Envoy is an advertising agency.
Not a marketing communications firm, or a consulting group or even a content-creation
Oh, we market and consult and create content all day long.
But we’re an advertising agency. –
Taxes, health care issues, access to capital… Small business owners face a host of challenges. Fortunately, for the Greater Omaha Chamber’s September Small Business of the Month, an “identity crisis” isn’t one of them. Envoy, Inc. is an Omaha-based advertising agency – period. Over the last 25 years, it’s developed a full array of services, including brand development, public and media relations, web design and development, social media and strategic planning.
“We’ve also developed a list of client partners on a local, regional and national scale and a fantastic team of employees who continually deliver creative, inspiring, fun and engaging solutions,” said Chris Doyle, Envoy’s president.
Envoy’s office space in northwest Omaha is relaxed and open, encouraging collaboration and creativity. Its customer service philosophy is founded on two core concepts – immersion and perspective.
“We know that immersing ourselves in our clients’ businesses is the best way to really get to know them, so we are organized to become an extension of our clients’ organizations,” Doyle explained.
He added, “As a third-party we can give our clients the unvarnished perspective they need to evaluate opportunities, identify their challenges and out-think their competition. We pride ourselves on continual evaluation of every aspect of our efforts and our clients’ products and services so that together we can create a stronger, more effective offering that will succeed in today’s marketplace.”
The Envoy team consists of 19 employees, experts in marketing, media buying, writing, production and design. Clients include Boys Town, First Data, Hiland Dairy, Max I. Walker, the Nebraska Family Helpline and Westside Community Schools. The agency also does pro bono work for a number of nonprofits, including St. Robert Bellarmine Parish, Omaha Advertising Expo (OAX) and Ronald McDonald House.
“At the end of the day, we are in a business of building relationships – relationships between Envoy and our clients, and our clients and their customers. We want to work with people who enjoy working with us. And what makes for happy clients? Results, a good working relationship, creative ideas and solid implementation,” Doyle said.
Envoy also values its relationship with the Greater Omaha Chamber.
“We share a love for our city and a drive to continually improve our economy and business environment,” Doyle said. “We also believe that the Chamber activities allow us to interact with others in the area who want to improve our way of living here in the heartland which, ultimately, will be driven by a healthy, thriving business community.”
Over the years, Envoy employees have participated in a number of Chamber programs such as Greater Omaha Young Professionals, Leadership Omaha and Chamber Academies.
