Together, we are embarking on the important next steps that will result in a significantly stronger brand identity for the South Main St. area of Phillipsburg, New Jersey. This isn’t an effort happening in isolation, it’s a cross-sector, community-driven, and carefully executed long-term, sustainable effort. It’s a continuation of decades of work towards developing a strong foundation poised for progress. Properly executed, this journey ultimately drives new business, increases economic activity, creates a stronger sense of community, and results in greater pride of place by community members and stakeholders; both current and future. We know — because you've told us — that Phillipsburg is ready for positive change and forward momentum. The success of the collective is what has historically driven the Phillipsburg community to prosperity. This new unified effort maximizes existing progress, brings on new engagement points, and elevates South Main St. Phillipsburg to a destination and beacon for opportunity and economic prosperity.
This Branding and Marketing Action Plan was developed through a collaborative process with the South Main St. Alliance Team Members. We would like to thank the Team volunteers and others who devoted many hours to the process of making this plan a reality by dedicating their time and talent to the South Main St. Alliance. As well as the many business and property owners, residents, and others who contributed their time and valuable input of ideas, resources, and feedback.
The recommendations made in this Plan are based on the information provided to The Nuñez Co by many caring and concerned citizens, research, best practices in other comparable cities and municipalities, historical context; as well as experience and expertise in the field of branding, marketing, and creative placemaking.
This Branding and Marketing Action Plan includes an overview of research, an analysis of South Main Street’s current environment, illuminates strategic priorities for the area, and delves into a plan of action that the South Main St. Alliance can realistically implement given its limited budget and resources.
The results from implementation of this Plan are dependent upon many factors, including the time, effort, funding availability, and cross-sector cooperation of those involved in its implementation. To maximize the opportunity for success and minimize potential brand confusion, we must execute this Plan together, at the same time, with the same tools and intentions, using the same playbook. This Plan serves as our unified playbook.
