  • It happened. Facebook armageddon arrived for brands, media, advertising agencies, marketing firms, and businesses. Sadly, though, there’s no team of scrappy oil drillers lead by a world weary, grizzled, gravel-voiced Bruce Willis to nuke the life destroying asteroid that is Mark Zuckerberg’s whims. Recently, Facebook and Zuck decided to change their newsfeed priorities to lessen […]

  • The client success story I hold nearest and dearest to my heart is with our longest standing client, Dr. Koushik Shaw of the Austin Urology Institute. Around the time I first met Dr. Shaw I had just moved Rock Candy Media out of my poorhouse and into our first real office space — interior-designed and […]

  • Want to know why we’re not like other Austin advertising agencies? Want to know where our creatives get inspiration for their weird, intense, effed up ideas? Here’s Rock Candy Media’s staff on where they get their inspiration from. Well, the places they get their inspiration from legally, anyway. *** Samantha Enders, SEM Director The world […]

  • There’s a conversation you’d probably overhear at 8:34 A.M. on a wet Tuesday morning in a lightly prom-stained ballroom at a suburban Holiday Inn, over a stale danish and cup of crap coffee. Scrolling through LinkedIn — especially if you’re connected to the advertising agency or marketing world — is a lot like that. It […]

  • Want the full intro to what this is about? Check part one here. The TL;DR is this: our boss is a (slightly) crazy person who is so ridiculously passionate about her job that sometimes she expresses herself in ways that might, maybe make her existence hard for some to believe. Sometimes even her own employees […]

  • As a millennial, it’s hard to imagine someone starting an advertising agency in Austin from scratch. Yes, you always hear about some cool new food truck that’s taking off or a hot new clothing company that’s revolutionizing the way you buy socks online, or whatever. What you hear about far less is someone who’s starting […]

  • I hate to say it, but the best content strategists I know can do ad copy in five minutes. It’s innate, which is why messaging is a requirement with every digital strategist we hire. The best developer I know taught himself how to code. The best people at an advertising agency, period, are a curious, […]

  • “Have my back.” I say that to my creatives maybe twenty times a day. “Have my back.” I run a media and advertising company. I need my creatives to have my back because I have to have all my clients’ backs. They’re my bosses. That’s the way it should work with marketing and advertising companies. […]

  • I’m the shot-caller at Rock Candy Media. That’s my job title. You probably think it’s cool that I get to tell people that. At least you do if you have no idea about the life altering amount of work and sacrifice that goes into running your own business, and no inkling of what it feels […]

  • Rock Candy Media bills itself as the “Anti-Template” marketing firm, advertising agency, and graphic design firm in Austin. To most prospective clients, and anyone else who hears it, that probably sounds like an enticing, or good (or at least perfectly acceptable) tagline for a creative agency. It sounds like a pitch. An advertisement. (Which, technically, […]

  • I don’t have any interest in working on an assembly line. I don’t want to put on a dumb green t-shirt and wander around the Whole Foods in downtown Austin, tossing kale and granola into a shopping cart for a stranger that ordered me on an app. I don’t want my phone to buzz, and […]

  • This year has shaken me. It has been a year of major highs and major lows. As an owner of one of the many advertising agencies in Austin, being recognized by my peers AND tons of people who are a LOT smarter than me has been fulfilling. But those moments, as important as they are, […]

  • She’s back. She’s back and she’s pretty much all anyone is talking about. Taylor Swift is a musical (and shade throwing) icon to most. For me, it’s her under-the-radar marketing skills that make her legendary. Maybe it’s because I live in Austin, the live music capital of the world, and it’s definitely because I own […]

  • Rock Candy Media is far from what I expected when I first started at this ad agency in Austin, Texas a year ago. With my previous marketing firm experiences, you had your one lane. My lane was Social Media. I am a millennial. I understand that Twitter is just shouting. I understand that Instagram is […]

  • Don’t worry, this isn’t some lame, “I love my #haters,” millennial YouTube star crap about how people who say mean things to us are what keeps us #motivated to #grind. Because that’s dumb. No sane person should ever want to prove anything to some YouTube comment section troll. That’s about as useful as singing a […]

  • Have you used the internet before? Do you own a credit card? Cool. You’re officially qualified to use Google Adwords. (And qualified to work for quite a few Austin digital marketing firms, sadly.) That’s about all it takes. Because anybody can use Google Adwords. And everybody does. If your digital marketing strategy revolves around tossing […]

  • We’re not interested in hipster downtown warehouse offices or trophies for cute campaigns. Big advertising agencies are scattered around Austin and some have become well-established and very successful. Others seem to be following trends of being in a “hip” industry. Rock Candy Media isn’t here to be a part of any trends or win awards […]

  • The thought of bubbles probably doesn’t elicit fear from most people. Not unless somebody was once taking a bubble bath and a crazy person ran in and tried to toss a toaster into the tub with them, or something. Most people aren’t afraid of bubbles, though, because most people don’t work in commercial real estate, […]
