About the Alaniz Team

Alaniz Marketing started 2008 as a dream to help businesses grow. We saw companies reeling to adjust to a rapidly changing digital world and the marketing landscape was full of traditional agencies, one-dimensional specialists, and countless vendors peddling their particular product or service.

But there was nobody to help companies pull everything together. So We Started Alaniz.

Our goal was to build an agency that focused on transparency, sound business strategy, and in-depth multi-channel marketing expertise. Today, Alaniz is a growing company with a wonderful team and a strong stable of clients. We work hard, play hard, and we love what we do.

When she’s not working, you can find her driving the California coast in search of the perfect wave and spending time with her family in Capitola.
