Brand Management and Marketing Communication

We analyze your business, evaluate your brand and its differentiators, validate your value propositions, develop the most effective positioning strategy, create efficient communications tactics, and fully manage their execution.


We assess brands, identify competitors, determine target audience(s), catalog objectives, create plans for achieving those objectives, create programs and campaigns to tactically execute those plans, and provide the metrics for determining success and the means by which to measure it.

Here’s how we treat strategy.


Even the greatest strategy means nothing without tactical follow-through. That’s why we create everything from websites to to email campaigns, from blogs to web and print ads, from feature articles to social media programs. We keep our clients on the right track, and we make sure they keep moving.

Here’s how we determine tactics.

Our Clients

We’ve represented and continue to represent some of the most recognizable brands in insurance software and services. Acting as their de facto marketing departments, to date, we’ve positioned six of those brands effectively enough that they were acquired by other brands.

As with any relationship, the success of our relationship with the OCG team is attributable to the fact that we took the time to know and trust each other going in. After that, the success took care of itself.

CEO, Marias Technology

OCG helped us work through our brand strategically — from its identity and personality to its corporate mark and its graphic language. After establishing those underpinnings, they helped us position the brand and extend its communication tactically and effectively to multiple media.

Justin Silver

Co-Founder, Yodil, Inc

O’Brien Communications Group helped us achieve every one of our strategic and tactical objectives. And they did it all in just nine months. Thanks to their efforts, traffic has gone up on all our websites, and our new-business opportunities have increased.

I love the Internet because it's an endless source of mindless distraction. It's also a wonderful way to discover the mindless things with which other people distract themselves. One of my more recent discoveries is ASMR or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. I came...

Big Data is Bigger Than You Thought

I miss surprises. I really do. I feel a little bit sorry and a little bit nostalgic about the fact that things are becoming so increasingly obvious that it gets harder and harder to imagine — forget about trying to actually find — things that aren't completely...

I happened on a story on Medium the other day entitled, with disarming effusiveness, "Blue Lagoon Strategy — Carve your own niche!" Since I'm something of an amateur whittler, I thought I might be able to pick up a few tips on carving techniques, the best types of...
