This means that Pop-Dot isn’t your typical marketing firm. WE GO DEEPER. We’re not an old-school advertising agency. OUR APPROACH IS EVOLVED. And we’re not your run-of-the-mill branding company. WE’RE STRATEGIC, AND WE INNOVATE.

Every day we’re inspired by a simple belief: YOUR SUCCESS ENSURES OUR SUCCESS. It’s the reason Pop-Dot exists, and it’s the reason our approach to your business is so different. Shared victories foster long-term partnerships, and that’s precisely how Pop-Dot is successful.

We’re THINKERS and we’re CREATORS. We’re history buffs, interested observers of psychology, artists and philosophers. In the end, we’re business people, just like you. And we thrive at the crossroads of Creativity and Commerce.

In The Words Of Our Clients

Terrace Custom Builders

“When we decided the time had come to re-evaluate our company’s image and messaging, we selected Pop-Dot. We were impressed by their expertise in branding and how well they translated their clients’ essence into visual design and verbal/written messages. Also, our target customers are female and Pop-Dot has a well-known reputation for being able to communicate to women.

In working with Pop-Dot, we discovered one of the reasons behind their success. They get to know YOU as a client, they research YOUR industry, YOUR competition and YOUR customers. They really care. Another secret I discovered was that they pay attention to the emotional side of things, just as much as the rational.

I would certainly recommend Pop-Dot to any organization looking to take their enterprise to the next level. What you get in return is worth every penny you‘ll pay for their services.”
