Small St. Louis Agency Wins Big at 2023 Global Industry Competitions

(St. Louis, MO) alpha | BRAVO, a B2B marketing agency, was awarded a Platinum MARCOM in the Achievement category for their Team’s Body of Work Achievement. MARCOM’s Platinum Award is presented to entries judged to be among the most outstanding in the competition. Platinum Winners are recognized for their excellence in terms of quality, creativity, and resourcefulness. About 17 percent won this award.

Post-pandemic, the small agency was acquired by a global B2B content marketing agency as the social media arm of the business. After one year, however, co-founders Beth Newton and Aaron Newton felt the two cultures were not aligned, and the agencies parted ways amicably. Starting fresh in July 2022, alpha | BRAVO found its niche working with enterprise and mid-market brands offering social media and content strategy, organic and paid social media consulting and management, and Executive social media Thought Leadership. The agency adopted a “theater model” with a bench of seasoned marketing contractors, added several enterprise B2B tech clients including Informatica, BDO Digital, and General Datatech, to its roster, and increased annual revenue by an impressive 59% in just 12 months. CEO Beth Newton was invited to join Chief, a private membership network focused on connecting and supporting women executive leaders. She also regularly contributes articles on marketing strategy and leadership to both Entrepreneur and Forbes.

In addition to the MARCOM award, alpha | BRAVO was also recognized by MUSE Creative Awards with three Platinum Agency of the Year Awards: Best Social Media Agency, Best Small Agency, and Best Independent Agency. They were also honored with a Silver MUSE Award for Best Paid Social Media Campaign.

“We’re thrilled to have our work recognized by these prestigious organization,” said CEO Beth Newton. “It’s proof that our decision to remain independent was the right one, and it’s exciting to see our work speak for itself.”

Other MARCOM and MUSE award winners included Leo Burnett, Razorfish, Proctor & Gamble, The Walt Disney Company, and Mastercard.

“The winners of this season are undoubtedly some of the best talents the industry has to offer,” said Thomas Brandt, spokesperson of IAA. “These professionals and creatives demonstrate how those who pursue excellence will always thrive, regardless of the changes their industries go through.”
