Forty Years After Our Agency Was Founded, the Fire Still Burns.
Our founders (those serious looking young men in the picture below) believed that creativity could make advertising work harder and get better results. They were right.
We’ve stayed true to that core philosophy over the years for one simple reason: Creativity works. People notice things that are different. Bland, unimaginative campaigns that blend in with the rest of the clutter aren’t noticed and are a waste of money, pure and simple. That’s not our style. We do work that gets noticed and gets results.
Next to creativity, our biggest point of difference is the experience and skills of our people. Maris, West & Baker is a full-service agency with creative, marketing strategy, public relations, website development, media planning and buying, search marketing, e-mail marketing, SEO and production experts on staff. We could add several more items to the list, but you get the picture.
Our client list is made up of a diverse range of business, non-profit and government accounts. Most of them are based in Mississippi. That’s our home, and we like to help our neighbors succeed.
We also like to help our state become better, healthier, stronger and more competitive. No agency in Mississippi has more social marketing experience than us. We’ve taken on some of our state’s toughest social issues – everything from youth tobacco use to teen pregnancy. Tough problems, but we’re in this for the long-haul.
In the process, we’ve learned that this business isn’t just about selling. Marketing can surprise, entertain, inform and engage. Sometimes it can even change people’s lives for the better. Do you like the way we think? Talk to us.
