Established in 2011 as KD Marketing, Kim and Sam Davis developed a boutique marketing agency to serve Cleveland County and the surrounding area. With their 5th Anniversary in October 2016 they knew that their current name/brand was not as creative or representative of whom they are in the market place. After research and asking the same questions they ask their clients, a new name and logo were developed and a new website was designed. The firm brings an eclectic array of experiences that allows them to look at each client’s needs from many angles. They provide strategic, creative and effective marketing plans and ideas for their trusted clients. Much like the dragonfly, the team is consistently looking at what is new and fresh around them, always searching for ideas and tools that meet the needs of their clients.
