Our Philosophy

What Is Holistic Marketing?

The goal of using holistic marketing is to think of your business as it is, whole. Because we don’t think of your business as being digital or real-world, we focus on all the solutions at our disposal. Then we allow the team time and budget to determine what’s best, always keeping the business goals in mind.

This is the goal of CodeSwitch: to help our clients reach their objectives and empower them to reach further than they thought possible.


Why Strategy?

Tactics, plans, schedules, and teams are all essential but only one thing transcends them all and that’s strategy. Strategy is about examining the landscape both internally and externally and determining the direction, not the path.

As your marketing department and CMO, CodeSwitch is always here to make sure your company is headed toward its true north (values), so that as the landscape continues to change, your marketing remains steady.

Determine the direction, not the path.
