So Long 2018, You Were One To Remember!

As 2018 draws to a close, it’s time to reflect on the wonderful opportunities and experiences this year has brought us. To say the WJ team had a great year would be an understatement – in truth, it was INCREDIBLE! These past 365 or so days were filled with passion as we created new work for existing clients and welcomed new ones to the WJ family. We continued build our relationships and share our knowledge within the community, always striving not only to grow ourselves but give back where we can.

As we finish our 15th year in business, it’s been humbling to see how far we’ve come. 2018 has been one of our strongest years yet – we added an array of clients to our portfolio, eight new members to our team as well as two new satellite offices in Red Deer and Grande Prairie. At WJ we’ve made it a habit to look to the future and invest in our business as a way of bettering ourselves, and it has worked in our favour. In the spirit of bettering ourselves, we celebrated another Innovation Day at WJ – a day when our entire team from all offices got together to share marketing knowledge and bring new and fresh ideas from a variety of perspectives. We are truly grateful for all of the incredible people who are part of our WJ family, especially the clients and team who choose to work with us and make us stronger every day. You have made us who we are, and we thank you for that.

The past year, we also saw some amazing moments and milestones come our way. This summer, we witnessed our value system come full circle when the WJ logo emblazoned a chuckwagon tarp at the Calgary Stampede. It was in those few minutes, when our driver, Jordie Fike, raced his team of thoroughbreds around the track, that we knew we here at WJ were on the right track too. Seemingly foreshadowing big things to come, we also had the pleasure of working with the Red Deer and District Chamber of Commerce and Westerner Park to rebrand the Canadian Finals Rodeo and bring awareness of its new home in Red Deer. To close off the year, we were honoured with a nomination for the ATB Small Business of the Year Award. These are just a few moments that have made 2018 one for us to remember forever.

Throughout the year, we continued to build our community with the power of knowledge by releasing yet another edition of the WJ magazine. We also hosted regular WJU sessions in all our home cities to help share valuable strategic marketing information with marketing professionals and business owners alike. We will continue to do so in 2019. As we mentioned, marketing is our passion, and we will always be in the business of making our community strong.

In summary, 2018 brought incredible momentum to WJ and we cannot wait to see what the next year has in store for us. Together as one team, we will continue to better ourselves and our community, and embody the values upon which WJ was built on. They have taken us this far, and they will continue to propel us forward.

We know you’re also looking ahead to 2019, so let’s work together and create something remarkable this coming year. Give us a call.

It's only fair to share...

We were doing a little bit of cleaning up before the new year and found the ULTIMATE hashtag#TBT - our first piece of promotional material ever created 16 years ago.
We may have come a LONG way since then, but it’s clear that we’ve always remained true to the mission and values. https://t.co/lVor71DM96

Despite learning from the ongoing ebbs and flows of the economy, businesses always seem to fall into a pattern of cutting their marketing budgets when times get tough. While cutting excess spending to keep afloat is crucial during tough times, research (and experience) has shown us that cutting all marketing initiatives will do more harm than good in the long run.

Times are tough. Learn how to use marketing effectively to help your bottom line rather than hurt it.
