Girlpower Marketing is an insights-driven boutique public relations and digital marketing firm specializing in consumer lifestyle brands, with a unique expertise in marketing to women. Our award-winning team has deep experience in public relations and content strategy, influencer engagement, brand experiences and social media. We rely on comprehensive research and thoughtful strategy to deliver exceptional results for our clients, particularly in the food & beverage, health & wellness, home & lifestyle, and travel & hospitality categories.
As a member of Unified Strategies Public Relations international network, we combine the personalized attention of a boutique firm with the scale, experience and network of a global full-service agency to help brands, both big and small, break through the clutter to build lasting relationships with their consumers.
We’re happiest when we’re changing the status quo, thinking outside the box, and having fun along the way — especially when we’re working with clients who feel the same.
And about our name? It’s where we started — with the power of girls. More specifically, the immense financial muscle that U.S. women wield today. Like controlling or influencing 85 percent of all consumer household spending. Now that’s girlpower.
With a landscape that’s more about chatter than original thinking, there’s a real opportunity for brands to stand out in the marketplace. How? By getting noticed. With exceptionally creative ideas, driven by data and compelling insights. Thinking outside the box. Innovative storytelling. All based on smart strategy.
We seamlessly integrate public relations, marketing, digital influence and design to engage consumers, reinforce differentiation and create programs that deliver.
Ideas are at the heart of what we do. Our insights and trendspotting inform our thinking and ensure that we deliver a core strategy and creative platform that generates a game-changing outcome.
We understand that brands are built not only by the company that operates it, but also by those who interact with it. We put insights into action to develop a program that creates meaningful experiences, strengthens engagement and builds influence for your brand.
We find the spot where your stories intersect with what your customers really care about and tell those stories across all channels – earned, owned, paid and shared.
Success means different things to different people. We work together with our clients to identify what success looks like at the outset, and provide comprehensive reporting throughout our programs.
Working within the broader communications landscape of earned, owned, shared and paid media, we design strategies to create real-time conversations with your audience that are amplified and shared across multiple channels, from the nation’s top traditional media outlets to social and digital sites.
Every brand has a story to tell, and it’s more important than ever for that story to be captivating. We shape the stories that bring your brand to life, creatively translating your brand’s messages into newsworthy content and formulate a blueprint for sharing those stories with the right audiences in the right way.
Influencer marketing is the most powerful tool to get your brand message to your audience in a relevant and authentic way. Whether moms or dads, Millennials or Boomers, journalists, celebrity ambassadors or professional experts, we work with influencers to drive engagement by sharing your brand story with their followers.
Whether you are launching a product or hosting an intimate dinner, our team will create the ambience, handle the event details and create the communications strategy that will amplify your brand with key influencers.
We work with you to develop your story with the heart of your brand in mind. We start with research that informs insights. These insights help to differentiate your story, form connections and motivate action.
Every brand has one chance to make a great first impression. From website to logo and collateral, we use clean design, strong imagery and inspired content, all with creative twists that keep your customers staying a little longer.
Whether developing a strategy, building your community, creating content, identifying influencers or monitoring your reach, we are social at the core. We provide comprehensive social media solutions that allow our clients to engage their audiences through creative social outreach and interactive experiences.
We use research-driven insights to craft each client’s unique story, and develop communications programs that increase engagement and drive business results. We understand the power of actionable data, and develop a custom measurement plan for each client, to measure both the reach and impact of the program.
Women are the most powerful consumers on earth – responsible for 85 percent of all household purchases, and controlling $7 trillion in U.S. spending. Yet 91 percent say marketers don’t understand them. Our deep understanding of the female mindset allows us to bring your brand and these powerful consumers together in a true meeting of the minds.
