The RISE Team
Meet Your New Marketing Powerhouse.
Meet Your New Marketing Powerhouse.
RISE helps you plan and execute a complete, effective, and measurable marketing plan based on deep experience.
Higher-level strategy and more experienced execution for less money and in less time.
As a company grows, most get to a point where they can afford a mid-level dedicated marketing person. However talented, that one person can’t offer the CMO-level depth and breadth of experience that should steer an emerging brand’s marketing efforts. A less experienced marketing person hired to execute top-down ideas often doesn’t have the foundation to advise, propose, plan, provide data-driven direction, or the credibility to challenge flashy executive distractions. While good staff can implement, that still leaves the direction to a leadership that is strong in their core industry, but may lack the depth of marketing expertise their growing company needs.
With RISE, you have a vast spectrum of experience, resources, tools, and proven specialists at your disposal for less than the cost of a dedicated employee. You enjoy the benefits of large, experienced marketing department, yet you only pay for deliverables, not for time on the clock. We are as—or more—committed to results than any employee. Plus, our proactive style requires less management effort, and we’re easier to fire if we aren’t performing.
And we’re fast.
Too many branding agencies sell theory and “special sauce.” Really, marketing is a disciplined exercise in empathy, communication and execution, and RISE has mastered the process so you can focus on what you do best–delighting your own clients.
RISE is headed by Valerie Christensen, a strategic marketer backed by decades of strategic marketing management, franchise marketing experience and world-class marketing production. With over 20 years of experience as an executive advancing both industry leaders and Fortune 500 brands, she specializes in franchising and similar member/owner models where motivation, buy-in, and expanding the network take top priority. Valerie also heads up the online marketing team of hand-picked experts to ensure strict quality control and unity with all aspects of the client’s marketing plan.

Once branding, messaging and web development is complete, our team of content managers begins the execution of the online marketing strategy, including all types of content across company-owned and third-party sites, social media, and paid search platforms. Our technical team is coordinated by superstar Abby Walker and is continually training in the industry. Our service is built on industry-leading cloud-based systems to help us provide authentic value that will be clear to both human prospects and bot algorithms.
Our Creative department consists of a small army of skilled copywriters, designers, illustrators and production artists who bring deep experience building brands across a wide array of industries. For core branding work, we collaborate heavily with creative veteran Melissa Robison, founder of 72Design, who offers over a decade of agency and in-house experience serving regional, national, and international brands.

The creative portfolio includes a few of our web projects.
Video is an essential part of the RISE approach, as it offers maximum engagement to both humans and search engine robots. The RISE video production team works with the creative team to create a full spectrum of live and graphic animation videos for every budget. We also offer a complete optimization package to help you leverage your videos.

RISE offers a unique PR program where clients only pay for successful media outreach–a true “pay-for-play” solution. Our monthly content programs often include press releases, and when a particularly newsworthy story comes up, the client can elect to push it to the media for pick up through PRWeb, or pay our pitch team to get a placement in local, regional, or national outlets. This resource offers a tremendous asset to members of the RISE client family.
