NEW YORK, Jan. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- North 6th Agency, Inc. (N6A), an award-winning communications agency based in the heart of SoHo in New York City, today announced the launch of the N6A Cannabis Services Group, a newly dedicated division solely focused on the cannabis industry.
The N6A Cannabis Services Group will provide clients in the legal cannabis industry with strategic media campaigns, branding, creative services and marketing services.
Leading the N6A Cannabis Services Group will be newly promoted N6A Director Robert Vanisko. N6A is currently accepting applications for the following positions within its Cannabis Services Group: Account Coordinator, Account Executive, Senior Account Executive, and Account Manager.
"While we've been at the forefront of cannabis media for quite some time, we're excited to formally launch one of the first dedicated cannabis divisions for an agency of our size and reach," said Matt Rizzetta, CEO of N6A. "We feel N6A is uniquely positioned for companies in the legal cannabis industry, as we have a combination of domain knowledge, a top-notch track record of working with clients in the space as well as the national reach that cannabis companies are seeking to elevate their brands to the next level."
Seeing a demand for increased awareness in mainstream media among companies in the legal cannabis industry, N6A began representing clients across emerging cannabis sectors while the industry was still nascent. Since N6A first began working with cannabis clients, its portfolio has expanded to include leading clients across several cannabis industries, including Canopy, Green Flower Media, Jetty Extracts, Poseidon Asset Management, Surna, Tradiv, VapeXhale, Wurk, and others.
"We knew going into our search that we wanted it all – a PR agency with proven mainstream skills, a highly responsive team, and cannabis industry experience, all at a fair price," said Rob Fess, Director of Marketing at Tradiv. "We looked at a handful of agencies, but it was quick to see that N6A was exactly what we needed. It felt like even before the ink was dry, they were getting us exactly the exposure we were after."
N6A has regularly secured coverage for its clients in the legal cannabis industry in influential national, trade, business, consumer and broadcast media outlets, including Bloomberg, Business Insider, CNBC, Forbes, Merry Jane, Rolling Stone, USA Today, and dozens of others. N6A's expertise in the legal cannabis industry was featured prominently by the New York Observer in the publication's annual "Power 50" issue.
"Not only has it been a true pleasure working with N6A, but they've gotten [the] results they promised," said Max Simon, CEO and Founder at Green Flower Media. "If you're a cannabis company looking to establish yourself in this new mainstream landscape [then] they get our highest recommendation." Watch Simon's full customer testimonial here.
