Our Services

Custom Email Templates

Your email content paired with our custom design will look beautiful, professional, and relevant—showing your subscribers a great first impression every time. After we get to know each other, and your goals—our team of creative designers will provide you with different approaches to your custom email design. Think of your email marketing as an extension of your team that nurtures your leads and eventually generates revenue. We can help you craft those emails that will work for you, just as a salesperson would.

Email Automation

Creating value for your customers with any digital marketing effort can be a challenge. We can help craft the best story for a valuable experience with automation. Whether we are crafting a brand new email design or building upon your current campaign, we will review your specific setup and make any customized suggestions and improvements necessary.

Lead Capture

We will discuss your lead-generation process and efforts to find out how you’re currently getting leads. This will help us define what has been working and what has not as well as what email-related improvements we can make to reach your goals.

Responsive Coding & Flexible Design

Whether we’re starting from scratch and coding your email from the ground-up or we’re starting out with a MailChimp pre-built template, we’ll make sure it works across all platforms. While email design shows up slightly different in every individual mailbox, we’ll test across a variety of devices and applications for the best experience possible. A “plus” about using MailChimp templates is you have the ability to use the drag-and-drop email designer to build to suit your needs.

Advanced Analytics

You’ll receive advanced reporting features you can access anytime, anywhere. You can monitor sales and website activity using Google Analytics. That means we can learn from, refine, and optimize your email campaigns to grow your business.


Connect your store with MailChimp’s e-commerce integrations, and create targeted email or ad campaigns, automate helpful product follow-ups and send back-in-stock messaging.

Let’s create a custom email solution … just for you!
