Why our agency hires/works with Entrepreneurs.

Last year we created Adhesive IP (IP = Intellectual Property) where we partner with a product/service that needs our help with branding, design, marketing, promotion, web development, social media, brand extensions, (sometimes act as their in-house marketing team) and we take a stake within their brand. Sometimes we get a wild hair and create our own product and partner with a VC, manufacturer, entrepreneur and take it to the streets.

All of us at Adhesive are entrepreneurs in some facet.  We have our own products, EastCoastersGuide, DinnerWithDave and a killer mustard in the works.  Our success has been largely contributed to surrounding ourselves with self-minded like folks from various industries and plenty of beer.


Why we dig entrepreneurs?

– Entrepreneurs know that every penny counts.

– They are willing to take on risk.

– They think in terms of ROI and metrics.

– They observe successful factors outside their industry of choice.

– They have less ego and are strategically minded.


That’s why Adhesive embraces entrepreneurs.

Adhesive is excited to announce that we are teaming up with Little Feet, a “one-for-one” business brand which actually gets it. Little Feet has a very simple business model, when you buy a soccer ball, they give a soccer ball to a child in need. In addition to soccer balls, they have teamed up with some coffee co-op’s and are now selling Little Feet coffee.

After meeting with Founder Trevor Slavick and Sales Director Mike Carr before their Thanksgiving “soccer ball drop” trip to Honduras, the brand asked us to handle the guerrilla marketing/advertising responsibilities. We are looking forward to working with the LF brands and recruiting more brand advocates.

For those who are looking to get in shape this year or shop more responsibly, Little Feet soccer balls can be purchased at your local Sports Chalet.

LF coffee can be purchased on the Little Feet website. Make sure to pass this one on!

RIP old slide-site-show, it’s been a great 4 years. “Slide-site-show” is what we referred to as our old website, it was a down n’ dirty HTML website that had a red arrow that allowed the end-user to click through our agency capabilities, services, credentials, etc. We still get compliments from people that is was very simple, to the point and tells us who you are. We knew it was not what we exactly wanted, but as many of you creatives and marketers know it’s not easy doing your own work. Seriously, we have been blessed with great clients and several projects that we haven’t had a chance to re-design our own website.

On the top of our “to-do” lists for some time now was to launch a killer SEO-friendly CMS site.

This website will allow us to:

-Showcase our newest projects.

-Put out meaningful content.

-Recruit more talent and form partnerships.

-Allow others to interact with us via social media, CRM and RSS.

-Get ranked higher among search engines.

-Score some hot women? Maybe not.
