addONE Marketing was founded in 1998 as a resource to provide supplemental marketing support. Early projects were administrative in nature, including consumer data entry, POS tracking and proofreading. We performed any task that would free up marketing managers to focus on bigger picture initiatives. Our clients now had more time to think about strategy and to do their jobs more efficiently.
addONE quickly grew, providing more and more marketing resources. We took on larger roles: project-managing entire brand activations, leading strategic promotional planning, launching new products and even interfacing with key customers and marketing partners. As our responsibility levels increased, so did our level of talent. We were now supporting a wide variety of major brands, technology and other marketing related duties.
We are marketing people with a staffing company!
At addONE Marketing Solutions, our senior leadership is made up of seasoned marketers. We are marketers who know staffing and have extensive work experience in the ever changing marketing world.
