Who We Are

It’s all about the idea. The spark. The piece of excitement that draws people in. We produce sparks by working hard, hammering out ideas fanatically to create something special. Passionately exploring all the possibilities, we know everything starts with a spark. So there you go. No fluff. No flowery nonsense. Just honest hard work. Raise your hand if you already knew this from the cover.

We embrace concepts others will not, and bring those concepts to our clients with the end result being multi-pronged campaigns that incorporate brand strategy, creativity, technology, and analytics that make past strategies look down right boring. With more than a decade of experience, we have helped our clients all over the world to create eye-catching and head-turning creative solutions.

Our Mantra

Eight Legged Media started with the mantra, “There has to be a better way.” In 2007, that meant a better way to manage email marketing so it could be the powerhouse marketing tool it once was. Today, we strive to bring those same high standards to marketing efforts across the promotional products industry. We want to hold vendors accountable to their results, and drive engagement through unique, eye catching content. We deliver marketing solutions that transform brands and grow businesses. We look forward to joining you on your journey whether you need a tour guide for the day, or a sherpa for the long haul.

2007

We expected more from email marketing. It was over used, over priced, and boring. We heard those complaints, and changed the game to make email work again.

2009

We introduced ePages, our proprietary electronic catalog platform. We made it free to use, and added a share on social media tool that has become standard with our competitors.

2012

We became more than just email. We began the process of becoming a marketing agency for the promotional products industry. We introduced design, and editorial services.

2015

We’ve been enhancing our tools, and our skill sets. We’ve added key personnel and formed partnerships that have transformed us into the industry’s marketing leader.

Why Choose Us?

Not Outsourced
We take pride in doing all of our work in-house. We don’t offer services that we cannot fulfill ourselves. Our employees work directly on all of the projects we take on. Each of our team members are trained and supervised from our corporate office. Every week, our entire team meets to discuss all clients we work with, analyze progress, and offer suggestions to improve.
We Listen
We strive to understand your business goals first. Then all decisions are made with those goals in mind. A shiny new web site is worthless if it doesn’t help you reach your goals. You talk, we listen… then we throw in lots of ideas for improvement.
Creativity
We don’t create concepts in a vacuum – they fit into the standards of your industry. And once we have a total picture of your company, its target audience and goals, we’ll create a detailed plan – that also includes a commitment to stay on budget and on deadline.
We Practice What We Preach
We get thousands of hits to our websites from social media and search engines. A majority of our clients find out about us online. Other companies say they provide these services, our clients trust us because we preach the need for our services and actually do it for ourselves effectively as well.
