Straight North is a Chicago marketing agency headquartered in Downers Grove, with small and midsized clients throughout the USA. If your B2B or B2C organization is looking to increase website traffic, generate more leads or produce more online revenue, we have a full range of services to help you get the job done.

Our Chicago Marketing Company Capabilities

With a full-time staff of more than 100 experienced marketing pros, we offer a wide range of marketing services, including:

  • SEO, to help you stand out from the crowd on Google and other search engines, managed by a team that has been achieving results for clients for more than 10 years.
  • PPC (pay-per-click) campaigns with professional, innovative management and testing to continually improve results by reducing cost per click and increasing conversion rates.
  • Email marketing — Still a powerful way to reach prospects and solidify relationships with current customers. To succeed, email campaigns must be executed to perfection. Our staff has been doing just that since the 1990s.
  • Retargeting — A specialized form of paid advertising that targets online users who have visited your website. Retargeting is often overlooked, but boasts substantially higher conversion rates than standard PPC.
  • Sales Collateral — Our content and design teams excel in creating slide presentations, downloadable PDFs and other sales support tools to win over prospects and keep customers engaged. We’re also very experienced in trade show exhibit design and printed presentation booklets, and high-end brochures and folders.
  • Website Design — If you need a website that is a powerhouse for lead generation, our Chicago marketing firm has the know-how to build it and has fully custom design options for virtually any budget. All of our websites are responsive, enabling you to put your best foot forward for mobile and desktop viewers.

Being in a highly specialized niche, we didn’t think SEO would help us generate leads, and we are happy to report that Straight North proved us wrong!

Deep Roots in Chicago

Our agency began as Duffy Design Works in 1997, and then in 2008 merged with another Chicago-area company, Whoast, Inc., introducing its current name, Straight North.

Duffy Design had broad capabilities in graphic design; Whoast specialized in web development, SEO and PPC management. In 2010, Straight North acquired Word Sell, Inc., a social media and content marketing consultancy also located in Chicagoland.

Our Chicago marketing agency has expanded since then into several other U.S. markets, but our heart and home will always here! If your company is doing business in Chicago or is based in the area, we know the market and competitive dynamics inside and out. We are ready to help you take your marketing to the next level.
