase digital campaign that incorporated in-depth media planning, content strategy, and a strong creative platform that spoke directly to the priorities of Endicia’s target audience.

Agilysys

Campaign

Agilysys, a leading provider in Property Management Systems for the hospitality industry, tasked us with launching rGuest, their first entirely new PMS product in years. We discovered that the conference attended by all their potential clients was being held just a few miles south of Hollywood. In a crowded field of parity products, we needed to speak to buyers on both rational and emotional levels if we wanted them to build a sense of confidence in the product. So we gave them something big. Hollywood big.

Cambridge Trust Company

Consumer Brand Awareness

Certain financial transactions are easy. But then life comes up — your kids leave for college, the trip of a lifetime comes up, you plan for your retirement — and you need help, have a question, or want advice. That’s where Cambridge Trust Company comes in. With personalized service and advanced products designed to make your life easier. A series of mini stories was created to highlight this commitment and introduce people to a different kind of bank — Life’s Bank.

Bio-Rad

New Product Pre-Launch

Preparative chromatography. Ever hear of it? You're not alone. It's a complex, but essential part of the scientific research process. So how do you introduce a new product (that does not yet exist) to an extremely targeted audience in a category that is dominated by a behemoth? You empower scientists to demand something better. And prove to them that you're it.

Companies everywhere are looking for ways to improve efficiencies and cut costs. One of the easiest places to start is often the most quickly overlooked: the way paper documents are managed and stored.

The opportunities for marketing with rich media are huge. But many marketers simply aren't aware of what they're capable of doing with video, interactivity and analytics.

buying isn't what it used to be

Buyers are complicated. The channels and devices they care about are changing rapidly and the content it takes to fill them is multiplying exponentially. Our mission is to help buyers make great decisions throughout the considered buying process — and to make sure more of them are choosing your brand.

Market to humans

Whether you address B2B or B2C audiences, engaged buyers are people who make buying decisions rationally and emotionally. Our mission is to know your buyer best, so we know what channels, content and experiences will help drive their consideration and decisions. Go human

Truth over imitation

Creative and media that toe the category line are just ads for your competitors. Standing out means skirting conventional wisdom, and tapping the hidden truths that actually move your buyer. View a truth

Phil Johnson

Phil Johnson

CEO

Phil wants to make PJA Advertising + Marketing great. That leads him to ask a lot of questions. How can we find and develop people so that we're better than we were yesterday? How can we make our agency a valuable destination for our clients? How can we improve on what agencies do?

He sees the ultimate role of agency CEO as a never-ending quest for undiscovered talent. He is a firm believer in hiring better and smarter than himself and is often in awe of the people at PJA. He's fascinated by the technologies that are changing the art and science of marketing, but still believes most answers can be found in understanding what makes people tick. He's relentlessly curious, and spends time writing for AdAge and running a speaker series for the Business Marketing Association of New York. He's frequently overbooked serving on the boards of the Boston Museum of Science, Partners in Health, and the Cambridge Community Foundation. He lives in Cambridge with his wife and two sons, although he needs to be reminded that one son is actually away at college.

Mike O'Toole

Mike O'Toole

President and Partner

I feel privileged to live in these most interesting of times for marketing. While the ends haven't changed at all (make me famous, help me sell), all the means (channels, content, devices, who's in control) are changing constantly. Which means it's a great time to be an agency helping clients figure all this out.

As President, I oversee operations on both coasts, and advise clients on marketing strategy. I'm an occasional speaker and blogger for MarketingProfs, the BMA, and at SXSW. I thoroughly enjoy hosting PJA Radio's "The Unconventionals," a podcast focusing on inspirational and counter-intuitive business stories that are the stuff of ingenuity, leading to innovation, change, and outsized results.

When it comes to PJA, I'm most proud of the agency's culture, and its collection of people who genuinely like each other, and work exceedingly hard to get clients the credit they deserve.

When it comes to home, I spend my free time coaching soccer, driving around my four kids, and hoping for a Notre Dame football return to glory. Ask me about my family's deep dive into the analog world, the Summer of 72 books.

In addition to providing creative leadership and direction across all client accounts, Aaron's role is to push the agency to create new experiences that disrupt category conventions and influence audience behavior. His trademarks include his booming laugh, impeccable haircut, and, more recently, white sneakers—which frankly, just isn't normal.

Robert Davis

Robert Davis

EVP, Strategy

I love working in an era that I see as defined by an interesting paradox: on the one hand, we have the bandwidth and development chops to rapidly create all kinds of digital content and functionality-from sites and social media content to QR codes, cheap video, mobile apps, and on and on. On the other hand, the relative ease with which we can make these things should be the thing that frees us to almost forget about the technology and to think very freely about how brands can behave-in the context of peoples lives-so that we can remove friction from the things they want to get done. So we can identify and suggest connections between things they didn't know to connect, or so we can be engaging enough to compete for their scarce attention or even their affection.

It's this idea of finding ways to enable brand behavior that makes me think this is a great time to be a marketer.

Oh, yeah- the details: The list includes Think New Ideas, Ingalls, Chiat/Day, Lintas. Started out as a creative, jumped to strategy and am vain enough to say that's what makes creatives love me. American Express, AOL, AT&T, Capital One, CVS/pharmacy, Dell, EMC, GE, IBM, Infor, Mars, SAP, TE Connectivity. Green vehicles, heirloom tomatoes, assorted pets, my wife and two boys—all in reverse order.

