ABOUT US

For 20 years, we’ve been changing.

CHANGING THE GAME for our clients with communications programs that DRIVE SIGNIFICANT BUSINESS RESULTS. Changing the way we do business, from our humble roots crammed into a closet-sized office, to our team with flagship offices in San Francisco, New York and a new office in Western Wisconsin to serve our Midwest clients to a virtual, distributed team spread out across the country but connected via our shared set of values. Changing what we do from mostly intermediary-based PUBLIC RELATIONS to truly INTEGRATED COMMUNICATIONS that includes a mix of earned media, INFLUENCER MARKETING, CONTENT creation, curation and amplification including PODCASTING, culture-building INTERNAL COMMUNICATIONS, and world-class ACTIVATIONS. And we will continue to change and innovate as our craft, our competencies, and most of all the world, changes and evolves.

WHAT WE DO

The time has come for a new way of thinking about leadership in communications.

At Double Forte, our holistic approach to integrated communications generates and simplifies an authentic exchange between people and the brands they value.

We offer a different point of view that unites the most appropriate programming and dynamic execution to help our clients architect and share their stories in a more compelling way. We do this through the most critical media outlets and influencers and directly to key audiences via digital channels.

From concept to design, to content creation and syndication, Double Forte provides comprehensive solutions for digital, social, and traditional communications campaigns.

INTERNAL COMMUNICATIONS

We believe your most important constituents are the people who work for you and with you. Our internal communications programs create critical TOUCHPOINTS for your team in ways that create radical CLARITY, build TRUST and help build positive CULTURES that propel a business forward.

RECRUITING

At the core of any brand, any business are the people. Our recruiting program helps you attract, RECRUIT and RETAIN the right people that meet your talent needs and, align with your VALUES and your MISSION.

INFLUENCER
MARKETING

The definition of influence is “the power or capacity of causing an effect in indirect or intangible ways.” However, the effect of influencers is indeed tangible.

Influencer marketing delivers 11X HIGHER ROI than other forms of digital marketing. That’s because a strong influencer marketing program delivers TRUST, AUTHENTICITY, AND DISTRIBUTION.

Research has shown that CONSUMERS TRUST INFLUENCERS more than they do brands. Influencers have earned the trust of their followers and therefore can invite the brands they work with into that circle of trust. And, at Double Forte, we only work with influencers who will earn your trust in turn.

In addition to trust, one of the most important brand attributes among today’s consumer is AUTHENTICITY. When you partner with an influencer who aligns with your brand ethos, they will interpret your message in a truly authentic way.

And finally, influencers have more EFFICIENT DISTRIBUTION MODELS than most brands. Large influencers bring with them a massive, loyal following, and smaller influencers have honed a targeted, relevant audience.

We curate a unique mix of influencers for every campaign we work on, by tapping into OUR EXTENSIVE NETWORK to find the right voice, audience, and delivery for your message.

Our work spans Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, Snap, blogs and podcasts. We find the right movers on the right medium to meet your goals.
