Creativity without objective orientation doesn’t work. At Guess What we develop clear and oriented strategies so that target audiences understand the message and can then replicate them to a broader audience. 

Results

We are a communication agency totally focused on results. We are determined, obsessed and strongly fight for what we believe in. It’s imperative for us to fulfil all the projects' objectives.

Methodology
1
We communicate differently
“Are you talking to me?”

Getting someone's attention is the beginning of every relationship. Sometimes a whisper is more impactful than a shout. Volume won't matter if your story isn't compelling and relevant.

2
We communicate with relevance
“I’m listening”

You've got their attention. This is where decisions are made, so what you say - and how you say it - needs to resonate and penetrate the customer's conscience. If successful, they'll take positive action.

3
We promote contact and institutional relations
“Hello this is interesting to me”

You've hit the jackpot. Customers are now engaging directly with your brand, gaining knowledge and experience. We've done everything possible to drive a positive outcome, but now they are behind the wheel.

4
We develop evaluation processes
“What happened?”

Customers now get to evaluate their relationship with your brand. Did it deliver on the promise? Did it disappoint? We need to get answers that will provide insight into our customer's assessment of the brand.

5
We create ambassadors
“It is worth it.”

Now comes the defining moment. Customers share their experience, carrying the brand forward to people we could never reach. It is important to forge a partnership with our most loyal customers who are our best advocates that we denote as “evangelists”.

Clients
Testemonials

The Guess What communication team is composed of some of the most brilliant professionals that I've met. They are creative, dynamic and entrepreneurial. With only these qualities, they would already be great PR’s but there’s another characteristic that takes them to a whole other level: seriousness. They never lie to journalists. They may not tell you everything they know but they never deceive. And that is what makes them excellent professionals.

Working with Guess What is like having a partner that can understand us and show us paths. Like in all activities, what really counts and makes the difference are the people. In my case, whenever I needed, they were always there for me with all the availability and professionalism at my disposal. Now, more than ever, we need companies that walk with us in order to help us achieve our objectives that they also adopt. And that is exactly what happens at Guess What.

Working with Guess What is knowing that we can count with a team of highly skilled, creative and dedicated professionals with a passion for what they do.

The partnership between Biogen Idec and Guess What allowed to elevate news mediation to a very uncommon level within the pharmaceutical industry specially considering that we are a biotech company focused on one therapeutic area: multiple sclerosis. The proactivity on choosing the best activities, the quality of contents provided and the selection of the right media are the strong characteristics of Guess What and the reasons for the success of this partnership.
