cultivating superior brands

Tell your brand story with compliant advertising for your cannabis business. Every state is different, and compliance is nuanced. Bud Agency will help you discover, market, advertise and communicate your cannabis brand story. Whether you are a medical marijuana or recreational dispensary, cultivator, processor, delivery service or CBD company, we’ve assembled an award-winning team to help grow your business and accomplish your goals.

The Bud team has the relationships and knows the strategies to amplify the brand voice of your cannabis company. Our team has decades of experience in all earned media – public relations, crisis communications, media training, coaching and media monitoring.

The Bud team believes that every strong and memorable campaign is rooted in a strong brand. In fact, we believe this so much, Martin wrote a book about it. Bud specializes in brand strategy and development: brand research and competitive evaluation; brand activation; brand definition and brand culture building; naming and brand identity. Reach out to us for a brand story workshop and other proven interactive opportunities to build your brand and business.

Bud’s team of award-winning digital marketers will help you navigate the shifting sands of the digital landscape for the cannabis industry. We specialize in content strategy, website/landing page development, social media, influencer marketing, organic SEO, marketing automation, reputation management and paid digital media/search engine marketing (SEM).

The Bud team gets creative in a big way. Our team will guide your brand through campaign architecture and strategy, brand development, creative development, consumer packaging, store displays, signage and platform-specific creative that talks to the right people in the right way and at the right time.

Deep and meaningful relationships between a brand and consumers are made through building multiple layers of trust. A powerful and solidifying tactic a brand can deploy is community relations. The Bud team specializes in creative and engaging brand activations. Our team will help with every stage from event planning to influencer marketing and planned giving and corporate responsibility.

The Bud team knows media AND we know cannabis. Cannabis media buying is complicated due to media companies’ ban or restrictions on cannabis advertising coupled with state-level guidelines for the marijuana industry’s communication options. Whether you live in a medical marijuana or recreational cannabis state, the Bud Agency team can help with media planning, purchasing and management, digital media buying – social, search and programmatic.
