“With content, you need to take the time to plan, in order to be nimble.”

- Marc Fortin, Partner, Vice-President, Executive Creative Director – Montreal

Brands should only tell stories that people want to hear. Our content team creates, produces and deploys content in a multitude of formats and channels that keep brands current, more culturally relevant and more closely connected to their communities.

Every brand wants to get their consumer’s attention. But with media fragmentation at an all-time high, advertisers have to compete fiercely for every set of eyeballs, across every screen, at every second. Given this, creating content that entertains, educates and connects is essential to attracting and inspiring brand loyalty. Compelling content reinforces the brand’s promise on a daily basis, and accompanies the consumer on every step of their journey. Creating a digital footprint that’s both vibrant and enduring. In short, great content helps brands stay current, more culturally relevant and more closely connected to their surroundings.

At lg2, we understand the power of a good story. And we also understand why brands make content marketing a priority: Interruptive marketing is becoming less and less efficient. Instead, people are turning to content that they actually want to read, watch or listen to. That being said, almost two-thirds of marketers admit to not having a clear content strategy for their brands. 

That’s why our specialists – with their media and editorial backgrounds – help brands develop strategies that are aligned with their business objectives, their customers’ interests and the cultural context in which they operate. They create, produce and deploy content in a wide variety of formats.. This includes publishing, promoting and optimizing content in a multitude of social and interpersonal channels. It’s also why they moderate and engage in conversations with numerous communities, all while respecting a brand’s unique tone and personality.

1 entrepreneur + 1 entrepreneur

lg2 is the story of two entrepreneurs. Sylvain Labarre (the “L”) and Paul Gauthier (the “G”). The two of them, along with Gilles Chouinard, started to build a small agency with big ambitions. More than 25 years later, with over 250 talented employees and thousands of awards for some of the most innovative and well-known brands in the world, the founders’ relentless focus on their people and their product remains just as strong. And their bold ways have since been successfully passed on to over 20 new entrepreneurs, who work just as tirelessly to preserve our independence and creatively driven business model.
