Business as never before

I am always thankful to spring
and summer as a time for new beginnings. Business is no exception
– particularly this year.
Businesses have been shaken by September 11, by a lack of trust, and
an uncertainty that has
challenged decision-making,

What’s different now?

The speed of business has
slowed down somewhat to a brisk walk instead of a mad .com dash.
People are looking for back-up,
proof, references, testimonials � basically the B to B world is risk


We give up a little privacy in
order to thwart terrorists, and we�ve become more tech savvy as we
learn to block e-newsletters
and solicitations we didn�t request. And finally this is the age of
relationship, so formal and
informal networking is not only a great way to sell � but a great
way to
market (just ask the beer

DUO expounds the virtues of:

  1. being authentic in messaging
    and selling
  2. re-invent your business
    proposal to exhibit your beliefs and expertise
  3. be direct and forthright in
    all your communications
  4. understand what success is –
    before you embark on any endeavor
  5. make the customer king/queen
    � this applies to both new and existing customers.

If you have a valuable product
or service – we want to help you market.

About Duo Strategy and Design?

Incorporated in 1987, Duo was
at once an anomaly. We were more than a design firm because we
offered marketing
communications consulting married with graphic design on the
fulfillment side –
clients likened us to a
‘pint-sized’ full-service agency. We built relationships based on
success and
trust. Over the years, we have
developed into an incubator-style strategy and design firm moving
seamlessly between strategic
marketing, new and existing brand development and new media.
