We Build Brand Colonies

Colony – ˈkälənē – a group of individuals with common characteristics or interests in close association with each other.


At Orbital Socket, we collaborate to bring clear optics to and actions around precisely identifying the consumer, and then build a customer experience that engages them. We work across all channels and touchpoints to get the brand’s story presented organically within the specific channel, in ways that tell the whole story. Brand Colonization (TM) encourages brand growth and significantly increases the lifetime value of your consumer by creating deeper, more connected consumer relationships. The colony is a powerful group of brand loyalists that drive engagement in the marketplace for your brand. Colonies are the defined and connected part of a brand’s community and provides
a solid foundation for growth.


Let us help you start your Brand Colony today and see what’s possible.
