WHY WE'RE HERE
The forts of our childhood were places to escape and let our imaginations run wild with creativity. Today, Secret Fort exists to do the same. We’re storytellers — if your brand has a story, we’ll help tell it the best way possible. If you don’t have one, don’t worry, we’ll help create one that best connects with your consumers.
SECRET FORT WAS BUILT TO BE A TRUE REFUGE FOR MARKETERS.
HOW WE WORK
SECRET FORT IS A NEW MODEL. NOT A STOPGAP; A SOLUTION.
Two main pillars support the Secret Fort Blended Model: Our Makers and a Core Team. Together these two pillars create a lean, adaptable system. The model allows us to be your trusted partner for long-term relationships or the nimble ally for on-demand needs.
We have hundreds of Makers spanning nationwide who are hand-selected for their specific category experience and skill sets. Made up of all facets of talent, from designers to data scientists, they can be tapped into at a moment’s notice for each client project. While our Core Team is located in Chicago, our Maker Network spans the country.
Our Core Team literally holds down the Fort and works alongside assigned Makers to ensure exceptional work. We are an established, lean group of employees that manages the process from start-to-finish.
We are comprised of account, strategy and creative. We curate the work and deliver the best marketing solutions to our clients. We’ll be by your side, serving as your day-to-day partners. Functioning with enhanced efficiency, our Core Team ensures stability, growth and high-quality work.
Secret Fort is one agency with multiple client-agency relationship models.
This allows each client to bolt Secret Fort onto its structure and us to seamlessly bridge the gap between in-house teams and outside agency partners. We complement your team’s in-house depth with our team’s out-of-house breadth.
At Secret Fort, we know collaboration is critical to success. Our approach to partnership ensures all parties are represented throughout the creative process. The Fort was built with you, the modern-day marketing team, in mind.
WHAT WE DELIVER
WE BELIEVE EVERY BRAND HAS A STORY THAT SHOULD BE TOLD.
Being heard is a daunting task made more difficult by the vast array of channels, tools and technologies available to marketers. At Secret Fort, we like to keep things simple.
We specialize in strategy and content because these are core to delivering the best ideas for your brand. We remove the distractions of shiny new ad objects and focus instead on how to best make a meaningful connection between your brand and its target audience. Once we identify the best way in, we determine the right media, technology and creative extensions to bring the idea to life.
"SECRET FORT IS REALLY EASY TO WORK WITH... THEY HAVE ZERO BUREAUCRACY AND ONLY CARE ABOUT BUILDING A CLIENT'S BUSINESS. THEY ARE PERFECT PARTNERS FOR ANY INITIATIVE THAT NEEDS TLC."
