Why DogCat Marketing? Because we like dogs, we like cats, and we like marketing.
The longer, conceptual answer has to do with the common assumption that dogs and cats don’t get along well together. But that’s a paradigm we seek to change. We take things that usually don’t work well together, and combine them to find success.
Such as traditional marketing rigor, and contemporary nimble practices. Professionalism and a passionate commitment to enjoying our relationship. Careful thought, and devastating speed.
Marketing people love fantasy. Our key tool is reality. (Reality has been around for a long time.) And since customers love the truth, our marketing strategies work.
Why work with us?
DogCat Marketing founder Connor Magyar has spent three years honing his skills and expertise to offer full service, honest marketing.
Our team – mostly young, exciting designers, writers and developers – is rapidly becoming established as one of Boulder County’s freshest and most imaginative creative forces.
Our clients don’t always like what we have to say. Which is why we’re so good at what we do.
In some professions, the experts are used to their knowledge going unchallenged. Lawyers and accountants possess arcane information that the layperson simply doesn’t understand.
In the world of marketing and advertising, the client wants a bigger say. Our hardest task is to ask them to allow us to do the job we’re being paid to do. And while the path of least resistance may be good enough for some, we’ll always push you to do the right thing for your business.
Marketers are full of lies. It’s in the nature of many people in our industry to baffle their clients and pocket their cash.
We don’t like that. We don’t like ‘SEO companies’ that fail to divulge that what they’re really doing is bulk-buying Google ads and throwing you a bone with a few hundred percent markup. Or ‘maintenance fees’ that cost you money for a service you’re not using.
We’ve priced ourselves fairly. We charge for our time, because we’re worth it. But we also try hard to keep ourselves accessible to local business.
Search engine optimization isn’t some kind of after-market spoiler you add to the deck on a ’97 Honda Civic to turn it into a drag racer. It’s what’s under the hood that counts.
Our websites are built with extraordinary attention to SEO. We build the right things into the right places on every page, every post, everything we touch. The very structure of our sites is optimized so that you show up as often as possible – and we were 100% mobile-friendly a year before Google even required it.
Every page we create is optimized for almost every known Google algorithm element. So when you get another call from some distant number about ‘getting you to the top of the Google rankings’, hang up. The website we created for you is already on the way to getting you there… and it won’t ever cost you more money.
We’ve grown from one person to six people in less than a year.
Why? Because our clients are referring us to their colleagues, friends and business partners.
Our reviews are stellar, our clients are happy, our work looks good and it’s generating sales.
We’ve made a commitment not just to be good at what we do, but to remember that what we do is grow your business. If we can be good at that, we’ll keep growing too.
Our community is of the utmost importance to us.
We’re dedicated to making Longmont a better place to live and work for all residents – which is why we continue to volunteer our time and resources.
Don’t take our word for it…

What We Believe
DogCat Marketing was founded on a set of simple principles that define the way we do business, and that help our clients understand what they’re letting themselves in for…here they are:
ASSESS THE RISK
There is a risk involved in any marketing endeavor. There is an inherent risk in continuing along the path you’re on today. And there is a risk in not marketing at all. Our job is to help you find a balance that mitigates risk while moving your business forward.
CHALLENGE THE ASSUMPTION
Your customers might not be who you think they are. Your offer might not provoke action. Your marketing and advertising might be off-message.
We don’t assume much – except that we can help.
CREATE THE VALUE PROPOSITION
Perhaps that should be propositions, plural. What are your benefits? Are you marketing features by accident? What motivates your target audiences to act? We help you answer these questions through analysis, experiment, and research.
DOCUMENT THE PROCESS
If the definition of insanity is making the same mistake over and over again, each time expecting a different result, then the descent into madness begins with failing to note down what works, what doesn’t, and how you figured it out.
REVIEW THE RESULTS
Analysis isn’t just for Freudians. Our methodology necessarily involves tracking your progress. When it accelerates, we put more resources into the successful message or medium. When it stalls, we look into alternatives. Learning life’s little lessons isn’t just alliterative – it’s best practice for marketers.
DO IT BETTER NEXT TIME
We take the analysis, and use it to create even more value next time around. Nobody perfects marketing in a week: but over time, we’ll get close.
A MEANING, NOT JUST A MEANS
We have a company of which we’re extremely proud. We’re self-financed, we’re growing quickly, and we have a team of exceptional people who are trustworthy and smart. We seek clients who know that a great culture stimulates great creativity, and who want to be a part of what we’re building.
Every employee at DogCat Marketing will become eligible for ownership in the company. We welcome diversity. We’re honest with our clients and with each other, and we practice transparent management. We will continue to launch new, interesting endeavors that stimulate the creative minds of our people.
None of us is making a fortune. But money isn’t everything.
