Our value proposition as a B2B lead generation and marketing agency

We know that the role of marketing is to produce leads for the sales team.

We’re here for you. We understand the challenges you face building your brand, breaking into new markets and creating sales leads. You’re under pressure – we know that.

It’s not easy in today’s rapidly changing times where the foundations of business continue to move and your buyers’ preferences can shift on a dime. With more than 250 marketing projects behind us, we can’t say that we’ve seen everything – but we’ve put in the time and developed the experience needed to make projects a success.

Founded 10 years ago, we were one of the first agencies to focus solely on content marketing. Our clients include Capgemini, Autodesk, IBM and ServiceNow – plus hundreds of midmarket companies and raw startups.

 

Specializing in B2B software, services, SaaS and cloud businesses, we’re a full-service agency committed to delivering effective, holistic programs enabling you to achieve your objectives.

With every project we bring experience, energy, enthusiasm and a creative sparkle that will differentiate you from others. Like I said, we’re here for you.

Meet the team

  • Dave Brown

  • Co-founder

Yes, I’ve been in the business 25 years, but there’s not a day goes by when I’m not excited about finding new and better ways of engaging buyers and finding that creative edge for my clients.

And just between us, I do sometimes lie awake at night. But, I’m not tossing and turning, worrying and agonizing – I’m mulling over a new idea, a unique approach or novel concept and I can’t wait until morning comes, when I have my first espresso and can start work in one of the world’s greatest professions.

  • Mark Lennon

  • Co-founder

I bring 20+ years of software and services business experience to every marketing engagement. I thoroughly enjoy working with our clients. The “high” comes from helping them to build or improve their marketing machine and, of course, delivering better results.

The innovation and disruption taking place in marketing these days is exciting. It’s fun to figure out what’s new, what works, and how it can help our clients get an edge over the competition. This, and a few espressos, is what keep me going each day.

  • Keven Smith

  • Copywriter

Keven is convinced that crisp, clear language plays a major role in driving action and boosting response.

He held two staff copywriter positions in the software industry before offering himself to clients “a la carte” in 2003. Keven has now written copy for, oh, seven or eight FORTUNE 500 companies, as well as countless midmarket, small, and startup businesses in the software, hardware, consulting, financial services, fitness, telecom, and nonprofit industries.

Although Keven is technically a native of Phoenix, Arizona, he has moved around most of his life (average ZIP code: 76136). Keven is pretty sure he’s the only graduate of Curtis Institute of Music who’s ever worked with Espresso B2B. He also holds a Master of Professional Writing degree from the University of Southern California
