We specialize in three areas: performance marketing, social media & tech. We combine performance marketing and brand building to ensure maximum and sustainable success for our clients. Together we create measurable and sustainable success.
Our customers are just as diverse as we are and come from a wide range of industries. From start-ups and fashion to trade fairs and insurance companies, we find the right solution for everyone.
Carsten Schütte, Dipl.-Kfm., MBA
Founder & Managing Partner
Since 2003, I have worked with my team with great success for our clients in performance marketing, social media & tech.
Flexibility, short coordination paths, and a hands-on mentality are a matter of course for us. In addition to personal connection, these are the essential criteria for a successful partnership in digital marketing.
Social media becomes success media
How do you reach potential customers today? Via classic campaigns in traditional media? With one message for all? No way! For most companies and brands, the days of mass communication are over To reach people, you need to go where your target audience is. But Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, YouTube, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, and others are complex and have their laws.
We develop online campaigns and digital content designed for the various platforms’ different requirements and user needs. We have the know-how and the tools to capitalize on your target groups online. And while others are still celebrating winning hearts, you’re already winning market share with us.
How we do it? We work with the best!
We are a full-service digital agency with open space and without the usual industry apparatus. Working with industry professionals and the best specialists is in our DNA. And the approach means remote first.
To provide added value to our customers, the Hamburg core team is supported with skills and capacities from a remote network that has been tested for years. Together, more is possible. That’s why we are particularly proud of our excellent network of professionals from the print, digital, and commerce sectors, which enables effective synergies and attractive collaborations.
All employees are involved in relevant processes and customer projects via collaborative tools and virtual meetings. This allows us to ensure maximum flexibility and speed in an increasingly complex digital, ever-changing world.
Do you need a ten-person team to start an e-commerce project? No problem, there are no bottlenecks with us. The launch is completed, and two people are enough for the day-to-day business? Also, no problem! We scale up quickly and competently and down after the job is done.
