“George Kan and his team at Captus Advertising quickly honed in on our assets and identified our unique appeal to potential visitors. They then developed for us a creative campaign that was perfect in every way. We had a large membership from which we needed to seek approval, but everyone loved the ad campaign! What’s more, Captus really cared about what our museum was trying to achieve and went above and beyond to secure us fantastic deals for our ad buys. Already, we are attracting new audiences to our exhibitions. We thank Captus and highly recommend their team.”
Vania Pecchia, Marketing Manager
“We at Bosa Properties always receive tremendous value from the work provided by Captus. We rely regularly on their insights in the Chinese market and beyond. After we started working with Captus, we noticed an immediate increase in traffic to our Sales Centre. They are our secret weapon when it comes to marketing to the Asian population.
We rely on them to consistently find us the best value for our media dollars, and they repeatedly meet and exceed our expectations. We have worked with them closely for over 5 projects, and the level of personalized service that they offer is unmatched. Our market is ever-changing and we find Captus to always be plugged-in.”

“It has been our ongoing pleasure to work with George Kan and Rachel Cheung of Captus Advertising. We began our engagement early this year, when we were faced with promoting an energy conservation education program to Chinese and South Asian homeowners. We needed to find an agency that understood these ethnic markets and could work with us to present the program’s benefits in a way that would drive participation.
Captus conceptualized and developed the advertising creative; translated and interpreted the program’s key messages; designed and developed collateral materials and print ads; developed a media plan; secured unpaid media opportunities; and coordinated the execution of all printing and advertising. We are pleased to report that as soon as the advertising hit the media, our phones started ringing, and that today, we are well on our way to achieving our goals for the program.
Throughout the entire engagement, George and Rachel have demonstrated their depth of marketing communications expertise, and their ability to manage the inevitable challenges with grace and maturity. I would recommend Captus Advertising to anyone seeking a creative, responsive, efficient, and client-focused agency.”

“Captus Advertising was the perfect marketing partner to help Reliance develop a presence in GTA’s growing Chinese community. George and Rachel really took the time up front to get to know Reliance and our goals, which helped them to more easily communicate our strengths to clients and prospects.
The television commercial that they produced was great, and the entire process was really collaborative and creative. I’d happily recommend them to anyone (other than those in our industry).”

“The benefits of chocolate milk are wide reaching; especially given the dairy products are under consumed by young adults during their peak bone building years. We wanted to reach out to the Chinese speaking moms to let them know the importance of chocolate milk.
Working with Captus Advertising we got to understand this consumer segment and the best way to reach out to them with a nutrition message. Captus has a deep understanding of what works, why and how best to communicate with the Asian market. This was our pilot year talking to this market segment but definitely won’t be our last. Thanks again for everything Rachel and George.”
The BC Dairy Foundation had been dedicated to increasing consumption of milk in British Columbia and delivering innovative nutrition education programs to British Columbia consumers for over 30 years.
