ADD also partners with APPY MARKETING led by Kathleen Rhodes. She is a veteran strategist and local Search Engine Optimization specialist. Kathleen focuses on making sure that local businesses have up-to-date directory listings, such as with Google My Business, and that they get great online reviews. Her outside-of-the-box thinking helps our clients stay ahead of the curve utilizing the newest technologies available. She’s extremely solutions oriented and we’ve come to believe the words “No” & “Can’t” do not exist in our vocabulary.
Building Brands, creating products, and driving sales is at our core. We aren’t a traditional consultancy whose end goal is to simply complete a deliverable.
Rather, we’re a self-motivated, senior level team that takes ownership of each and every one of our projects, “partnering” with our clients applying the same level of excitement, thoroughness and dedication as if the project was our very own.
