TKO = Technical KnockOut
TKO is more than just an acronym for The Kennedy Organization agency. It speaks to our Chicago roots; the tradition of Friday night at the fights and the annual fisticuffs forum known as the CYO tournament, where boxers became champions on the big stage at the Northwest Armory.
Marketing has a lot in common with boxing. Success requires being fast on your feet. Sizing up your competition. Perfecting technique. Choosing the right placement. Adapting real-time to your opponent’s moves. Outthinking the other guy. And doing it all with panache.
That’s how we deliver marketing TKOs for our clients.

Once our new packaging hit the stores, we saw an immediate improvement in sell-through—over 20%. The bright colors really catch shoppers’ attention, and TKO was able to hone in on the right messaging to convert the sale.
