LOMBARD, IL., June 27, 2018 – We’ve all seen the same old ads while sitting on the couch and staring at the electronic box in our living room. Scrolling down a website after a lazy Google search, we find banners and buttons with ads and endorsements. They speckle our lives, even while driving down the highway, billboards bust into our sights. But they are always a nuisance, only sometimes with the redeeming feature of faint-hearted comedy.

Why are these advertisements and commercials such blemishes? After all, they could be art, beauty, or drama. The reason is that companies go to advertising and branding agencies to create those ads, but most of the agencies do not take people into consideration. At Stevens & Tate, we are driven by understanding people and keeping up with constant innovation. As a result, our advertising and branding strategy has found deep-rooted success with our clients and, importantly, their customers. We “Make Things Happen” for our client partners.

Of course, we know what we do here at Steven & Tate, but when the ratings and review site, Clutch, wanted to find out how we work, they went to our clients. Based in Washington, D.C., the B2B analyst site compiles objective quantitative data, acquires in-depth customer reviews through an interview process, and examines numerous case studies to allow for greater transparency and efficiency in the workplace. Well-respected and well-sourced, Clutch is an excellent tool for B2B companies.

Based on this analysis, Stevens & Tate was fortunate enough to have been ranked as one of the top advertising agencies in Chicago! Our clients provided honest and celebratory feedback to Clutch. A huge thank you goes out to our partner clients who have helped make our work possible.

Felichia Fields, Assistant Director of St. Catherine’s Village explained her experience working with Stevens & Tate. “Their investment in us as a nonprofit is most impressive. They took the time to secret shop our competitors and see what they had to say about St. Catherine’s. It was great to have that outsider’s perspective. That passion is hard to find outside of an organization’s direct employees, and wouldn’t likely be displayed by other vendors. We never had a contract that specified a certain number of years that we’d work with them. The partnership has worked so well for us that we want it to continue.”

Tom Marcucci, VP of Marketing at Gonnella Baking Co, shared a similar experience. “They understand our company and they understand our brand. They’re very responsive. If I give them a task, they hit the mark and don’t misunderstand. We just understand each other and there’s no confusion.”

For some time now, we at Stevens and & Tate have differentiated ourselves by building trust with meaningful storytelling. Ours is a long-term approach, not a throwaway. We love getting to know our diverse range of clients. Through the process of connecting with clients, we have been able to establish mutually beneficial relationships that guide our strategic vision. With the help of Clutch, and their sister site, The Manifest, (where we are also featured among top digital marketing agencies in Chicago), new client reviews will continue to help tell our story of perfecting the product we produce for our clients!
