Our promise: you’ll never have to re-explain “what you do”

Marketing agencies love to talk about the tactics and channels that make them great. We like tactics and channels too — but what good are they if they deliver the wrong message or reach the wrong audience?

What sets us apart is our ability to really get our clients quickly so we know how to speak their language and talk to their customers. This is how we earn the right to be considered trusted partners — and how we shorten the timeline to execution.

Our story

The beginnings of Simple Machines Marketing go back to 2008, when Switchfast Technologies launched a marketing campaign in order to stay competitive through the economic recession. While other companies shrank, Switchfast added new clients and new employees. This success in spite of the odds drew the attention of several existing clients – who wondered if they could get some help with their own marketing.

Before long, Switchfast was sourcing its marketing department to some of its current technology clients. In February 2012, when it was apparent that Switchfast’s “Marketing Services Department” was here to stay, Simple Machines Marketing officially launched.
