Wheelhouse Strategic Marketing Calgary_About Us_Be the Buzz You Wish to See

Focused on Strategy, Driven by Results

When David Ogilvy started his agency, he built it on the belief that marketing has impact when it matters – when it has human connection. This comes from understanding what drives your customers and connecting to your brand value. At Wheelhouse, we stay motivated by Ogilvy’s famous quote: “Don’t bunt. Aim it out of the ballpark.”

Every at-bat is a powerful opportunity to score. It’s the little wins along the way, those on-base hits that keep you moving – that’s where we learn what’s working and how to adjust what’s not so that we can continue knocking it out of the park with you.

Like Ogilvy, we believe that the knock-it-out-of-the-park moments come when you set your aim, find your focus, ground into what you’ve learned, and swing big!

This is in every fibre of what we do at Wheelhouse Marketing: coach client leaders and teams on setting, adjusting, and tweaking marketing form, finding the right position, and zeroing in on the unique power that makes your team a heavy hitter.

We aim big and build steady: focused on strategy, centred on creativity, rooted in relationships, and driven by data.

We’re Agile.

There’s nothing cookie cutter about marketing and we know every business we work with has a unique set of wins it’s after, challenges it faces and value it brings to the market. But whether it’s one owner wearing many hats, or a team looking to take it to the next level, every business relies on marketing, relationships and the customer experience to fuel growth.

As coach, consultant or campaign manager, we work with teams of all sizes to build marketing strategies that are manageable in the business and meaningful to the market.

We’re Versatile.

With experience helping hundreds of businesses across multiple industries, working with large teams or in one-on-one mentorship, we bring seasoned savvy in finding the right mix of traditional and digital tactics, across platforms, sectors, and markets.

From event planning to email marketing and all the content customization, web optimization, and performance measurement in between.

We’re Nerdy.

We LOVE this stuff and it goes beyond ‘Likes’ and ‘Shares’. For us, it starts with the foundation and grows from there.

Clarify brand architecture? Sign us up. Structure a lead acquisition funnel? Heck yes! Test and measure? Dashboards are our BFFs.

We genuinely get excited by the work we do, getting to rise to new challenges and craft custom, results-oriented strategies to help businesses run the marketing they deserve and earn the wins they are after.
