Everyone needs a good story.

We’ll help you tell yours.

When you’re building a campaign, launching a product, or raising funds, the story can get lost in the shuffle. And we’ve seen way too many corporate videos that lack heart because the creator’s heart wasn’t in it.

So enter Hotdog — a content marketing agency that wraps up the best parts of brand content in an irresistible package.

We see stories in everything — and love to build stirring, human content that people really connect with. And we believe it’s possible to create high-quality content that still juggles competing marketing initiatives and serves your quest for ROI.

So we stepped out from the ad agency world to create a content-focused team that thrives at the beautiful intersection of great storytelling, smart strategy and expert technical execution. We’ll make sure your story lives up to the great things you’re doing — by crafting editorial and video content, podcasts, and anything else that’ll tug heartstrings, cause laughs, and get people to act.
