“As consumers work their way down the purchase funnel to the point of transaction, that’s our starting point. We’re turning things upside down and beginning assignments with a question: How will the work we do be measured? It’s with that perspective that we focus our digital and direct and data capabilities around the objective of driving transactions.”
— Jeff Haggin, CEO and president
Founded in 2001, Haggin Marketing sees the consumer relationship as the cornerstone of a successful brand.
