About the Agency

Alaniz Marketing started in 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.

Six Reasons You’ll Love Working With Us

Business Partners

We are strategic partners, entrepreneurs, and growth catalysts, never a vendor or service provider. We are committed to helping clients achieve their vision, through a strategic and consultative process that produces maximum value.

Multi-Channel Capabilities

Buyers move seamlessly between traditional and digital mediums, and across earned, owned and paid media experiences on their path to purchase. The prototype agency must work across channels, and that’s exactly how we’ve built Alaniz.

Inbound Campaign Strategy

Inbound is about engineering an environment where customers find you, enter your sales funnel, and allow you to nurture them through the buyer’s journey. It’s also about goals, closed loop results, and ROI. If you need more leads, MQLs, and SQLs, let’s talk.

Cutting Edge Development

A company’s website is one of its most important assets. It not only acts as the embodiment of the brand, but also as a 24-hour salesperson and storefront. With this in mind, Alaniz plans, designs, and develops beautiful websites that get results.

Agile Point Pricing

Agile is a cutting edge process used by the world’s best companies to deliver complex work with a high degree of accuracy, predictability, and efficiency. We are a 100% Agile Scrum agency and are proud to offer hyper-transparent point-based pricing.

Results. Results. Results.

And not just results – measurable results. Our job is to produce leads and to nurture them through the customer lifecycle from Lead to MQL to SQL. Through closed-loop analytics, we track everything back to its point of origination, attributing credit and adjusting as needed to maximize results.
