How we work

1. Listen

First step is to listen and learn about you, your business, your challenges, and your goals.

Nobody knows your business like you do, and our job is to enable you, not dictate to you.

Everything starts with us listening.

2. Define Scope

With scope we define road maps to help you get where you want to go, and help you navigate options and values like: schedule, cost, complexity and management.

Our scopes are always custom to you, always hourly to estimate, and you never pay for something you don’t want or need.

3. Accountability

Communication, expectations, and team process are at the heart of our accountability system.

Clear process managers with years of experience at Motive, coordinated meetings, clear summaries, notated billing, all are tools that help us stay on the same page with our favorite people – you.

4. Build tools

Product, product, product. Product is and must be excellent at all times.

Whether you’re building a brand, a complex web presence, or deploying ads looking for ROI – or all the above – your team at Motive is expert and has worked together for years doing exactly this.

There’s no over-exaggerating how critical that is.

5. Evaluate Data

Everything is improvable. Our approach to data, design, and development is self critical and protective of our clients’ interests.

As soon as we have date, we start looking at ways to improve systems. Working with you to create road maps for when, where, and how much we cultivate and grow yoru systems to fit your goals.

6. Win

Winning is different for everyone… but it is usually a cross section of dependability, effectiveness, and financial success.

We aim to succeed at all three and never take our eye off the bottom line.

A little help from our friends…

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 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

I’ve been working with Motive for the past several years, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The quality of work they produce is A++, and their team goes above and beyond with every project – big or small. They’ve got it dialed in! I highly recommend Motive to anyone seeking a marketing agency, you won’t regret it!

Betsy Walker, Lochwood Lozier

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.
