How It All Started

Tier 1 Marketing Solutions was created when Eric Wickham and Jake McCluskey decided to create a marketing agency that would change how marketing was done in the shooting, outdoors and hunting industry.  So they joined forces and created Tier 1 Marketing Solutions, with the mission of providing 2nd Amendment, Veteran and Outdoor Product companies with high quality services based on date that would help grow companies rapidly.  Tier 1 Marketing Solutions is a different kind of marketing agency when it comes to projects, unlike most companies, we only work with companies that we know we can provide results to, keeping clear communication the entire way.  

why us?

We will provide real solutions based on data.  We actually get to the bottom of your marketing problems.   We look for the why of your problems, because once you isolate the problem it can be corrected and monitored.

We don’t do band aids.

We don’t do paid advertising that drives traffic to a crappy under performing website,  We look at the website for example and see what is driving your customers away or why it is not effectively growing organically or converting customers.
Yes, we understand you may already have a lot of time invested in your current marketing programs, but are they making you money? are they attracting the right clients?

Most companies especially, smaller ones have cobbled together marketing components as they went along without a plan. Now they find themselves wondering why things aren’t effective and the ROI isn’t there. Even large companies have the same issues over time.

Your marketing strategy and its components must work together to function at their best. We do a full diagnostic analysis on your website, social media, branding and current marketing strategies already in place. We ask the hard questions about your company, Why, because we are business owners as well and understand what every dollar means.

Once problems and growth areas are identified we will provide you with solutions for the issues and a plan of action based on your budget and goal requirements at the time to return the greatest ROI for you as possible.

Oh and we hold ourselves accountable..  when was the last time you had a marketing item delivered to you on time….?    It’s time for a change.

We are changing how marketing agencies run, by good ole’ fashioned customer service.
