A full-service, multi-faceted agency with over 25 years experience

in branding, design and advertising in both legacy and digital marketing.

We’re in the business of relationships

One might assume that only applies to the long standing relationships we form with our clients. We think it also means the relationships they form with their target audiences. For years we short handed that to mean, a client's brand. However, we began to realize that no matter how great you thought your brand was this year it always had to ride different waves of fortune. That meant that the longer we were with a client the better we understood their needs. With changes in technology we could also blend past programs seamlessly with future ones. Years of coffee meetings, board room presentations and the odd beverage on a Friday helps one fully understand the needs of our clients.

So while we know that saying we want to build a relationship may be a bit cliché, we believe that we need to get to know you to really help you. It works for us, we hope it will work for you.

Integrated, full service approach

This means that we’ve got what you need when you need it. Creative directors, art directors, copy writers, production artists, account managers, digital media specialists, website and app developers, media buyers and public relations at your beck and call. Your creative and management team will be assigned after initial meetings so we can find the best fit for your business and brand requirements.

Singular in a commodity world 

We understand that you have a unique message to convey, so why not work with a unique agency? By first understanding your organization, we can then help define the marketing challenge or opportunity, research and analyze information, then recommend actions to improve your marketing while providing a rationale to support what we do. TAG is built on proven results and solid customer relationships, and like any good relationship, we want to get to know you and the relevant areas of your business:

• core business

• business philosophy

• mission statement

• history

• challenges

• reputation

• market share

• client base

• past media habits

• locations/divisions/number of employees

• company culture

The most important factor in this relationship is that we work with you to formulate and customize the most effective strategic approach that fits your needs and obtains the results you’re aiming for. We’ll help you look at new directions, market trends, future growth opportunities, the stage of your product or service in its life cycle, and how you can maintain a competitive edge to achieve your marketing goals. The key result of this cooperation is a detailed marketing plan that articulates your path to success.
