Tampa Bay, FL (November 13, 2012) – Visual Alliance Media, a leading Tampa interactive marketing agency specializing in social media marketing, Moonstruck Marketing Group, a full service design studio and Good Dog/Bad Dog Creative Design, a creative design agency, are pleased to announce the merging of their three companies to create Exakt Marketing, a full service Tampa marketing agency.
Prior to the merger, each company developed a strong reputation for their relationship-focused approach and ability to help their clients improve bottom line results through creative solutions within each of their areas of expertise. “This merger allows us to leverage all that we’ve built individually in new and exciting ways, and to now offer clients a complete suite of marketing services,” commented Derek Lee, CEO & Partner of Exakt Marketing. “From branding, to graphic design, to website development, to search engine optimization, to social media marketing, to online reputation management … our in-house team is now able to provide all of these services in an integrated fashion for clients.”
As a result of the merger, the company expects to add up to seven new marketing professionals over the next two years. “We’ve already received a great response from our current clients and have gained our first two new clients as Exakt Marketing. Given our expanded platform, we expect to see this trend continue and are thankful for the opportunity to contribute to our local Tampa Bay economy,” remarked Lee.
The new company works with clients across several different market sectors including higher education, associations and professional services, but expects to put a strong emphasis on three practice areas: restaurants and hospitality, health and wellness and meeting and conference planning.
