WHAT WE DO

WHAT WE DO

The goal at Shimek Strategic is to help companies find that ‘best-fit’ firm without stress, wasted time or cash outflow. As the agencies cover any fees, our counsel for this service is at no cost to the company.

We have worked in nearly every industry and with clients ranging from Mattel, Disney and Nordstrom to Logitech, Waze and Salesforce. This includes assisting venture capital firms and their portfolio companies.

We know what makes an agency really stand out and excel as a true partner: It comes down to the agency’s industry knowledge, a true belief and interest in the client, and the chemistry shared between the client and agency team members.

Be it paid search, experiential, high quality content production, or full ad campaign complete with media, we can help.

At any given time we are helping a number of companies around the world find the right PR partner at the appropriate budget within a precise industry sector.

Crisis? Based upon your unique situation, we introduce you to highly-qualified people who can assist... quickly.

Social, and quite often, influencer relations, is now an integral part of marketing communications campaigns. We can help you find a dedicated social and/or influencer partner; OR, if you have a multifaceted program, we can match you with an integrated firm.

Information is everything. We have partners that can help at the outset of a campaign through comprehensive research.
Other partners possess some of the most advanced analytics tools in the industry providing exceptional insights and reports.

As we advise ~200 companies per year, imagine with how many individuals we speak across any number of sectors and disciplines.
We work with incredible talent and know amazing companies, and we’re happy to make introductions.

You may have several disciplines or geographies across which you need to enlist an agency partner. Do you hire a single partner that works across several specialties or do you select 2-3 agencies and/or consultants that are specialists? If your remit covers multiple nations, is it best to hire a single larger firm or a local partner in each region? We can advise.
