When it comes 
to your brand
We aren’t 
the kings
We are 

kingmakers 

.

LIMELIGHTsa was born out of a desire to step out of the limelight, and to work relentlessly to shine it on our clients and their brands.

We made the decision to actively walk away from a world where agencies battle it out to see who can be king. And to focus on making our clients reign supreme. To make them the kings and queens of their domain.

Because their awards are our rewards. Their successes are our successes. And their victories are our victories. Not the other way around.

How we make kings

As Kingmakers, we understand that each problem requires a unique, tailored solution, made up of a range of omnichannel brand touchpoints and experiences. That’s why we take a journey with you to intimately get to know your business – understanding every aspect of the brand, the team that drives it, the trade, consumers, shoppers, and the environment the brand competes in. Then our team of expert Kingmakers springs into action to forge a route to success through:

Strategy that cuts to the core of the problem at hand

An understanding of who we’re talking to – the consumer, shopper, trade and the sales force that services the trade

Multi-disciplinary creative that solves problems for each touchpoint

Integrated campaigns that seamlessly flow from “brick & mortar” into digital, and back again

Work that connects with the audience at the right time, through the right touchpoint, with relevant, meaningful content

Our solutions are always competitive in market, and often 1st to market. We successfully brainstorm and implement co-creation and co-promotion ideation and planning sessions with Retail Customers and internal Sales and Marketing teams, which more often than not leads to fantastic ROI. Strategically, we work closely to develop Trade Marketing Strategies that allow us to set longer-term objectives for AMKA within Retail, Wholesale, and Independent trade (for RSA and our cross-border markets), and then develop fully integrated plans and activities for execution. Outside of Trade and Shopper Marketing activities, LimelightSA have planned and managed our annual Sales and Marketing Conference.

For many years now, Colgate-Pamolive has relied on LIMELIGHTsa to manage our Annual Distributors Conference. I am sure many agencies can create a good one-time event, but LIMELIGHTsa has effectively brought together a diverse group of people year after year with a fresh theme, new venue and new approach. People travel from across Africa for this annual event and they are never disappointed. Thank you LIMELIGHTsa for being a consistent, world class organization that I can always rely on to deliver great results.
