New Month, New Partnership!
Today Chuck Hester Enterprises is announcing a partnership with Media Two Interactive in Raleigh, North Carolina. It’s a chance for both firms to add to their capabilities – me in the advertising and digital media realm and Media Two in the traditional PR area.
I’m excited to get a chance to work with Michael Hubbard, CEO of Media Two and his great staff to bring digital advertising capabilities to current and future clients.
This partnership also means I now have an office in downtown Raleigh, NC! Chuck Hester Enterprises, and our parent company The Affinity Allliance, Inc. will be co-located at Media Two’s offices at 319 West Martin Street.
Here’s the news release announcing the partnership:
Raleigh, North Carolina (March 1, 2011) — Media Two Interactive, an advertising agency specializing in strategic planning, buying and design of digital and traditional media., and Chuck Hester Enterprises, a marketing communications consultancy, today announced a partnership to strengthen both firms’ capabilities.
Through the partnership, Media Two looks to bolster its commitment to its marketing mix by providing in-house expertise in the traditional public relations field.
“This is really a strategic play at two levels,” said Michael Hubbard, CEO of Media Two Interactive. “Media Two has been on the forefront of this industry for quite some time, but we’ve never taken the time to tell anyone. Second, our Social Media team frequently comes across situations that are more geared towards traditional public relations, and Chuck represents an in-house consultation for when those arise.”
The “forefront” of an industry is an understatement for the Southeast’s well-kept secret. This 25-person shop, headquartered in the downtown warehouse district of Raleigh, NC, was the first advertising agency to beta test Google advertising before the popular AdWords program was launched, their Creative Director led the IAB committee charged with the standardization of banner sizes, and their Media Director released one of the first correlation studies on display advertising’s effect on Search Advertising.
“I couldn’t ask for a better partner in Media Two Interactive,” added Chuck Hester, Managing Partner of the Affinity Alliance, Inc. and Chief Connections Officer at Chuck Hester Enterprises. “Their team is the best in digital advertising and design. The firm will be a great addition to our service offerings. I truly believe in working with people who are the best at what they do, and who care about getting real world results for their clients. Media Two definitely fits that description.”
As part of the partnership agreement, Chuck Hester Enterprises will have offices at the Media Two headquarters at 319 W. Martin Street, located on the 2nd Floor, Raleigh, NC 27601.
