we're with

More than a Marketing Agency.

We use our decades of experience to create web and brand experiences that move people to action. But the story doesn’t end there. A fantastic website is one thing, but you expect results. So we measure, learn, adapt and fine tune to make sure that as many of the right people as possible hear your message and take action.

With skillsets from IT guru to graphic design maven, and pop culture references that more often than not result in head scratching, we bring together a diverse set of backgrounds. But the coffee flows easily, the cat pictures abound, and when we get around a table, magic happens.

we're with
We're no once-and-done shop. From the start, we partner with you for the long haul to help you grow your business. We offer web design, logo design, marketing and technology services tailored specifically to your needs. When your business grows and your needs change, our solutions and services will adapt right along with you.

Let us put our combined six decades of experience to work for you, and see the difference that "we're with you" makes.

our clients
"One of the first lessons I learned as a small business owner is that I cannot do everything myself. More importantly, that I should focus my time and energy on the things I do well and make sure that I hire amazing people to do the rest. I hit it out of the park with Sean and Joe at JCMA.

I have used them for website design, marketing strategies, brand and content development, and to answer a million other questions I've had along the way. They always go above and beyond and really take time to partner with you rather than just provide a service. Truth be told, I consider them part of my team and feel lucky to be able to do so."
– Marya P., Keystone Mediation
"What has struck me about working with JCMA is their willingness and dedication to nurturing and empowering both small businesses and organizations as they evolve from where they are to where they would like to be. They have the capacities to both “hear” and enhance the “voices” of those they serve and with whom they work. And their digital marketing skills are on target, produce results, and are delivered quickly.

You'll be right on target when you work with them!"
– Suzy Vance, Suzy Vance, LLC
"Sean and his team are quite awesome at handling our account from normal ads to dealing with a rebranding and all the tedious that comes with it. The work is great and his team really delivers, we have already seen a significant increase in clients from their efforts! We would highly recommend them!"
– Anna A., Sanctuary Skincare & Wellness Spa
"JCMA is a great resource to help get business together and moving! We used their services for website creation and promoting our Facebook page, and we received 2 leads from our new website within a couple of months! It was easy and seamless for us, even when we got busy tied into projects... we knew the work would keep going on our behalf. Thanks for the help!"
– Teresa L., TL Design
"It was a pleasure working with the JCMA team. They were knowledgeable, experienced, creative and professional. The website looks really great and is easy to navigate. It exceeds all of my expectations. Many thanks to the JCMA team! "
