Who We Are
DBD Communications is a Full Service Marketing Company that offers TV, Radio, Billboard, Direct Mail, Production, Craigslist, Digital Marketing, Market Analysis, Web Services, and Social Marketing.
Transferring growing companies into powerful brands is what we do best. We’ve been creating effective marketing programs, driving customer acquisition, and aligning brand purpose by using scalable, repeatable tools that build awareness and customer loyalty since 1997.
We have spent over 20 years identifying the core customers through an extensive filtering system connected directly to the credit bureaus. By working primarily with the Buy Here Pay Here, Rent to Own, Payday Loan, and Consumer Counseling Services industries, we know who the core customer is and how to make marketing dollars work harder.
We know the subprime customer better than any other agency in the country!
The Art of Storytelling
“Why do we like stories so much?”
A great story sticks in your mind. Everyone loves a good underdog story. Apple isn’t just a technology company, and Starbucks isn’t just a coffee shop. People love the fact that a great story can move them.
At DBD Communications, we believe the dream and what that brand represents drives the customer to a sale.
It has to do with psychology and the way our brains work. So the next time you tell a story, or try to sell a product to a customer – why not spice it up a bit? Don’t drag on with facts and figures – tell a story and make it engaging.
We can show you the way.
DBD Communications is an innovative and creative full-service marketing agency. Our services build brand awareness and ultimately, grow your business.

Branding in the
Age of Social Media
In the era of Google, Facebook and YouTube, branding has become a difficult challenge.
Social Media was supposed to usher in a golden age of branding. Marketers originally thought these channels would let them bypass mainstream media while connecting directly with their consumers. Hoping to attract a huge audience with their branding message, many companies spent millions producing their own creative content. They hired agencies who promised – Viral. Buzz. Memes. Stickiness. And despite all the hoopla and efforts, consumers never showed up. In fact, Social Media seems to have made brands LESS significant.
Social Media has transformed how culture works in ways that weakens many tried and true branding techniques. What we have learned is Brands succeed when they break through the culture in today’s environment. In this Social World you can’t continue to rely on traditional segmentation and trend reports to gain greater audience share… And that’s where we come in.
