Building a brand today starts with a strong relationship built on trust, loyalty, and the ability to reach your audience on an emotional level; to inspire and move them.

At KEMP Advertising + Marketing, we understand that brands built on relationships
are much stronger than those built on empty promises and gimmicks. Let us help you
build the relationships that will inspire your audience and turn them into loyal customers.

Who We Are

Just as we are all human, we each possess our own character traits and beliefs that make each one of us unique. The same is true of marketing firms. We all do about the same things (some better than others) but each agency has its own unique personality. So, what is KEMP like?


We are strategy-driven. The thinking part always comes first. Being creative is never our first goal. Being on-target and effective is what we shoot for…the creative follows.

55 Years of Experience

We have over 55 years of experience that we use to guide our strategy. We’ve seen what works and what doesn’t. We know how to make a budget stretch, we have tons of contacts in the industry and we know how to be resourceful. There is no substitute for experience.


We are in it for the long run. Beyond our age, it’s not just how long our doors have been open that is important, but also our average client relationship. We keep our clients an average of 14 years. The industry standard is less than 3 years. Clients don’t stay with agencies that aren’t producing results.


Size Matters

Our small size is an important difference and big advantage. Our professional staff produces the same or better quality work than the big guys, but our size allows us to be more responsive, more accessible and more affordable. You are a big fish in our small pond.


Next, we take great pride in our reputation for creativity, honesty and integrity. When it comes to new ideas, we like to surprise our clients. When it comes to business matters, the best surprise is no surprise. Integrity counts with us, and it shows.

There you have it, KEMP summed up in 5 bullet points. But of course, we’re really much more than this. We are our people; people who want your business to succeed as much as you do. We are successful only if you are. That’s what makes us such a valuable partner.
