Building Your
Customer Base

We build the tools that
open and close the purchasing path—
from concept to connection to customer.

You need more customers.

But we need to warm ‘em
up a bit first.

You know, the steak dinner of digital marketing before you can close the deal. Building demand starts with awareness and telling a relevant story throughout the digital journey. And, with real-time testing and tweaking, that story can evolve as quickly as your customer's buying habits do.

Distribution? We got you.

Whether it’s agents, franchises, dealers or advisors, we drive business through your independent channel to build demand. It all starts with a holistic, branded marketing plan to generate prospects who are searching for you. Then, our trained specialists (not robots or some guy oversea) nurture and qualify those potential customers on your behalf. Finally, we transfer those prospects to your locally appointed channels.

That’s what you call a powerful, end-to-end, business-boosting solution.
(Kind of a big deal, eh?)

Builder's Guide

From creating awareness to generating prospects, we drive customers to your door. Or site. Or phone. You get it.

Ideas require talent. And executing those ideas takes real skill. But ensuring that those ideas yield tangible results (you know, important things like clicks, conversions, customers, growth), now that requires a bit more expertise.

Brands We Help Build

We Are Builders.
Builders of digital and analog things that yield our clients more revenue, growth and customers.

Builders in a culture of unique collaboration. Where developers want good writing, designers rely on data & metrics, and our contact center influences the strategic direction of our marketing plans.

See, likes, hits, views, follows, clicks and trips just aren't enough. We're more interested in converting likeability into loyalty and clicks into new customers. What's a million hits if there are only a hundred purchases? #Fail, that's what.
We never stop moving, searching, asking, discovering, inventing, learning, creating and generating. And we never stop shipping while most other companies, well, they just never stop talkin'.

Digital communications for financial institutions

While we don’t like to play favorites, we have created quite a niche in the financial services industry. Fugent, a company of The Shipyard, is the leader in providing online meeting and channel marketing programs for said industry. We facilitate engagement with hundreds of thousands of financial advisors and insurance agencies from top financial services companies (for real, lots of zeros there).

Join the Crew

Rumor has it that we're growing pretty fast and are in need of talent across all of our disciplines. It's not a rumor.

Send us your goods. Show us your chops. And make us laugh, for a better shot at landing with The Shipyard.
