11 Jun Grasshopper Marketing opens Amelia Island marketing office
Grasshopper Marketing, an Atlanta based agency founded in 2005 and specializing in on demand marketing for companies with understaffed marketing departments, recently expanded into the Jacksonville area, opening an office in Amelia Island, Florida in June. The agency’s leadership is thrilled with the opportunities afforded by the similarities between the Jacksonville and Atlanta markets.
Shannon Kenner, one of Grasshopper’s managing partners, offers insight into the move. “By operating an office in the Jacksonville-Fernandina Beach area, we will be better able to leverage our marketing expertise in healthcare, financial and B2B and B2C services, which coincides well with so many of the leading industries in Northeast Florida. It also allows us to solidify our overall presence as a leading non-traditional agency in the greater Southeast. Not to oversimplify it, but Jacksonville marketing is akin to Atlanta marketing. The two regions understand each other, much more so than say San Francisco and New York. We love being in both places.”
Explaining why Grasshopper matters in an industry forced by changes in technology and communication to reinvent itself, Kenner continues, “More and more companies, small and big, need first-rank marketing that delivers when needed without budgetary waste. This can’t be delivered by traditional agencies, which are chiefly in business to get big on retainers from clients who don’t always get their money’s worth. For businesses that need effective, on-demand results, lean and nimble marketing agencies are the answer. We’re confident businesses in the Jacksonville-Amelia area will love this approach as much as our Atlanta clients.”
