Ideas and solutions don't break through − they get invited in.

Marketing and communications are hyper-personal, and getting people to truly engage means addressing their specific needs and interests.

We work with more than 100 clients in dozens of industries, finding the best ways to connect them with the individuals who need their brand or service most.

At Fahlgren Mortine, our diverse experience has led to a collaborative approach designed to create solutions that entertain, educate and connect with a wide range of audiences. Our work turns skeptics into believers and consumers into loyal customers.

Case Studies

MVB Bank

2015 Campaign

The Opportunity

In 2014, Fahlgren Mortine developed a brand campaign for MVB Bank built on the idea that MVB is where your financial life is made easier. For 2015, MVB's focus was on growth. Grow our Clients. Grow our Team. Grow our Bank.

Fahlgren Mortine's challenge was to expand the brand campaign, applying it to the retail promotions and specific products that would help MVB achieve its growth goals.

The Solution

Using the "MVB Bank. Your Financial Life. Made Easy." campaign theme – Fahlgren Mortine was able to promote the MVB experience of banking while selling retail-focused products such as checking and CDs.

In 2015, Fahlgren Mortine had the added responsibility of media planning and buying. And while traditional media such as radio and newspaper continued to be placed — paid search, social media and online marketing were added to the mix...a first for MVB Bank. Fahlgren Mortine also helped the bank implement an in-branch strategy to help cross-promote products and drive brand awareness.
