The EQ difference

You believe in uncompromising truth. We believe that’s a game changer and the reason we will help you fight for market share. Domination is overrated, and thoughtful interactions create loyalty – which is where we stand.  Share your vision with us, and you will receive honest professional marketing recommendations.

Since 1988, we have developed communication strategies for national organizations, government agencies, and the private sector. There’s no job too big or project too small we aren’t willing to tackle, as long as customer interest comes first…and we mean that. 

Marketing EQ is a team of experts who value time and know how to use it. We embrace complexities and assimilate mass data which is necessary to understand the complete picture. We believe your most important investment you can make is information infrastructure. We are dedicated to quality communication which means strategy and process are required formalities to give you an impeccable outcome.

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 means weighing all the factors between facts and figures, opportunities and constraints, and knowing where to draw the line. We all have them, but it’s how we use them that matters. We will help you create a premier presence with the most modest budget to sustain your growth. That’s our unique difference and promise! 

We are defenders of best practices, creators of smart solutions and avid audience builders. We are authentically and transparently marketing in balance.  We can’t wait to hear what’s new for you and how we can help.
