Responsibly rebellious.

Call us rule breakers. Especially when the rules say, “Clients don’t need to know where the ad budget is going.” We flipped that paradigm with analysis, optimization, and transparency. And with content that makes your audience feel understood. Fostering trust, loyalty, and evangelism.

Our Value

Wherever you are in the marketing lifecycle, from mega-brands to sub-brands, from launches to line extensions, we’ll help you change the conversation, giving your brand a competitive edge. And giving you peace of mind. Because being responsibly rebellious in digital marketing means that we’re not just telling you we’re moving the needle. We’re showing you, too.

Where our story begins.

Digital Radar Marketing was born in the fall of 2017 in Dayton, Ohio and quickly expanded to Phoenix, Arizona in 2018.

We were once Fortune 100 leaders who grew increasingly frustrated by the experiences we had with different agencies. Many agencies craft a solution without having a clear understanding of the client’s objective leading to a disconnect in expectations vs results. The heartache from seeing so many agencies with a lack of integrity toward their clients lead us to realize we could do it better in a more quantifiable approach.

Call it luck. Call it serendipity. But we all found each other. A group of misfits that wanted to do right by our clients and genuinely connect with an audience. sign settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.
