THE ESTABLISHMENT AND REFINEMENT OF AN EFFECTIVE CORPORATE BRAND IS VERY IMPORTANT IN SEVERAL WAYS:
It helps to manage customers' and other key audiences' perceptions of your company.
It works to distinguish your company and your products from your competition.
It reflects the level of quality customers want and expect from you.
It increases your company's perceived value.
SEO is a long-term process whose implementation sees ROI typically after a couple of months after go-live and continues to bring effective results as the site ages. It is especially effective with continued maintenance, including regular publishing of relevant content.
After Initial SEO implementation, Chiral Technologies saw a jump in Active Users almost immediately.
After Initial SEO implementation, year-over-year, Anasazi Instruments increased their Organic Search by nearly 20% and Goal Conversions by over 5%.

The relationship between CordenPharma and Advanta Advertising began in 2011. Since that time, Advanta has provided the company with a variety of marketing and design support, including: creating core messaging, trade show booth and graphic design, targeted email campaigns, among other projects.
Abby Thompson, Global Marketing Communications Manager, describes why she depends on Advanta, “Advanta has a very high level of customer service. I’m picky about every detail, and Stephanie and her team respect my needs and are able to create designs and messaging for our very complex business. Advanta is very reliable and can always meet my deadlines. I have also come to rely on and really appreciate the ideas that are brought to the table and how my perspective is highly respected.”
When CordenPharma hired Advanta, it had few internal marketing resources and the Advanta team was able to step in to provide much needed support. Abby explains, “In a large way, Advanta has solved our problem of limited resources by stepping in and being our partner. Stephanie and her team are there to help us tackle all the different things we need to do. They are there for us in every way – from trade shows to email campaigns – and I know that her team is capable of many other things. For example, if I needed a website created, I know they could handle that, too.”
The trade show booth that was initially developed in 2011 is still in use and, combined with an ongoing conference marketing campaign, has helped increase the company’s US brand recognition.

Advanta Advertising began working with Oakwood Chemical in 2012. The projects undertaken for Oakwood included the development of a new company name and comprehensive rebranding effort complete with logo, trade show support, online support, print advertising, and collateral development.
“I chose Advanta because I was impressed at the professionalism and experience. Stephanie works with me the way I work with my customers; when I need something, she drops everything and helps.

The work resulted in a new identity for the company that helped Oakwood evolve and attract new business. Greg added, “We used to look like a carnival and needed to streamline our look and find continuity. Stephanie completely changed our perspective on marketing and how to approach channels like print advertising, and marketing promotions. We now have a consistent brand that represents us perfectly and gets attention from both customers and competitors, alike. We just had a record year and we attribute it, in part, to our more professional approach to marketing.”
GREGORY E. BUTLER
Celimmune hired Advanta Advertising to create a unique, disruptive, brand identity; as industry pioneers in their field, it was important that their brand reflected their corporate strategy and innovative therapeutic approach. Celimmune turned to Advanta because of their conceptual creativity, industry knowledge, and overall professionalism.
Celimmune’s Executive Chairman, Ashleigh Palmer, explains why Celimmune selected Advanta over other potential agencies: “The Advanta team went above and beyond to deliver a high-quality branding solution that tells the story of Celimmune with custom illustrations which attract attention from patients, clinicians, and other stakeholders.”
Celimmune was impressed not only by Advanta’s outstanding customer service, but the creative process its team followed to conceptualize and develop a strategic full brand identity and expand that identity across Celimmune’s website, advertisements, and marketing collateral in an expedited timeframe.
Palmer further emphasized: “Celimmune wanted to use art as a means to express strategic creativity, therapeutic disruption, and patient-centricity, three of the company’s core values. Advanta delivered on all its goals through a creative process that was fun, yet methodical and rigorous.”
The folks at Advanta have been a true partner and a delight to work with from the start. OncoViRx is a start-up drug discovery company with a great need for top-quality corporate marketing support, but with a very limited budget. Advanta has delivered in spades by keeping our marketing needs consistent and cost-effective. Key projects have included developing our corporate logo, business cards, PowerPoint presentation, stationery set, and designing, developing, and hosting our company’s website. I have enthusiastically recommended Advanta to other young biopharma companies in the Philadelphia area since we began working together, and plan to continue my recommendations for the foreseeable future.
CEO & President
There are website development companies, and then there are full-service branding and interactive companies that see the big picture. This was our experience with the team at Advanta Advertising. After having the pleasure of discussing our branding and website challenges and needs with Stephanie at our booth at Pittcon in 2016, she came back to us with a comprehensive, yet thoughtful proposal that covered everything that we needed to help grow our business from a phased approach; without including things that we did not need. We weren’t sure where to start, so at our first meeting they came to us with various options and approaches to what they could do for us. They showed us many draft layouts, rebuilt the ideas based on our input, and combined our ideas with their professionalism to create exactly what we were looking for. We would recommend working with them to everyone, not only for their creativity and talent, but also their approach with their clients.
Effortlessly and quickly Advanta became an extension of our team at Entytle, guiding us seamlessly through the entire process of our website development from brand evolution, core messaging, content development, user experience, and interface design, from start to launch.
Entytle highly recommends Advanta Advertising for a no-nonsense, highly effective and value-driven brand message, visual design, website and SEO strategy that makes a measurable difference to our new business development process and customer perception.

ALLIANCE CONTRACT PHARMA
Steph from Advanta approached us during a trade show. What was so unique about our initial experience with Steph, and quite foretelling of our future relationship, was the work that Steph and her group had already put in to reviewing our current website and offering key updates in our initial meeting. It was easy for us to see the attention to detail we were going to receive as Advanta’s client and ACP quickly partnered with Advanta.
We have partnered with Advanta for 7 months and have had one of the best experiences in updating our brand and website. Not only has Advanta provided leading edge design in our re-branding efforts, they have taken the time to learn our business and what is important to ACP.
They are quick to respond, excellent at helping us understand what is important, precise on the timeline and a complete overall joy to work alongside. I would extremely recommend Advanta to anyone who is looking for any marketing, branding, website design or PR help. Thanks for the great job Steph!

Two years later, my company has grown by quantum leaps, adding new services and targeting new segments. Stephanie has walked with us the entire time, and even if it's simply brainstorming with her for a new facet to our marketing campaign, her energy and unswerving dedication have left indelible marks on my business.
