look like?

Knowledge is power, but the data gathered and analyzed from analytics platforms, audience measurement tools, and our own proprietary competitive analysis process is the ultra-high-octane rocket fuel that feeds the digital marketing machine.

Extracting the lion’s share of value from the market and delivering it into the hands of our clients. The key elements of the BDV digital marketing machine are Analysis, Strategy, Execution, and Iteration.

BDV strategy development absorbs concepts like communication, amplification, acquisition and conversion into purpose-built components that provide the detailed structure and navigation necessary to meet the demands of today’s ultra-competitive online marketplace.

Our team has nearly three decades of combined experience in executing digital marketing campaigns.

When it’s time to kick the tires and light the fires, we have the tactical depth of knowledge to ensure our clients win.

In addition, we provide industry-leading response times to material issues that can bleed resources from a campaign, such as Google algorithm updates, as well as to the needs of our clients.

Those changing needs, along with the changing nature of technology, and the proliferation of digital advertising regulation, are just three examples of why BDV is continually exploring new tools and tactics to employ on behalf of our clients.

Iteration is how we stay more than one step ahead, and why our work is never over.

We don’t build for a drag race, we build for Le Mans.

The Where

Locally Remote
By design, our team is fully remote. This provides us the ability to be agile and flexible for you and your needs. That said, we fully believe in the power of personal, face-to-face relationship building. With Agile Teams in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, we’re ready to help you wherever you are located.

The Who
The Why

Despite some of the tongue-in-cheek sardonic content sprinkled throughout the site, we’re not really big on puffing our chest. Again, we’re consumers, too. And nobody likes a blowhard.

It’s obnoxious.

That said, there are some things we believe and practice that deliver to you a superb experience and results.

  • We do an in-depth analysis of your company’s goals, needs, and challenges.
  • We do a significant amount of research and strategic planning.
  • Perhaps most importantly, we set, right up front, realistic expectations and an explanation of how success will be defined and measured.

If after a consultation it seems like you’re a good fit for us, and we for you, then you’re going to be happy with our relationship.

And maybe one day you’ll tell your friends how great we are.
