Located at the epicenter of Vancouver’s burgeoning digital technology hub, Elevator is a proudly Canadian, fiercely independent communications firm providing data informed, technology inspired and creatively focused solutions for purpose driven brands. Elevator has also become a conduit to the local arts, music and creative community, hosting Up@Elevator events intended to inform, inspire and connect clients and collaborators, here and around the world.
Digitally fingerprinting the consumer — personalizing the communication — and delivering that germane message where and when that audience is most receptive — data is at the core of what Elevator offers. It began by partnering with Marketo, a global leader in automated marketing solutions. And has since been deeply enriched by the acquisition of one Western Canada’s most respected media planning and buying companies, bringing in house new proprietary research tools, partnerships and invaluable analysis expertise.
Elevator has invested in an in-house, start-up laboratory. Leading Innovation for Tomorrow or LIFT for short, fosters entrepreneurs in the development of emerging technologies, partnering to ensure the market success of that innovation. Elevator is also aligned with the internationally recognized Centre For Digital Media. Each of these alliances position Elevator's clients at the vanguard of technological discovery, arming them with the capability to market their message in ways never, before imagined.
More and more, consumers are compelled by a company’s beliefs and its brand culture, rather than just product attributes or price. Helping clients understand what their consumers and stakeholders care about and then defining and articulating a distinctively compelling brand purpose will deepen their company’s mission and assure a thriving and enduring enterprise. Corporate citizenship and developing brands stewarded with purpose has been integral to Elevator’s unique offering, industry success and agency culture since opening its doors 28 years ago.
