We’ve made lives better for veterans

 

CLIENT: Department of Veterans Affairs, United States of America

 

In 2009, the US Department of Veterans Affairs was tasked with communicating the benefits of the new Post 9/11 GI Bill. The benefits were great but VA was unable to effectively communicate it to veterans and their families. By establishing an awareness campaign for these benefits, Rhubarb Media, along with it’s U.S. partner, American Independent Media, were able to increase benefit applications by 45%. Along with some amazing U.S. partners we helped re-brand and market the Post 9/11 GI BILL. From helping with branding to advertising to video to websites to executing the creative for an entire NASCAR event, Rhubarb Media and team delivered!

American Independent Media was instrumental in creating a now-iconic brand for the GI Bill. The Department of Veterans Affairs worked with AIM to conduct a national marketing campaign to promote the greatest expansion of education benefits since World War Two. Through AIM’s support we conducted a national advertising campaign, NASACAR race weekend, and brand promotion strategy for the Post-9/11 GI Bill<sup>®</sup> from 2010 to 2015. All were successful in establishing a nationally recognized brand and increasing in the number of people using the GI Bill. The employees I worked with at AIM were some of the most professional individuals I’ve had the pleasure of work with. They were inspired and dedicated to their craft. AIM’s leadership team was always willing to go the extra mile and work tirelessly for a product that met our needs. Simply put, the GI Bill would not enjoy the recognition by the public today without AIM.

I wanted to take an opportunity to tell you what a pleasure it was working with you on the Post-9/11 GI  Bill.  It’s so hard to believe how long ago that was now.  I continue to be amazed at the great work everyone did on all the projects we under took as part of the implementation –  no small thanks owed to you and your team for all your support.  It truly felt like a team effort.

Empowering a family to grow their business

Background

EthoSolar is an Ontario-wide solar power provider. Since 2009 they have installed nearly 7 MW of complete grid-tied solar PV applications for roof mount systems, ground mount fixed systems, and tracking systems. They have developed high-quality, 360 degree solar PV solutions for Net Metering, microFIT and FIT programs within the Ontario market. It is their committment to provide each customer with the system that best fits their particular needs. At EthoSolar, a family run business, they are dedicated to making your investment in clean, renewable energy as profitable and seamless as possible.

How we helped

Ken and Geri Rounds came to us with a homemade logo, a brochure and a great vision to help farmers and ranchers use their property year ’round to produce energy and offer a future revenue stream.

In 2009 Rhubarb partnered with EthoSolar to establish a strong presence in this new marketing through naming, branding, research, communications plan, web, marketing materials, social media marketing, video and photography.

We are proud to be a part of their success going from startup to a million dollar operation in just two years.
