Best Austin Advertising Agencies

The best Austin advertising agencies are actually some of the best marketing firms in the U.S. At Redroc Austin, we consider ourselves in that “best” category. Yes, that is bragging a bit, but we do feel we’ve earned our place on this list.

Agency History

Redroc was originally named Corder Marketing, started by Ernest Corder way back in 1997. That was for the most part the end of the pre-internet world of advertising. For many, that was a pre-cell phone and pre-Adobe Creative Suite era as well! Coming out of the radio world, our agency started as a media firm that was really great at copywriting and promotions. That evolved quickly into other media – print, TV, direct mail, outdoor – plus graphic design and audio/video creation. We soon become an expert at Austin media, then that expertise spread to other Texas markets including Houston, DFW and San Antonio.

As the ad world changed and turned to the web, we added other services like web design and development. Then social media management, consulting services, search marketing and finally to full-service digital marketing. Our name changed about 2012 to Redroc Austin to better acknowledge our full team of marketing experts, not just the Founder. We feel this nearly 27-year history in Austin has helped us to evolve with other Austin advertising agencies, and hopefully ahead of the curve, to offer the services and the success our clients deserve.

Advertising Agency Services from Redroc

Redroc is a full-service marketing agency. What does that mean today? It means we start with strategic consulting services. Anyone can buy an ad or come up with a funny headline, but will it work? Will it grow a business and a brand? We start with business consulting. We follow that with strategic work in creative and media. This strategic focus helps our clients grow their offerings, target their audiences, and make more, often with less budget than their national competitors.

We are a creative services agency, led by Advertising Hall of Famer Ken Spera, famously known as the creator of the GEICO Gecko and the Serta Sheep. Ken directs a team of designers, animators, editors, videographers, illustrators, web designers and copywriters to build some of the most effective advertising creative in the industry.

We have also built a powerhouse team as a social media agency, working with dozens of companies to build their online and social brands, driving engagement, recognition and sales.

Finally, our media team is second-to-none. We use the latest digital media tactics, even developing proprietary methods like mobile ID targeting solutions. However, we have not forgotten the power of traditional media in an omni-channel focus to drive results.

If you’re going to be one of the best advertising agencies in Austin, TX, we feel you should understand the full spectrum of marketing and how advertising plays its part in building a brand and driving potential customers through the sales funnel.

Award-Winning Agencies

Winning awards in Austin has always been hard to do, especially given the dominance of large ad agencies like GSD&M that “own” the award shows. However, we are proud to have won some very key awards. Redroc was awarded the Best Advertising Agency award by the Austin Alliance for Women in Media 3-years running, plus a variety of other awards like best video commercial, best social video, a couple of media awards, rookie of the year awards and unsung hero awards.

Redroc is very much focused as an event and entertainment marketing agency. A few years ago, we were awarded an IAAPA Brass Ring award for best video commercial for local client Austin’s Park beating out a water park in Dubai for this international recognition! This is the most prestigious and influential award globally for the entertainment industry.
