About Traction

Traction is a creative agency that is very good at uncovering insights about your customer and connecting them to the work we produce for your brand through branding, advertising/content and digital experiences.

Insights are critical for producing work that drives business results because today's customer is not just harder to reach, they are actively taking steps to ignore your marketing. The reason Traction exists is to create work that people actually want to consume.

Our core competencies are branding, advertising and web design. We have in-house capabilities for strategy, creative, media, web development and analytics.

But what sets us apart is how we've created an integrated method of working that ensures ideas are always driven by insights.

It's a formula that works. Over the past few years, Traction has been a 4-time finalist for iMedia Small Agency of the Year and has won Small Agency of the Year awards from both Advertising Age and the Business Marketing Association. We were proud to be named the #1 Creative Advertising Agency in the US by Agency Spotter in 2018.

From the beginning, I knew Traction was a great fit because they immediately understood our challenges. We were a new product and still evolving, but Adam (CEO) and Theo (Creative Director) were very good about articulating the challenges we faced and helped us clarify our product and choose a lane.

What I liked about Traction was I had all the resources of a big agency but in a package of a boutique agency. If I needed X they had it. If I needed Y they did it. When I needed creative, Theo would show up, and when I needed account services, Adam would show up.

Traction was extremely valuable and made a big contribution to our company.

When I met Traction, they understood what we needed at the time and came to the table with a bunch of creative ideas. They did their homework. Their relationship building was excellent. Their power of listening was exceptional. It was a really good project, and they did terribly terribly well.

There was a moment, an outstanding tipping point, when I knew I had chosen the right agency. We were going through concept generation with them and they had presented to the executive group. Traction nailed the meeting and clearly presented what their solutions would deliver. That moment was a validation, because I knew I had picked the right agency, but getting a response from the executive board was a true validation.

In terms of results, we were working in channels Bank of America hadn’t worked in before, so there were no benchmarks. Our company being relatively risk averse, Traction was able to blow the targets out of the water 10x. They were spectacular.

We needed an agency fulfill our mandate to create more brand relevance among younger consumers and needed a progressive, digital focused agency. Traction fulfilled those requirements. As well, the location of the agency was aligned to one of our regional brand’s focus to maximize on consumer relevance.

We knew we made the right choice when they presented back our mandate in their words – they got it with rigorous understanding.

The campaign is not in market yet, but they have so far delivered on relevant brand positioning and breakthrough ideas.
