Raleigh’s Digital Marketing Agency

We are a full-service digital marketing agency serving the Raleigh area with customized solutions using a proven, scalable process that produces real, measurable results.

We set out on this journey for one reason—to implement the best creative marketing strategies that help people find products and services that improve their daily lives.

Agency Philosophy

Our digital marketing agency has been constructed around the unique design of a hexagon. The hexagon is a naturally-occurring shape in the world—one found in the workplace of nature’s most efficient worker, the honeybee.

Our hard work and relentless pursuit of unique communication solutions calls to mind the qualities of a honeybee and is symbolically represented by the hexagon.

A hexagon is the most efficient shape for filling a space with the least amount of material used. It is representative of a structure that wastes neither space or energy. In working with us, you'll soon find why we have adopted the six-sided shape as our own.

The six principles of TAP's hexagon:

  1. Communication- Open conversation throughout every project stage to form a true client partnership.
  2. Balance- Meet the expectations of the client by delivering on both wants and needs.
  3. Integration- Combine cutting-edge tools with a tried-and-true strategy to achieve a remarkable sales boost.
  4. Truth- Remain transparent in all procedures and deliver a product that meets and exceeds predetermined goals.
  5. Dependability- Maintain reliable procedures that produce a consistent, high-quality level of work for every client.
  6. Efficiency- Waste no time or resource in providing the client with an exceptionally unique and valuable product.
