OUR HISTORY

Social Strategy1 was founded in 2011 and began primarily as a data analytics and social media listening company, providing our clients with actionable insights and business intelligence derived from big data and social media monitoring.

We’ve since expanded into a full-service digital marketing agency.  From boosting online traffic and brand awareness, to generating qualified leads and increasing sales, our online marketing company will help your business grow with successful marketing, advertising, content creation, and website services.

As a company, we’ve sworn to be uncompromising in our dedication to quality and attention to detail.  We’re perfectly satisfied being a smaller agency, allowing us to be more nimble and personable than larger firms in order to better serve our clients and continually deliver optimal results.  We are grateful to be able to share our clients’ dedication to their products and services and commit to using our skills to showcase them in their best light.
