Portland Advertising and Marketing

Our Advertising and Marketing Services

Advertising and marketing are ways to get the story of your business or nonprofit out into the world to the people who can support you – your customers, clients, donors, etc. This includes print ads, billboards, guerrilla marketing campaigns, video and photography, digital advertising, email marketing campaigns, SEO, PPC, social media strategy, and much more. Some of this we do in house, some we use our team of talented subcontractors for. We can offer an overall marketing strategy with implementation of all the pieces, or simply support you with the bits you can’t do in-house. Whatever you need, Ink Stained Creative is your Portland advertising and marketing team.

Creative advertising is where we thrive. We love coming up with funny, unusual, striking, or though provoking concepts and seeing them in print or in the digital word – in local newspapers, banner ads, postcard mailers, emails and, hopefully soon, billboards and more video.

SEO and digital ad buys are also incredible powerful tools for our clients – finding your customers where they spend their time and do their shopping (largely the internet). We work with some of the best specialists in the business to implement these important pieces of our clients’ marketing strategies.

To figure out what advertising or marketing your business or nonprofit needs, we research your field, your competitors, and your budget, then come up with a plan to most efficiently get the word out.

Our Portland Advertising and Marketing Team

The core of our team is copywriter Dave Garlock and graphic designer Elin McLain. We come up with ad concepts and copy, and implement them for print or digital advertising across a variety of platforms, including social media. For PPC, SEO and other digital marketing, we often use Blue Trail Marketing – some of the best in the business. Other subcontractors such as photographers, videographers and search ad experts round out the rest of the marketing and advertising skillset needed to serve your every need.
