Why we are Communication Evolved
Virtuacomm was born out of the vision to fix what we believe are inadequate business models for solving today’s communication problems. These inadequacies exist both in traditional marketing/advertising/communications firms and in new-media firms such as website designers and developers.
The Virtuacomm Virtual Model
Virtuacomm’s virtual model offers clients substantial benefits:
- Business Agility™
- Senior talent at attractive rates
- Stable relationships
- Lean, green, and responsive
Business agility means being able to predict, adapt to, and be proactive to changes in the business environment. Virtuacomm helps clients:
- Be customer-centric and adapt to meet their customer’s changing needs
- Deal with the pace of change in business
- Take advantage of other innovative business partnerships like Virtuacomm
Virtuacomm account teams are assembled to satisfy the unique needs of each client. Depending on the challenge, we bring together the specific talents required for the project. As your needs change, the team makeup may also change. Without the need to keep ill-suited employees busy to justify their payroll, Virtuacomm can engage the best talent for each role.
Many companies who use traditional communication firms expect to be served by senior management – if not the owners themselves. Instead, clients often pay for junior staff, occasionally supervised by seniors. Furthermore, the clients' bills often reflect not only the services they get, but also a share of agency office overhead, benefits, and other operational expenses.
With lower overhead, Virtuacomm combines the experience and business acumen of seasoned professionals at substantially lower rates than those charged by traditional agencies. Companies looking to maximize their budgets get more expertise, for less cost, with Virtuacomm.
Turnover among lower and midlevel staff at traditional agencies can be high. For clients, this means that their account teams can change frequently, with new individuals joining the mix and having to spend precious time and resources getting up to speed.
We understand and value the importance of stability in our relationship with our clients. In Virtuacomm’s model, clients work with a Director (owner) who engages other Directors to help with specific tasks.
Most of Virtuacomm’s team members came from larger agencies located in the Houston area. We have effectively learned each other's strengths, how to use each other as sounding boards, sharing responsibilities for strategic planning and tactical execution - but without the typical office politics and bureaucratic hierarchies.
Virtuacomm is committed to ensuring outstanding customer service and innovative partnerships with our clients. We take a multidimensional approach to staying in contact with our clients.
Most of our clients prefer us to come to them, so we maintain a minimal physical office space, suitable for occasional in-person meetings. And we employ on-line project collaboration, desktop sharing, and other web and mobile technologies to increase our responsiveness and maintain an office virtually anywhere we need to be. These methods often allow our team members to save time and reduce travel by working from their preferred locations.
