SAN DIEGO, CA – FEBRUARY 9, 2010 – Milwaukee Motorcycle Clothing (MMC) has chosen Jacob Tyler Creative Group as their official agency of record. MMC, a subsidiary of Carroll Leather Company, a 40-year-old family-owned business, specializing in sales of leather apparel and furniture, currently grosses over $10 million sales annually through wholesale distribution channels.
Jacob Tyler has been tasked by MMC to develop a national retail brand and robust online presence that will create the company’s brand recognition and equity among consumers in retail and mass market. Jacob Tyler will be responsible for all brand strategy and execution of marketing collateral starting with the design of their E-commerce Web site. Phase 1 of the project will include Web 2.0 look and feel, messaging, on-site search engine optimization, and social media strategy. Phase 2 will include both online interactive campaigns as well as offline advertising campaigns.
“There is no question that Harley Davidson has market share in apparel for motorcycle clothing right now in the cruiser category. We understand we are not going to beat Harley in this industry, but we will certainly increase MMC’s brand equity and apparel sales. We’ll do this by developing the voice and messaging for the brand that creates brand personality and showcases their high-quality products,” said Les Kollegian, Partner and Interactive Creative Director at Jacob Tyler. “The creative team has personally tested products from MMC alongside products from Harley Davidson, and to our surprise, we all agree that the difference in quality is immediately apparent.”
“We chose Jacob Tyler as our official agency of record because we were attracted to their breadth of creative and strategic services, as well as their ability to grow and cultivate brands,” said Brent Lawrence, VP of Marketing at Milwaukee Motorcycle Clothing. “We had interviewed several firms but were most pleased with Jacob Tyler’s experience and branding professionals. JTCG was exactly what we were looking for to build our retail brand and strengthen our overall sales.”
