Founded in 2011, Think Tank Louisville began as a social media marketing firm. An early adopter from the beginning, Randy saw that the future of marketing and media was going to be social. “Social media for business was an emerging field and an economical way to reach customers with smart content marketing. But business owners were lacking certain skills and the time commitment to use social media effectively,” says Randy.
He built an early reputation working with big names likeChef John Varanese & Chef Edward Lee, as well as small businesses like Heat Yoga & Wellness and Blades Salon & Spa. Some of those early clients are still with us today.
“I realized quickly that the early social media channels were great tools to bring awareness to businesses and get customers through the door, but it was taking several months of consistent posts and messages to develop that audience. If small businesses were going to pay us, we had to get customers through the door more quickly. So I drew upon my arts marketing background to help with customized direct mail, email, and traditional advertising campaigns. With that move, I realized that clients were struggling with other services like graphics, web site strategies, event planning, public relations — all skills that we possessed but were not offering. The business organically evolved to help in these areas as we perceived the needs,” says Randy.
Within a year, Randy was poised to make his first hire – a part-time marketing assistant who has since evolved with the company into a full-time marketing associate, Wesley Fairman. Together, Randy and Wesley were able to expand Think Tank’s suite of services to include so much more than social.
Recently, we expanded again to include another employee: Sarah Clark. Sarah is on-the-go, visiting our clients in person and getting the real time content that sets our marketing strategies apart from the competition. As a result, our services – both social and traditional – are more robust than ever!
Now we’re poised to provide the best in brand translation for our clients. We pride ourselves in our commitment to helping locally-owned businesses, arts organizations, and nonprofits achieve greater success and expanded awareness. So what really sets Think Tank apart?
“We customize our services to the needs and budgets of our clients. More importantly we make ourselves available, nearly 24/7 (nearly). When you work with a smaller agency like ours, we are able to turn on a dime and shift directions when needed, making us better able to to nimbly navigate the landscape than some larger companies who have layers of people and procedures.”

Think Tank Louisville is a small business, so we understand that sometimes hiring professional help for your marketing seems out of reach. However, successful marketing takes more than time you probably don’t have. It takes industry connections, brand translation skills, an understanding of the community, and strong instincts to manage a modern brand campaign.
Professionals in marketing have the experience to craft memorable messages in a fraction of the time it would take the typical business owner. Quit staring at that blank page or blinking cursor, wondering how to interest your audience, and get back to what you love — running your business!
Marketing professionals also have the experience to leverage your advertising dollars so that you get more bang for your buck. Don’t waste another dollar on an inexpertly designed and executed Facebook, web, or print ads, when there are magical fairies out there who can make your small advertising budget generate big results.
Truly outstanding marketing professionals can do even more for you. Let them use the media connections they’ve been building for years to help you access opportunities you may have missed, develop partnerships you might not have expected, and expose your brand to new audiences.
