Agency recognized in the
B2B Demand Generation Agency category

MILWAUKEE – Dec. 21, 2018 – Nelson Schmidt Inc. (NS), a full-service, independent marketing communications agency with offices in Milwaukee and Madison, has been named as one of America’s top 200 marketing agencies in the Chief Marketer 200 for the second year in a row. Chief Marketer 200 is the world’s first and only comprehensive list of the best engagement and activation agencies across 11 categories and specialties serving the U.S.

According to Chief Marketer, today’s marketer relies on a toolkit of new technologies that emphasize engagement and experiences above advertising techniques that merely talk to, rather than with, the customer. The Chief Marketer 200 serves as an invaluable resource for marketers seeking to engage the right partners to help them craft meaningful, and measurable, campaigns and strategies. The list, released on December 17, recognizes the best engagement and activation agencies across 11 categories and specialties. NS was recognized in the B2B Demand Generation Agency category.

“All of us at Nelson Schmidt are honored to be included again in the second annual Chief Marketer 200 list of the best marketing agencies in America,” said Dan Nelson, Jr., president and CEO. “Our pioneering work focused on helping marketers build more effective campaigns that deliver customers making highly considered purchases continues to differentiate our agency from the thousands of agencies that have put more focus on traditional advertising to consumers making impulse buys in non-durable CPG or FMCG categories.”

Of nearly 1,000 agencies that applied, the Chief Marketer 200 were selected by Chief Marketer’s editors following submissions of high caliber, consistent work across programs and clients. The agencies were assessed based on several criteria including: client testimonials, innovative case studies, and bold concepts and ideas that are moving the industry. The agencies selected are considered thought leaders and represent the best in the marketing industry.
