About

Strategic marketing for David brands competing against Goliaths

 

Our Goal

 

We believe innovation powers human progress.  Social Currency exists to help your innovation thrive. Think of us as a slingshot.

How We Started

The Social Currency founders worked together at a startup, launching two challenger consumer brands. We were challenged with winning share of voice against multimillion-dollar marketing campaigns. The traditional sales and marketing tactics used by our Goliath competitors didn't work for our challenger brands. We had to build breakthrough campaigns and out-maneuver the competition. We said then that eventually we'd take our lessons learned to other startups. 10 years later, here we are.

Philosophy

 

We're not a big agency and we like it that way. We operate lean and we know the metrics to track to specific business objectives. We follow Lean Startup, a methodology for launching new products that helps eliminate wasteful spend, reduce risk, and get to market faster. Certifications? We've got those from Gartner, SiriusDecisions, Hubspot, the Association of National Advertisers and the 4 A's.
