Preferred Partners


There are plenty of agencies, companies and individuals out there who work hard to be all things to all people.  Let me be the first to say that Magpie Marketing is not the singular solution for most of our clients.  In fact, we take a great amount of pride in doing certain things exceptionally well and being the first to refer you to a partner if you need something outside our wheelhouse.  

However, we are known for being knowledgeable about northwest Arkansas and often receive requests for referrals to service providers and venues.  Here is a collection of preferred partners who come with an enthusiastic recommendation for their work based on our past collaboration and a high degree of trust and confidence in their capabilities:

{Coaching, Facilitation, Team-building & Training}

20140326-095018.jpgimageFasten your seatbelts: the best photographers I’ve encountered – period – are a couple of guys out of John Brown University who are set up in a warehouse called The Work Horse in south Fayetteville.  I’m pretty sure they are about to take the world by storm, and I just want to be along for the ride on their coattails when they are discovered.  We’ve had the opportunity to work together on a few projects, and their work is unmatched from portraits to weddings to magazine photo shoots, although they are particularly growing in the commercial photography space.  Check out some of their work at Hatch & Maas Collective, including the incredible shoot they did for an article I wrote on Chef Miles James in Arkansas Life magazine.

{Web Design}

While Magpie Marketing can easily produce a very basic WordPress website for clients needing a simple but professional web presence to enhance an overall marketing plan, we are not web or graphic designers.  We’ll be quick to tell you when we are able to provide a solution in-house that meets your expectations, as well as to let you know when you need to call in the big guns for a sophisticated, multi-faceted website including e-commerce and other bells and whistles.  Here are our preferred big guns:


More than just a web shop, Hotwire Design also provides graphic design and print design, logos and branding, collateral and promotion materials.  We are particularly fond of their well-packaged website solutions delivered through Adobe Business Catalyst at smart price points.  Hotwire provides a very clear pricing structure and lots of flexibility for their clients to add the various website components they need “a la carte” while removing those that are unnecessary.  We frequently work directly with Hotwire to speed the launch (or relaunch) of a website by providing marketing and content on behalf of shared clients in order to speed along the website process.  Visit the Hotwire website and feel free to contact Russ by email directly through this link, or Magpie Marketing can provide project management for a website as part of an overall marketing proposal at the client’s request.
