The Agency501 Manifesto
Marketing a business these days is no easy feat. In most cases, somebody who says you need one or the other probably has it backward – and there is never a “one size fits all” approach that works. The challenges can feel real when your competition seems poised to take advantage at every corner–especially if they’re already established brands with deep pockets from years’ worth of experience under their belt. But risk-taking doesn’t always come naturally; Our ad agency feels small sometimes because we’ve only been around since 2012. But believe us: we have earned our industry stripes.
Digital marketing, content marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, and video production–are all relatively new terms in the business world, but they sure have made a splash. If you Google “digital marketing agency” right now, you’ll probably find us close to the top. But that doesn’t mean we’re the only game in town–far from it. There are other reputable agencies out there who can help your business succeed online too. So here’s a little something to help you figure out if we’re the right fit for you:
We guarantee that we’ll be the hardest-working, most transparent company you’ve ever worked with. We will not ever guarantee a result and encourage you to steer clear of any agency or person that does. That said, we’re proud of our reputation. We wouldn’t be here for over a decade had we not generated some badass results for our clients. If you’re on the hunt for a new digital marketing company that will do everything possible to make you succeed, give us a call. We’d love the opportunity to earn your business.
We’ve been at it since 2012.
As a creative company, creativity is in everything we touch for our clients. Creativity is not limited to the work we do, it is also in how we think. Creative thinking allows us to find solutions with our resources, whether they be time or tools, which are limited. We find solutions to everyday situations, both internally and externally.
We are a team, and it takes the effort of every person here to successful. We need you. Your team needs you. You are important. We depend on each other to complete our (both individual and team) goals. If one person fails, essentially we all fail together. We must be honest and transparent with each other by communicating clearly and with radical candor.
We have zero desire to be ordinary. We are dedicated to our cause, which makes us extraordinary. Being dedicated means learning a new skill in order to meet a client’s goal, learning new/complicated things in order to stay ahead of the curve, or striving to master your current foundation of expertise. Dedication is about going the extra mile.
We choose to grow, not die. This growth starts with our mindset, and we believe growth is, under any circumstance, always attainable. We are worthy to grow like anyone else and understand that, in order to grow, we must be driven. We take action and do not wait for others. We know that each of our voices and ideas matters.
We show up each and every day because we understand the importance of consistency. Consistency makes us reliable and stable. It also makes us trustworthy. The best brands in the world are known for their consistency, whether it is the quality of their products or the high levels of service they provide.
6. Smart AF
This is not an easy industry. You are here for many reasons, but most importantly because you are smart and capable. We are fortunate to have received God-given talents and to be able to say that we are naturally skilled. We understand that this gift is also a responsibility and that we must continue to sharpen our knowledge.
