The Meaning 

Sick & Successful

S & S Creative is different from any other digital and social media marketing agency, because we understand small business owners and what it takes to run a successful business online.
 

We understand that using social media for your business is very different from using it personally. We also know the challenges of being a busy entrepreneur who doesn't have time to be posting online, but knows that it's an integral part of their business.
 

This is the exact reason S & S Creative was born - because there was a gap in the market for small business owners to have a professional marketer helping them post more than generic content. We are knowledgeable in business, sales, marketing, and so much more, and we bring that expertise to your team. We have helped hundreds of unique clients grow their online brand presences through our framework.
 

By hiring us at S & S Creative you are hiring an entire marketing team. You get a Content Specialist who will create engaging and captivating content for you in your brand voice. An Engagement Specialist who will communicate directly with your ideal audience, and help your business be seen online. And, you will have our CEO overseeing the sales and marketing strategy to support you with any needs you may have.
