As a small business, you are locked in an epic battle with competitors that have more resources, bigger brands, and more money.
We will help you win this battle and defeat your competition using unique asymmetric strategies, tools, and processes.
Our founder served as a Special Operations Officer in the U.S. Army. He was trained in the principles, strategies, and tactics of guerrilla warfare, unconventional warfare, low-intensity conflict, and counter-insurgency. Following his military career, he spent over twenty years in a variety of leadership roles in companies large and small. Asymmetric was founded as an agency designed to serve the small businesses that are the heart and soul of our economy - founded and led by entrepreneurs, family members, and business leaders that are working every day to win an unfair battle against larger competitors in the fight for market-share and profitability.
Who Are We?
We are a unique agency. We combine deep insights, dynamic marketing, and customized systems to make your company more competitive. We know what it's like to fight for market share against larger and better-capitalized adversaries. Our asymmetric strategies, processes, and tools will give you the edge that you need to win an uneven battle.
What Makes Us Different?
- We have designed a marketing system that is the successor to "guerilla marketing." This concept, designed and made popular in a 1984 book by an advertising executive with no training or experience in military strategy, tactics, or principles. It is long overdue to replace this dated "philosophy" with a thought-process that is grounded in principles and better designed for the modern, digital era.
- Asymmetric Marketing is a system and philosophy of marketing that is grounded in the principles of warfare and military strategy that has been adapted specifically as a means for smaller organizations to "level the playing field" in the battle against much better-equipped adversaries.
- We believe in the relevance of military strategy and the art of war. Business is inherently a conflict and most business models are a zero-sum scenario. There is no better lens for evaluating strategic concepts for a business than the art of war.
- You hire us for results, not the process. We recognize that we are in business in order to help our clients achieve excellent business outcomes.
