The EQ difference

Marketing is complex, and how your story is told in your brand, content, design, advertising and website determines the quality of customers who find you. When all of these pieces are brought together correctly, there’s no need for a silver bullet. The quality of communication we produce translates into brand communication that delivers exponential results. We are accountable for our actions and our efforts reduce your financial risk and increase long-term effectiveness. 

Marketing EQ was born out of the needs and requests of many small businesses to achieve marketing balance. Market Equilibrium in retail means supply is in equal proportion to demand so there is neither loss nor waste. Marketing EQ is all about striking a happy medium between your needs and the resources required to sustain your growth! That’s pretty unique for a small agency.

We are defenders of best practices, balanced budgets, smart solutions and finding the right audiences. We are marketing in balance. If you are looking for a numbers-driven and creative team, please say hello!
