Making a Difference for Brands that Make a Difference.

Confluence is a strategic branding and marketing services firm that strives to make a difference for brands making a difference.

Fresh Perspective

Confluence Marketing officially launched operations on June 1, 2009 in Seattle, Washington. Eric Layland founded the company based on his strong belief that multiple streams of data, unified into a confluence of actionable information are infinitely more valuable than siloed operations and tactics and that effective, strategic integration across all marketing channels will deliver greater returns on investment than skin deep ad hoc solutions.

In early 2014 Confluence Digital joined forces with Uppercut Advertising to create Confluence Marketing. The branding, research, creative and media capabilities of Uppercut have proved an ideal complement to the digital focus of Confluence Digital.

Experienced Team

The Confluence team has a combined 150+ years of marketing, branding, advertising, research and business strategy experience. Our core team has built and delivered countless digital marketing and search engine optimization programs to hundreds of clients since 1995 when the concept was brand new. There are no rookies at the helm here. Confluencers have all “been there” and “done that” as serial entrepreneurs, business owners, people and product managers and marketers. We know how to successfully start, run and grow a business. And given the breath of our collective experience, we are able to successfully work with clients big and small as well as corporate and not-for-profit. Best of all, we are all happy to say that we do what we do because we have fun doing it. And also because (or maybe therefore) we are pretty darn good at it.

Confluence has helped drive an increased quantity of high quality leads, while managing our budget effectively. They are thoughtful, knowledgeable and creative experts in their field, and I would strongly encourage anyone who is serious about increasing the success of their digital marketing efforts to engage their services.

Ashton PalmerCEO, ExpeditionTrips

After a year of working with the folks at Confluence, I can’t imagine approaching a paid search campaign without their help. From organizing my account to writing ads and (best of all) analyzing the successes on the back end, I am confident that we are making the best possible effort we could to succeed in our paid search efforts. They have gone above and beyond any expectations I had going into the relationship and I hope to work on many more campaigns with them in the future."

We have been impressed with the ability of the Confluence team to get to the core of our need to tell our story to the community. Their working style is flexible, collaborative and full of valuable questions and suggestions as they assist our internal team. Their true interest in and energy for "getting it right" adds a dimension of service that is rarely found."

Jean Kantu, VP Community EngagementNorthwest Center

I think of Confluence as an extension of our team. They took the time to understand our business and have helped us consistently meet and exceed our goals. I know I can call on them anytime and get honest feedback and advice on digital or business strategy."
