10 to Watch: Speak Creative

The following is a feature from the Memphis Crossroads 10 to Watch issue. Click here to view all issues of Memphis Crossroads.

You can’t guarantee what the future holds, but you can make some educated guesses by watching who’s on the move. The months ahead are looking particularly bright for these 10 local companies who have been laying the groundwork and are now poised to enjoy an exciting 2016. 
This is a great mix of organizations: seasoned and brand spanking new, from a fresh storefront enterprise to a firm aiming for $2 billion in sales — and every one of them focused and passionate. You’ll notice in each is a shrewd ability to see a need that isn’t being met and get ahead of it. You’ll also see those essential qualities that make a company worth looking at: innovation, anticipation and preparation. 
There are many reasons to cheer on Memphis as a great town for business. Here are 10 of them. 

The world of digital marketing can baffle businesses, but not Speak Creative. This marketing firm gets it and knows how to work it. Speak Creative’s president, Jacob Savage, has a depth of knowledge about the digital world, from apps to search optimization to strategies. “The last five years have been busy and exciting in terms of growth with digital services coming of age,” he said. “And we’ve been hitting our stride.”

The company, around since 1999, has grown steadily. But the changes in technology are lighting the way for Speak Creative. “It’s an opportunity for our clients,” Savage said. “Traditional offline markets always had a lot of mystery as to whether it was generating a return. With digital, everything is very measurable. We work with clients, get a budget and create a strategy where we can truly measure a return.”

Making that process really stand out requires keeping ahead of the curve. “Clients learn about the industry trend of the mobile majority,” he said. Sure, you need a good web presence for the desktop, but mobile phones and tablets are where it’s happening. “We show clients social media management to increase traffic that turns into business down the line.”

That’s the shrewd acumen that has made Speak Creative grow. “We opened an office in Nashville in 2014 and have added to our staff — up to 28 now,” Savage said. That expansion includes an upcoming move to the company’s new headquarters at 1648 W. Massey where Speak Creative will continue to “step into the gap and get true results.”
