Marketing Frequently Asked Questions

Are you an ad agency? A marketing company? A fishing tackle shop?
If you need an ad agency, then we’re an ad agency. If you believe that there’s a stigma with ad agencies and you’d rather work with a marketing company, then we’re a marketing company. If you’re looking to buy a new Shimano reel, some Stren fishing line, a 6 ½’ All-Star rod and a few packages of 3” Berkley Gulp Shrimp in New Penny, then we can’t really help you. Well, unless you want us to follow you out to the Gulf.

What makes Brand Tackle different than other advertising agencies?

How do you compete with the big guys?
It’s simple. Your experience with the agency you choose is only as good as the account team and creative team assigned to your company. All agencies have talented people. In fact, we are continually impressed by our competition and often have “why didn’t I think of that” moments. That said, we can compete with the big guys because we can guarantee that you’ll always get to work with our “A” team. That’s a guarantee that agencies can’t claim. When you visit with one of our competitors you’ll often meet the “A” team, but you might not end up working with those same folks.

How much does it cost to do a (fill in the blank)?
How much does it cost to build a house? How many rooms do you need? Who’s going to live there? Will you have a pool? What about landscaping? How many visitors do you expect each year? Where will the house be built? Do you need a panic room? Or a mother-in-law room? (or is that the same thing?)

There are no standard costs in our business. Any agency or marketing firm that has a published list is either not giving you what you really need or charging you too much. After talking with you and figuring out what is needed to do the job, however, we will give you an estimate for our services. And more importantly, we’ll manage the work toward that estimate. We like to save surprises for Christmas and birthdays, not for when our clients open up their invoices.

Is it true that you can write off all of your fishing gear since you named your company Brand Tackle?
We wish!

How do I get started?
This is the easy part. Just click here to send us an e-mail and tell us a little about your needs. Or pick up the phone – we’ll be glad to schedule a time to talk about what you’re looking for in a marketing partner. And if you’re not ready to commit to a “marketing partner” and just want to get something done – we can help you too. What we lack in the traditional agency dogs and ponies, we’ll make up for in experience, common sense and smart work that gets results. And we’ve been told that we’re easy to work with – so that’s a plus.
