Helping brands scale. At speed.

We bring the
muscle & flexibility
to help your business grow. 

Helping brands grow


Just what you need. Exactly when you need it.


We are happy to step in and help when you need it and where you need it. Need us to work on site? That’s no problem. Or, if you need a virtual team or extension to your current one, we can do that, too. We’re not a 9am-5pm team. We can help you “work” the timezone difference so that we can accomplish things while you sleep.


Without the overheads of large agency structures, keep costs down so you pay for just what you need and nothing you don’t. Salaried staff can cost an average of +25-30% over base from the additional costs of benefits, office space, travel, vacation, sick day, payroll taxes and training. By using Flex, you’re actually saving money from Day 1.

Lead Major Initiatives

New product or service launch, new business pitch, major events, big announcements, planning cycles – these types of initiatives can distract both you and your staff from the day-to-day business. We can step in and plug the hole on leading major initiatives or simply in plugging the hole on the day-to-day.

Skills Gap / Training

Hiring full-time niche skills can be expensive. Our team cover a variety of areas of expertise and can help fill the gap for special marketing requirements you may have.

Fresh Thinking & New Ideas

The benefit of objectivity is amazing. We can bring a unique viewpoint to the challenges you face.

Added Focus

If your marketing is becoming a distraction from running your business, let us take the worry out of it for you. We will be focused on the task at hand to get it done so you can focus on your bottom line.
