|The mistake: incorrectly describing your agency.
Traditional agencies that want to move into the digital/new media world often forget that how they describe themselves has a huge impact on the first impression perception of prospective clients. Identifying your firm as “XYZ Advertising” or “XYZ Communications” typecasts you as a “1980’s-style” traditional agency.
Instead, consider using a “logo lock-up” where, right under your brand name, you provide a list of what you do . . . and always include something that typecasts you as being adept in the digital world, e.g.,
advertising . interactive
e-commerce . media
on / offline public relations
social media . digital marketing
