Who We Are

We are a group of innovative, future minded, creative problem solvers who don't back down from a challenge. Based out of Charleston, SC, we have been serving companies of all sizes across the United States for more than 15 years.

 

We believe it takes a team to win, through partnership and collaboration. We bring a myriad of experience and expertise to the table and are unafraid to offer honest feedback and advice. 

 

At the end of the day, it's about you, not us. Your customers look to you. They buy from you. They spread the word about you. We help make that happen.

We build our client relationships on four pillars…

Connection

Connection is an inside job. It’s more than just a conversation. It happens when people approach each other open-heartedly and are willing to pursue a common goal. That goal can be as small as deciding where to eat, or as important as finding a solution to a challenge. We connect with our clients to ensure we can be on the same page to see their vision how they see it, so we can best help them reach their goals.

Communication

Communication is key when working with another person, regardless of the end goal. Whether it’s a campaign, a company, or a presentation, communication is at the center. Communication must be honest, kind, and direct. Oh, one more thing…it must happen often. So at Fortibus Marketing, we communicate often with an open heart to each other internally and with our clients.

Participation

Participation is everyone’s responsibility. Whether you’re the client, the team lead, or a social media manager, participation is mandatory. We focus on engaging our clients, including them each and every step of the way. We come alongside you as a partner, not as a third-party who is disconnected from the bigger picture. We participate on whatever level is required and we expect our clients to do the same.

Trust

Trust can be simply defined as “unseen, unspoken confidence.” We trust and have confidence in our team giving their very best to each other and our clients. We work hard to earn and maintain your trust as well. This only happens when each person accepts personal responsibility for the part they play. As a result this trust builds a safe environment to bring new ideas to the table and stimulate growth.
