In simple terms, Brand Excitement exists to help its clients reach new audiences in order to serve the greater good. Education moves us forward and entrepreneurship is its best vehicle. We endeavor to be a key resource in brand positioning, ambassadorship and education so that the right resources reach the right people in plenty of time for action. It’s a movement.
Brand Excitement launched in 2010 in the New York City to a waiting list of clients and since then we have become warriors with a special talent at selling the untouchable (services) and making the invisible in demand. Our core clientele includes entrepreneurs, educators and finance. Why? Their impact is immediate and lasting. We focus on three core components of brand growth to reach unrivaled results for our clients: attraction, engagement and retention.
Though our mainstay offices are in the New York city metro area our clients span the United States and Canada.
