We Power Your Startup Marketing
This is the continuation of your narrative, the engagement of your audience, and the establishment of your voice in the space. Good content marketing helps before it sells, and creates community before customers.
SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
Give Value. Get Value.
Where everyone's got a mouth and nobody's got any ears. We think social media marketing is about listening as much as talking, and making sure that when we are talking, we're being heard by the right people at the right time.
Powerful like Ox, Subtle like Fox.
We can get you the coverage you want, that exposes you to the customers you need. Placing content in your target publications, crafting press releases, and managing your social media footprint - we do it all.
Know thy brand identity.
What is your brand to whom? We help you establish your brand identity in 3 words, 1 sentence and 1 paragraph, and then make sure the internet reflects that identity. When you know who you are, it's time to tell the world.
We’re the Startup Marketers. When we see a scratch-off lottery ticket, we see content marketing, and when we see campaign collateral in our mailboxes we think about the cost of litter to the neighborhood, and the lack of an opt-out clause. Andy Warhol said, “Good business is the best art,” and the last 6 words of this paragraph are directly from Dali. The story telling, the marketing, it's part of everything everyone does and yet marketing is just an infinitely minute part of our personality.
Startup marketing is the most creative marketing genre. We market the ideas, the people, the movements, the products, the amazements, the sentences, the do goods, and the creativity that treats their communities to positive opportunities.
Our priorities are great offerings & great narratives.
At ArtMap Inc. we partner with startups & big thinkers: the people who build the product, will the timing, and start a movement that could take market share, or even create new markets.
We believe the best work comes from collaboration,
