Jacobus Media, Inc. was founded in 2010 by Jake Matthews with the philosophy that the best marketing campaigns are those that drive results. Campaigns can be pretty or contain shock value, but deploying internet marketing campaigns that work for your bottom line requires data analysis, new concepts, creativity and hard work. We believe that automation of too many marketing messages and tasks creates a disconnect between your company’s brands and the consumer; leaving the human element in our marketing campaigns is critical to our success.
Our position in the Marketplace:
Finding the right size agency with relevant industry expertise is a challenge. Some agencies are too big assigning you to low level account managers. Some are overpriced and you may be low on their priority list. Smaller agencies may not have enough manpower, tools and services to handle your work and they don’t have the reach or will to bring in trusted partners for specific work. Nor do they know how to manage or oversee those partners. Our unique services are bolstered by matching you with partner agencies that have the exact skills and tools to help get results for your company. As industry veterans we have forged solid relationships with industry partners of varying size and specialties. It’s our knowledge on who to refer you and how to handle those relationsihips to that adds value in your search for the right agency services. We have the unique ability to pull in qualified partners when necessary and help manage those partners for you for a seemless experience.
