North 6th Agency Creates Outcome Relations™

By Announcements

North 6th Agency (N6A) is disrupting the legacy public relations agency model with its introduction of Outcome Relations™, the first public relations offering that aligns with the specific business outcomes that are most important to CMOs, CEOs and brand marketers today.

As The Outcome Relations Agency, N6A is modernizing the industry by creating an inherent level of accountability, attribution, and amplification for PR.  Within the Outcome Relations (OR) model, PR services such as earned media, content and reputation management will be applied to a proprietary process with the opportunity to amplify results through digital media.

N6A clients can choose from more than 20 types of specific outcomes across six categories:

  • Revenue Outcomes
  • Recruiting Outcomes
  • Competitive Outcomes
  • M&A Outcomes
  • Capital Raise Outcomes
  • Enterprise Value Outcomes

As part of the OR offering, N6A develops custom Outcome Dashboards that enable clients to select their desired outcomes, target specific personas, align on KPIs and track the performance of their campaigns in real-time against the chosen outcomes.

“We believe the future of PR is OR,” said Matt Rizzetta, CEO of N6A. “We’ve sat in front of thousands of CMOs, CEOs, founders and brand marketers over the past decade, and the most common concern was PR’s alignment with specific business outcomes. Our Outcome Relations model tackles this pain point by assigning PR the same level of accountability as other components of the marketing stack.”

This announcement comes on the heels of the release of Rizzetta’s debut book, “The Death of Irrelevant PR: Outcome Relations is the New Public Relations. The book, which is available on Amazon and on Audible, serves as an essential how-to guide for Outcome Relations. It includes a step-by-step tutorial of the OR process, best practices, case study examples and detailed overviews of each type of outcome.

Former PepsiCo CFO and DirecTV CEO Mike White commented on the book: “Matt Rizzetta and N6A’s vision is innovative and forward-thinking in that it forces the public relations category to be held accountable for business outcomes in front of CEOs, CMOs, and decision makers in the board room.”

Leading up to the Outcome Relations launch, N6A hired media transformer and former Epsilon and Zeta Interactive CEO, Al DiGuido, as President and Chief Revenue Officer. DiGuido brings with him a track record of successfully transforming legacy media and marketing service categories. He has been at the forefront of transformational shifts across print, direct response and digital media, and believes the next major shift in media is happening in PR.

“For generations, public relations has served as an appendage to the overall marketing mix, but was never held accountable for driving bottom-line outcomes,” said Al DiGuido, President and CRO of N6A. “The launch of Outcome Relations completely changes this narrative by addressing ROI challenges with PR for businesses at all stages of growth.”

Al DiGuido Joins North 6th Agency as President and Chief Revenue Officer

By Announcements

NEW YORKApril 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — North 6th Agency (N6A), an award-winning brand communications agency, today announced that marketing and media industry pioneer, Al DiGuido, is joining as President and Chief Revenue Officer.

DiGuido rose to prominence as one of the founding pioneers of email marketing during his tenure as CEO of Bigfoot Interactive. In 2005, he sold Bigfoot to Alliance Data’s Epsilon business unit for $120 million and became the CEO of Epsilon Interactive.

Under his leadership, Epsilon became one of the dominant email providers in the marketplace and expanded aggressively through the acquisition of DoubleClick’s email unit. In April 2019, Epsilon was acquired by Publicis for $4.4 billion.

“I’ve known Al for my entire career, and have witnessed his vision, integrity and spirit on display for clients, employees and shareholders,” said Matt Rizzetta, Founder and CEO of N6A. “There is nobody I can think of who is better suited and aligned with N6A’s vision to transform the public relations industry through business outcomes. I am honored to have Al play on our team as we take N6A to new heights for our clients and team members.”

DiGuido’s track record of identifying opportunities for innovation and successfully transforming legacy media and marketing service categories extends well beyond email marketing. He has been at the forefront of transformational shifts across print, direct response and digital media.

Following his tenure at Epsilon, DiGuido became CEO of Zeta Interactive. At Zeta, he realized his vision of transcending the solo email business to build an agency that helps marketers realize the full potential of integrated technology platforms, services, and strategies.

DiGuido’s career ascension began at Ziff-Davis, where he was Publisher of Computer Shopper during the PC boom of the 1980s. DiGuido successfully expanded the Computer Shopper franchise, transforming it from a print publication into a breakthrough online media property. Under his leadership, ComputerShopper.com accounted for more than 40 percent of the advertising revenue of ZDNet.

At N6A, DiGuido will oversee sales and revenue functions, as well as M&A and capital initiatives to support N6A’s vision and growth strategy. Additionally, DiGuido will work alongside CEO Matt Rizzetta and the N6A leadership team to introduce a new model that will transform the public relations category by aligning with specific business outcomes of CMOs, CEOs and brand marketers.

“I have yet to meet an agency that can rival N6A’s track record of client results, innovation and outcome-oriented culture,” said Al DiGuido, President and Chief Revenue Officer of N6A. “There is a tremendous opportunity to transform the legacy public relations category with a laser focus on being accountable for the specific business outcomes that CMOs, CEOs and brand marketers demand today. I believe N6A is perfectly positioned to lead this transformation.”

DiGuido, who will be based in N6A’s New York office, is also the founder of Al’s Angels, a non-profit, charitable organization whose mission is to provide assistance to children and families suffering hardship due to life-threatening illnesses or poverty. Al’s Angels has built a network of more than 2,000 volunteers in the Tri-State area, and delivers thousands of Thanksgiving meals, holiday gifts, and much needed resources to more than 1,600 to children and families each year.

North 6th Agency Ranked as One of Entrepreneur’s 2018 Top Company Cultures in America

By Announcements

NEW YORK and TORONTO – North 6th Agency (N6A), an award-winning brand communications and social media agency based in New York City and Toronto, today was named as one of Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures. Full rankings are available online at Entrepreneur.com and in the October 2018 print issue of Entrepreneur Magazine.

Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures is a comprehensive annual ranking of the U.S.-based businesses exhibiting the best employee cultures.

In order to determine the winners, Entrepreneur surveyed employees at thousands of U.S.-based businesses with a minimum of 35 employees. Surveys were answered by over 34,000 participants, with the highest-ranking companies making it to the final Top Company Cultures list.

Rankings were evaluated across 24 factors in seven categories: alignment, effectiveness, connection, management, engagement, leadership, and basics.

“We’re honored to be ranked as one of the Top Company Cultures in America by Entrepreneur,” said Matt Rizzetta, CEO of N6A. “So many people have made career bets on N6A over the past decade, and thanks to them, we have created a culture of innovation, experimentation, and togetherness. We will work tirelessly to keep getting better every day, and to making everyone proud of the bet they made on N6A.”

Understanding that there is no “one size fits all” approach in today’s work environment, N6A has created a culture of recognition that is personalized for each employee. Earlier this year, N6A launched “Pace Points,” a points-based rewards system in which employees accumulate points for specific individual, group and company-wide achievements. The program allows employees to choose rewards across categories in health, travel, transportation and housing, quality of life, unique experiences, cash and more. Rewards were designed around employee feedback and range from a few hundred dollars to over $50,000 in value.

N6A also implemented the Summer Sabbatical Challenge, a company-wide initiative incentivizing employees to achieve specific team goals for the chance to earn a one-month sabbatical in 2019. Goals were set for each department across the agency, and if met, all N6A employees will receive one-month paid leave next year. This initiative is intended to motivate employee productivity, boost morale and reinforce work-life balance, teamwork, and personal growth.
