The story of northlich

 

We tell stories. Good ones. Strategic ones. The kind of stories you'd expect from a Brand Engagement agency of over 60 years that focuses on truly connecting with consumers and changing their behavior.

We believe media is anywhere we can share those stories, anywhere the consumer will engage. And our strategies and "Uplifting Insights" tell stories themselves, differentiating and driving results for the brands we work with in the Consumer, Health & Wellness, Restaurant, Retail, and Public Relations categories.

We know that if you find the story for your brand, you also find your customer. Or, better yet, they find you. Now you've found us. Let's give your customers a story to believe in.

 

 

Consumer

 

We have a long history of bringing to life—and to launch—consumer brands and products. Over the years, we've helped make household names of brands like StarKist, Birds Eye, Totes and Finlandia Vodka. Based on strong, uplifting consumer insights, our work tells a story, evokes emotion and affects behavior. Take a look at a few of our case studies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HEALTH & WELLNESS

 

Effective healthcare marketing requires unique knowledge and know-how. That's why we take so much pride in our Health & Wellness specialists. From strategy to creative, we create action and preference. Whether that's building volume and reputation for hospitals like Ohio State University Medical Center, activating a statewide movement against tobacco use, or turning influencers into advocates for Procter & Gamble, our Health & Wellness team knows what it takes to make, and keep, a brand healthy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Restaurant

 

We love selling food as much as we love eating it. In the fast world of QSR and casual dining, we build brand and product stories that make you think twice about lunch today. We've been bringing in new heavy users for years now, for restaurants the likes of White Castle, LaRosa's and YUM! Brands' Long John Silver's. Get a taste of what we can do by browsing through our case studies.

 

 

 

Retail

 

Retail is its own animal. (The rules do not apply.) For our retail brands, we bring stories to life without losing sight of the end result. It's "art in overalls"—inspire and engage, while at the same time getting the job done. Our work for brands like Sam's Club, Ohio Lottery and White House Black Market does exactly that. Take a look for yourself.

 

 

 

 

 

Public Relations

 

Northlich’s public relations and word of mouth prowess includes media relations (new and traditional), reputation and image management, regulatory/government communications, influencer and community relations, crisis communications, philanthropy and general internal/external communications. Our capabilities include message development across diverse platforms and channels. We navigate complex environments and ensure that you are heard. We are your counselors, sounding board, wordsmiths, tacticians.

 

 

 

 

 

About Us

 

Our culture begins with our purpose, one word—LIFT. LIFT drives who we are and what we do.

Our goal is to LIFT our partners in the Consumer, Health & Wellness, Restaurant, and Retail industries. We tell meaningful stories for clients who give us permission to deliver results—LIFT their brand—in unique and compelling ways. And we use Brandstorm®, our post-digital approach to uncovering differentiating “uplifting insights,” strategizing media channels, and executing work that is alive, talkable and purpose-filled.

Simply, we exist to LIFT.
