We treat your money as we do our own, finding resources that present the best value and meet your goals.
We function as an outsourced Marketing Department – it’s like paying for a fractional share of a highly educated, experienced, and dedicated Marketing Team – paying just for what you need, with no need to hire full time personnel on staff. We work to get to know you, your organization, and your customers. We then work with you to create a marketing strategy you’ll feel great about putting into action in the marketplace. Once we have a solid marketing plan in place, we handle the marketing implementation for you, just like your internal Marketing Department would do.
We use the following methodology in everything we do:
Whether the project is a year-long SEO effort, or a quick image banner for your website, we take into consideration the market you need to reach. We want all our efforts to benefit your brand and your business, so that’s why we always start by assessing exactly what you need and what results you expect to get from it. We do this via in-depth consultation and research.
We then plan and propose the best solution to your online marketing challenges. With your approval, we launch the plan and monitor its progress. We tweak it according to the results and repeat the process.
Every one of our experienced professionals has a degree in their field, and has actually worked in responsible marketing roles on the client side. We didn’t just decide to hang up a marketing sign outside our door one day. We know what it’s like to have responsibility for revenue growth, deadlines to meet, personnel and agencies to manage, and more work to do than humanly possible between meetings. Our marketing company is founded on being an invaluable assistance to you in terms of getting things done. Here are a few of our key players:
