Our mission is to provide your business with an engaging, relevant, effective social media presence that furthers your overall marketing goals.

And unlike the extra-large agencies, the personal attention and measurable results come at a reasonable price point with no contracts.
What’s With the Name?
There is something called the Hundredth Monkey Phenomenon (no kidding–Google it!).
In the 1950s, on a small island in Japan, scientists were studying a colony of monkeys. One of the monkeys discovered that if she took her sand covered sweet potato to the stream, she could wash it, and it became more enjoyable to eat. Little by little, the other monkeys took up this same behavior. The scientists reported that by around the “hundredth monkey” the whole colony just got it–it became a new behavior that was accepted and practiced by the whole colony.
We love this story because we believe human behavior, especially on social media, reflects that colony of monkeys’ behavior. Once a message is liked, shared, tweeted and catches fire, there’s no stopping the masses from getting your message, hearing your voice, and recognizing your brand. It is a phenomenon that we humans thrive on and so can your company’s growth.
