MIAMI, March 1, 2013 – rbb Public Relations, a leading national marketing PR and digital firm will introduce its Breakout Brand strategy during a Meetup at the SXSW Interactive Conference in Austin, TX. rbb’s digital and social media strategists from the firm’s Digital Park division will give attendees a first-hand look at an evolutionary brand strategy that emphasizes customer engagement, interactive marketing and the value of emotional connections with customers.
rbb has detailed the Breakout Brand strategy in a white paper that explores the key drivers behind customer buying behavior. The firm has conducted extensive national research on the strategies that companies can use to connect with consumers in personal and lasting ways. This research will be shared at the conference.
“Our goal is to show SXSWi attendees how technology can help produce a form of brand loyalty that they have only dreamed of,” said Chris de la Huerta, VP of Digital Park at of rbb Public Relations. “SXSWi is all about the latest in interactive, consumer experiences, and the Breakout Brand strategy is a perfect way to connect those experiences with the ever-important job of marketing and business development.”
According to rbb’s research, some of the most effective organizations today are adopting a strategy that focuses on the customer — not the competition.
“Competitive analyses may still matter, but they are taking a back seat now that consumers have a new voice,” said de la Huerta. “Technology allows companies to communicate directly with customers and put them first – and that is what defines the Breakout Brand approach.”
rbb identifies three types of Breakout Brands. These include established brands, such as Ford, that have to maintain their leadership by constant innovation and communication with their target audience. Breakout Brands are also companies that are well engaged with customers but seek to distinguish themselves by growing their category with originality, such as Duncan Hines, and can be emerging organizations that create a new market: think Zappos.
The “Best-of Breakout Brands” Meetup will take place on Sunday, March 10 at 12:30pm CT at the Driskill Hotel in Austin. At the Meetup, a unique pool of industry experts from the fields of marketing, interactive media and creative services will explore new brand strategies and compare notes on breakout brand behaviors that they are witnessing at SXSW.

Why Choose rbb
"rbb interviewed us. Most firms went through the motions of answering our RFP without thought for whether they were right for the job or we fit their skill set. You interviewed us to see if we were the right fit for you and reviewed it with your team before agreeing to pitch. It reminded me that when I interview candidates, the ones who interview me always end up being the better hire."
"rbb’s boutique status attracted us. We want a firm where we work with the senior staff in a personalized relationship. We were amazed by your long staff tenure."
"rbb was smart and didn’t give us cookie-cutter treatment. You took the time to look at our company, what we’ve already done and what we weren’t doing. It was so frustrating to hear firms say, do a newsletter when we already have one. We didn’t expect spec work, but your overview of the strategic direction we should take was right on and your budgets made sense."
"rbb’s credentials and awards were very impressive especially the PR Week Agency of the Year and repeated “Best Place to Work” accolades."
"rbb had a great website. Most PR firm websites are interchangeable and talk in excruciating detail about their capabilities. Your firm gave us a feel for HOW you do things not just what you do and made us want to find out more."
"rbb was responsive. You got back to me quickly and asked questions. I like that you answer your own phone."
"rbb’s exclusivity policy stood out. We like the idea of all the firm resources being dedicated to only one client in a category."
"rbb references were amazing. So many clients, who’ve been with you so long — 10, 20 years — saying such amazing things."
"rbb has won every major award in the PR industry and these were in a broad array of categories including creative tactics, reputation management, B2B marketing, community relations, and digital. Very few agencies can be excellent across the board. rbb has it all and at a gold-level standard!"
"We love the complimentary customized extranet rbb set up. Other firms charge thousands for this service and the speed with which you had it up and running with our logos, sample action plans, team contact lists and of course the proposal was amazing. It set a great example of how we will manage a long distance relationship."
