Everything we do has to move the needle, or we can’t justify it to our clients.

Nic Ricketts


1st Objective works in B2B and B2C, helping brands launch products and services. Through clear communication, we create understanding and opportunities, both within their channel and among their employees.

Japanese cars, household paint, mobile handsets, money transfer… our clients’ offerings are as varied as they are similar in their objectives.

Our approach is to develop brands from a customer-centric viewpoint, continually speaking to target audiences and facilitating sales, building empathy, loyalty and differentiation.

Our process takes the form of phased engagement – discovery through to brand strategy built on business objectives, and then implementation. Continuous assessment and review keep strategy, budgets and targets on track.

We put ourselves in the shoes of the audience you are trying to reach.



There are four main areas where we engage to add value.

Internally, for morale and team working

To prospects, lowering your cost of acquisition

With customers, to encourage referrals

To investors or for M&A, to increase company value

Our 1st Objective is the same as yours
