Seven is a magical number, which means that being named as one of St. Louis Small Business Monthly’s Annual List of the area’s Best Marketing Firms in St. Louis for the SEVENTH year is extra special!

“We have an amazing, creative, oddball team here at Kolbeco, and we have the best clients who allow us to have fun and push our own creativity,” said Lauren Kolbe, co-owner of Kolbeco. “From planning outlandish events to new branding for clients and product launches, we have fun everyday and can safely say we never get bored.”

Kolbeco was also named to the Best PR List by SBM, coming in second place!

Here is a brief sampling of the campaigns that have led to this year’s honor:

  • Antennas Direct

The Wall Street Journal was looking to interview a cord cutting expert on TV antenna sales and the growth of cord cutting in the United States, so naturally, Richard Schneider, President of Antennas Direct, was the perfect fit. His article on Millennials discovering the TV antenna was on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.

  • St. Louis Parking

St. Louis Parking was in need of a new website that met the needs for all of their facilities and diverse customers. Interests range from Cardinals, Blues and office building across St. Louis.

  • Hair Saloon

Every year, Hair Saloon is the exclusive retail ticket outlet for Guns ‘N Hoses, so this year they decided to kick it up a notch. We collaborated with a limited edition, Hair Saloon exclusive Guns ‘N Hoses t-shirt with proceeds benefitting Backstoppers.

  • G&W Sausage

You can’t beat their meat, or their customers! G&W needed an updated eCommerce experience that allowed their out of town customers to have access to their great products, attitude and small town sausage company in St. Louis.

  • Five Acres Animal Shelter

Obviously we’re all about the animals here at Kolbeco, so this was a natural passion project for us! The goal was to design a site that catered to their 3 major stakeholders: adopters, supporters and volunteers, and we love how the site turned out!

Congratulations to the fellow recipients of the SBM Best Marketing Firm and Best PR Firm, we are in great company! Be sure to check out the full Best In Business List in this month’s copy of Small Business Monthly.
