Smart Internet Marketing for Growing Companies
Our company was founded in 2002, under the name of DataSmith Consulting, when founder Marisa Smith left her job at the University of Michigan to pursue her dream of owning her own business. Over the years, our company has evolved from a one-woman software development company into a full-service marketing firm with a strong culture, great clients, and a top-notch team.
We are committed to helping growing businesses develop and execute inbound marketing strategies that complement their visions and provide measurable results. Our clients understand that it takes a wide range of skills to market effectively online, and that it doesn’t make sense for most growing companies to hire, train, and support a large team of marketing experts in-house. Instead, they’ve selected The Whole Brain Group to function as their virtual marketing department – providing website design and development, social media, content, and pay-per-click expertise with a strong focus on delivering measurable results.
Our most successful clients view us as a partner in their growth, because they know we are passionate about taking an integrated approach to helping them achieve their business goals, and we strive to combine the logical & tactical (Left Brain) with the creative (Right Brain) to achieve Whole Brain Goodness!
