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.

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 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

Our motives

We’re a team that is motivated by the desire to offer and be of value in helping other conquer mountains, form empires, and generally get done the things the want to do and most especially be of service to others in bettering the lives around them.

Our friends

We treasure the kind words of friends. I mean, a picture may be worth a thousand words… but a thousand words about how we’re awesome… that’s priceless.

A simple idea.

Helping people accomplish their goals is awesome… and by our read that’s what marketing really is. So we wondered… why isn’t marketing more awesome?

We decided to do something about that. We founded Motive.

We went all in on the very simple proposition that marketing can be a valuable and responsible partner in business practice. That the reputations of the industry are needless and unfortunate… and that our clients will know and understand that difference when they work with us.

We are excited to serve! What do you want to do!? Let’s get started!
