Branding and Marketing Firm with 26% Profit Margin
Fully trained and adaptable staff!
This multi-faceted branding, advertising, and marketing firm has a fully trained core staff and the ability to adapt to any market ebb and flow thanks to consultants and freelance workers being contracted as needed. The core staff is comprised of seasoned senior executives who have worked for large global advertising agencies. With a 29% profit margin, it’s fair to say that their work experience and dedication to the field is paying off. This agency provides all of the marketing services that a company could need including brand strategy, campaign development and implementation, web development, content marketing in television, print, digital, and social media, media planning and buying, and account-based marketing. With over $1.9M in assets and over $8M in annual revenue for the past 3 consecutive years, the possibilities that new owners have with this business are seemingly endless.
Primarily working with financial/retirement services, insurance, technology and healthcare categories, this agency is involved in industries that are playing an important role right now and using this opportunity to catch up in the digital space. The core team consists of 30 full-time senior creative copy, creative art, strategy, and client service staff. The typical project scope runs from $20,000 to $150,000. With current assets and staff, low-cost growth opportunities include continuing to build client relationships with blue chip clients, and expanding outside of the current clientele focus. The three owners currently handle client relationships, financial management, and creative products; they are willing to stay on for up to three years and do a promissory note of 5% plus an equity roll of 10%.
Priced at $11,500,000, this company is prime for purchase for anyone who wants to get involved in something proven and profitable. By continuing to build new client relationships, while cultivating existing connections, a new owner could certainly take this company to the next level.
