  • JASE is a creative studio in the Ghent area of Norfolk. We've lived in the Hampton Roads business environment for over 17 years and have grown to understand the needs of businesses and, more importantly, the wants of Hampton Roads consumers. When we begin talking about PR strategies in a few minutes, this point will be a common thread sewn through all the initiatives we touch on.
  • Back to JASE being a creative studio--yes, creative to our clients usually means creative advertising. But creative to us is a way of life. Unique creativity creeps into our advertising campaigns. Creativity creeps into our communications campaigns, or public relations campaigns which we'll talk about shortly. And creativity creeps into the solutions developed by our tech teams, both software app developers and network engineers. So in essence, creative is our middle name no matter the project we are working on.
  • Understanding the differences between Marketing, Advertising, Public Relations (JASE Communications), and Branding is the first step in developing an effective communications campaign.
  • Understanding that today's communication is not the same as your father's PR is where we'll start. Today's communications channels are borderless. Our methods, mediums and technologies are ever-changing. Gone is the day of a note or a phone call tip. Emails, blog announcements, tweets, and video chats (think Skype and Google+ Hangouts) are now the norm when reaching out to media channels and the public in general. Today's effective communications team is well-educated and well-versed in these tactics.

  • 3. CREATIVE Creative for most people is an adjective. According to Merriam-Webster's Dictionary, creative is defined as, "having or showing an ability to make new things or think of new ideas." For JASE, creative is a way of life. It is our philosophy. COMMUNICATIONS Communication channels in the 21st century business world are borderless. The methods and mediums that facilitate our daily communications are ever changing. Gone is the day of just a note, phone call or memo. Today's communication is filled with emails, tweets, texts, posts, video chats and more. Figuring out which is the best way to communicate with your audience has become no easy task. TECHNOLOGY In the late 90's and early 00's we were designing websites, building content management systems, complex eCommerce applications, financial toolsets and intranets. Life was good. Then, we had an epiphany. We could see the unavoidable collision of the internet and marketing and we knew that if JASE were to have a sustainable business model well into the future, we would have to capitalize on the inevitable. What we didn't know was that our foray into marketing would make us a better technology company.
  • 4. Public Relations vs Advertising Marketing: Our product is best. Advertising: Our product is best. Our product is best. Our product is best. Public Relations: I promise you, our product is best. :Branding I understand that your product is best.
