America’s Favorite Boat Brand

Bertram Yachts & their brokerage division Richard Bertram Yachts needed a quick and seamless marketing transition as the company restructured. Made in the USA, their legacy yachts have a sincere and massive fan following. We are in charge of maintaining their brand image, promoting the new Bertram 61, rolling out the new Bertram 50, and showcasing the Bertram 35. Each platform we market on is tied to a larger marketing strategy. A project like this truly exciting and fun for us to handle. The company is rich in history, and it has been our pleasure to help expand the Bertram Empire.

meticulously built & fully equipped.

This spacious 62ft catamaran was kept entirely quiet and offline until its World Premiere at the United States Sailboat Show’s 50th Anniversary. Building out a brand with this much attention to detail with a global team was exciting and downright fun.

Daedalus Yachts

America’s First Hydrogen Powered Production Yacht

D80 harbour.jpg

A hydrogen powered zero emissions yacht company built in the USA. Marketing included social media, magazine editorial PR, videography, newsletters, custom branded gifting, in-person client meetings bothy domestically and internationally, VR tours, and customized event planning.

Special Considerations: Daedalus Yachts wanted selective marketing to individuals for the first year due to privacy and the 80ft yachts higher price point. We won Best In Show at the first boat show attended.

SNUGGIN

Designed by parents, for parents. Snuggin allows you to attach pacifiers, teethers, or any other baby toys to its Velcro arms and legs to keep them close and easy to find at all times. We had fun doing the initial product photo shoot with the founders of Snuggin. Monkey Fist advised them on strategic social planning and website design. They went on to have hundreds of 5-Star Amazon reviews and expanded their product offerings. I just love when a vision becomes a reality!

I don’t know what we would have done without Sonja and the crew at Monkey Fist to create content and manage our Social Media accounts for the last 6 years. Not only do they provide excellent content and stimulating links to other articles and sites, but their endeavors drive measurable traffic back to our website leading to increased sales, brand awareness, and customer satisfaction.

BGC | G&G

BuilderGuru - Maryland’s leading general contractor with the most award-winning projects in the state. Their portfolio includes: schools, hospitals, yacht clubs, restaurants, LEED projects, banks, and many more categories. We were there when the two brands combined into one, creating a power-house unity in the build industry. With a new website, social media, newsletter, and print marketing, these guys made their mark. They also started to rank on page one of search results in just a few months. This project was literally us flipping through binders from the 1970’s and creating a digital presence out of them. BGC | G&G produces absolutely stunning work each and every time and they were a pleasure to work with.
