Simply put, echo builds communities around entertainment brands. We then leverage the power of those communities to benefit the audience, our clients and their partners. Using the web as a central hub, we connect the artists and their fans as well as the fans to each other by extending the brand to every area of their lives. As a result, those fans become more passionate evangelists, solidifying not only their loyalty to the brand, but also spreading the word to their friends, families and even total strangers. Using our unique blend of strategy, creativity and technology, we give the audience that sense of connection by engaging, entertaining and informing them. Like our process, our people are both analytical and inspired; both experienced and revolutionary. They are the best in the business because they believe in both the unquantifiable passion of fans and the amazing revelations of data. They are scientists. They are rock stars. They are matchmakers.
