  • I going to be very blunt and honest. I don’t care that you netted over $1 million in sales this year. I don’t care that you opened up 50 new stores around Texas. I don’t care about the new downtown office you just opened. What I do care about is your story and the purpose […]

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

  • Google searches are revealing. To creative agencies, to everyone. They’re the questions you are too embarrassed to ask your friends… or anyone. Maybe even the doctor. They’re the words you type in the middle of the night, shielding your phone from wandering eyes. They are the last thing that you want anyone else to know […]

  • How many times this week have you accepted, declined, or maybe’d a calendar invite? How tired are you of being “interested” on Facebook for yet another damn event marketing thing with some business and a bar in the lamest attempt at branding possible? How many Eventbrites did you RSVP for and actually attend? Is the […]

  • Look at you, you’ve done it again. Another weekend spent binge watching some show involving dragons, mid-century English drama, a questionable amount of cybernetic violence, dystopian nightmares, or telekinetic tweens who eat Eggos. All whilst perusing some bottomless pit of a dating app. Our holy trinity of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime knows us better […]

  • The sultry tale of forbidden office romance continues!‬ (See part one here.) Consider this our suggestion that you should hire an Austin ad agency that has some fun.

  • What Motivates You? I’ve always been fascinated by what motivates people to wake up in the morning. Some people want a job and security. Some people want to do what they are passionate about. Some people want a job to make them look good. Some people want a job with high pay. Some people want […]

  • Here’s the thing about creatives: they’re weird as hell. Do you really want to hire your own in-house digital marketing team and have a bunch of crazy, sensitive art school kids running around your office? People you have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on in salaries, benefits, equipment, PTO, and who knows what […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
