3 Ways We Help


Building Value Before
An Acquisition

In our experience, good marketing and branding can add millions of dollars to a company’s valuation in the months and years leading up to a potential acquisition. How do we know? Because we’ve done it.

If your company is targeting acquisition in the next 6-months to 3-years, there’s a good chance that a strong branding and marketing campaign with Echo-Factory could be one of the best investments you could make.


Merging Two Brands
Together, Successfully

Mergers and acquisitions represent tremendous opportunities for growth. But when the marketing and messaging around those events is handled poorly, you can lose significant value.

We’ve developed a proven, research-driven process that analyzes each company’s history, market-presence, customer-needs and internal culture. We use that data to create winning branding, marketing and messaging that unifies the two companies as one. The result a strong, positive market-presence that serves as a launchpad for future growth.


Driving Growth After
an M&A Event

Most M&A events are driven by the promise of future growth. But, many marketing agencies don’t have the relevant experience to drive, and support that growth.

We do.

For more than a decade, we’ve been helping companies who have recently gone through M&A events realize the true-potential of their new market presence and capabilities, and navigate unexpected challenges. You won’t find a better, more-experienced or more capable marketing partner to support and drive your post M&A growth.

Some Examples

Joining Two of an Industry’s Strongest Brands, Into One

When two strong, equally matched former competitors with broad market-presences come together, how do you move forward? In our case, the answer is interviewing hundreds of employees, customers and partners to gather data, and then launching a new brand with a new name that brings together the best of both worlds.

LA’s Most Recognized Sports Docs Join LA’s Most Prestigious Hospital System

You might know Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedics as the doctors who take care of the Rams, Kings, Angels and Galaxy, or the group that invented Tommy John surgery. You might know Cedars Sinai as the hospital where LA’s most prominent citizens turn when they need medical help. When the two came together, they turned to us.

A Globe-Spanning Partnership

Two Aerospace distribution giants, one with American and one with European roots, came together through an acquisition. But, how do you present that partnership to their customers, employees and the world? How do you meld two very different cultures into one? It’s a question we were thrilled to help answer.
