Welcome to Promise, a medium-sized, owner-managed Jozi agency where business is personal. We take our craft personally. We take our brands personally. We don’t do one-size-fits-all, because it never does. Promise combines a seamless and diverse blend of in-house capabilities to solve challenges in a unique way, always taking into consideration each job’s specific needs. Our humble beginnings taught us what it means to value our clients, no matter how small, and to treat every client and every piece of work as if it were the only one.
It’s a simple thought, but 16-years later, it has shaped us into who we are today - a team of 75 specialists who have mastered the art of strategic marketing and through-the-line communication solutions.
These are the foundations we live by. Trust begins with a promise and is fulfilled through collaboration & accountability. When good people work with other good people — combining kindness, talent and a relentless hunger, trust and effective collaboration follow naturally.
We make it a priority to avail our most senior level staff to our clients in all our engagements. It’s a core value that we’ll never relinquish, as these open lines of communication have resulted in the great working relationships we treasure to this day.
At Promise, what begins as a welcome challenge and a big idea, becomes a firm reality — confidently sealed with a handshake and a pinky promise.
Promise is a full-service independent communications agency based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Here at Promise, we've got a simple strategy: let the most effective idea lead. Why? Because great ideas are the lowest common denominator in any success story – ideas go beyond functional delivery areas and rally us together around greatness. Whether it be a crazy, ingenious, smart or seemingly-impossible idea, the ideas that matter are the ones that make a difference to bottom line growth and deliver on our clients objectives. We are not precious, we love to be challenged – without a good challenge, where is the room for creativity to shine? It is our insatiable curiosity that drives us forward in the pursuit of the remarkable. Remarkable creative work transcends platforms, channels and mediums. At Promise it’s not all rainbows and butterflies, with a sceptical strategic department specialising in brand and media consulting, we apply rigorous strategic thinking to each and every project, no matter the size. At Promise we treasure each and every client. We go out of our way (that is each and every employee) to go above and beyond, always ensuring our clients’ brands are that much more valuable than they were yesterday.
