Half of the team brings skills of trouble-shooting, research, marketing plans, strategies, promotional calendars, media buying, sales consulting and solutions to challenges that businesses face. Time is taken to get to know each client and their business in depth, and assistance is provided with implementation of all marketing efforts.

Their work can be in the form of graphic design, web design, video production, photography, creative writing, or social media.
