Our firm’s multi-discipline expertise includes comprehensive advertising capabilities ranging from concept and creative development to final production and implementation, full-scale media planning and buying across all channels. We are deeply experienced in both traditional and digital advertising, including pay-per-click, contextual and native approaches.

Although we offer the full range of services, our creative and media capabilities are particularly specialized in the areas of corporate, business-to-business, issue-related and advocacy communications. We deliver solutions that help manage perceptions and brand awareness for those uniquely defined target segments and stakeholder groups that drive our clients’ business results.

And because Lumentus is highly entrepreneurial and designed to be totally scalable, our advertising work ranges from long-term Agency of Record relationships to project-specific engagements focused on more immediate or short-term outcomes.

Advertising

Our multi-discipline expertise includes comprehensive capabilities spanning concept and creative development to final production and implementation including the following highlights:

  • A sweet spot in the areas of corporate, product/business-to-business, issue-related and advocacy communications (with B2C, in limited circumstances)
  • Television, print, radio, OOH, online and social expertise
  • Skilled at creative development and execution for domestic and international markets. We have executed campaigns in Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Mandarin and most other major languages

With our cross-functional Lumentus mindset, we ensure that all ideas are based on an integrated creative strategy: A big idea that can work across all channels.

Our process is straightforward:
begin with the business goals; understand the current perception of the target audience; determine what perception is needed to change the target audience’s behavior; and then develop the creative concepts that will create the desired perception. And, of course, we always gauge and measure the impact of our work.

Creative Services

We believe Lumentus offers an approach to advertising and integrated marketing creativity that is different from that of most traditional agencies. As experts in all major marketing disciplines, our team will partner with you to deliver the most effective approach to achieve success. Such an approach is more essential than ever in a highly fragmented media environment and the increasingly competitive circumstances our clients face, no matter the industry.

The effectiveness of our approach is evidenced in the multiple longstanding client relationships we have maintained – many of which span many years. And while we focus on our clients’ business goals and results, we also take pride in the recognition our team’s creative work has received over the years – that includes consistent top performers in readership research studies and awards including multiple Sabre, Mercury, MarCom, PRSA, Aurora and others.

With Lumentus, you’ll have a proven team with a single integrated and efficient focus on your marketing needs and the ability to deliver not just creative solutions, but creative business solutions.

Media Planning/Buying

Lumentus delivers media planning and buying capabilities across all media:

  • National and local broadcast, cable television and radio
  • National, regional or local magazines (trade and consumer)
  • National and local newspapers
  • Out-of-home
  • Social and digital/online media

We bring a particularly deep familiarity with vertical and niche trade media vehicles across a diversity of industries – from oil & gas and healthcare to financial services and electrical and electronic devices.

The Lumentus in-house media group handles planning for virtually all of our clients. The group purchases all media; in certain circumstances, network television purchases are achieved with a larger media buying partner to best leverage buying strengths and optimize pricing.

The most efficient and effective media plans are crafted using the best media research resources. In this regard, Lumentus has access to a complete and up-to-date media research tool kit including the latest syndicated media research for cost and audience data.

Changing Media Habits
The trend for all media usage continues to show the Internet — including websites, search engines and Social Networking — growing at a faster pace than any other media in history. It took nearly 20 years for television to reach the same market penetration as the Internet did in less than three. Further, a Nielsen Lab Study has reported that TV engages people half as long as “second screen” digital devices (tablets, smartphones, laptops). Given such monumental shifts in media habits, our integrated thinking is essential to maximizing reach, frequency and efficiency in the media plans we build for clients.

Negotiating Value
With extensive media buying experience, we bring a deep understanding of buyer-seller dynamics and have developed strong relationships with media sellers. Many of our current clients have seen this dynamic in operation first-hand for years where we provide world-class servicing for domestic and international trade publications with a near perfect success rate.
Similarly, we are often able to provide clients greater value for their advertising dollar through effective “added value” media exposures. Our experience includes work for a firm that markets its services to big pharmaceutical and biotech companies, for whom we were able to negotiate gift subscriptions of a key trade newsletter at a greatly reduced rate. In this instance, the client’s target list of key customers/prospects was merged with the publication’s subscriber list to eliminate duplication, and the publisher paid for all production related to the gift subscriptions.
We look forward to putting this kind of integrated and innovative thinking to work for you.
