ST. LOUIS, Jan. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For every company that has been frustrated with an advertising agency's one-size-fits-all solution or unable to identify the right marketing resource in a fractured freelance community, there's a new option. Medici Marketplace, "the un-agency," is a marketing and media service cooperative comprised of 30 companies offering a united front against uninspired and inefficient marketing.
All Medici Marketplace companies are members of Medici MediaSpace, a co-working community founded by Brian Lunt and Josh Levey, and located in St. Louis. By connecting vetted experts in strategy, digital, creative marketing, and media, and giving them the space to collaborate and create, this co-op approach offers clients access to a wider breadth of talent – at a cost that's more affordable than a traditional agency.
Highly-experienced Marketplace leaders work closely with each client to develop a focused marketing strategy and only then piece together the tools and talent that can best bring that plan to life. Through this unified effort, each partner becomes deeply invested in the client's success to deliver effective solutions that provide real, measurable value.
For Marketplace managing partner Brett C. Kline, who worked on the client-side as a marketing executive in the gaming and hospitality industry for almost 20 years, the format eliminates many of the issues he faced throughout his career.
"I spent years in strategy sessions with agencies, and a rare few really took the time to truly understand the business or had the ability to quickly identify opportunities that could impact the performance of the business. The Marketplace is more focused on the relationship with our client and takes a 'roll-up-your-sleeves' approach with every engagement. When 30 companies are working together, they're not looking out for themselves – they're focused on delivering the best results to our clients."
Just as important as serving clients, the Marketplace offers smaller, and in some cases single-focused, marketing companies the opportunity to compete against bigger agencies by allowing them to collaborate with fellow marketers in a variety of disciplines. For clients, this alliance means more bang for their buck with greater results.
Said Matt D'Rion, Marketplace member and founder of Worry Free Marketing, "The Marketplace model is lean like the freelancer model, yet far more professional and value-driven, like working with an agency."
