Where did it all begin? Let’s cut to the chase. COVID. That is, COVID combined with the burning desire of a few like-minded brand strategy experts to start an ad agency without actually starting an “ad agency.”
You see, the forced virtual collaboration of the pandemic made us realize something: We simply didn’t need employees, departments, or big office spaces to give our clients market-dominating strategies and consumer-captivating campaigns. It was working better for them. And we wondered if we could make it work way better for way more of them.
So we tried it, assessed it, and tweaked it. Then we tried it some more. And boom, The Hive was born.
Today, it’s not that we don’t meet face-to-face, huddle at real whiteboards, share a few pints, or exchange actual knuckle bumps. (We do all that on the regular.) It’s that without all the overhead of a traditional ad agency, we don’t have to sell our clients a single solution or a solitary service they don’t need just because we need to make payroll or maintain a department.
Our clients seem to think that’s pretty sweet. We think you will, too.
So, welcome to The Hive. If you lead a brand and you’re ready to think more strategically and spend more intelligently, we think you owe it to yourself to hear our approach.
If you’re a collaboration-minded consultant or a top-notch freelance creative and you have a client-base you’d like to grow, we think you might find something of a home with The Hive.
