Why Stout

The Stout System

Why it works for small business marketing.

We’re
actually stout

It means dependable (and chubby). Your time is honored. Long after the honeymoon is over we stay responsive to clients and partners. Calls are promptly returned. Emails are cheerfully replied to. Deadlines are met.

Humor motivates us

Business is important. So are souls. A little laughter goes a long way. Humor is at the center of our creativity and that levity is reflected in our work. It lifts our clients. Running a small business is tough. It ain’t for sissies.  

Experience

60 years of combined marketing and communications experience gives us insights we’ve learned the hard way.

Working for big players like FOX, American Greetings and ABC News teach you a lot.

Working with huge brands like Subway, Ford and Miller Beer keeps you humble.

Training

Experience isn’t enough. Stout folks are learning—or teaching—relentlessly.

Story John’s “one of a kind” but he’d rather have four of a kind. We never play poker with this dude. Programming and developing for Bank of America was a good thing for him and it’s working out nicely for us too. On weekends he spends time with his Gibson J-35 6 string… Oh, and his wife too.
