A CT Marketing and Advertising Agency



Connecticut-based Stifel Marcin - Advertising, Marketing & Design is founded on the classic principals of a good business. We work to provide our clients with great advertising materials that are delivered on-time and in-budget, and we work to build long-term relationships. It's simple really - our success is based on our clients' success.

Clients work with us, and come back to us, because of our performance - not because they are locked-in to a retainer.


No Retainer Needed

New clients are often surprised that we do not require a retainer. Some other agencies in Connecticut and the U.S. will only work with clients that agree to an annual contract. Typically, the agency charges a monthly fee in exchange for a set number of work hours per month. If you need more work than your set hours, you get charged. If you need less, the agency keeps the difference.

Stifel Marcin prides ourselves on being better than the rest, not just in our work, but also in how we run our business. We don't lock people into a contract and sit back - we work hard to keep your business. Our team will learn about your products, services and company, and use our understanding to improve. We think we should get paid for the great work we do – not the hours that don't get used.

Marketing & Advertising Budgets with a Plan

Often the ad agency retainer becomes a restriction. There's just enough hours to do some basic advertising and marketing, but not enough to do anything significant. You can revise an existing sell sheet, make some web updates, etc, but it never gets to be "big picture" marketing.

Stifel Marcin works to help our clients use their budgets to their best potential. While some companies don't like to tell us their budget – and by no means do they have to - in the end it really does help with a plan. We use our expertise, analyze current marketing efforts and develop a strategic plan to best utilize the budget over a certain time period.

We can also provide costs on a per project basis. If you know what you need, we can give you a quote.

You might say our relationship with our clients is our "retainer".

That Being Said…

There are companies that like retainers because it helps them budget, and we understand that. Stifel Marcin can work based on a retainer agreement, and we promise the level of responsiveness and the materials you receive will be better than that of any other agency.

What We're Talking About


Our web development team is busy launching some new, cool web sites, and we keep using the term "hamburger menu" around Stifel Marcin. So what exactly is a hamburger menu? It's not a BBQ Thursday order... it's the three stacked lines that hide a longer site menu, and make it easier to navigate on smaller devices. More on our web site development services.   - 08/25/17
