Selecting services

Your business is uniquely positioned and needs a toolkit designed to fit. Cookie cutter solutions don’t work because your leadership, team, challenges, and opportunities are all unique to you.

Motive enables you to craft a set of service that fits your goals, showcases your accomplishments, and complements the team and resources you already have. Some clients need more, some need less. We want to help you find what you need and craft scope to fit. All of our solutions are tailored to our clients and you never have to pay for services you neither want nor need.

A little help from our friends…

We love that our clients love us. A few kind words go a long way.

We are so grateful for Motive. When we were seeking a partner to revamp our site, we needed attention to detail, strategic partnership and absolute command of development. Motive nails this and makes it fun. Not to mention they are the best humans really working to solve for a better future state. Gratitude runs deep.

Tee Coletti Kaiser, Apiary

Motive is a rare agency that truly does feel like a partner. They give honest answers and assessments and work diligently with open communication along the way. They’re not likely your fastest nor cheapest option, but they deliver high-quality work that’s been done the right way and that’s what I value in the partners I work with.

Jordan Weyenberg, United Pet Care

Our firm has collaborated with the talented and responsive team at Motive for several years. We initially engaged with Motive on a rebranding effort to develop the Gelotte Hommas Drivdahl Architecture brand and theartofarchitecture.com in 2016. We continue to work with them to help and advise us on a robust marketing system and brand management across multiple platforms.

Eric Drivdahl, Gelotte Hommas Drivdahl Architecture

Motive punches above their weight when it comes to website design, security, maintenance and customer service. They built a beautiful, cost-effective website for our wine import business that our clients consistently applaud. These guys are the real deal and I look forward to continuing this partnership for many more years.

Bruce Leggett, Codipral

Motive has helped us in so many ways! They have taken our vision and created an immaculate website as well as manage our advertising! They are are up front and honest, it feels great to work with a company that I can trust. I would recommend their services to anyone!

Casey Martin, Nordic

I’ve worked with a number of marketing agencies in the past and none have compared to Motive. Daniel is talented, responsive, analytical, and accountable. If he can’t exceed your expectations he’ll let you know before the job begins and advise against moving forward. When he does move forward on a project, expect to be blown away by the results.

Craig Weidhorn, Harp Design Co.

I can’t say enough about the people at Motive. We needed both a church rebrand and a new website, and not only did Daniel and his team shepherd us through the process with patience, professionalism, grace, and creativity, but they pushed us to stay true to the intent of our website, which was focused on people considering their first visit. The final products (brand assets and website) exceeded my expectations and have served us well. I highly recommend Motive for anyone who wants to communicate their brand clearly and consistently. I’m so thankful for the great work they have done for us.

Judson Taylor, Chapel Hill

Best in the business. Unmatched talent! Motive has helped collaborate on a vision for our company and we are grateful to work with them.
