Sensis was created to address two fundamental shifts taking place in society — the growing cultural diversity of the country and the rapid adoption of digital technology.
Sensis began as a digital agency 15 years ago. However, we don’t fit nicely into any of the categories that agencies get put into:
We are a digital agency … that expanded into traditional advertising.
We are a Hispanic agency … that handles general market work for many of our clients.
We are a PR firm … that builds websites and buys media. A cross-cultural advertising agency with digital at its core.
Our vision is to retire the concept of the “general market” and replace it with a new, explicitly cross-cultural model of advertising, PR and marketing. Our unique agency model combines multicultural and general market reach with digital, traditional advertising, and PR. We have been at the forefront of the burgeoning multicultural social media space, and are widely considered industry thought leaders in how to use social media to engage Hispanics, African-Americans, and Asians.
