About Us

Founded in 1959 in Myrtle Beach, S.C., The Brandon Agency is a full-service, fully integrated advertising agency filled with talented, passionate, fearless, hard-working, caffeine-charged, idea-generating, fun-loving, late night working, client-focused marketers who love what they do.
 
From humble beginnings, we have grown into one of the Carolinas' largest independently owned advertising agencies operating as one global agency with offices in Charleston, Charlotte, Cleveland, Breckenridge and Sofia Bulgaria. We are the most creatively awarded agency in the Carolinas, but awards don’t make us tick.
 
We specialize in developing and executing ideas that are good for our clients business. No checking boxes around here. We are a NEW BREED of advertising agency … part business consultant, part marketer, part tech start-up, part idea factory, all bundled together with a keen understanding of consumer behavior and an ability to not only generate forward-thinking ideas but execute them on time and on budget with amazing results.
 
We have a media agnostic approach to problem solving with a premium on big thinking and taking the path less travelled. Most importantly, we like to keep score and invite accountability and measurement into everything that we do. We constantly strive to uncover the next big idea that will deliver big results for our clients.
 
Because we are smaller than the big shops, we are always hungry and believe we can do better. We try harder and deliver a better value. We don’t do “work” because we love what we do. We play, have fun, create and deliver great results. That’s why we are ... GOOD FOR BUSINESS
