Frances Roy takes an all-encompassing approach to client customer service, and we compliment it with a full-service offering of marketing support organized under our four core services. 

The four core services Frances Roy provides are Strategy, Design, Digital, and Media. You may have heard the old adage that a goal without a plan is only a dream. Likewise, a marketing effort without a strategy is only a wish. That’s why at Frances Roy, every client relationship and project begins with Strategy. Strategy dictates the Design, Digital and Media elements that will be required to achieve your specific business objectives. Strategy is the foundation for every effort and decision we make on clients’ behalf because we are committed to delivering the results you want. 

Clients rely on Frances Roy for all types of marketing assistance, and often for help with other business needs beyond what is traditionally considered marketing support. We love analytics as much as anyone – a favorite saying is “data or it didn’t happen!” That said, the KPI we rely most heavily on is client satisfaction. Because of our passion for serving our clients, the Frances Roy team will always go above and beyond to help you achieve your organization’s goals, regardless if it is part of our four core services.
