Topturn Capital

Dare To Be Different

Messaging

A company's value proposition is the anchor for all marketing. It concisely describes why the company is different and why someone should pay attention to them. The tone and style of the value proposition should match the culture and creative footprint of the company.

 

 

Value Proposition

We molded Topturn’s Value Proposition behind the brand, the voice, the identity of the company as a whole. Their name isn’t solely a ‘top turn’ in surfing, it is also reflective of their method and approach to investing.

Branding

Topturn had recently undergone a rebrand. We helped to extend that rebrand beyond the name and logo by integrating video, a new website, tailored email marketing campaigns and public relations.

VALUE PROPOSITION

A surfer executes a top turn at the crest of a wave to re-position himself back into the momentum of the moving water. The ability to execute a top turn relies on the surfer processing thousands of seemingly unrelated factors, all of which come together into what people perceive to be innate ability, when in reality is a construct of process, practice, and experience.

Topturn Capital is an asset manager with an investment process that parallels this analogy. We invest with a fluidity and confidence that appears instinctual, however, everything we do is pinned to logic, systematic analysis, and hard work.

“Nobody accidentally watches two minutes of a video.”

Videos bring a message to life, a strategy to a face, a logo to a team. Meyler Capital's approach to marketing called 'Sonar Profiling', generates a type of relateability that is more impactful than any marketing deck, email or brochure. 

Going with Topturn's branding, why not bring a professional surfer into the mix?

 

Website

Everyone says, "don't judge a book by its cover", but that's just not realistic.

The website is one of the first things potential clients will look at to do their research. You want people to gain interest into your company, not lose it over a neglected website design. 

It only makes sense then, to display your sophistication and understanding of your trade in an aesthetic, design-forward format. We brought together Topturn's brand, story, strategic overview and custom imagery into a clean, responsive.

Email Marketing

Email marketing offers a view into the relevance of your database, who is actually interested in what you have to say, and frankly, whether the content you're pushing out is working. We focused on clean, colorful and more image-heavy design, as well as minimal campaign primarily to generate traction to their blog.

 

Marketing Deck

 

 

Nobody has the time to read a 30+ page marketing deck.

They are supposed to get potential clients or investors excited and initiate conversations. Don't say the same thing everyone else seems to say and present information in a design-forward format with minimal, straightforward language.

Leaders of the pack

Topturn was a great example of a client that, at first, was a bit hesitant to go against the grain, be a little bit louder and stand out a part from the rest. We incorporated their bright blues, beautiful custom imagery, and crisp typography to the mix. But most importantly, we minimized the generic language, added some edge and only incorporated what was absolutely important.

The end result? An enticing 10 page marketing deck. 

 

Marketing Collateral

Oftentimes, many companies eschew the importance of marketing collateral - printed materials, leave-behinds etc. These pieces, if executed properly, can have a huge impact on how potential investors will remember your company, your brand, your conversations.  

We worked with Topturn to create an enticing leave-behind brochure, staying inline with the branding and using original artwork by uber-talented photographer Joe Curren

 

Public Relations

A lot of companies neglect to hire a PR firm writing it off as an easy way to spend money and not see any results.  Topturn Capital is an enormous piece of evidence that when you stand out, hiring a PR firm is one of the most powerful moves you can make.

Sure, Topturn Capital caught the first gust of wind heading out of the start gates with the ratification of the JOBS Act, but we also helped them tell their story with a professional public relations campaign, to help get their brand and efforts noticed. 

And boy, did they get noticed.
