To commemorate Outsource Marketing’s 15th Anniversary, last fall we decided it might be fun—and a little cathartic—to think about the things we’ve learned since 1997.

This is a real picture of a former Outsource Marketing intern. No, he’s not dead. He’s drunk. Okay, we’d prefer our interns alive—and sober. Besides, dead interns would be irresponsible, wouldn’t get much done and would start to smell after awhile. Come to think of it, same goes for drunk interns. Seriously though, if you […]

We’ve been evangelizing Responsible Marketing for some time now, so infusing the idea into our new brand wasn’t just necessary—it was the responsible thing to do. Here’s our deck from our Re-Brand event last Wednesday night. Here’s our new logo and tagline: A screenshot from our new Outsource Marketing website: To see a little more […]

“Outsource Marketing is just like alcohol,” a client once told me. “Why is that?” I responded, intrigued. “When times are good, people want it. But when times are bad, people need it,” he said. “Marketing outsourcing seems like a recession-proof model—it’s the way to get marketing done in a tough economy.” I never really thought […]

The Top 7 […]
Who needs a movie? If you have a website, video content can dramatically improve your conversions. Here are a few testimonial videos that we’ve produced for Gene Juarez Academy. The following video is a self-promo for a small video production company, and it’s so bad, it’s downright entertaining. In fact, it’s been viewed more than […]
Last year, Outsource Marketing was recognized by King County as Best Workplace for Recycling. But when we made the decision to become a green business, one of the sticking points was with cleaners–because they seldom work very well, are expensive and are often hard to find.
