Founded in 2011, Think Tank Louisville began as a social media marketing firm. An early adopter from the beginning, Randy saw that the future of marketing and media was going to be social. “Social media for business was an emerging field and an economical way to reach customers with smart content marketing. But business owners were lacking certain skills and the time commitment to use social media effectively,” says Randy.
Think Tank is poised to provide the best in brand translation for our clients. We pride ourselves in our commitment to helping locally-owned businesses, arts organizations, and nonprofits achieve greater success and expanded awareness. “We customize our services to the needs and budgets of our clients.
