I Googled My Business, Where Did It Go?

No Bullshit, Nexus 6 Is The Best Place I Have Ever Worked!

Being close to 50 years old while tallying up residences in 7 different states and three other countries besides the US, you can imagine I’ve worked at quite a few different places. Here in Des Moines specifically, I’ve led creative efforts at a couple of different tv stations and steered strategy at other marketing and advertising agencies. Since landing as business partners with one of the most creative folks I know, Dave Makin, at Nexus 6, we’ve developed the No Bullshit Guarantee (NBG).

The Gap of Disappointment

The Gap of Disappointment As an agency, our mission is to see the success in everything we do, and just like everyone else, love when that happens relatively quickly. Although, we still embrace our no BS guarantee and advise that not everything happens overnight.  It’s been 5 years since I started this thing on nothing more than an 11” refurbished …

Have you ever seen someone naked that you didn’t care to? I did once, it was in the locker room at the YMCA and I saw a colleague of mine, let’s call him Butch, strutting around stark naked.

Human-Centric Marketing

My suggestions for 2019, get out there and make some new friends, show off the human side of your company, and don’t be afraid of the tech wave that’s coming.

A computer.

But, no seriously, we use Wordpress. It’s widely used, open source, and easy to host anywhere if you ever decide you hate us.

We work with companies from all industries that are all sizes. Our requirements for working together is simple. We don’t hate each other and we believe that we can provide real results.

Yes we do. From capturing the footage to editing it into its final form, all our work is done here.

Hell yes you do. We get it, some companies will write you a blog but claim that they own the content as a way to retain your business, that’s bullshit and we don’t play that game. It’s yours to keep once you’ve paid for it.

Firstly, there is no cost to meet with us and talk about what we can do for you. Second, each and every quote is custom. We don’t prepackage anything. We can however say that our base rate is $100/hr, which is a hell of a lot lower than most you will find out there.

Apart from having implications in the movie Blade Runner (where the company gets its name) we ourselves are somewhat of a unicorn in the fact that we offer a fair price for top tier services. We pretty humble, regardless of how many awards we’ve won.
