ABOUT LEAP GROUP

"Market Less. Matter More." - that is LEAP Group's philosophy. We believe that to be effective, content and experiences must be relevant and meaningful to the audience for which it's intended. That's easy to understand, but much harder to deliver on. And even more important for our own marketing and content efforts.

LEAP Group is an independent network of wholly owned agencies. LEAP Group's consumer-centric, data-driven approach creates a seamless journey for customers across all digital, physical and virtual touch points. Our "Market Less. Matter More." point of view means we partner with brands to guide an informed strategy that truly makes them matter more to their audiences.

LEAP Group consists of four agencies: LEAP Agency, a full-service digital agency; LEAP Amp, a media and amplification agency; LEAP Matter, a branding and design agency; and LEAP Spark, a full-service production agency.

LEAP Group's internal marketing team helps "market our marketers." The role of the marketing team is to drive awareness, consideration, and leads for LEAP Group's four individual agencies, while elevating the LEAP Group brand. The team handles content creation (blogs, video, social media), thought leadership (Logic + Magic publication, whitepapers) website development and maintenance, and marketing/advertising campaigns for the four agencies and LEAP Group itself.
