What makes us different? Our attitude, for one. Even in these challenging times, you’d be hard-pressed to find even a hint of negativity among our team members. We call it “realistic optimism,” and it’s something our clients, strategic partners, vendors and prospects can’t help but notice. Some of them even find it refreshing.
In the areas of graphic design, public relations, copy writing, strategic planning and overall creative thinking, this is the best group of people I’ve ever worked with. And that’s saying a lot. I’ll stack our quality, our follow-through and our communication skills up against any organization in any field. Can we improve? Sure. We’re still a company in progress. There’s no complacency around here.
Here’s another thing. We do what we say we’re going to do. When founder D.J. Allen said he wanted to write a book about coaching, business and life with Coach Lon Kruger, he made sure it got done. The result is the “Xs and Os of Success,” one of the best books of its kind. Read it and you’ll understand that success doesn’t happen by accident.
Likewise, when the Imagine team said they wanted to establish a video division, they did it. If you’ve seen any of our “Imagine Shorts,” you’ll know why I’m so proud of their accomplishments.
On our staff, we have a nationally-known award-winning editorial cartoonist, a best-selling novelist, a respected golf columnist, two MBAs, a slew of outstanding public speakers, and a company Mom to keep us all in line. With a group this talented, you should sit in on one of our brainstorming sessions. In fact, consider this your invitation. The door is always open. It’s the most fun you can have at the office. It’s the reason we got into this business in the first place. Not art and creativity for its own sake, but in the name of commerce and results. We’re good at striking just the right balance.
Okay, I’m done bragging now. Except for this – A few years back, we decided that Imagine produced so much funny, quirky material, it could be its own sitcom. Rather than waiting for some Hollywood honcho to discover us, we wrote our own script, “More White Space.” While it generated some L.A. interest and even took top honors in a script-writing contest, you won’t see it on TV anytime soon. But I’m confident it will get filmed, even if we have to do it ourselves.
In the meantime, here’s a link to the script. It’s based loosely (extremely loosely) on the people and events at Imagine Marketing. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it. Let us know what you think!
