We all want to be the next AirBnB or Dropbox, but getting there is a journey. The old-school stuff doesn't work quite like it once did. When working with elevate29, you’ll experience a mixture of the best of traditional marketing strategy plus the latest in growth hacking, which are designed to dominate the market and aimed at driving mass adoption quickly - all requirements for building a successful company these days.
Who We Help
We like working with startups who are doing something disruptive. They have cash to spend on conquering the world, but they either lack the time or know-how to go to market.
To achieve mass adoption, the investment is real and requires commitment. And, you should see a return - a big one.
For our non-profit friends, we have special programs. Reach out to us for more information.
How We Do It
elevate29 is not just another ivory-tower consulting firm. Don't get us wrong. We are very strategic and tend to figure out how to blow up an industry in a big way. But, we get in the trenches along side you as well. And, what makes us really unique is that we know how to integrate across the various online marketing channels to maximize your return in all areas. Secondly, we’re a bit fixated on our marketing efforts translating to revenue. We understand that some programs only produce a soft ROI, but at the end of the day, businesses need cash.
What we’ve found to be most intriguing is that many early-stage companies usually have little idea as to how much they should budget for marketing and digital marketing. This tends to occur because the majority of startups are usually founded by technical folks. Marketing is a strange, new world to them. Their approach is a bit nebulous with no focus. The results show it. Money is wasted. But, we can help.
One common approach that our clients enjoy includes architecting how they go to market, developing the programs (web, content marketing, social media and search) and authoring the budget to achieve stated results. We oversee the various service providers and help execute on the plan. Finally, we monitor it on an ongoing basis. We can help at the macro or micro levels, and no project is too small.
Finally, if "Growth Hacking" is a new term to you, check out this article that helps explain the importance.

What will you be, when you are all grown up?
Karen E. Pellegrin
20+ years of working with startups makes me, let's see, about 100+ in dog years. I've learned that "tried and true" doesn't always work in a world characterized by what's new.
If you are a young firm with strong ideas and more than your fair share of passion, elevate29 and I can guide you to find your voice, authority, niche and an audience that cares about you as much as you care about them.
I call myself a growth hacker. It's a (sometimes intiutive) blend of marketing, iterative development, product marketing, social, strategy, tech and people that accelerates learning curves and wins adoption faster. As I see it, brands (and the new companies that fuel them) are all about the love that they give - and the love that they get back.
The trick/skill is to get really good really fast at massively delivering beyond what your customers want. The "old" way was to sell better. The "new" way means that you have to BE better. Together, that's what we'll achieve.