Janet Carlisle

If you’re looking for someone who can think on her feet, articulate any marketing situation in human terms, or just make you laugh, few compare. Janet began her career over 20 years ago in New York working on consumer brands such as General Mills, Fisher-Price, Perrier, and Gillette. Since that time she's worked at agencies big and small, honing her skills in marketing strategy to deliver results-oriented programs domestically and globally. Most recently, she’s been serving as our trusted advisor to the brand leaders to clients such as Infor, GE Healthcare, Limelight, Iron Mountain, Brother Printers, and TE Connectivity.

When she's not running the client service department or tweeting like a rock star, she keeps us all honest and makes sure we're having a blast while we're at it.

30-Day TV Detox

May 21, 2015 by Molly Woods

The background:
I’d guestimate that I watch about 150 hours of TV in a 30-day span, which is a sad but true number. Combining the realization of just how much of a time suck that is with a dare from a coworker, the challenge of going a month without TV was born.

The Neat Company Selects Marketing Agency, PJA, with Sights Set on Small Businesses

The Neat Company Selects Marketing Agency, PJA, with Sights Set on Small Businesses

December 8, 2014, Philadelphia, PA

Neat, the leader in Smart Organization Systems for small businesses and home offices, plans to refocus on their small business customers and has hired PJA to provide the resources necessary for Neat to reach this audience. PJA, a full-service marketing and advertising agency with offices in San Francisco, CA, and Cambridge, MA, has a proven track record of developing unique, integrated campaigns for clients to reach B2B customers.

“We went through an extensive search to find the right agency for our needs and PJA had the right mix of B2B marketing experience and success, strong team, and understanding of our business and target audience,” said Evan Kramer, Neat’s chief marketing officer. “We enable small businesses to simplify workflows and save time so they can “Get To What Matters” and PJA understands how to effectively communicate and execute that message.”

As Neat continues its charge to be an essential tool for small business owners, they recognize the need to appeal to various small business segments ranging from realtors to accountants and lawyers to contractors. PJA’s experience in creating successful strategies marketed toward these very groups gives The Neat Company a practical and exciting opportunity to collaborate with an innovative, industry-leading agency.

Getting to what matters has always been at the forefront of Neat’s mission to keep homes and offices organized, but now The Neat Company is shifting its focus to the small business, while remaining an integral part of their existing customers’ lives.  With PJA’s support, The Neat Company will continue to demonstrate the twofold definition of its core message: saving time and using technology to get back to what is important. A reallocation of attention on specific use cases of Neat’s Smart Organization System in the worlds of contracting, accounting, real estate and other relevant small businesses, will exemplify The Neat Company’s commitment to the small business market.  

“We’re really excited to be working with Neat,” said Mike O’Toole, PJA’s President. “It starts with Neat’s market potential—their products solve a huge problem for small businesses, who are struggling to find ways to organize their information. We also like the alignment between our organizations. Our compensation is tied to the return on marketing we deliver. We’re incented to find the best mix of accountable media, which will include programmatic digital, DRTV and other strategies to drive the best results.”

The Neat Company’s value to small business owners in diverse industries is robust and as they continue to introduce new integrations with small business applications and tools, such as QuickBooks Online, the business’ need for Neat’s Smart Organization System will only rise. With PJA’s proven experience in all channels of marketing, The Neat Company is confident that together, they will reach the small business owners and entrepreneurs who will benefit from Neat’s Smart Organization System and who need to get to what matters.

PJA Advertising + Marketing Unveils Latest Interactive Ad Campaign Creative for Limelight Networks

July 6, 2011, Boston, MA

PJA Advertising + Marketing (PJA) today announced the launch of the newest interactive ad campaign for Limelight Networks (NASDAQ: LLNW, "Limelight"). The creative, targeted at senior marketing professionals and creative and media agency teams, are currently running on trade sites including eMarketer.com, MarketingProfs.com and Mashable.com.

"We developed our interactive ad campaign to deliver a strong message to advertisers about the importance of using the most effective technologies to target the most relevant audiences at the right times and in the right places," said Paul Alfieri, VP Corporate Marketing and Communications, Limelight Networks. "In fact, to deliver this ad campaign we used our own best practices and technologies from Limelight EyeWonder Interactive Advertising services—in essence we're practicing what we're preaching.

The visual centerpiece of the campaign is a series of attention-getting "Stop Faking It" instant-play video banners, the first of which features a faux magician complete with pencil mustache pretending to open a garage door as if by magic.

"The point behind this fake demonstration of prowess and the entire campaign is to communicate how Limelight can help marketing and advertising professionals use new digital marketing technology not just for the sake of it, but to achieve real, measurable results," according to Janet Carlisle, Vice President, Client Services at PJA Advertising + Marketing. "We worked closely with Limelight to illustrate that concept in a fun and engaging way."

Users can engage with the ad units to instantly download a "Quick Tip" to increase engagement, or click through to the Limelight resource center to register for a more in-depth report covering online advertising, mobile and video trends and best practices.

Demos of the ad units can be seen here and here.

These interactive ad units are part of a larger integrated Limelight demand generation campaign utilizing other marketing channels such as email, content syndication programs, database marketing, mobile advertising, social media and SEM.

The first phase of the online ad campaign promotes Limelight EyeWonder Interactive Advertising services, while later phases will promote Limelight's technology offerings that allow marketers to easily and effectively capitalize on the use of video and mobile in their marketing programs.
