Intro

Strength of a Bull,
Wisdom of a Beard.

“Bull & Beard doesn't just match brands with agencies; they create 'ride or die' relationships."

Bull & Beard has the strategic vision and experience needed to bring your agency, brand, or startup ideas to life in all their glory. We support, grow and connect agencies, brands and founders with the talent, teams and tools that win business. We are your ride or die partner. Whether it's building an app, finding a team or getting counsel, we are the guys you keep on speed dial. We're ready to take the bull by the horns ... are you?

Services

Mavens

When it comes to the coaching and counsel you need, it's like the wild, wild west out there. It's about time you had a ride or die partner you trust. Someone with years in the rodeo leading, growing and connecting agencies, brands and startups with the talent, teams and tools they need. With decades spent in the dirt, we're strapped in and ready to ride.

Mentors

As a wise cowboy once advised, “don’t tolerate weak coffee.” Bull & Beard brings a deep understanding of advertising, marketing and technology with a knack for distilling it down for brands and agencies. We help clients excel at the business of advertising, whether it's positioning, pricing, planning or process.

Matchmakers

We aren't simply search consultants or sales guys, we're relationship-driven connectors, matching founders and C-level executives with resources and opportunities. We find a fit, reduce your risk and make you look good in the process. Our sure-footed counsel removes the typical brinkmanship and barriers. With a stable of vetted resources and agency partners, you can safely make Bull & Beard your first call, every time.

Motivators

We are entrepreneurs, ad men and technologists who found our home on the range, relishing each and every opportunity to educate, inform and inspire. Whether it's giving a talk, writing an article or leading a workshop, our goal is simple: drive your business forward (and remember, going faster when you're lost won't help a bit).

Testimonials

Smile when you call me that

  • Robby and the team at Bull & Beard did an incredible job redesigning our corporate website! They were fast, honest, and very responsive during the entire process which made working with them a breeze. It's easy to see that Robby and his Co-Founder Jason care a lot about their customers and they definitely went the extra mile when helping us.

    — Adam Keune,  Co-Founder,  Higher Learning Technologies
  • I recently worked with Bull & Beard in a matchmaking capacity. Indeed, they found a fit... in terms of personalities, geography, and experience as much as scope and budget. They didn't stop at making an introduction. They worked tirelessly, providing strategic counsel and working with each party to help us negotiate the scope and contract. More importantly, they focused on ensuring the expectations and desires of all sides were known, clear and met. I'll admit, I was a bit skeptical about how much value Bull & Beard would provide but after this process I am completely sold. My advice to any agency or brand looking for a team or talent: don't take a chance. The more you're investing, the more you need a matchmaker and broker; someone who can find a fit, reduce everyone's risk and create win-win situations.

    — Bryan Delaney,  Co-Founder & VP,  Skookum
  • Bull & Beard has earned their place as our strategic partner. We first used them for execution and quickly grew in appreciation for their counsel and strategy work. They deliver what they promise, often more than what they promise, and with good humor every step along the way. Having worked with tech agencies small and large, established and start-up, we’ve had a range of experiences. Bull & Beard is the real deal: winning strategy, quality execution for a fair price coupled with honesty and transparency. There’s a reason why Bull & Beard is on my speed dial.

    — Emily Kirkpatrick,  Vice President,  National Center for Families Learning
  • Bull & Beard has been a great asset to Burroughs & Chapin Company. Robby, Jason and the entire Bull & Beard team are full of cutting-edge talent, dedication and passion. They did an amazing job developing brand new, responsive websites for both of our experiential retail properties, Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing, making what can sometimes be a very stressful and difficult process, easy. In addition, the Bull & Beard team created a content management system for both sites that is extremely user friendly and met the needs of both properties. They are a pleasure to work with and are always accommodating.

    — Melissa Armstrong,  Marketing Director,  Burroughs & Chapin
  • We saved our client money working with Bull & Beard and Skippaz...not because they're less expensive or have a more attractive hourly rate. Rather, we saved money because the entire process of building our client's website was managed efficiently. You'd better be efficient if you're working through Basecamp posts and to-do lists. But I truly believe our success had as much to do with the entire team's combination of talent and professionalism. First rate in every way.

    — Mark Burris,  Owner & President,  Burris Agency
  • Just looked at the work from your team and have to say we are super-stoked, very impressed and very happy about it. Everything looks fantastic! Usually there's a learning curve working with a new team but you guys nailed it right out of the gate. We were really, really thrilled with what we saw and just wanted to thank you guys for that. This project is going to turn out great!

    — Neil Marritt,  Co-Founder & VP,  Emisare
  • I am so fortunate to have connected with Bull & Beard. They are creative, forward-thinking and just "get it". Not only are they skilled at matching clients and agencies, but they also bring strategic vision that helps your brand come to life. In addition to being trusted experts, their enthusiasm and wit makes the process truly enjoyable. My organization has already benefited immensely from the wisdom that comes with Bull & Beard and I will continue to seek their guidance on future projects!

    — Lauren Roach,  Marketing Director,  Wyche, P.A
  • Bull & Beard are agency partners you put on speed dial. They're strategic counsel and matchmaking services have empowered our plans and pitches at M Creative. I highly recommend their services to agencies large and small, especially those looking to elevate their digital offering.

    — Mary Jamis,  President,  M Creative
  • Bull & Beard brings together several key ingredients for a great web partnership: competency, affordability, speed and always over delivering. What sets them apart from any other web partner I’ve worked with is their personal touch. They value having a true relationship and you are never passed off – Jason and Robby walk the project with you through to successful completion.

    — Emily Everhart,  Account Executive,  Brains On Fire
  • Bull & Beard has been a valuable partner. Sometimes the digital development needs of a brand or agency client are outside my scope of experience. They have helped interpret those requirements and find developers who are the right fit for the projects and budgets.

    — Ian Joyce,  Principal,  August Communication Consultants
