SB&A logo

With more than 31 years of experience and knowledge, SB&A Integrated Marketing and its affiliate company Brooks Adams Research have helped hundreds of Mature Market clients nationwide with a comprehensive array of services.

SB&A utilizes a systematic approach to integrated marketing. First, we assess key services that our clients need without regard to traditional definitions of an “advertising agency” or a “marketing consulting firm.” When we know a service is important to a client’s success, we either offer that service or collaborate with partners who do. SB&A’s core services include sales, consulting, marketing and brand strategy, events, advertising, public relations and Web-based/interactive disciplines. Beyond our core services we provide connections with a wide array of partners in architecture, finance and development.

Brooks Adams Research offers the full spectrum of quantitative and qualitative research to track changing consumer preferences and trends. Employing numerous data resources to provide the most accurate analysis of information, and informed by our extensive experience in the senior living field, we ask the right questions—and find real answers. Our online consumer research panel includes more than 130,000 members and offers clients a unique opportunity to gain insights into their consumers while allowing us to track trends and perform studies that keep us ahead of the curve.

Our companies have worked successfully with numerous retirement communities—with both for-profit and not-for-profit sponsors—on a variety of projects including Active Adult developments; CCRC, rental and Assisted Living communities; nursing centers; technology-based care; and home- and community-based services.

Each market and project is unique and requires our team to think creatively in order to develop innovative solutions. We benefit from working in markets nationwide with numerous partners, but pride ourselves in understanding each client’s unique assets and challenges. Visit SB&A on the web by clicking here.
