Changing Minds, Giving Hope:
Introducing a new campaign
for  New England Cancer Specialists

Our new "Changing Minds" :30 TV spot tells how innovation is giving more cancer patients a chance of "victory" instead of "survival".
In May, we began working with an organization that has been doing the best work in their field for even longer than we have: New England Cancer Specialists. From three offices in Southern Maine, they treat more Mainers with cancer than any other practice. Their oncologists come from all corners of the world, and their partnerships in Boston and beyond keep them in the forefront of cancer care. At the same time, they recognize the importance of emotional support and personal attention to their patients' health.

In November, we introduced a new television campaign, mirrored in print and digital ads, conveying the range of technical expertise and personal care they offer. Our   " Changing Minds spot shows how New England Cancer Specialists are redefining cancer care in Maine, while 
" Tracy T presents the story of a patient who has gained a new lease on life from the care she has received.

Burgess Advertising & Marketing has been helping businesses and other organizations in northern New England grow for 30 years. We strive to capture the essence of each client's brand and promote it across  the entire marketing spectrum to give  your brand  its best shot at positive ROI.

Dear Clients & Friends,

Welcome to a real Maine winter!

We're excited to be kicking off 2017 with several new clients, but it is not too late to get your own communications plan and budget in gear for 2017. Especially in social media and other digital platforms, the process from planning to 
execution to results can be very fast.

As we celebrate our 30th year, I'd like to thank all our clients, past, present and returned, who have contributed to our longevity. We simply would not exist without you!

Looking ahead, in just a few weeks we plan to leave our home of 28 years on Congress Street for Fundy Road in Falmouth. We're excited about the new space, and look forward to inviting you for a tour later in March. In the meantime, please call with any questions you may have about your company's plans and direction.

I look forward to talking with you soon. In the meantime, enjoy the snow!

PS: Tune in to MPBN radio at 4:45 pm each Thursday for the latest installment of Across the Aisle, on which I take a break from marketing to talk politics.
Hi, Ho, Silver!

Educate Maine/Project Login:   TechHire Designation Event

In August of 2015, the White House designated Maine one of the original "TechHire" communities because several key employers committed to hire tech qualified workers regardless of their background or credentials. We coordinated a successful media event including Senator Angus King at IDEXX.
