Rivergate Marketing – Providing Marketing and PR Leverage to Elevate Your Brand and Drive Sales

Rivergate Marketing has earned its reputation serving the marketing and PR needs of control system integration companies such as Patti Engineering, Superior Controls, Huffman Engineering, Remtec Automation and industrial automation suppliers such as Electro-Matic Products.

Rivergate Marketing is excited to expand our client base using the expertise we have acquired serving top-notch engineering and technology companies. Our team has developed a high level of expertise in the industries we serve and we have grown a strong network of key industry influencers and media contacts. This has proven valuable to our clients in driving high visibility for news announcements, website overhauls, social media campaigns and ongoing maintenance of marketing and PR efforts.

For what it would cost to hire a mid-level marketing person with general knowledge, Rivergate Marketing provides clients with a cutting-edge team with decades of combined and specialized experience. Rivergate Marketing’s team combines a dedicated in-house team with a network of specialized partners to bring our clients the highest level of service.

Many small to mid-size businesses do not have the budget or desire to form their own marketing department. Having a marketing and PR partner to work alongside your team will help you reach your growth goals by harnessing the power of the web and new marketing platforms.

The more ambitious your business growth goals, the more important it is to have a value-driven marketing partner!
