OUR STORY

I used to be snow white…but I drifted.
~ Mae West, 1969

McKenna’s Marketing was founded in August, 2000, after the young (and much thinner!) Susan McKenna cashed out from a successful IPO, DigitalThink (Nasdaq: DTHK). It was then that Susan had a “brilliant” 20-something San Francisco-laden idea to build an agency catering to the mushrooming dot-com’s who needed a healthy dose of corporate identity and this thing we called Internet marketing (really, it was just email and banners with a dash of Yahoo “search” back in the good ole days). Then that mushroom farm became a mushroom cloud and the dot-bomb implosion pulverized more than 80% of our client base.

When the agency re-located to La La Land in 2003, our founder told her father, “Hey Dad…Remember when I said that I thought this Internet thing might be big?” Her Dad chuckled and said “yea.” She said, “Well Daddy-O, now I think this eCommerce thing, and this social networking stuff might be huge.  YUGE!!!” (Her dad later asked, “What the hell is a social network?  Is that like June’s book club??) SMDH.

We’ve spent the better half of the last 15 years becoming digital marketing experts — building websites, running acquisition campaigns, re-branding or “digitizing” traditional companies. Today, McKenna’s Marketing focuses on where we began: Strategy, Branding, Organizational Efficiency and matching the right CMO to the right brands.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1484566471531{padding-top: 80px !important;padding-bottom: 50px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/4″][counsel_staff photo=”582″ title=”Susan A.
