Our success, our reputation and our moxie is nothing but the collective successes, reputations and moxie of our people. Which means that our most important job is to create an environment where our people can do their very best thinking every day.

WE ARE MOXIE

Moxie is an advertising agency. We are the people you call when you realize that your brand is playing it too safe. Moxie is an attitude that powers our ingenuity. And it’s how our agency of specialists connects the dots to solve business problems with full-service thinking.

Moxie is owned by global media giant ZenithOptimedia, which is part of Publicis Groupe, an international communications powerhouse whose network and operations span 108 countries on six continents.

WHAT WE DO

Here is a quick look at all the cool stuff we can do for you.

Data & Analytics

We take a dynamic, real-time approach to assessing how well your marketing is working and where your money can be best spent. These data-driven insights fuel continuous learning and enable us to strategically and measurably enhance performance.

Solutions Management

From the seemingly conventional to the downright unprecedented, we work hand in hand with clients to identify or design solutions that can meet their unique business needs. Then we provide the expert guidance, instruction and support to help them use these tools to the fullest.

Development

Stewarding technology to the forefront of our work to create platform-rich experiences and solutions, our development team architects, builds and optimizes consumer experiences across all digital channels and mediums.

Media / Ad Operations

We believe that media is content. Data informs it. Digital drives it. This strategic thinking ensures we develop and execute best-in-class marketing solutions that set our clients and their brands apart in dramatic, measurable ways.

Brand Planning

By positioning brands within consumer culture (versus product/service categories), we create attraction based on shared attitudes, values and beliefs. This anthropological approach allows us to immerse ourselves in your consumer’s world so we can make your brand a part of it.

Digital Strategy

Through innovation, consumer insights and thought leadership, our digital strategy group inspires powerful creative work that spans all media, online and off.

Creative

We develop and execute bold, fearless campaigns that traverse all media (and often the globe) to engage people where they live, laugh, chat, eat, breathe, drink, sleep, surf, share, wander, ponder, roam and — yes — spend.

CRM

We build consumer acquisition and loyalty throughout the entire consumer journey. At every touch point, we deliver personalized communications and experiences. We leverage strategy, data and technology to organize, automate and synchronize the conversation with the customer via breakthrough creative.

Mobile

Today’s consumer moves from device to device with such ease and alacrity it’s practically second nature. We specialize in designing and delivering agile, nondisruptive mobile solutions that engage people when and where it’s most convenient for them.

UX

Seeing through your consumers' eyes, we master the terrain where form meets function to design elegant, intuitive, content-rich experiences that perform flawlessly and evolve to scale.

OUR FEARLESS LEADERS

We’re proud to have some of industry’s finest minds working for us. Although a bit quirky at times (it is, after all, advertising), we all share a common vision: to boldly lead our agency and our clients into the future.
