About d.trio marketing group

d.trio is a clever crew of marketing enthusiasts whose unique blend of skills and personalities form a not-your-everyday agency. We help companies who need to get ahead in a noisy world by tackling their branding challenges and specialty marketing projects.

What makes us different

d.trio is a clever crew of marketing enthusiasts who have built an agency around curiosity, responsiveness, and collaboration with our clients. When a client brings us a marketing problem, we put our collective heads together and bring forward ideas with a whole-business mindset. Our curiosity drives our need to ask unexpected questions which can lead to “aha” moments of discovery and solutions not previously considered. The result: Creative that gets noticed by audiences who can’t help but learn more, buy more, get in touch, or take whatever action we’re nudging them to take. 

Marketing teams in mid- and large-sized companies in several key industries know us well—and we know them. 

Financial services companies like SunTrust now Truist, U.S. Bank, and Synchrony love our ability to take run-of-the-mill financial jargon and turn it on its head. For over two decades, we’ve created on-brand marketing campaigns that eclipse your average banking communications and actually make an impact. 

Dover Corporation, along with many of their operating companies and brands, benefit from our seemingly inhuman powers of turning their old-school, product-focused marketing into human-focused content. Prospects see themselves benefiting from the use of Dover products and wondering how they ever got along without them. 

Educators in niche markets jump for joy when we show them insights on the values, motivations, and behaviors of their audience, which form the basis of our strategies. Marketing and admissions teams at the University of Minnesota, Northwestern Health Sciences University, and Professional Liability Underwriting Society return to us repeatedly to help them put butts in seats—and we do not disappoint. 

Companies in other sectors don’t take our love for these industries personally—they know they can count on our insatiable curiosity and innate desire to crush any marketing challenge that comes our way. 

When tech stack challenges rear their ugly heads, our clients count on us for another kind of creativity—our ability to find affordable, short-term, no-contract solutions to keep projects moving forward (and trackable). We’re well aware that enterprise tech stack upgrades can be long and messy, and putting marketing on hold until they’re done is not an option. So, we don’t let it be. And if a tech environment already exists in an organization, our team can work within that too. We admit we’re not certified in every one of them, but we’ve yet to meet a learning curve that could slow us down. 

Platforms we know intimately include SharpSpring (marketing automation) and Resonate (data). We’re also a Google Partner, Google Studio Ad Network certified, and are HubSpot-certified in inbound and content marketing.

Overall Experience

From the start of our project the entire d.trio team was communicative, professional and fun to work with. They provided an updated logo which was much needed, new layout and content for our website and made the site user friendly. We get so many compliments to our new site and have even seen a boost in traffic. I cannot recommend them more!

Overall Experience

Northwestern Health Sciences University partnered with d.trio to develop the look and feel for our brand. The experience of collaborating with the team at d.trio was incredible. We had energy and synergy, because they listened to us, which is something that is truly lacking at most agencies. We had a true partnership with d.trio. We looked at the big picture, exchanged ideas, and then dug into the details. Our meetings were creative, fun and strategic. We came away with a look and feel that fit us. It is unique, bold, and it's making a statement. More importantly, it's practical to our real world needs. We approached d.trio because quite frankly, I saw they get it; that design needs to work, not just win awards. They delivered 100%.
