Small businesses don’t always yield small results and that is apparent in the current and continued success of many of Charleston’s finest digital marketing firms. We no longer live in a society that can affirm that bigger always means better, and that is apparent with companies like, Cobble Hill, Lou Hammond, Push Digital, Fuzzco and Hook. These seemingly small marketing firms have grown and are continuing to expand their networks beyond Charleston with no limitations on future success.
Cobble Hill: A company aiming to connect with audiences through intelligent design, marketing and technology.
Having great success with their current clients including Jack Rudy Cocktail Co., Le Creuset and Draper James, to name a few, Cobble Hill continues to climb to the top. In their most recent venture with Cynthia Rowley, a local women’s clothing boutique specializing in vanguard and edgy styles, Cobble Hill has far exceeded expectations in elevating their clients’ digital presence and overall sales. They prepared the site to handle high volume traffic and to be effortlessly updated as needed.
Cobble Hill applies their user experience analysis and also, utilizes Google Analytic tracking for a better understanding of user trends, direction, and sales seasons. The post-launch of the website not only increased sales but did so exponentially. If you’re looking to step up your fashion game, check out the Cynthia Rowley website.
Lou Hammond Group: A “jack-of-all” company, focusing on public relations, branding, digital marketing, creative services and strategic planning.

A marketing company making headlines on two opposite sides of the map, having one office based out of Portland, Oregon and the other out of Charleston, South Carolina, Fuzzco is slowly but surely becoming a digital Goliath in the industry.

Just a few of their capabilities include naming, branding, web design and development, e-commerce, strategy, packaging, illustration, photography, and video.

Hook: A company with a wholehearted belief that great creative is more valuable than media dollars
Yet another seemingly “small” marketing firm in Charleston, Hook has been growing since their inception. Like its other digital marketing counterparts, Hook has continually challenged the status quo and far exceeded the expectations for a typical small business. Comprised of a staff of creative thinkers and strategists that believe that all brands should be different while also ensuring they remain relevant and appealing to the consumer.
Hook has coined some of what they believe are the most important rules to follow in digital marketing,
- Be different, people tend to remember the guy with the Mohawk more than the guy with the 9 to 5 haircut.
- Bite your tongue; make sure the timing for your message is right.
- Speak the same language as the consumer, even if it feels foreign.
- Drink the Kool-Aid. Have confidence in the brand.
- Scream while others are silent. Stand out from the crowd.
- Be willing to take risks, the bigger the risk…the bigger the reward.
Hook has some pretty great rules to follow for a successful marketing campaign but ironically relate on a personal level as well! If you feel like taking a look at what this company is really about, their website captures that feeling.
