agency at a glance

Ever taken a complex marketing problem to an advertising agency? Here's a guess: they tried to solve the problem with ads. Same with a PR firm (with PR). Or a digital firm (a website, of course). Not here. Our 103 associates help solve your challenges with the best mix of marcom disciplines. So whether you need all eight of our in-house service groups or just one, the JMG team is truly at its best during integration. And through this seamless integration, you can save time and money and maximize the impact of your program.

Core In-House Services


Like most agencies, we have won our share of awards, including BMA Awards, Mercury's, and even BtoB's Top Agency list (for overall, digital and events). But our most important "award" is the feedback from our clients, who, in our 2012 Client Survey, gave us a 3.72 rating (on a scale of 4.0) to the question, "How likely would you be to recommend JMG to another company?" Clients telling others that we're great to work with; that's the approval that matters most to us.

Jackson Marketing Group

Every agency has clients. Most have nice offices. Hardworking employees. And they care about their work. So how is one different from the next? Truth is, most aren't.
You've Got Challenges.
We've Got Solutions.
But Jackson Marketing Group is different from traditional ad shops. Because since 1987, our mission has been to create effective, strategically sound integrated marketing solutions that get noticed and help build client brands. We'll do whatever it takes to make sure what's important to you becomes important to your audience. Whether it's social media, mobile apps, advertising, promotions or throwing toilet paper during a press conference. That last bit may seem strange, but it worked for our client. And that's what matters.

Our Client

Hyster lift trucks, a global leader in lift truck manufacturing and sales since 1929.

Our Challenge

In recent years, Hyster's brand image had become watered down. It had ceased to own "tough" in the minds of end users, though they still made one of the toughest lift trucks on the planet. Their tagline at the time, "The SAFE Choice," certainly didn't convey this legacy of toughness. JMG was retained to help reality defeat perception.

Our Solution

We worked closely with Hyster to pull critical insights from brand image studies and assess the strategic gap between their current and desired positioning. To bridge that gap, we helped create a new strategic platform based on the "toughness" attribute—one that the brand could legitimately claim and rightfully own. This platform became the driver for a totally new, tough-minded, integrated marketing campaign that showcased Hyster lift trucks hard at work in their toughest applications (along with the people whose jobs they made easier). Aptly named "Bring It," the campaign was launched to employees, dealers, and end user targets via advertising, PR, collateral, trade shows, event marketing, digital communications and dealer marketing materials. As a result, the toughest lift trucks on the planet have reclaimed their throne as the toughest lift trucks on the planet.
