Marketing Strategies was born from the dreams of an entrepreneur who believes the principal business in life is to enjoy life. Our agency’s goal is to work with clients who are committed to marketing and understand it’s a process, not an instant fix. What truly distinguishes Marketing Strategies from competitors is the agency’s passion, unique personality and creative approach – keeping things fun and fresh with a team of expert go-getters who continuously push the envelope. Employees wear a number of different hats, and on most days, they wear several. The staff meets on Thursday afternoons complete with office cats (Callie and Oleander), for Wine Down Thursdays – a great way to recap the week and gain perspective on strategies that are best for client success.
