Daniel Brian Agency is a brand consultancy focused on building emotional engagement with your customers. Working with your teams, we plan, create, produce, place and, most importantly, MEASURE fully integrated strategies for every touchpoint of your branded experience.

We work with leading brands by harnessing the power of purpose to grow awareness and your bottom line by building passionate advocates, who will co-create your brand with you.


Passionate brands for passionate families

DBA specializes in turning families into fans for some of the fastest growing brands in wellness and healthcare, finance, retail food-service and consumer packaged goods.


We manifest the magic behind leading brands

We grow emotional connections by harnessing the power of purpose. Beyond branding, we create measurable impact throughout your digital and social communications ecosystem. Our hyperlocal digital platform is proven to reach millions of consumers with individual customization and precision.


We believe the brand that contributes the most value to society wins

All brand building is driven by the forces of reciprocity. For example, advertising is an exchange. Let’s not fool ourselves. People don’t line up to hear about products and services. People line up to get something of value. The best advertising gives the audience a gift. We give them entertainment, a promotional offer or an emotional experience in exchange for their attention or consideration. When brands add value to people’s lives through a positive service experience, people tend to promote the brand. The more value brands add, the more value consumers return.

Irrational Advocacy IndexSM

Millennials and “aspirationals” have disrupted the traditional marketing funnel with new measurables. Today’s fastest growing brands are earning emotional connections by contributing their influence to make the world a better place – as an advocate for your family, your values or your cause. We can’t ignore this consumer impact. We must quantify it. We’ve quantified the influence of your brand experience in a unified score: Your Irrational Advocacy IndexSM. This is how we can provide unprecedented performance guarantees for branding and advertising results.


As the shift of budgets moves from traditional to digital and non-traditional brand building models including service experience, marketers need an unbiased voice to trust when assessing options and recommending proper budget weights. We bring impact as your “branding agency” and efficiency as your “digital agency.” This eliminates costly redundancy and conflicting creative messages to improve ad productivity.

Brand Advocacy Consulting Model

As more than an advertising agency, DBA is a brand experience and engagement agency. We offer a wider range of services precisely because your Irrational Advocacy IndexSM is impacted by a wider range of sources than ever before.

Thinking outside of the narrow view of specialty niches, we can offer ideas beyond the traditional scope of advertising. All our brand consulting is rooted in research & strategic planning.
