The New Media World

Statistics show that nearly 95 percent of major business decisions made today are being vetted or occurring online.  As a result, DEANE / SMITH is one of just a few agencies that has our own in-house IT marketing team dedicated to enabling customized e-campaigns and electronic communication plans. Our expertise lies in our ability to create resourceful campaigns that employ both traditional and e-media strategies.

Our strategies are always designed to meet business goals, reach target audiences and work hand-in-hand with sales initiatives. Let us focus on the marketing, so you can be free to do what we know is most important to you – leading your company and managing profitability.

Partnering with Gray Public Relations & Mad Genius

Deane | Smith is affiliated with Gray Public Relations, based in Franklin, Tenn., which partnered to leverage their growing business and expand client service across the Southeast and throughout the nation.

Under the agreement – a shared services affiliation – the two firms serve an expanding roster of clients, and the partnership allows both agencies to sharpen their vision and leverage new business opportunities.

In 2013, Deane | Smith also formed a similar strategic alliance with Mad Genius, a full-service design, print, digital, video production and branding firm. This fusion allows these agencies to leverage growing business across the Southeast and throughout the nation. The three firms now have more than 30 employees in four offices nationwide to serve a growing roster of clients.
