Bottom Line Marketing was born in a garage in Northern Michigan, with nothing but a love for advertising and the dream to make it fun for us and our clients. Some people think we have too much fun at work, but that’s OK, because
marketing should never be boring!
We pick our customers and partners very carefully. In fact, it is our motto that we will only take on clients that we would invite into our homes for dinner. Marketing requires a cohesive team effort, freely voicing your opinions, and trust.
