INDUSTRY EXPERTISE

We know what works with financial brands and why. And because financial services is our specialty, we can easily speak the language of everyday consumers, private bankers, high-end investors, and internal sales staff.

Our creative talent has years of experience developing exceptional work that delivers. We understand that each client’s needs are different and develop conceptual ideas that work with who our clients are and where they want to be.

what we do

Our Services

Creative Development

With M. Barry and Co., you aren’t just getting any ad agency. You’re getting an agency built to serve the specific needs of financial companies. Our senior-level talent has a deep understanding of what’s happening in the marketplace, insight into what works and what doesn’t, and knowledge of what we can and cannot say from a legal perspective. We approach every project with the same focus: to turn smart insight into strong creative concepts that cut through the clutter. And most importantly, we know how to create work that results in increased sales, usage, and retention.

collateral

Every interaction with your customer is an opportunity to deliver your brand message and distinguish yourself from the competition. We ensure you make the most of it. We write, design, and produce quality collateral that works, from brochures and sales aids to fulfillment kits and other materials. And we are well versed in targeting specific audiences, including mass and high-net-worth individuals, as well as small, medium, and large businesses.

Merchandising

From the moment your customers experience your brand, whether it’s within a branch environment or outside looking in, we work to ensure they feel an emotional connection to who you are and what you offer. From signage to videos and digital LCD displays, we make it our mission for our communications to stay true to your company, your brand, and your customers. Every piece we create has a clear message with the sole purpose of compelling the audience to act in a desired manner.

Direct Marketing

Targeting your message to a specific audience can be extremely effective. Of course, you need to put it into the right hands, in the right way, at the right time in order to get the best ROI. We design, write, and produce materials that highlight your product or service, and motivate recipients to act. Whatever your direct mail needs are — letters, postcards, brochures, and more — we’ve got you covered.

Digital

Through our dedicated web and social media partners, we’re able to offer insight into digital advertising and social media trends. At the same time, we focus on the one thing that will always remain: the need for clear, concise creative messaging. Our work includes landing pages, email blasts, banner ads, takeover pages, and digital merchandising.

Advertising

Your brand has a unique voice and message. It’s our job to make sure yours is well positioned and well received. From designing and launching a new brand to capturing the essence of an existing brand, we develop smart, strategic creative that gets results. Our integrated campaigns are successful across print, digital, video, and many other forms of communication. We know what works and what doesn’t. And that shows in everything we do.
