Who We Are

We are a Team of Experienced Professionals, Coming Together to Create Exceptional Work.

Savvy business owners recognize that in response to rapidly-evolving technology, a smarter, more efficient, more cost-effective way to market business has emerged the virtual agency.

As a virtual agency, 3 Dog Creative teams up only the very best marketing and advertising pros in the business to deliver virtually all your marketing.

In this competitive dog-eat-dog world, the 3 Dog Creative team offers talent, performance, and dependable service that comes from years of supplying proven creative to businesses just like yours.

The result? Powerful marketing with impact and value that grows your brand, your business and your bottom line!

Best of all, we do it without taking a big bite out of your budget like a brick and mortar agency would.

What Exactly is a Virtual Agency?

Say you need a website for your new business. You could hire a traditional agency where the inflated costs cover not only the creative work, but the agency’s overhead—staffing, building leases, taxes, supplies—yes, you’re even paying for their post-it notes. But, you could get lucky. Their star creative team might be assigned to handle your account…if you’re IBM or Nike. Otherwise, you’ll probably be assigned to a less experienced, less talented junior team. Alternatively, you could hire a freelance web developer. While experienced, talented and more affordable than an agency, a freelance web developer alone won’t have the complete skillset needed to build you that killer website that pops at the top of a Google search every time. For that, you’re also going to need the assistance of a professional copywriter, a Google specialist, a project manager and a designer. And suddenly your website just got a whole lot pricier.

Of course, you could hire a virtual agency like 3 Dog Creative. As a virtual agency, we have a wealth of talent available that only come when we call. We utilize the experience, skill and ability of senior level professionals, building a specialized team to respond to your exact needs. And because we only onboard talent for specific jobs, you only pay for the projects you need. A creative collective of seasoned professionals with little overhead, dedicated to your business, providing you with the highest quality work in a timely manner at prices you can afford? Now you’re barking up the right tree!

Why Our Approach Matters

Traditional agency methods have grown stale over the years. That Mad Men mentality of smoke-filled conference rooms, large office suites for every partner and ten creatives working on one account for months just isn’t cost-effective. It certainly doesn’t produce the quality work you deserve. Instead, we believe in the Mad Dog approach. That’s where senior level creatives who are hungry to produce meaningful, effective work for their clients do so by teaming up with other pros in a virtual environment. From this mindset, 3 Dog Creative emerged, pushing convention out the door and circling back to the needs of the clients with new marketing strategies, inspired collaboration and dynamic results.

So, there’s no office dress up, no team of people to meet, no dog and pony shows, no lavish gifts (sorry) that wind up being billed back to you anyway.

What you get instead is great work, produced virtually and collaboratively by a hand-picked team working alongside you and your team. The end result is your vision and voice brought to life, producing the lucrative results you want, and making your marketing dollars work both harder and smarter for you.

The Right Choice for You

No doubt about it, there’s something sexy about those big agencies in large converted warehouses with their funky office spaces. But your marketing success won’t be measured by square footage or trendy exposed brick walls. Instead, it will depend on inspired creative that delivers results. When you combine that with folks who work like dogs to deliver superior service at affordable prices, you’ll know why a virtual agency like 3 Dog Creative is the right choice for you.

Collectively, we've worked with hundreds of other companies—and we'd love to add you our growing list.

Contact Us

We’ll respond to a whistle, but a call or email works better.

Be open to new ideas.

Nobody knows your business like you do. Your brand, your company culture, your team…they’re all unique to you. That’s why we start by having an in-depth conversation with you, in which you talk and we listen. (We’ll probably ask a lot of questions too.) This exchange is going to help you communicate your vision and assist us in clarifying your needs and determining how we can best serve you.

Ask questions!

We really want to know if you’re confused or curious about something. Really. We do. But we’re not going to beg, so just ask!

Know your budget...

...and share it with us! That doesn’t mean we’re going to try to spend every penny, but if you don’t let us know, we might make marketing and strategy suggestions that you’ll perceive as wildly extravagant. That’s not our goal. We want you to get the most for your money, but we won’t be able to do that if we don’t know what you want to spend.

Get to know us.

We’re an enthusiastic team of professionals committed to developing long-term relationships with our clients defined by mutual respect, courtesy, and a positive attitude. In the end, we don’t have to be besties, but it will definitely help if we like one another.





Thanks! We will be in touch with you shortly about your message.
