Our thoughtful, creative approach and digital marketing strategy has been perfected over the last ten years. It is a process that ensures we achieve real business results with an emphasis on building trust, confidence, and understanding.
Unlike many creative agencies, we lead with a strong business acumen and deep understanding of marketing. Our process-driven, smart, methodical, and cost effective approach will provide a client experience unlike any other. In addition, we are extremely transparent as we present realistic expectations of the time and energy needed to achieve the most ideal results.
The approach we take to every project starts from the unique perspective of each business owner and associate we partner with. Our belief is that no matter how visually appealing or creatively concocted our solutions are, they haven’t done the job if the client doesn’t experience ample ROI.
Conducting Market/Client Research
TAP takes a research-intensive approach to digital marketing strategy. We believe it is the best way to continuously grow as marketers and provide our clients with the competitive advantages they need to grow as well. Extensive research allows us to define and clarify your:

- Perceptions- What do people think of your company?
Along with a deep dive into your company’s brand, we will perform a thorough analysis of competitor brands and digital marketing strategies. This affords us the insights we need to make your company stand out in the market.
Defining the Project Deliverables
We like to approach each project from a unique perspective, where communication is personalized and cooperative. To do good work for your company, we must understand who you are and what your goals are. Once we have a thorough understanding of your business, we will work with you and your team to:
