Paid Placements By understanding who your target customers are, we are able to build successful ad campaigns that help you generate more qualified leads. Data-Driven Decision Making Our team has history in consulting, finance, and big data. What does that mean? We're great with excel! More importantly, we are able to analyze social media, audience, ad copy, image and conversion data, and use this data to guide the digital strategy for your online marketing campaign. Our Approach Agile Marketing: We spend the first months of client campaigns testing, validating, reshaping, and gaining feedback from ideas, in order to quickly learn which messages resonate, which media are most effective, etc., all before spending client money on work that we think is a good idea (but don’t really know for sure). We see this as a more authentic, effective, and modern approach to advertising. Art + Science: We believe that effective online marketing is one part art (design, content creation, compelling copy), and one part science (metrics, measurement, analytics). Our team combines these two crucial elements in each and every strategy we develop and tactic we implement in order to create beautiful, viral digital marketing programs that drive business objectives.
