Imagine having confidence in every piece of marketing that goes out your door.

Your website, digital content, sales presentations, and marketing support materials are proactive and relevant.

Most of all, your analytics show they’re effective.

That means you’re making a bigger impact. Attracting more leads. Your sales team is energized and closing more business/deals.

Your marketing is working.

Are you certain the next marketing message you send is relevant?

  • If invigorating sales is your top priority…
  • If you’re worried about getting the response you want for your marketing spend…
  • If your marketing and sales teams aren’t aligned the way they should be…
  • If you’ve never properly honed your company’s value to customers…

Now is the perfect time to re-examine and re-vitalize.

With our phased Brand Positioning & Messaging Roadmap, Element-R Partners designs and craft messages that resonate for B2B businesses.

Your priority is your business. Ours is to critically assess what’s being said, and how well it hits buyers’ hot buttons.

From a typical, staid tradeshow booth, to drawing visitors with eye-popping, relatable problems solved by Mediafly.

Go bold! Evolved Selling™ software maker Mediafly offers a sophisticated content management and sales enablement solution to organizations worldwide. To really make a statement at its channel partners’ annual conferences, Dreamforce and Sapphire, Mediafly nixed the typical descriptive booth copy, instead drawing visitors in with bold problem statements its audience could relate to.

Together with design partner DoubleTake Design, Element-R developed channel partner messaging and several alternative creative concepts for the booth. We couldn’t have been happier that Mediafly selected this unusual and compelling way to present itself. Traffic was steady at the booths as visitors walked up to say, “can you really solve that problem for us?” The creative concept continues to be used successfully to bring attention to Mediafly’s many capabilities – proving that B2B marketing doesn’t have to be boring!


From an outdated, text-heavy website to a vibrant new presence deserving of all the storied Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School (O-School) offers to literally change students’ lives.

To meet a changing world of special education with funding and competitive challenges, the O-School needed to reacquaint its many publics about the organization’s mission and capabilities.

Interviewing staff and multiple influencer groups, Element-R developed a “messaging playbook” that served as the basis for all aspects of its external communication to encourage student enrollment and support funding. The backbone of this effort were two new websites, and, creating a cohesive presence for the School in all of its materials, and bringing it into the 21st Century.


What do people really care about when choosing an Independent Living facility? Many don’t want to live in a resort. See the warm family environment at Three Crowns Park.

When the nation’s oldest senior living community in the U.S. needed to reinvigorate its marketing, Element-R Partners helped Three Crowns Park play to its strengths in a crowded marketplace.

Through a deep dive with residents and staff, we developed messaging that appealed to retirees who don’t want to live in a cold institution or ritzy resort/hotel setting. The new website faithfully presents this welcoming and close-knit community of friendship and relaxed, suburban style living.


From a basic, descriptor website to one that showcases a consultative and collaborative approach to AV and event staging for Stage Right, Inc.

All high-end professional AV and event staging companies show off their best events to attract prospects. Stage Right, Inc. needed to revitalize its digital doorstep and deliver key differentiators.

Element-R created a new, from the ground up website that made the company stand out on two fronts. First, instead of simply showing off glitz, we organized and showcased its capabilities by category, allowing prospects to identify and pair their challenges with a clear solution. Second, we branded and spotlighted the company’s proprietary planning protocols, now known as StageCraft™. Stage Right, Inc. has a modern, responsive site that places its distinctive competencies out front.


Speak with the right authority and the target will listen … introducing a breakthrough in personal medicine for Genelex.

In the early days of personalized medicine, few people understood the new science of pharmacogenetics – how medicines interact with an individual’s genes, often causing avoidable side effects. YouScript software by Genelex (now owned by Invitae) was a pioneering technology giving physicians detailed input on these interactions for the benefit of patients.

To gain industry media attention for the relatively unknown company, Element-R recommended a purely educational webinar for the media only. Delivered entirely by an M.D., the webinar effectively informed editors and reporters about the topic – with a bonus: several covered the burgeoning science and the company’s leadership in feature-length articles.


A product launch event that shows off customers… to each other? “Best corporate event ever attended” for USG.

Demanding an innovative departure from predictable product introductions, USG tapped Element-R to help unveil new, patented technology.

We created a high impact event for industry leaders by an industry leader, using several non-traditional elements to make the launch distinctive:

  • Keynote speaker Daniel Libeskind, famed international architect
  • Held at the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Quadracci Pavilion, a venue with both architectural and construction interest
  • Directly involving guests by showing their own innovative projects in a Showcase Art Gallery;
  • facilitating interaction throughout the evening

  • Limiting technology introduction time to a 20-minute presentation by USG
  • The event achieved the objectives of generating excitement around the new technology while seeding long-term market interest among the 70+ guests from 35 companies. The majority of survey respondents rated the event as outstanding.
