A tall, cool glass of: Intellitonic

So…What’s Up With The Name?

Our leaders knew they loved the word intel. One late night while brainstorming names over cocktails they put two and two together. Groundbreaking…we know.

Our History

Intellitonic was founded in 2016 when a software engineer, a marketing project manager, and an SEO expert from a national newspaper all found themselves at jumping-off points in their careers. With their combined experience, the three banded together to create an agile and adept marketing team that delivers high-quality service to clients all over the continent. Currently, Intellitonic operates as a team of ten and continues to grow.

Our Mission

Intellitonic is an elite group of digital marketers that are locally focused, operating nationally. We provide and implement successful marketing strategy across the web, online ads, and social media. Intellitonic empowers clients to use digital marketing strategies correctly and successfully, and to tell their story clearly and succinctly. We are thought leaders in the digital space and provide visible, tangible education and work.

We constantly work to improve our craft and hope to help you improve yours, too.

Why you should work with us

Not all agencies are built alike.
What makes Intellitonic stand out from the crowd?

We practice what we preach.

We believe in our process so much that we rely on it, too. We utilize all the services we offer to not only better understand the process, but to make sure it’s tried-and-true. Helping you helps us to help you better (meta… data).

We are malleable.

We live in a world where Google is constantly updating their secret sauce of an algorithm. We’re always looking for the latest and greatest ways to do things. And we’re open to working with new businesses and industries – it really keeps things interesting.

We believe in fun!

Work is work, but work can also be fun. We value a sense of humor. We hang out together. The consensus is to support our community and take care of our employees.

We love non-profits.

You’re not in it for the fame. You have a mission and we respect that. Although we are a small for-profit marketing agency, we share similar values (like working towards our B-Corp certification!). We love supporting those who do good work and help make our communities stronger, safer, and more equal.

The crew.

Good to the core, but also a little bad to the bone.

Alex managed SEO, PPC, and Social Media for the Tribune Company’s digital marketing agency, overseeing the web efforts of thousands of clients. While servicing clients of the LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Sun Sentinel, and other Tribune properties, Alex was exposed to tactics and strategies for both small businesses and Fortune 500’s. Alex’s long-term dream has been to turn his digital marketing skills towards making the world a better place, and Intellitonic’s focus on helping nonprofits provides that opportunity.

Courtney Rambo, Founder & Director

Court is a recent MBA graduate, and former Marketing Project Manager and Google Ads specialist for SPIE, a nonprofit society for engineers in optics and photonics. She has lots of international experience including leading the marketing efforts for “The International Year of Light” under the leadership of The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and organizing sales and marketing efforts for 20 different international agencies simultaneously. She does not stop until the job is done, and has been done well. Best of all, she is pure of heart – when the clerk at the grocery store forgot to ring her up for her favorite bottle of gin, she made sure to correct him.
