From the inception of your marketing needs beginning with strong branding, through advertising your brand on social media and converting your fans into loyal customers on your website – Clever Dog Creative is the marketing firm training your customers to

Come. Sit. Stay.

Brenda O'Brien, Knockerball Fox Cities

Clever Dog helped Mt Zion get started in social media and redesigned our web page. We have seen immediate results with many Facebook and Web friends. New visitors have mentioned both our web page and Facebook!

The Clever Dog team is great. They meet you where you are and help you with the little things like social media posts and marketing collateral; but are best used for overall marketing strategy and implementation. They work within your budget and genuinely care about your organization. Plus, they are fun to work with!
