“For the three years I've headed up marketing at Duckworth, Tadpull has proved invaluable in identifying both weak points and opportunities in our marketing mix. Tapping their dynamic team – which offers a mix of backgrounds and skills (a testament to the culture and "secret sauce" they've built here in Bozeman) – again and again, Tadpull is able to go beyond mere recommendations, rather executing campaigns, adjustments, and overhauls at the highest level available in digital marketing.”
