What We Do

G8 Strategies Sectors

Investor Relations

Keeping investors informed while staying within the regulatory guidelines is one of the most important components of the IR toolset. From pitch decks, investor collateral, analyst engagement strategies and investor events, we are experienced in creating the correct solution to achieve your shareholders communications goals. Our expertise is in creating retail marketing campaigns to grow the retailer shareholder base and create liquidity and enhanced shareholder engagement.

National and International Public Relations

Global Public Relations & Marketing

Consumers are bombarded with over 5,000 visual messages per day. Add in auditory and passive messages, and the number is overwhelming. But people still respond to a good story. Telling your company’s story should be a top priority, however, it is often overlooked. How often have you looked at the news section on a company’s website only to find it years out of date and stale. Telling a business’s story through earned media/PR are a cornerstone of the marketing toolbox. We combine the crafted story with the best marketing and digital marketing tactics to garner the desired results.

Brand Creation and Revitalization

Brand Creation and Revitalization

We define a brand as a company’s promise to its customers. It’s not just a logo or a tag line, though these are elements of a brand. Your brand is the heart and soul of your company and should be researched and analyzed to ensure that you are delivering the right message to the right customers and stakeholders. Whether you need a new brand for a start-up or a revitalization of an existing brand, the team is ready to jump in and handle your branding necessities.


At the core of everything we do is the strategic plan. Sometimes it will be a fairly large document to control the growth of many channels, but usually it is just a couple pages to outline our thoughts into a cohesive implementation plan. In business, creating a compelling strategy to drive growth is one of the most effective planning tools there is.

Ira came in, organized his team of experts, and knocked out every challenge—no matter how big or small. In addition, he is an incredible individual. He takes responsibility, learns quickly, innovates accordingly, and is a true team player. I feel like he always has our back, and that feeling is priceless.”

“G8 Strategies helped Astra Exploration build up our investor relations strategies from our IPO until we hired someone full-time in the IR role. They focused on telling our story and helping us connect with shareholders via social media,  monthly newsletters and a variety of marketing tools.  G8’s expertise and creativity in delivering investor relations was very helpful during the time that Astra was just getting started as  a company.”

We are extremely happy with the results thus far.”
