Marketicity is proudly located in Waterloo, Illinois, a suburb of St. Louis located just 20 minutes from the downtown landmarks of St. Louis Cardinals Busch Stadium and the Enterprise Center, home of the 2019 Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis Blues. Much like we love our hometown teams we love our “hometown” clients but our reach travels further. This blog focuses on our national client base located in our “backyard” or slightly further way. Here are some highlights from our many years’ worth of hard work helping Move Their Brands Forward!
National Corn Growers Association
The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), located in Chesterfield, Missouri represents the interests of more than 300,000 growers who contribute through corn checkoff programs in their states. NCGA and its 50 affiliated state organizations work together to create and increase opportunities for corn growers.
Marketicity provides coordination and public relations support for NCGA’s premier grower participation program – the National Corn Yield Contest. The NCYC annual contest sees grower involvement from nearly all 50 states and challenges farmers to produce the most bushels of corn per acre across nine different categories. Helping to promote the incredible successes and achievements of farmers from coast to coast by sharing their stories with hundreds of local and regional radio, TV and print publications is a highly detailed and immensely rewarding undertaking.
Our planning, branding, and strategic development skills in the spirits category extends back 20+ years. In that time we have worked on some of the biggest brands in their categories and helped launch or grow numerous others. Proving distance is never an inhibitor to helping clients solve their marketing challenges, we work closely with this client who is based out of Chicago while the company maintains locations across the globe.
The current portfolio of brands that Marketicity supports, through our relationship with Senior Brand lead, is for the Cordials, Liqueurs and Brandy category. There are so many facets and nuances to keep in mind that orchestrating and executing these programs is incredibly challenging but also allows for unique thinking and solution development. From traditional marketing elements to websites, social media, videos and sales materials, our team provides vast resources for this great client in so many areas.
National Corn-to-Ethanol Research Center
The National Corn-to-Ethanol Research Center, also known NCERC, has been a trusted partner for more than four years. Located in Edwardsville, Illinois, on the campus of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville (SIUE), NCERC is a leading research center generating over $4B of commercialized results for private industry, startup companies, government entities and trade organizations. What was once a research center solely focused on the ethanol category, this industry leader’s capabilities now extend further than ever in the research, development and commercialization for feed agnostic research.
Originally brought together through the need to develop a single trade show presence, the partnership with NCERC has expanded to include research, branding, positioning, collateral materials, a new online presence, displays, video storytelling and more. Our team works hand-in-hand with key members of the client team including the executive director, business development director, nationally renowned research team members, project managers and plant personnel. All for the purpose of helping to position the center for growth in the burgeoning field of research and green energy commercialization.
