The way business is being played, is changing. Raw consumerism is being replaced with mindful consumerism. Individuals want to know they’re supporting a business who is about more than a quality product and profit. Consumers want to feel connected to something bigger than themselves. A purpose that extends from you to them.

Our rates are higher because we are focused on quality. The adage in the tech and marketing world is you can have cheap, fast, or right. You only get to pick two of those. In reality we are focused on highly qualified, interdisciplinary talent. Ensuring our team is compensated for their work, and that we can deliver the highest quality work possible.
We also don’t charge for your project manager’s time. We have found that when a project manager’s time is billed separately, people don't reach out to communicate more. We want more communication rather than less.
Well, if the smiling robot isn’t enough, we urge you to check out some of the clients we’ve worked with, including Jay Abraham, Peter Diamandis, and JJ Virgin, and hundreds of other businesses since 2004. And on this page you can see some of the testimonials we’ve received from our clients as well.
We understand that giving the keys to your house is never a decision to take lightly, we have the utmost respect for that. Our commitment is to provide top quality service, and help insure that you’re never not in control. That means we’ll make sure that you always retain ownership and access to your accounts, and will never hold your tech hostage.
While we work with clients in a variety of ways, we primarily work on monthly retainers. With a focus on the Objective and Key Results or "OKRs" of your company. (We're a big fan of John Doerr... give his Ted Talk a watch!) We work with you to define those OKRs, and set budgets to achieve your goals.
We prefer to work off of monthly engagements in order to create a “client for life” relationship. The benefit of working in this manner is that it lets us work as partners aligned toward achieving your goals.
Depending on your specific needs, we do have the ability to work in a one-off retainer capacity.
Here's how a project usually works
If you're a new customer, we typically start with a Tech & Marketing Audit, which lets us look inside your business, and understand where we can have the most impact working together, and how your project fits into your overall plan. Depending on the project need, we might dive right now research, or creating a technical design document, depending on the project objectives and complexity.
Next we'll create a digital proposal and walk you through the scope work, and how we'll proceed.
After the proposal is signed, we'll hold a kick-off meeting and into you to your Project Manager, where we'll define working styles, communication preferences, etc. (e.g., Do you prefer texts to emails? Do you work odd hours? Do you like listening to heavy metal during our meetings because it soothes your soul?)
From there we establish what our sprint milestones are, and dive into the tasks related to reaching those milestones. We’ll typically meet on a weekly or bi weekly basis to review the work that’s been done, and add more work to the next sprint.
Between meetings you’ll find that we thrive on memes, good humor, and a fun atmosphere. We’re straight shooters, but we prefer to keep things light, fun, and joyful, rather than cold, hard, and matter-of-fact.
In an ideal world, all of our projects would be done yesterday, right? Well unfortunately our robot AI hasn’t cracked the code on time travel... yet.
Each project will depend on our current pipeline. If you have a very urgent need, we’ll often try to accommodate you. In general, however, there will be work in the queue ahead of yours.
No matter what, your project manager will be able to give you estimates and timelines on how soon a project can be completed, or how soon a certain milestone can be reached. And we always strive to accommodate special projects needs and timelines as much as possible.
Our team is located pretty much everywhere. We are a decentralized network of front-end and back-end developers, marketers, designers, managers, and Chief Marketing Technologists.
