9to5 Seating launches new brand campaign to underline its dedicated approach to providing quality and value to its customers, by ingraining the approach in every aspect of its operation.

The objective of the brand campaign is to communicate the company’s new tagline, “The difference is in the details” both internally and externally. 9to5 Seating worked with a Los Angeles boutique marketing agency to explore the company’s culture, mission, values and positioning. An internal brand campaign will be launched to staff, while consumers will experience a campaign that allows them to visualize the brand’s new tagline.

Dara Mir, President of 9to5 Seating said, “Our new company tagline emphasizes how 9to5 Seating is steadfastly committed, at every point in our operation, to provide the best quality and value for our customers. We believe that by sweating the small stuff and doing all the little things right, we’re able to offer a better chair at a better value. We think that’s pretty huge.”

This campaign follows the success of the latest advertising campaign, “The Secret is Out,” which focused on the unique company history, its vertical integration and reshoring priority of 9to5 Seating. The campaign was launched in Business of Furniture magazine and was also featured at this year’s NeoCon. The new brand campaign includes digital and social media promotion.

We had a great NeoCon and want to thank our staff and everyone who visited the showroom. NeoCon requires a lot of planning and work but our dedicated team helped bring it all together.

This year, we launched our “The Secret is Out” campaign and from the traffic in the showroom, we can tell the message was well received. We wanted showroom visitors to learn more about what makes up our secret: our unique story, our reshoring effort, the vertical integration of our manufacturing process, forward thinking in terms of design and operations, and, of course, our people.

From our showroom update, display of new 2018 products and updated 2017 products, brand video playing on the showroom monitors, launch of our brand new website and Chair Designer 2.0 the unique story and positioning of 9to5 Seating was definitely loud and clear!
