Effective Marketing: Put a Client in the Ad

Scan0008_1 Once again Holland and Hart of Denver shows its marketing savvy by putting an ad in the September 2006 issue of Corporate Counsel magazine that features a client in the ad.  (Click on the image to the right to see it full-size.)

It's smart marketing  because:

  • The ad is all about the client, not the firm.
  • It depicts David Jacobs, founder and CEO of Spyder Active Sports, Inc., a Holland and Hart client that makes cool sportswear, which incorporates Bluetooth technology to use with an iPod or cell phone and high-tech shock-absorbing material.
  • The scene is clearly in the Colorado mountains, underscoring the firm's tag line "The Law Out West."
  • The ad lists the name of a person to call as well as the firm web site.
  • It positions the law firm with the innovativeness of its client.

Kudos, again, to "Marketing Guy" Mark Beese at Holland & Hart.
