Hi. We're Brunch Money. We're an independent digital marketing, SEO, audience strategy, and content agency based in Greenwich, Conn.
A few years ago while living in Brooklyn, we started to realize that friends who were building companies needed help with their digital strategy. But hiring an expensive, formal agency wasn't right for them.
Then, we realized that their friends who were building companies or growing brands were in the same situation as well.
We created Brunch Money (over breakfast burritos in Fort Greene—makes sense?) with the explicit intention of creating custom solutions for small businesses.
And we get it, because we're a small business, too. The bottom line is that the agency model doesn't work for everyone—but that's especially true when you're just starting up, or you don't even know exactly what you need. We'll work with you to assess your goals, then create flexible options for you—whether that's à la carte services, or a flat-fee monthly option where we can go to the opportunity as needed.
We're also available for one-off services. Inquire about ghostwriting, content production, and copywriting, plus flat-fee SEO audits.
Hope to speak to you soon!
