Our Journey

Elevate Marketing Co Journey

Every company has it's own journey. We are no different. We've experienced growth, detours, and every stop along the way has gotten us to where we are today. 

Elevate Marketing Co. is the product of Klimb Creative, LLC (a marketing consulting company) and the executives of ASK (a technology and security company). While it may seem odd for a marketing company and a technology company to join forces, we strongly believe that we can serve our clients better together than apart.

As marketing techniques and tactics continue to evolve, technology is becoming more intertwined, now more than ever before, into our marketing strategies. Our websites, social platforms, advertising, and communications (just to name a few) are all dependent on the success of our technology. This means that your IT guy should be your new best friend! Thankfully, our sister company, ASK, has a whole team of technology experts at our fingertips! 

Our Culture

We believe in trying new things, taking a risk, and out-of-the-box thinking. Our fuel comes from hot coffee (and lots of it), online communities for creatives like us, and the opportunity to work with inspiring business owners like you. We are structured to work as a team in a collaborative setting which allows us to work together and share ideas on how to best serve our clients. 

We Believe:

We believe the work we do should be creative, fun, and inspiring.
We believe in giving back to the community through our talents, time, and resources.
We believe in being lifelong learners and the power of personal development.
We believe in putting the client first.
We believe in true, honest relationships as a team and with our clients.
We believe that good marketing doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
We believe that every business should have an identifiable brand.
We believe in the power of community over competition.

Abigail Cook

// Digital Marketing Specialist

Abigail is a designer with a knack for social media and inbound marketing. If you're looking for Abigail, you can probably find her running on the Lansing River Trail or sipping a NOLA iced coffee at Strange Matter

Abigail has an affinity for typography and she is a big advocate of writing stuff down in her trusty Field Notes.

This "chick" is an early bird and is always waking up nice and early to get lots accomplished….and to chow down on a big bowl of Multi-Grain Cheerios. In the future, Abigail would love to live by lots of trees and tap trees to make her own maple syrup.

Abigail's motto is, “Go into the world and do well. But, more importantly, go into the world and do good.”
