Our Manifesto

We believe marketing is everything in and to your business. It’s not a matter of if you should be marketing, but how you should be marketing in your business. By examining what you do and who you do it for, we discover where your marketing efforts can be improved for continuous growth, then implement a strategic plan.

Your business is our business. We consider clients to be family, and will lose sleep if their business isn’t growing.

We understand the risks you take as a business owner and how invaluable you are to your community. Your business either solves a problem or betters people's lives in some way, and we love being a part of that.

Whether you are an established business or a startup, we are honored to have your trust in helping you grow your business.

Our Purpose

Our agency exists to bring the very best in marketing services and education to help your business grow.

When you start a business, you take a risk. Whether you have an idea or are really good at something, you take that leap and make it happen.

Our sole purpose is to help you achieve success in your business with marketing strategies that are focused on growing it. We firmly believe that true success with your business lies in how well you can market and manage it.

Our Approach

Marketing isn’t a cookie-cutter process. We listen and do our homework. We create a plan that works to achieve your goals and stay within budget.

Everything we do is customized for your business, and every service we offer is designed to help you attract more customers, increase profits-per-sale, and get customers coming back more often.

We put your business first. It’s not about us, it’s about what your business needs, even if that means we are not a good fit for you. Our approach is to first see what your business needs and then decide if what we do applies. Sometimes it doesn’t, and that’s OK, we’ll help you figure out the best plan of action to take for your specific needs.

Sure, we could sell our services to anyone who inquires, but if it doesn’t deliver results, it’s only a short term gain for us. We want long term relationships with our clients. We don’t grow by selling services, we grow by growing the businesses of our clients.

Our Story

From Founder, JR Griggs:

Red Wall Marketing was started reluctantly, out of failure.

As much as it pains me to say it, I failed over and over and then suddenly, this company started to form.

From the time I could push a lawn mower, I wanted to own a business. I always had that entrepreneurial “bug” in me.

I spent a lot of time in sales and marketing and for some reason, it always just clicked for me. It was not uncommon for me to offer my bosses marketing advice. I loved the systems used in a sales process, and would often be the only salesman actually utilizing the tools the employer provided us. As a result, this would of course give me a great advantage over everyone else I was working with.

After working for a couple of really bad companies in a row, I decided it was time to do something of my own. One way or another, I was going to figure it out. So I set out on a mission. I soaked up every piece of marketing and business information I could. I spent so much time building websites for products and services that could be a potential business for myself, and that was when the failure part began. Pretty much anything I did was nothing close to success. I couldn’t seem to find a product or service anyone wanted to use. No matter how good I became at building websites, SEO, or advertising, I couldn’t build a viable business fast enough to pay my bills.

Red Wall Manifesto
Red Wall Purpose

While falling on my face, I had a sales job that was keeping a roof over my head. One day the owner started asking me questions about all of the stuff I had been learning, and I taught him some things that quickly increased his business. He then came back for more advice, and eventually, his friends started asking me questions about their business too. Next thing I knew, I had business owners wanting to pay me to help them grow their business.

I noticed a need for business and marketing services that were both transparent and focused on what the business actually needed: simplified information and services for small business owners that focused on helping them understand what they specifically needed to grow their business. There was too much junk and confusion out there designed to just sell a service.

I honestly never would have guessed this is what I would end up doing, but I enjoyed both seeing the success of those I could help, and creating something for the small business owner who no longer had to search through a bunch of garbage to find real help. Being able to see businesses grow is such an exciting and fulfilling experience, and I love that I get to be a part of it!

(And by the way, the boss I was working for who was asking me for advice is still a client of ours today and his business has grown by over 600%.)

Our Name

Why the name Red Wall Marketing?

That’s an interesting question!

Here are a few possible explanations for the name. Pick which one you think is the right one and we’ll have a bonus for you!

A In 1986 a book was written called Redwall, a fantasy novel of a small town attacked. They eventually rose up and defeated their enemies. This seemed like a fitting name, as small business owners need to rise up and defeat failure! So the name Red Wall Marketing was born!
B No business likes to be in the red. Sometimes getting a business to success is like climbing a giant wall. So the idea of climbing a red wall and getting into the black ink was the reason for the name Red Wall Marketing.
C One day, while painfully trying to figure out what to name the company, JR sat there staring at the red wall in his office (the corner of his bedroom at the time), and a light bulb went off… Red Wall Marketing!
