COMPANY HISTORY


MARCH Marketing was created because the shared affinity of military service is one of the most powerful bonds that exist in our society.  The power of that affinity and the combined strength of the 25 million who have served is largely untapped but represents many solutions to societal and business issues – far beyond those of just veterans.
The veterans who started MARCH sought to put organizations on notice to think hard about how they provide goods and services to veterans.  Also, MARCH filled a role to remind veterans of their inherent strength when they stick together to “awake the sleeping giant.”
This military and veteran insight is critical to the success of any program targeting those audiences – government, commercial, educational, employment, or charity. Without strong, insightful communications, the best-intended programs will fail.
The triggering event to start MARCH was a “Perfect Storm” of factors – the proliferation of programs and communications to and about military veterans in the commercial, government, and charity space as well as a surge of new entrants was serving to actually impair and not help military Veterans.  MARCH believes that convergence of programs and crisp, insightful communications are key to helping these military veteran families.
The mission of MARCH is to improve the lives of veteran and active-duty military families.  The work that MARCH does has a profound effect to directly help (and help others help) veterans.  Insightful programs and effective communications drive client success in serving veterans.  And a portion of the company’s bottom line every year goes back to help military veteran charities.
Twenty-five million living Americans, active, veteran and retired share a comradeship forged under the most challenging circumstances. The dynamics and challenges facing military and veteran families are the most unique of any time in history.
MARCH is the unique company, designed to meet and solve those challenges.
