Like a lot of people, the staff of Fusion Hill is looking forward to long holiday weekends and gathering with friends and family, enjoy marvelously heavy food and give thanks for the year behind us. And we have a great deal to be thankful for! We’ve scored big wins with new health care and financial clients, while being lucky enough to have our long time client relationships continue—and grow even stronger.

A few highlights from our year:

– We entered a new beauty category, and in the process, went for
hikes in the mountains near Seoul, Korea.

– We returned to Brazil, this time to research men’s fragrance.

– We built an event strategy for a major health care company
with a prime time TV twist.

– We created a wellness brand for the world’s foremost innovator in personal computing.

– We added several incredibly talented staff members.

…And the list continues to grow every month. We feel very fortunate, we’re loving our work, and growing our brand and our business as we head
to our 10th anniversary in 2014!

Marketing with Heart.

In our years of health care marketing experience we’ve seen that the most successful approach hinges on education as a means to engagement. From broad-reaching large-scale campaigns to more targeted tactics, knowing what people want and helping them learn what fills those wants is what gets their attention. This is especially true of health care marketing, which is the majority of our business. That’s why at Fusion Hill, we have both a research team to understand the consumer, and a design team to communicate to the consumer in ways that educate, engage and compel.

Last week, we were named the agency to handle both market research and the creative for the commercial launch of an implantable medical device that manages atrial fibrillation. First, we’ll uncover insights about the patient’s journey with the disease, as well as the roles of physicians, family and friends, the implanters, and other influencers. In the process we’ll observe patients’ drivers and barriers to using an implantable device. We’ll take all these insights together to craft a campaign to educate patients about the device and its benefits. The campaign will also encourage them to ask their doctor to learn more about whether they could receive it as an improvement to their quality of life.

Our client is a major player in the industry with a new device that’s going to change the landscape atrial fibrillation therapy. We’re delighted to be a part of that new world, and can’t wait to get started.

The Basics of Engagement.

At Fusion Hill, consumer engagement is king. We’re always exploring ways to reach people where they are–web, print, direct mail, branding and more. Our research arm does the heavy lifting in finding insights, while our design group’s creative rocks tactics that are familiar and time-tested one day, and new and leading-edge the next.

In a recent project for a major health care client, this simple direct mail gem has us pretty excited. It opens like a FedEx package, giving consumers the basic, tactile, designed-to-open experience of a reveal and the sense of opening a special message delivered just for them. With thoughtfully laid out scannable content, this mailer is a true engager, right in your mailbox.

Getting Creative with Health Plan Options.

In the changing health care landscape, we’re helping a major health care client stay ahead of the curve by supporting large employers in finding creative ways to keep health costs down. One popular option is the health savings account (HSA) and another is health reimbursement account (HRA)—including versions like the health incentive account (HIA) and retiree reimbursement account (RRA). Are any of these part of your health insurance plan? Do they encourage you to be conscientious in your health care choices? These and similar questions are part of our latest research and creative initiatives.

Ever wonder if all those targeted emails and direct mail pieces drive consumer behavior? Answering that question is very simple with a PURL, or Personal URL, campaign. In a PURL campaign, each recipient is driven to a unique landing page created just for them. We’re excited about a recent campaign for a major health care client that’s gotten great response in open, click through and conversion rates. How would you like to visit a landing page created just for you by your health insurer?
