Charleston, South Carolina–For business owners in the Charleston area, the question as to which marketing agency is the best in the city has been answered. According to Charleston’s own Post and Courier, VIP Marketing and Advertising headquartered in North Charleston, SC is the city’s “Best Advertising Agency” and winner of the newspaper’s coveted Charleston’s Choice award.
That accolade represents a crowning achievement for the forward-leaning marketing agency that has transformed itself from an unknown business startup with little more than a computer and Craigslist desk just ten years ago into one of the leading branding agencies in the country. Asked for comment, VIP’s Agency Principal and Chief Inspiration officer Eric Elliott talked about the mission and core beliefs which have placed them squarely atop the nation’s leading marketing agencies:
“From the start our mission has been to set ourselves apart and provide outstanding service to our clients. Our belief continues to be that to build trust, you need to create a solid partnership and consistently deliver superior results—and that every company deserves “very important placement.” It’s even in our name (VIP Marketing and Advertising). We see this prestigious award as validation of a decade-long commitment to take our clients to the next level in the lives of their businesses through the work we do for them.”
A REPUTATION FOR EXCELLENCE
VIP’s reputation for excellence in marketing has enabled the growing agency to attract top marketing talent across a wide range of marketing areas key to business success—from strategy and planning to brand development, brand management, digital marketing, advertising, content and social media marketing, design, and media. The agency’s unmatched reputation for excellence stems from its ability to deliver customized marketing solutions that include highly specialized services like retargeting, SEO, SEM, internet radio, heat mapping, WiFi targeting, and website landing page design.
Elliott’s pride in this latest achievement for an agency which has achieved an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) was hard to miss—but he was quick to share the spotlight with his talented creative team, noting “No business enterprise can succeed without a solid collaborative approach to problem-solving. The talented people at the heart of our success love working here—and love serving our clients.”

VIP’s service-first attitude extends to providing businesses with valuable marketing advice both in-person and online. Among the more intriguing aspects of that service is the agency’s weekly “Marketing Minute” video tutorial series. Every Monday, the company releases its latest video installment of strategic marketing advice and guidance free of charge to subscribers.
