Our mission is to help our clients solve revenue challenges and drive business growth.

Our Story

Focused on data from day one.

Our journey begins with data. Businesses that leverage data are able to create returns well beyond average – it’s a competitive advantage that creates sustainable revenue growth, higher profit margins, and enables better strategic decisions. With data at the heart of its infrastructure, Founder and CEO James Dressing started KLIK as an ad agency in 2018 with the goal of helping businesses create a sustained ability to improve performance.

In its early years, KLIK focused on driving best-in-class performance marketing for its clients, tying marketing spend directly to return on investment. In 2021, KLIK expanded its lines of business to provide creative and SEO to enable an even stronger return for its partners. Pairing advanced data-first media management with world-class creative and organic services, KLIK is able to holistically deliver rapid improvements to marketing performance.

KLIK’s goal is to make a positive impact on revenue generation and growth for every company it supports. KLIK believes in transparent pricing, organized deliverables, and straightforward visibility into marketing performance. At KLIK, we strive to form personal relationships with team members, knowing that strong relationships combined with a relentless focus on data and analysis allow for understanding gaps and identifying new opportunities.

We have our sights set on becoming the largest, most effective, and most data-forward marketing agency in the world. And we show no signs of slowing down.

 

Data is in our DNA.
