Marketing and Creative for Small and Medium Sized Businesses

Our agency began in 2008 with a vision to provide small and mid-size companies the kind of quality found in large agencies serving large corporations. What we learned through the years is that while our clients did value good, strategic creative – what they valued as much if not more is the ability to be flexible, practical, and efficient in creating quality deliverables. It’s a culture that’s not easy to create in global-sized agencies. You’ll find our culture creates –

• Flexibility that allows you to easily tap into, and out of, diverse services as needs change – all without having to retrain a new team
• Efficiency in creating high-quality work without bureaucracy and non-productive work: aka, reasonable fees
• Customized solutions and invested high-level agency partners
• Ability to work directly with the talent doing the work, and the freedom to not have to, depending on the level of collaboration desired

For Clients with Marketing Challenges Money Alone Can’t Solve

Verve Marketing Group serves small and medium-size organizations most typically under $500 million. Not too big. And not too small. This size fits our expertise with what clients sometimes perceive as “difficult” marketing challenges. We appreciate clients who value the power of good creative. Who care about results. And who know their products and an idea of what they’re hoping to accomplish. For example, situations such as –

• A need to create a brand identity that speaks to vastly different audiences
• Audiences in niche industries that need to be reached cost-effectively
• Products with a complex purchase process or high-ticket/important decision involving research and high trust
• Products whose communications require an ability to “speak the language” of a niche culture

Work Directly with Agency Principals and High-Level Talent

The Verve team is a group of thinkers, doers, innovators and leaders in branding, marketing and creative. You will collaborate with strategic marketers and award-winning creatives who deliver what you need on time, on budget, and on target — passionate professionals who genuinely care about your success. Our team has worked together for the long-term and enjoys working with clients for the long-term. We think of ourselves as an extension of your team. We care. And together, we’ll help you to greater success.
