+ Why shouldn’t my brand just hire an in-house marketing director?

There’s nothing quite like an outside perspective. When you allow a new team with a variety of talents to take that burden off your shoulders, you can free up your own time. Wouldn’t you rather focus on what you do best while we do the rest? Plus, rather than relying on the limited skill set of one person, you have an entire team at your disposal for around the same price.

+ Why is marketing important?

Your brand can be amazing. Your products can blow minds. Your service can wow crowds. But it can’t do anything if no one knows about it. Stories are meant to be told!

+ Who is Rogue?

Rogue is our icon and the cutest French Bulldog around. Our owner Matt Barnes adopted Rogue in 2009, and he’s never looked back!

+ Can’t anyone do social media?

Sure! (If you have a phone, chances are you’re already “doing social media.”) But there’s a BIG difference between doing social media and doing it well. Doing social media the right way is both an art AND a science. Between a curated feed and helpful analytics, social media is a truly powerful, ever-evolving resource. We pride ourselves in staying up to date!

+ When should you rebrand?

Ask yourself two questions. First, does the description of my logo and branding match the description of my company? Second, is your branding timeless, easy to use and easily recognizable? If the answer to either of these questions is “no,” it might be time to make a change!
