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.

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.

Robo Slop

Harvard Business Review (HBR) is at it again. That's right. It gives me no pleasure to report that its esteemed editors saw fit to run a piece of banal baloney called, "Robo-Advisers Are Coming to Consulting and Corporate Strategy". It resisted all attempts at charity...

Simulated Anesthesia

Simulated Anesthesia I happened to see a posting the other day for a series of training sessions on Simulated Anesthesia. At first, I assumed the sessions were intended to teach the uninitiated and the still-interesting how to conduct corporate meetings, since the...

Gas Neutrality

Gas Neutrality I'm absolutely livid. But before I tell you why, here's the back story: When I came back from Woodstock, I was appalled to realize how much money I'd spent on gas. Nobody made me go. And nobody made me spend the money. But I decided to tinker with the...
