Brand Affinity Starts Here.
Successful brands are clear on who they are and why they exist (brand identity), possess a signature look (visuals design), make purposeful and revenue-driving decisions (strategic planning), and create an emotional connection with their customers (experiential events).
That emotional connection with your customers is called brand affinity.
It’s when your customers adore you, can’t live without you, will wait in line for you, and are avid advocates of your greatness. They aspire to the lifestyle your brand represents.
Think Apple, Jordan, Starbucks. THIS is where you belong, and we exist to help propel you there.
How To Get Started
Website Design Satisfaction
DeAnna is PHENOMENAL! An absolute pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with her again!
Excellent Expo Results
We hired The Affinity Group for an expo and the results were amazing. We worked with DeAnna, and she made sure that weeks leading up to the expo we were in constant contact making sure that everything that our company needed to accomplish before the expo was being taken care of. She helped with picking out the overall theme of our booth for the expo and it turned out to be a hit with the patrons! The day of the expo she arrived a day early and went over everything to make sure things ran smoothly. We were amazed at her attention to detail when it came to things such as the way our product was hanging on the racks. She thought of ideas to make our booth stand out that we did not even think of beforehand, adding the final touches. All in all we were very satisfied with our experience and will gladly hire this company again!
Will Work With DeAnna and Team Anytime, Anywhere
DeAnna and her team are great and they get the event job done, no matter the size. I’ll work with DeAnna anytime, anywhere. She has a great attitude and cares about her events. Looking forward to the next one!
The Affinity Group Has the Right Touch
DeAnna McIntosh is truly a professional when it comes to putting together an event with just the RIGHT people in just the RIGHT venue. She coordinated a Brunch & Learn event at a new downtown Fort Lauderdale Bar and Grill that was IDEAL for the topic we wanted to discuss (Financial Literacy) with the target audience I wanted: Young, Professional Up-and-Coming Millennials! The atmosphere was appropriate. The conversation was on-point and we all walked away feeling good about the experience. The Affinity Group has the right touch! Thanks, DeAnna.
