Everything you do online gets recorded somewhere (want to see how much and freak out? Install something like   GHOSTERY.) Analytics is taking all those impressions that users make as they interact with your company online (and even offline) and using that data to make informed decisions about what to do next.


We’ll be bringing together signals from a lot of platforms and we’ll use some cool pro tools to craft reports on what we’ve been doing to create results for you.


    Digging into your online stats can feel like you got hit by an anchor to the head. We can break down all the data to digestible chunks like figuring out your online goals and reporting on those.


    We work with our clients to look at key business data to make sure your marketing is aligned with your sales and revenue goals... and if you don't have a business scorecard, we'll help you to create one. We then track those KPIs in a handy-dandy spreadsheet to report on every month with your real-life human account manager!


    What's your Return on Ad Spend (ROAS)? How about your overall Return on Investment (ROI)? How can Cost Per Thousand (CPM) help you evaluate your marketing channel costs? We'll help answer these questions and more!


    We've said it time and time again: If you're paying for marketing and your staff are answering the phone like inebriated teenagers, you might as well throw your money in the ocean. We can not only track calls as a measure on us, but we can also help you set up quality assurance recording to make sure your crew is on-brand and helping -- not hindering -- your marketing efforts.


If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. You also can’t see that the investment you’ve made in hiring Octopus Creative is paying off, which is why we’re really stoked on analytics. Frankly, this is where we show off, so we’re always going to be coming to you with new sheets and bar charts showing how good we’re doing.

Social media has got more layers than an onion, and we understand how to peel back the layers so you don’t have to tear-up. We mine the data on your social channels to provide you with a deep understanding of your target market, your customers, and your competition. Octopus Creative can provide you with insight specifically relevant to your business.

Weaver Supplies

What does it take to shake up the industrial supplies business, which has been dominated by a few key companies for decades? Smart sourcing, cutting out the middle-man, and a professional web presence. Weaver Supplies is a start-up company that sells small, disposable products like safety glasses and grinding discs that companies in the construction or utilities businesses need to order often, and which can have a serious effect on their bottom-line.
