We live by our 6 Core Values

Treat Clients Like Family

We believe that the roots of great success are great relationships, which is why with us, you get a team — not just a vendor. Your challenges become our challenges and we commit to serving you and your team like you’re one of us.

Be Ridiculously Helpful

You know that feeling you get when you shop at a Trader Joe’s, get helped on the side of the road by AAA, or talk to a Zappos customer service representative? These brands propagate a kind of service that is responsive, personal, and easy — and we strive to emulate them (and then some).

Challenge Conventional Thinking

There’s a lot of fluffy advice thrown around in the marketing technology space (not to mention all the jargon)! Our team researches, tests, and thinks on repeat to bring you marketing strategies that are contextually relevant to your needs — let’s just say we’re healthily skeptical about “industry best practices.”

Treasure Transparency

Authenticity has become such a buzzword these days, but we do pride ourselves in being honest and forthcoming in our pricing, in our strategic recommendations, in our services, and in our projected outcomes. Most of our team members are human (all except Calvin), which means that every once and a while we make mistakes. When we do, we let you know immediately and collaborate on how to best reconcile the situation.

Adapt and Improve

Just when you think you’ve figured out how to increase organic leads from SEO or generate more prospects through Social Ads, Google and Facebook pull a fast one on you and change their algorithms — how rude. At DD, our clients trust us to adapt and improve our strategic game plans, our products, and our services to maximize their investment as the digital landscape morphs.

Make it Fridge-Worthy

Excellence is what we strive for in everything that we create — whether it be a blog posts, a website, an eBook, or a chatbot. Our goal is to execute well-thought-out strategies that produce exceptional pieces of content which generate remarkable results.
