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.

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.”

Liz Pearce, CEOLiquidPlanner, Inc.

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.”
