Who we are
The Social Wall is a Portland based marketing firm providing Internet marketing and social media solutions.
As marketing experts, we have had the (dis)pleasure of working for some large internet marketing corporations. The quality of the marketing campaigns we were able to provide to clients was mediocre at best and completely out of our hands.
Because Norm has been a longterm business owner, he knows the tremendous value of marketing and advertising as well as the human connection. These are the cornerstones of any business meaning that we understand and respect that.
Katie holds a BS in Psychology from the University of Oregon, and maintains a membership to the American Marketing Association. Relatively fresh off of the "college bandwagon" you don't need to tell her how important online presence is. Having someone who is in the know about social media sites and communication forums such as blogging, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn will be invaluable to your company or organization.
Why we do it
Every business will fail without marketing. Why? Because this is how you communicate with your customers!
Effective marketing not only targets customers, but it assists with brand management.
Here are a few companies we bet you've heard of:
- Proctor & Gamble Co. Spent almost 4.19 billion in advertising/marketing for the United States alone in 2010.
- Sony Corporation Spent 1.21 billion in advertising/marketing for the United States alone in 2010.
- CocaCola Co. Spent $711.2 million in advertising/marketing for the United States alone in 2010.
Why do these companies spend so much of their revenue on consistent marketing campaigns? They do it because it works!
